Kansas City 
Luxury Home Market

What is it that defines the Kansas City Luxury Home?  Is it location, property entry, architecture, decor, decadent amenities, entertainment capability or  lovely grounds?  Actually, it can be all of those things plus a myriad of other details that help a home stand out from the ordinary.

As  real estate professionals, experienced in the Kansas City Luxury Home Market, we believe we know the perfect home when we see it貌specially when the home has all the markings of luxury, location and panache.  Kansas City and its surrounding area has more than enough luxury to choose from.

On the average, luxury homes in the Kansas City area are priced starting at $800,000 with a significant number between $1.5 and $3 million dollars.  These homes typically are located in private, resort-style communities, on golf courses, on lakefront areas, or in areas with mature trees, creating a wooded, park-like setting. You値l find more than just spacious mansions adorned with random wood plank floors and leaded glass windows.

Today, electronics are as much a part of the luxury home equation as are imported building materials. Luxury homes in the Kansas City area  include Wi-Fi, giving owners instant Internet access in every room. You値l find elaborate home theaters in custom-designed media rooms. Home media rooms run the gamut from custom-designed TV rooms to basement theaters complete with luxurious stadium seating.

You値l also find homes with tiled roofs and low-maintenance exteriors that allow for more leisure time to hike on neighborhood trails and enjoy the green spaces adjacent to their properties.

Luxury homes in the Kansas City area feature large bedrooms with private baths, and gourmet kitchens that open into adjoining hearth rooms and living rooms.  You値l find granite throughout the homes, as well as Travertine/ marble flooring, exercise rooms, and special extras in master suites that rival the finest hotels.

One of the most sought after areas for luxury homes in Kansas City is the Mission Hills area.  These homes are highly desired because of the distinctive architecture and unique craftsmanship that existed in the 1920s and 1930s, when many of them were built. Many Mission Hills homes are made of stone or brick. The homes often feature tile or slate roofs, beautiful interior woodwork and Terrazzo marble floors.

Mission Hills luxury home owners are lured by the architecture, the mature trees, the proximity to the Plaza and the sense of neighborhood that comes with living in town. They're willing to trade off three-car garages and hearth room kitchens for the amenities of the older neighborhoods.

Newer built luxury homes in Southern Johnson County are appealing to aging baby boomers and empty nesters who desire smaller, yet exclusive, low-maintenance homes. These homes generally are 3500-4000 square foot, limited-edition luxury homes. They often attract people who would rather play golf and travel than mow lawns.  Most of the luxury communities in this area are gated communities located on premier golf courses. Despite the smaller size, these homes still boast spacious master bedrooms, large closets, gourmet kitchens, and a big hearth room that Kansas City area luxury homes are known for.

Many of the amenities you will find in the Kansas City luxury market include: serene bathrooms with souped-up saunas, towel warmers and heated floors (to bring the spa back home); "green" elements such as eco-friendly woods and nontoxic building materials; and technology that integrates the controls for lighting, heating, security and other systems.  Tennis courts, basketball courts, indoor pools, and wine cellars are also featured in many of the luxury homes you値l find in the area.  Outside, you値l enjoy outdoor kitchens and fireplaces, pools and spas, as well as Italian fountains, and ornate entrances.  Many properties offer acreage and accommodations for horses
