Circa 1914: If “happy” described a home, you’ll find it in this light-filled, 3+ bedroom cottage-style home in University City at the top of a short non-thru street, where the curb appeal begins with freshly painted gray original wood-siding and a fun yellow door. This 1 1/2 story home blends classic charm with modern updates that include original refinished hardwood flooring, coffered ceilings, a butler’s pantry & a cheery 3-season sun porch that can be your own petite greenhouse. The rehabbed kitchen (which includes white shaker cabinets & quartz countertops) and bathroom were designed to maximize space, enhance functionality & provide a modern yet timeless/classic feel to this home. Expanded bedroom closets are a surprise for a house of this age & are a clothing lover’s dream! The hidden upstairs bonus room adds to the charm, and a brand-new egress window fills the walkout lower-level bedroom with light. Don’t miss this rare opportunity to live 2 miles from downtown Clayton & 5 minutes from the Loop.
