Eco-Friendly House, 4 Bedrooms, 4 Baths, (Sleeps 8) Perfect Kansas Views
Perfect for a weekend getaway or an extended stay. Best views in Kansas. Our environmentally custom built home is over-looking Clinton Lake between Lawrence and Topeka. This is a contemporary haven perfect for tranquil, rural living, but with the convenience of nearby cities. Rock Chalk Park is 7 min. away, Lawrence is 10 minutes, Topeka is 25 minutes, Clinton Park marina is 10 minutes and a small boat ramp is 4 minutes away.
The home has two levels with an open floor plan with plenty of private outdoor space. The upper level has 2 decks and the lower level has a large patio. The property is on 80 acres of land adjoining the Lake property. We thought of the environment when planning this home. It has geothermal HVAC with zoned radiant floor heat, energy efficient appliances, passive solar design and concrete and metal construction.
Modern comforts and conveniences of this furnished home include four bedrooms (king comfort- select and daybed with trundle on upper level and queen comfort-select and king comfort select bed on lower level), two bathrooms on each level and an open living, dining, and kitchen area. The upper level bathrooms (sink and toilet) share a jetted-tub, shower combo. (Jack and Jill style) The lower level is the same, but shares a shower only. They both have 2 shower heads. The upper kitchen is a full kitchen. The lower level has a refrigerator, dishwasher and microwave.
This is a very unique home that you will enjoy for any occasion. (perfect for a wedding or any other special event)
We will help make your stay an enjoyable one.

We purchased this land in 2002 to enjoy the second half of our lives. 523 had a life before as a 30 year old modular home. We removed it and built an eco-friendly home on the same footprint. We wanted to be able to use it for our family when they come to visit, but want to share it with those who want a very special experience. Welcome
Owner purchased this House in 2006
What makes this House unique
The best part of spending time at 523 is sitting and enjoying the peace, solitude and view. But if you want more, you are just minutes away from Lawrence or Topeka.

Great modern very clean house, with amazing views and comfortable Southwest charm.
Our group consisted of five 60-something high school friends who annually get together somewhere near Lawrence. The house is very modern, yet warmed by the Southwestern decor (be sure to check out the art collection throughout the house) and both forced air and in-floor heating. The views toward the lake are wonderful, especially the winter sunsets. The furnishings are in good condition and comfortable. We all slept comfortably as well. The kitchen had all we needed (we did cook meals) and the whole house was exceptionally clean. As an added benefit it was an easy drive into Lawrence. The directions are very detailed - don't let the length scare you. They are actually quite easy to follow and the house is easy to find. Given the exceedingly cold weather, we only barely used the decks, but there are two separate decks and a patio, all with furniture. The owners were very easy to contact and to deal with. We had a great weekend.
A beautiful hidden gem
We had our outdoor wedding here it was an amazing view, amazing setup and overall perfect!!!!
Lovely country home
This was a perfect spot for two families to gather for a weekend. The house is beautiful and well-furnished/equipped. The view of the rolling hills and the lake is gorgeous and the porches provide a comfortable spot to enjoy the scenery.
An idyllic setting for getting away and making memories
We had a great time. We went down to the lake and paddle boarded. The kids strung up their hammocks and hung out. We watched movies on their DVD player and play the card game apples to apples but they had available. Lots of pots and pans to cook with. I would suggest that they labeled the kitchen cabinets to make things easier but they had all the essentials. The home is done In a southwestern style that is very enjoyable. You will love it. There are some openings in the beams that allows some light and noise to pass through from room to room so be prepared with a sound machine and perhaps an eye mask if you're easily awoken. This would not keep me from staying there again though
Lovely home for graduation celebration
We used this lovely home for a graduation celebration. With two kitchens, a large patio for seating and balconies overlooking the lake view, it was perfect for our party. The garage space worked beautifully for the grads to have their signing table and picture displays. The house was very clean and nicely furnished. The owner was kind enough to meet with us a month in advance so that we could plan for seating and decorating.
We are only 7 min. from the new Rock Chalk Park where the KU Relays and many other sporting events will be held. 10-20 min. from Lawrence, 20-30 min. from Topeka. Close access to a boat ramp and marina nearby.
