Lawrence apartment description

Home of the University of Kansas, Lawrence is a 50 minute drive from the Kansas City airport (MCI). It is a vibrant community of about 80,000 situated along the banks of the Kansas River. The city features the University's lovely campus, many shops (both funky and upscale), a top-notch regional music scene, many small art galleries, biking trails, the state's only hydro-electric plant, two top-rated University Museums, and a variety of fine restaurants (including the Free-State Brewery, known for its brews). Forty miles to the east is Kansas City, nationally known for its Nelson Gallery of Art and its World War I Museum.

The penthouse apartment is located on a property established by one of Lawrence's original settlers. The historic and beautiful property has been occupied by one family for a century. The pool, originally the basement of the first farmhouse, is heated and open from May through September(weather permitting). The outdoor spa is available from September through May.

We enjoy sharing our special place with visitors to Lawrence and appreciate knowing what brings you here.
