Every home buyer daydreams about it, but it seldom happens. Your carefully crafted wish list—the one that details every must-have feature—matches up exactly with a terrific new property. It’s all there: a picturesque, tree-lined street in a convenient neighborhood, luxurious appointments and superb new construction. But the best part? It’s very affordable.
That’s the word from Ellen Reid, principal of Reid Case Group, about the soon-to-debut Alamo Condominiums at Demun in Clayton. “You’re just a few minutes’ walk from wonderful cafés, restaurants and Forest Park; you have quality, brand-new construction in a historic neighborhood, and all of this at a fantastic value.” Prices for the condominiums, limited to just nine units on three floors, begin in the mid-300s, she adds. “And it’s so private! Owners will enjoy a secured entry with elevator access, and—rare for this area—parking for two in an underground, heated garage.”
Describing the condos as a “house without the hassle,” Reid says the Alamo appeals to young professionals, small families and empty nesters. “The open floor plans are adaptable to a buyer’s lifestyle, whether it’s a formal dinner party or a casual movie night. Even in the moderately sized unit, there’s a great little nook off the kitchen, already wired for everything. It’s perfect for a home office, or you can use it as a card room or library.”
Is your shoe collection out of control? Not to worry—every Alamo residence includes at least one large walk-in closet. “Some units even have his-and-hers walk-in closets,” Reid says. “And the master bedroom is completely separate from the secondary bedroom.” The master bath features a granite-topped vanity and a porcelain tile floor.
The two-bedroom residences offer private, expansive balconies and an abundance of natural light. “With oversize windows and a terrace off of the main living area,” Reid notes, “you really get an outdoor connection that is rare in a condo.”
Energy-conscious construction means the full-masonry Alamo has earned an Energy Star rating from the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency and the U.S. Department of Energy, Reid says. “The builder’s attention and investment results in lower heating and cooling bills for buyers. The quality is just amazing, and it has all of the luxurious appointments you would expect, like a granite and stainless kitchen with custom cabinetry, Kohler plumbing fixtures, and six-panel solid doors and recessed lighting throughout.”
So if you love the idea of a historic neighborhood without the historic plumbing, and breakfast on the balcony sounds nice after your walk home from a beautiful morning in Forest Park, now’s your chance. “This really is an incredible opportunity to enjoy affordable luxury,” Reid says. “Once the word is out, we expect to sell out, and very quickly!”
