Like a jeweled crown, the raised ceiling of illuminated gold in the living room of residence No. 2103 at The Plaza in Clayton embodies the beauty of this extraordinary condominium.

“This exclusive unit is on the 21st floor – the highest floor that this floor plan is offered on,” notes Ellen Reid, principal and broker of Reid Case Group. “It flows with abundant space but has a cozy element to it, offering a combination of daily comforts and entertaining [opportunities].”

With 3 bedrooms and 3½ bathrooms, exquisite French details found throughout captivate, from the beamed ceiling and terra-cotta floors of the custom-designed kitchen to the elegance of the wine tasting room and wine cellar. Fit for royalty, the master bathroom boasts his-and-her vanities and closets, a frameless glass shower, a free-standing tub that lies adjacent to a fireplace and an abundance of custom built-ins. The heart of the home, the expansive, open kitchen and family room, fills with natural light from south-facing windows and allows access to one of two private terraces that boast views of the Arch and treetops.

“The Plaza holds a special place for me,” Reid declares, having launched her 16-plus-year career at this location, where she recently sold residence No. 2503 for $3.2 million “It gives me much pleasure to educate prospective buyers on this one-of-a-kind building, from the timeless, neoclassical architecture to the premier, world-class amenities and services.”
