A Life of Luxury 3


Luxury. We watch it on television on shows about the homes of the rich and famous and thumb through pages of it in In Style Magazine. But did you know that there are pockets of luxury right here in Kansas City? And no, not just in Mission Hills or on Ward Parkway. Some of the most luxurious homes are right in our own backyards!

The Northland has come from being the fledgling community to the north to becoming a place where the discerning have the space and freedom to truly make their housing dreams come true. In our Home issue, we’ve gathered three of the crème de la crème, the homes that make us dream, that inspire us and for a lucky few, we may even call home someday.

To find these oases of luxury, we turned to the experts—the team at Wolfe~Sweeney & Courntey. Among their listings, they found three houses that will kick your real estate daydreams into overdrive! In the grand tradition of House Hunters, let’s go shopping!

The Court

6524 Ridge Road, Parkville

Anyone up for a game of hoops? That’s right, for the athletic family, this seven bedroom, six bath home located in the Estate section of The National also features an indoor full size basketball court! If hoops aren’t your game, then grab a racket for a game of tennis doubles.

This home is truly set up for the family that spends time together. In addition to the courts, there’s a full game room with plenty of room for a game of billiards or table tennis. For the family golf pro, the home is located near the #1 green and 23-acre practice facility.

With panoramic views of the artfully landscaped grounds, you’ll definitely be tempted to do a little outdoor entertaining. Luckily, the home also features a full outdoor kitchen and lounge area. For a $2.7 million, you too can live like a professional athlete!

On the Waterfront

5909 Julian Drive, Parkville

For the erstwhile sailors out there, Riss Lake offers a bit of nautical beauty in the Midwest. This five bedroom, five bathroom stunner offers not only spectacular views of the lake, but also two concrete tiled decks and a resort like private pool. There is nothing better than sunning in your own private oasis!

While the outdoor space may be what lures you to this property, the interiors are what will make you want to stay. Every window features a stunning view. For entertaining, the open concept allows your guests to ebb and flow organically around a large center island in a well-appointed gourmet kitchen. In the spring and mild summer days, the party can even go outside with a sunroom and extended deck that is perfect for hosting impromptu gatherings. All this and the most exclusive address in the Northland can be yours for $3.3 million.

The Balcony

6924 Watson’s Country Lane, Parkville

Oh Romeo, Romeo, where for art thou, Romeo? Maybe this scene won’t be recreated but the romantic architecture may inspire some proclamations of love of its own! Each of the six bedrooms of this gorgeous home features its own private bath and balcony, overlooking the breathtaking Signature 18th green of The National Golf Course.

This home truly is the height of luxury. Take your elevator down to the lower level to relax in your in-home cinema suite with custom seating, wet bar and private butler kitchen. (Butler not included!) For the more active set, this home also features an indoor sports court. Finished with impeccable landscaping, this home truly defines the idea of a home being your castle. For $2.95 million, you will feel that nothing can spoil your own slice of paradise.
