I have loved this house for so long. I drive by it every day on my way to work, and I just about drove into the pond at Loose Park when I spotted the for sale sign in the yard on Tuesday. I had an opportunity to tour the inside this week, and the interior definitely lived up to my expectations. You enter into an open living area with walls of windows and beautiful views of a courtyard and Loose Park in the distance. The vantage point allows you to see the water of the pond – a very pretty sight. The agent didn’t mention this, but I was curious if it was built with passive solar construction to maximize the benefits of the sun. It seems like it very well could be by the orientation, the overhangs and shading, the thermal mass (brick), but I have no knowledge of this to be factual – just a hunch. I love the contemporary design, the walls of windows, the natural materials. It is a very special property.
The home is listed with Susan Palmer of Reece and Nichols. It is located on the northeast corner of 52nd and Wornall. South of Plaza facing Loose Park.
