Matfield Green house description

Those who have been here know: Not much beats the tallgrass prairie in serene beauty. The Flint Hillls in east-central Kansas were never plowed, and now form the last remaining of America’s original “sea of grass” where hundreds of thousands of cattle roam almost like in the old days of the buffalo. The prairie offers stunning views as well as pastoral settings along its many creeks and rivers.

At the edge of the small town Matfield Green Elaine’s two-story home is available for weekenders and vacationers, or for an extended stay.
The house is idyllic and comfortable, restored with a good eye and with the wise use of original materials.
Filled with the work of regional artists and lots of books, this home is a wonderful getaway for artists and writers.

The two bedrooms and bathrooms, and the living and open kitchen are pleasantly furnished with well-chosen regional antiques. Two porches and a large and well-maintained garden allow for great comfort outdoors.

The tracks of the Santa Fe railroad are nearby. The house is located on the north side of town just off Highway #177, a National Scenic Byway.
