$865,000

Description

Located on the most desirable street in Fairway, a few miles west of the renowned Kansas City Country Club Plaza, this 4 bedroom, 4 bath, Cape Cod Classic, built in 1940, overlooks the 18th green and clubhouse of the prestigious Mission Hills Country Club. (Est.1914). The home has been completely renovated from top to bottom with a Class 4 Impact/ Class A Fire Rated DaVinci Polymer Shake Roof (2014), to a 5 ton Goodman AC/Furnace (2020). Amidst the barn wood and architectural salvage throughout the residence are: A recording studio that can become a 5th bedroom, mother-in-law quarters or office in home; Commercial grade Viking, Kitchen Aid and Asko appliances, Copper Farm Sinks, Concrete Countertops, Barn wood cabinetry; Three fireplaces; New Kohler toilets (June 2020)
The charming and lusciously landscaped property, with a fresh 3” topping to the asphalt driveway, is highlighted by a very private 16′ x 32′ backyard brick patio, with wood burning fireplace, and serpentining river rock paths leading to the ever enchanting Duck Inn a tiny house.

I am the owner and renovator of this one of a kind home. Since 2010 this renovation has not only provided me a place to live, but a canvas to balance out my occupation as a non-stop touring/singer/songwriter/recording artist. (paulclarkmusic.com). I love redemption and reclamation. As a child, my mom, a well known Kansas City interior decorator, took me on picking adventures around the midwest. She had a keen eye for salvage materials and antiques that she peddled to her high end clients out of her quaint Westwood Shop, currently the Hi-Hat Coffeeshop, only a few streets from here. To the back story….. After I gutted many of the walls to the studs and furred them out to 2″x 6”, I installed new electric, plumbing, double and triple paned casement windows, French doors, insulation and 5/8″ Quiet Rock sheetrock. This is not my first artistic residential adventure so it was business as usual for me to source an 1892 Northwest Missouri barn for it’s beams and planks, Douglas Fir bleachers from the 1933 Leavenworth Kansas High School, piles of street pavers, river rock, stone, rusted roof tin, salvage iron and porch columns to be thespians in my theater. The street view offers a serene feel that only a true seaside sloping roof Cape Cod provides. The original French doors that frame the front door are mirroring trophies fashioned by KC architect and builders, Norton Payne and Russell Field, who created the home for Dr. & Mrs. James Q. Chambers, Jr. in 1940. I have the amazing original blueprints to every detail from room size overviews to trim and newel posts.

Showings start Sunday October 11th;
All buyers who want to make an appointment prior to viewing the house must send me an email me at [email protected] with a certified pre-approval letter or proof of funds.

If you’re an agent, and have a client that would be interested in my home, I will entertain offers and am willing to discuss your percentage. I have my legal estate attorney to assist in closing the transaction.

(Note: I have a long printed story to a room by room tour as well as over 3,000 photographs of every thing I’ve done to the house. A little bit of side history is that there have been over a dozen professional records produced in my studio, famous musicians and Hall of Fame PGA Golfers have stayed here, and this Holiday season you can tune into the Hallmark Channel and watch “Chocolate Covered Christmas” and view portions that were filmed here. It’s a colorful home in Spring, Summer and Fall when everything is green and in bloom, but it’s also ridiculously cozy and looks like a Norman Rockwell painting in the winter season).
