This is a mid America farm experience that is rural in its setting. It borders the farm community of Louisburg which has a population of 4,500.
Its proximity to Kansas City gives it the best of both worlds. Highway 69 is a double divided freeway that make for easy access to the City.
Some of the high lights of the area are: Tiger Cove, a tiger preserve, the Powell Observatory, Summer Set Winery, the Mine Creek Battlefield, an historic monument to the Civil War, Overland Park Arboretum, Miss Bee's Restaurant, Lucile's Diner, a Farmer's Market and many wonderful antique stores.
The farmhouse has a large gathering room with 12 foot vaulted ceilings. The kitchen opens to the gathering room and dining area. The high ceilings provide a gallery for art work. There is a master bedroom downstairs with a sitting room. The bathroom downstairs is 9x16 and has two pedestal sinks, a tub and shower. There is a mirrored vanity dresser at the end of the room. The door to the bathroom is a 7 ft. oil painting that is hinged like a sliding barn door. There are two bedrooms up stairs.
There is a fishing pond on the west side of the farmhouse. There are two barns, one a red dairy barn and the other a 6,000 Sq. Foot hay and livestock barn. A silo is in the middle between the two barns.
This was my grandfathers farm. I grew up in Louisburg. It was only 1,000 people at that time, now it is over 4,500. I loved growing up in a small town in the 50's, it was a real "Leave it to Beaver" experience. My Graduating class in 1962 was only 44 students, today it is 4 times that number.
I love the am happy to share that nostalgic feeling with fellow travelers.
Sharon Morrisey purchased this farmhouse in 1947
This property will will be handed down to my children, it is a 'Safe Haven". My grandfather built the big hay barn in 1950. We are in the process of making the loft (2200 into living space. It has a 20 ft. Ceiling and feels very authentic and romantic to me. There is also a red dairy barn. In the 50's he operated it as a grade A Dairy. During that time it was rented to a family with 10 children, who also ran the dairy. It's hard to think that 12 people could have lived in the farmhouse, but that was a different time and place.
My Grandfather lived there until he died in 1998. We moved there in 2005. It to me is the click of the ruby slippers that says, "There is no place like home".
The wrap around porch was built in 1998 for my daughter's wedding which took place there. I added the sitting room in 2012, which I love. The 9x16 Ft. Bathroom was my Grandfather's bedroom with a small bath inside. Now it is one of my favorite rooms with 2 pedestal sinks and an antique vanity dresser at the end.
In 2005 we remodeled the inside by combining 5 small rooms into an open family room/kitchen and dining room. The 14 Ft. Ceiling was already there, we just exposed it. We added a bay of tall Windows over the sink that looks out to a beautiful field. We also added Windows al along the west side of the room. It is a large yet cozy room .
The farmhouse is is now even closer to Louisburg as the city limits was moved to the west boundary of the property. It still feels rural.
It is also only 25 minutes to Kansas City, where everything is in deed up to date as the song refrains. The closest to Kansas City makes it an ideal location to enjoy the best of both worlds.
