Make Every Day Feel Like Vacation

This home at The National is an oasis in the middle of Kansas City

Spectacular is one of the many words to describe this estate home on the #5 Fairway at The National Golf Club of Kansas City. Inspired by the love of Santa Fe, New Mexico, this custom-built home was designed to let you vacation at home and feel as though you are thousands of miles away. From the stucco exterior to the imported barrel tile roof, authenticity abounds. 

The new owner fell in love with this incredible home the minute he walked through the front doors. He saw the potential of what updates would do and the location on the golf course with the incredible views from every room gave him the incentive to make this home his own. The plans started immediately with over $1.2 million in amazing updates. His builder was contacted and a game plan was put in place for all the interior changes. 

The backyard was full of trees and it was this owner’s dream to have a fantastic pool oasis. Several pool companies were researched until the perfect one was found to get plans underway!  A custom gunite pool was built with a ledged entry sun deck, jacuzzi, waterfalls, fountains, gas flames, and sprayers. The outdoor kitchen rounds out this perfect entertaining space with a Viking grill on the covered deck, which is pool-level. All of the old landscaping was removed with a new cleaner look and style completed by Jones Brothers Lawn Care. Rock beds were installed with plantings, enormous rock walls, a new sprinkler system, and various trees and bushes. 

The entire interior has a new look with a lighter color to enhance the features. A full kitchen was added on the lower level, along with a fabulous climate-controlled wine cellar showcasing custom cabinets. 
This home at 6521 Ridge Road in Parkville is being marketed by Wolfe-Sweeney & Courtney with Reece Nichols Parkville.
