The couple who is selling this home fell in love with Brookside during the Art Fair a few years ago. They are from Detroit, jobs were bringing them to the Midwest, and they had never been to Kansas City. They wanted to buy a home in a vibrant, lively area, within an easy walk or bike ride to shops and amenities. After I showed them several homes in the Brookside area, this is the one they chose. Now their careers are taking them to another state, and although they are sad to leave our neighborhood–their well loved and cared for home is on the market, ready for new owners.
This is a three story home that feels welcome and comfortable when you walk in the front door. It offers four bedrooms, three full baths and one half baths, a two car garage, second floor laundry and it is move in ready!
Isn’t this a fantastic kitchen? So spacious, with plenty of (granite) counter space, a pantry, large island plus a desk area. Right next to the kitchen is the mudroom with cubbies and a bench–the perfect spot to land when coming in from the garage. Easy to hang backpacks, keys and store messy boots!
Here’s a photo of the master suite. This large room leads to a master bath with shower, double vanities and a walk in closet, customized by Kansas City Closets.
I think this is my favorite room in the home. It’s a bright and sunny nook on the second floor, with windows on two sides. This is the perfect spot for a small office, reading room or child’s playroom. Through the door to the left is the family room, featuring a home theater –all components stay with the property.
Also off the kitchen is this cozy covered porch, ideal for outdoor dining and entertaining. The yard has been recently landscaped, and large trees trimmed away from the house.
Another unique feature is the third floor, with two bedrooms and a full bath. The current owners loved this space for frequent family visitors, who had their own private retreat at the top of the steps. This area could also be used for teens, a homework area, or more formal work from home office space.
A few other benefits this home offers: “The Nest” thermostat, an energy saving device that is controlled via a phone app; zoned HVAC and roof (both less than 8 years old); fresh interior paint; new carpet in master bedroom; hardwood floors and a stone basement. Of course the best feature may be the location…just a short walk up the street to all the amenities Brookside offers: grocery, independently owned shops and boutiques; post office, restaurants, Farmer’s Market, bus stop and the Trolley Track Trail. Offered at $430,000
I am really going to miss this family when they move on…but I know the next owners of this home will love it as much as they did! Contact me if you would like to tour this property in person.
