Residing in a quaint, established Clayton neighborhood, this sophisticated townhome impresses with a brick façade, lush gardens and a stunning pool area, including a sauna. Imagine waking up in the airy master suite, with a cathedral ceiling, an ornate fireplace and patio access. Start your day with a soothing steam shower in the master bath. Then, fix a breakfast plate in the elongated kitchen, with a delightful eat-in counter, which opens to the well-appointed family room. Take in the sunshine out on the expansive fourth-story deck, offering incredible views of the downtown Clayton skyline. Later, invite guests over to dine al fresco in the dreamy side yard or inside the elegant dining room, which connects with the light-filled living room. To finish the evening, take the elevator down to the delightful recreation area, complete with a handsome bar. All of this and more lies within walking distance of urban draws.

This 4-bedroom, 4 full-bathroom and 1 half-bathroom home in Clayton is listed for $1.785 million.
