Elegant European Design Makes Itself at Home in the Heart of Kansas
Would you believe this home is located in Kansas? Traditional European elegance and fine finishes transport visitors to another place, like an Italian villa perhaps. Surprisingly, you won't have to hop on an airplane to visit this stunning home. It's located n Fall Creek Farms, in Lawrence Kansas. The approximately 9,000 square feet house was expertly crafted by Gene Fritzel Construction with great attention to materials and design.
Sophisticated design is brought to life with high end finishes of travertine, terra cotta, tumbled marble, and reclaimed wide-plank oak floors. Hand troweled plaster, hand stenciled walls, antique beams and architectural accents give the home it's hand crafted character. Comfortable seating in the spacious living areas is equally suited to casual everyday living and elegant entertaining.
The heart of the home boasts natural materials rich in style and substance. Wood beams, terracotta floor tile and finishes in nature inspired colors lend a rustic flair to this functional and attractive space. Floor to ceiling windows flood the space with light while distinctive lights above the kitchen island and dining table provides additional light. Take in a view of verdant garden while enjoying your morning coffee.
Filled with muted hues and soft finishes, the master bedroom provides a serene retreat from the hustle and bustle of everyday life. Comfy chairs are just waiting for you to curl up by the fireplace with a good book before retiring for the night. In the morning, you can rise with the sun shine filtering through the wall of windows. Not a morning person? No problem. Heavy drapes block out light so you can keep dreaming into the day.
It's only natural that the landscape suites the quality and style of the home. The same attention to design and natural materials seen inside the house is seen outside as well. A gorgeous pool and elaborate gardens are just part of this lush and inviting outdoor oasis. Smooth stacked stone borders refreshing blue pool crowned with a decorative fountain.
