    That kitchen, what was shown, stopped me cold. I love it! The color and design of those cupboards are to die for! The backsplash is just beautiful. Loved all the stained glass, too.

    I love the porches on this house. I think it is it’s one defining character. I fell in love with the carriage house as well. I would love to see more pictures. What a treasure!

    This is a lovely home. Porches always get me. I can’t say that I have ever seen a radiator like the one under/around the window.
    Would love to see the inside of the carriage house.

    Beautiful stained glass windows! And looks like a cool carriage house – which alone, is plenty large!

    This house is amazing.

    I am also freaking out that there appears to be three original gas chandeliers inside (converted to electricity).

    Kansas is one of the few states offering grants to help maintain/restore historic homes. As this home is on the National Register, it would qualify.

    Ottawa is a nice town about an hour from Kansas City.

    Lots and lots to love here. The exterior paint is typical of how this style of house would have been painted originally. I wonder what’s under the carpet that remains?

    Beautiful house that looks just like it did when built, with old photos to prove it. The interior is pretty great also, and the carriage house completes the trifecta! A unique one-off design from a talented architect known more for his libraries and courthouses.

    Some of the most beautiful residential stained glass I believe I’ve seen. Amazing house!

    Notice the old wall paper that the owner did not want to tear out…so its left in tattered edging…she’s an Amazing old gal & ditto for the Carriage House – I totally LOVE those! This one is truly spectacular. Wish we could see the inside!

    This house is beautiful. Even the kitchen looks like it belongs to the house. The stained glass windows are some of the prettiest I’ve seen. It would be nice to match the wallpaper to the colors in the stained glass windows.
