Mediterranean Manor
Situated on a prominent lot in an upscale suburban Kansas City neighborhood, this 6,300 square foot Mediterranean style house features two circular towers framing a grand arched entryway. A pair of richly stained mahogany doors and sidelights are adorned with wrought iron grilles and beveled glass. Buff-colored stucco walls combine with strategically placed limestone embellishments, a concrete tile roof, and decorative wood brackets to give this house its timeless Mediterranean feel. Highlights of the interior include a dramatic two-story entry hall with marble tile floors and a sweeping, curved staircase with an ornate wrought iron balustrade. A two-story circular library houses the homeowner’s extensive book collection, while the oculus in the first floor ceiling provides dramatic views to the second level and domed ceiling above. The kitchen and hearth room feature a charming arched brick ceiling, providing a rustic counterpoint to the finely crafted kitchen cabinets and beautiful granite countertops.
