Pick of the Week – Historic Landmark Home in Brookside
This home for sale, listed by Karen Holcomb with Prudential, is designate as a Historic Kansas City Landmark. According to the listing, it was the second home well-known Kansas City developer, J.C. Nichols, built for his family. It sits high atop a hill with beautiful views of Brookside Boulevard below. I love the indoor and outdoor patio spaces placed strategically on the east side to take in the views, and don’t you think that the spacious foyer and living room would make a nice impression on guests? According to the listing description, “the Midwest style home is built of Native limestone. The exterior walls are 24 inch thick with 18 inch deep windowsills. Wilder & Wight were the architects who also designed the Nelson Atkins Museum.” This house has quite an impressive pedigree; I anticipate a quick sale.
