Homebuyers seeking a unique home with a focus on quality, security, style and longevity will not want to miss this new offering now available in Platte County’s Thornhill subdivision.
The Timespan home, featuring all steel and concrete construction and full metal engineering, was specially designed with high-security zoning to house the current owner’s quality art and valuable collectables.
“This home is truly a sustainable compound with backup power provided by a Cummings 35,000KW generator,” said Tom Johnson with Keller Williams North, who was engaged to market the property. “Other features include geothermal heating systems and a climate-controlled environment. The home is fully clad in quality brick, patios are covered in ceramic tile and the courtyard’s roof is constructed from Vermont Mottled Purple Slate roofing tiles with an integral rain gutter system. All of these features provide the home with secure protection from the elements and provide a very low maintenance home.”
The home’s interior was designed to display the owner’s original paintings by Billy DeVorss and collection of Daum Nancy glass. Thomas Hart Benton, Grant Wood, Fairfield Porter and many other highly sought art collectables have been featured within this home, which demonstrates the value placed on security and the controlled environment this home provides.
One of the many stunning features of the home is a chandelier designed by Josef Lobeyr in the 1915s and imported from Vienna, Johnson said. It has an estimated value of $80,000.
“It is offered at a price which is well below replacement value for the fully engineered style and commercial-grade construction of this home,” Johnson said. “The $2,495,000 listing price provides buyers a great opportunity. Pictures during construction are available showing the oversized footings, grade beam, steel beams, metal truss systems, membrane roof application which ensures the true dedication to quality and style of construction for this Timespan home.”
The 11/2-story home has five bedrooms, 51/2 bathrooms and a four-car garage. The home exudes quality throughout with tile flooring, gourmet kitchen with large island, pantry, wet bar, formal dining, breakfast room and so much more.
There are four fireplaces throughout the home, vaulted ceilings, loft area, den, recreation room, main-floor master and enclosed porch. The two-acre property also includes a pool house with showers so the new homebuyers can build the perfect pool for their needs.
“This house is truly unbelievable,” Johnson said. “From its high-quality, commercial grade construction to the amazing finishes, it represents a rare opportunity to own one of the premier homes in Kansas City.”
This estate home is located just northwest of Tiffany Greens Golf Course Clubhouse. The new homeowners will also enjoy easy access to the new Tiffany Market Center, Zona Rosa, Walmart, Lowe’s, Home Depot and Kansas City International Airport, as well as access to all of Kansas City’s amenities. The Kaufmann Center for the Performing Arts, The Country Club Plaza, The Crossroads and Westport are just minutes away via Interstate 29, which is also easily accessible from this home’s location in Platte County’s Thornhill subdivision. Children attend the award-winning Park Hill Schools.
