Kansas City Dream Homes

Mr. Beaux and I had a lovely Valentine's Day 
and spent the night at a beautiful historic hotel 
in the Country Club Plaza area.  
One of my favorite things to do 
is look at beautiful homes 
and I was perusing the homes for sale 
nearby that morning on my iphone app.  
I told you it was one of my favorite things to do...  
I came across this beauty! 
I thought it would be fun to do a weekly 
or bimonthly series on Kansas City Homes.  
Kansas City has a rich history of architecture 
that I feel is kept a secret!  
Well, I want to share it with you...  
One of the first things that we do when visitors 
from out of state come to our neck of the woods 
is to drive down to the Ward Parkway area.  
It is full of homes just like this one shown.  
Our friends and relatives are always amazed 
that Kansas has an area such as this.  
I guess they were picturing wheat fields and cows... 
Let's go inside...  
This home is currently for sale,  
I'll save the price until the end...  
It was built in 1926 when J.C. Nichols 
was developing the area across 
the state line from Missouri.  
I believe this home was built in a French Eclectic Style...
 This home was built for the "affluent" of Kansas City 
and boasts 5 bedrooms and 5 full and 2 half baths. 
Much of the character of the home remained intact 
when it was renovated by Gene Fritzel 
around 2006 from what I can gather. 
The listing states that it has 
an expansive kitchen and hearth room...
with 20 foot vaulted ceilings.

This living area leads to a pretty sunroom.  
I'm loving that chandy!
Even the sunroom has a pretty chandelier. 
Here is where I will be taking my morning coffee 
thank you very much...  
Overlooking the Mission Hills Country Club golf course. 
I'd take some green like this right now!
What a huge balcony area! 
They don't show the master bedroom 
but it is supposed to have a large master bath 
and a "massive" third level closet.  
It also has a sauna and a safe room 
with bank vault doors... 
I'm sure that the H's stand for something... 
The billiards room and second kitchen 
is on this lower level.  
I like how them added a little bit of 
contemporary in the mix. 
A great space for entertaining...
See how it opens all the way to the outside...
The media room and second kitchen...
The billiards room with some kind 
of dead animal on the pool table.  
Maybe that's a sport for the VERY rich...  
Hit the ball in the mouth of the bear??? 
I hope you enjoyed the tour.  
This "Little House On The Prairie" 
can be yours for $4,395,000.00! 
You can see the original listing 

Until Next Time,
Beaux R'eves,
