One of Winfield's most distinctive homes, designed and built by Bill Caton, Winfield's architect of note. This Cotswold English style home is not only historic but also comfortably elegant! 4 bedrooms, 3.5 baths. The curving driveway comes to the front entrance, reminding one of the settings of the English country homes that inspired Caton. Walk into the spacious entry hall with its stone floor and cypress beams. Step down into the living room with its cathedral, beamed ceiling, and marble-faced fireplace. French doors open to a flagstone patio with a stone privacy wall and arched wooden gate. Returning to the entry hall, you can view the back yard from the floor to ceiling windows of the dining room & its french door to a partly covered patio. .A cozy corner fireplace and cabinetry add to the beauty of this room. The picture-book kitchen, remodeled in earlier years, reflects the integrity of the old English style with Wood Mode cabinetry and all its features, refrigerator with panels to match the cabinets, double ovens, and more! A window box window over the kitchen sink provides a great view to the landscaped backyard and its charming stone storage building. From the entry hall a short connection hall passes by the laundry closet and opens to the master bedroom suite with its oak plank floors and truly luxurious master bath/dressing room. Step back again to the entry hall, note the Gothic arched doorway to the powder bath, and then, looking toward the impressive curving stone-step staircase with its wrought iron railing, tall open beamed ceiling, and its 2 story stained leaded glass window, focal point of the exterior and interior as well! 3 bedrooms (2 with fireplaces, one is a non operating one) and 2 baths on the 2nd floor and balcony view of the staircase! In addition to the many architectural details...the stair tower, the stone staircase, marble windowsills, the cypress beams, etc...the abundance of built-in storage, walk-in closets, main floor gas log fireplaces are only a few of the features that add convenience. From the inside to the outside this gorgeous home is one of Winfield's most admired!

    What a beautiful home! Winfield is a lovely small town in Southern Kansas…not too far away from Wichita. Someone will be so lucky to be able to love this home.

    Very nice, looks like a lot of homes in my area (California) Love all the interior details.

    So cute, in a grand sort of way! Which I realize sounds like an oxymoron, but this house manages to blend the two, in my eye.

    A charming and nicely preserved example of the European-inspired styles popular in the US during time between the World Wars. This one is said to have been designed for the architect’s parents and expanded in 1984 by a protege of the original architect . To me, the style appears to be a romantic blend of Tudor Revival and French Norman, creating a real storybook feel.

    Wow, what a wonderful surprise. This is not a style I would have expected to like but how can I not??? Such interesting detailing and a beautiful lot. When in college and somewhat of a hippie, I used to go to the Blue Grass Festival in Winfield every summer. Wonder if they still have that???? I would purchase this home in a heartbeat if I had family close by.

    Not only is this house exceptional and a true architectural masterpiece, but the current owners have filled with beautiful antique furniture and art that are period and style appropriate. I really like everything about this house.

    Very nice job in blending the kitchen with the rest of the house, glad to see that. The whole house is gorgeous!!!!

    For maybe the first time, i have the feel that this French eclectic American house has a French feel. The exterior would be uncommon and the beamed gables look more British to me. But the inside, for once, has the French feel, I did not feel i was looking at an American house. In Normandy they wouldn’t have the stone walls i think, their walls were made of mud/brick/anything to fill in between the beams in the walls. But in some other regions, such as Loire Valley where limestone is common for interior and exterior walls, this makes sense. My 1855-75 limestone house has rustic exposed beams and stone walls (some big rectangular blocks on 2 end walls, and smaller rubble stones and mortar on the other walls).

    1910 Tudor/craftsman mix

    A fabulous house that has for the most part been kept original. Thank goodness the wood is still stained, that just adds so much to its look. This one is beautiful inside and out, a real treasure for some lucky buyer.So many wonderful surprises inside, it fulfills the exterior’s promise.

    Golly what a great house. Those early 20th century architects who created these Tudor recreations created homes that actually improve on the original, I think. Sure, they’re not hundreds of years old, but they are so very livable. Original or 20th century recreations, I love how there’s no symmetry.

    If only I could pick up everything I have and go to Kansas LOL This one is just beautiful

    As I looked at the photos I immediately thought of an apartment complex here in Fresno with the same feel. It’s named the Normandy and that’s what I kept thinking as I looked through the wonderful photos. I agree, the folly is just beyond wonderful.

    ditto what everyone said! very nice! do you think that stair railing is original? that is the ONLY thing I don’t care for. The rest I can live with 😉

    I love this house! It is exactly the kind of house I have always wanted. It looks so well cared for too. A real family home.

    It seems like I need to move to Kansas now. Absolutely love the house, but that garden folly clinched it for me.

    Tudor inside and out. A true little castle, in my eyes.

    1979 That 70's show
    Otis Orchards, WA

    Quite a nice place with good use of materials on the exterior. I love the main vaulted space with the beam ceiling! Even the phone alcove is intact!

    Gorgeous home in my favorite style. Very little I would do other than warm up the white paint a bit. Beautiful staircase; rooms are spacious and wood detail just perfect. The curb appeal is outstanding too. I’ll take it 😉 Now all I have to do is convince my hubby that Kansas isn’t the flattest place on earth, lol.
