Kansas City estate description

Our home is a large colonial farm home located on five picturesque acres and surrounded by hundreds of acres of farm land. Located 15 miles north of the KCI Airport between Kansas City and St. Joseph, MO, one has access to all the attractions and activities in both cities and everywhere in between.

The home boasts 16 rooms within its spacious 5,000 square feet including:
• 4 bedrooms which comfortably sleep 21 people
• a group room
• library
• dining room
• gourmet kitchen
• two fireplaces
• upstairs gathering room
• courtyard
• and a screened-in porch

The property also features a rustic 3,500 square foot barn. It is perfect for any larger indoor gathering with open space for a barn dance, family reception, or other event.

Open acreage between the home and barn, allows your imagination to run wild. The grounds offer a large, level area that is as large as a professional football field. It can accommodate any outdoor event -- from an outdoor picnic to a football game at a family reunion.
With its location being 15 miles north of the Kansas City International Airport it provides the perfect location for out of town guests coming for any occasion.

It is also close to shopping in Weston, Zona Rosa, Atchison, St. Joseph, and is just 45 minutes from the Plaza. For guests who want to explore the area, we provide a list of restaurants and nearby shopping to make a fun experience as convenient as possible. We are close to several state parks, wineries, historical sites, museums, and sports arenas, race tracks, theme parks, and more.

For those who want to make the most of their time at the home, you may also cook your own meals in our gourmet kitchen or hire outside caterers. We have two ovens, two stoves, two refrigerators, a dishwasher, microwave, and ample counter space. We have dishes and silverware you may use as well.

For groups who do not have a specific agenda, we have books, games, and music that guests may borrow to enhance their experience. Free wireless Internet is available as well.

The house comfortably sleeps 21 adults. Our mattresses were custom-made by Hawn Bedding in Lee’s Summit, Missouri. Sixteen of the beds are extra-long twins and the remaining four beds are unique bunk beds with attached stairs and plenty of storage. The extra-long twin beds can easily be joined to create a larger sleeping area.

Take in the fresh air and beautiful scenery that surrounds the home. You will find yourself stepping back into a piece of American history during a simpler time filled with sun-brightened days, warm afternoons in the shade, and natural beauty as far as the eye can see. Whatever the season, the home offers a relaxing and rejuvenating environment.

The home offers a warm, safe, beautiful environment where you can relax, get energized, brainstorm, or accomplish whatever you wish. When you reserve the home for the weekend, or the week, your group is the only one in the residence, which gives you complete privacy. However you spend your time, you can be assured that it will be a special personal experience. We believe your experience will be so positive that finding a reason to come back is all you think about as you drive away.

We do have satellite TV and a DVD player.
We are not fully handicapped accessible.
