Year Purchased: 1949
About: This recently renovated, charming Country Estate was purchased by my grandparents in 1949 to expand their farmland. As a lifelong Topekan, I like to share this special place with others. This home has been modernized and updated over the past several years, and is waiting to be enjoyed by families and groups looking to escape from the chaos of daily life, and relax in a comfortable, yet spacious setting.
Why Maple Hill, KS, USA:
Just take a few minutes to sit and watch the sunset over the Flint Hills, or listen to the sounds of the songbirds in the day, or the crickets, coyotes, and other country critters in the evening, and you will discover the beauty that exists hidden in this part of Kansas.
The Unique Benefits at this Estate:
Wildlife, wildflowers, and pure country living as viewed in all directions, draw visitors to this lovely and unique home. From its impressive architecture, to its elegant, but home-like comforts inside and out, everyone is sure to be impressed. Located just one mile from Interstate 70, for those individuals that still want to stay connected, local businesses and 24 hour shopping is available less than 5 minutes from this Country Estate.
