About Andrea Andrews, Proprietor

This recently renovated, charming Country Estate was purchased by my grandparents in 1949 to expand their farmland. As a lifelong Topekan, I like to share this special place with others. This home has been modernized and updated over the past several years, and is waiting to be enjoyed by families and groups looking to escape from the chaos of daily life, and relax in a comfortable, yet spacious setting.

Why Andrea Andrews, Proprietor chose Kansas

Just take a few minutes to sit and watch the sunset over the Flint Hills, or listen to the sounds of the songbirds in the day, or the crickets, coyotes, and other country critters in the evening, and you will discover the beauty that exists hidden in this part of Kansas.

What makes this farmhouse unique

Wildlife, wildflowers, and pure country living as viewed in all directions, draw visitors to this lovely and unique home. From its impressive architecture, to its elegant, but home-like comforts inside and out, everyone is sure to be impressed. Located just one mile from Interstate 70, for those individuals that still want to stay connected, local businesses and 24 hour shopping is available less than 5 minutes from this Country Estate.

Family Reunion at Keene Road Country Estate

  • 5 of 5

We were looking for a large home to use for our family reunion this year in Topeka, KS. Thank goodness we found this one! We loved the old farmhouse charm and it was plenty big to house our large family for several days, plus having extra family members come to celebrate together. The property owners were very accommodating and easy to work with. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay!

Week at Keene Country Estate

  • 5 of 5

My family and I stayed for a week at the Keene Road Country Estate, and could not have had a more relaxing time. The moment we walked in, we were made to feel as if we were staying with family. The property is very homey and the house and furnishings very comfortable. The proprietor, Andrea is one of the nicest people that we have met and went out of her way to ensure we had everything we needed to make our stay as enjoyable as it could be. I will be recommending this property to family and friends. I am already looking forward to our next visit!

Warm and inviting..

  • 5 of 5

We were welcomed to the property by Shelley, very friendly and inviting. She took us on a tour of the Annex where we stayed and let us know if we needed anything to just ask.

The Annex was very clean and perfect for my family's stay. We had everything we needed and they supplied us with a full case of water! Considering how hot it was it was very appreciated.

My kids were excited to see all the wild life...a family of racoon's, possums and deer. It is a beautiful setting.

We are making plans for next year's stay too...
