A Mission Hills French Chateau

Y'all know I love to peruse real estate listings as a way to decompress.  I'm usually checking out Dallas real estate for decorating ideas, but I thought today I'd give a little love to Kansas City, which is truly more beautiful than most people might realize.

This gorgeous Mission Hills French Provincial caught my eye.  Sadly, it's slightly out of my price range, but a girl can dream.

Such a soothing neutral palette, that I would never be able to pull off because I'd have to mess it up with some color.  I love it though and appreciate it's elegance.  And the landscaping alone is worth half of the purchase price.  They have me at pink flowers.

For those of y'all who've never had the pleasure of visiting Kansas City,  Mission Hills is one of the more gorgeous places to drive around and house stalk.  The homes and properties are really remarkable and I often find myself taking a few detours and long, scenic routes when I'm driving through the neighborhood.

  4. I grew up in Kansas City during and after World War II. My Prairie Grade School bus picked up students in Mission Hills so I had the pleasure of seeing those expensive homes 5 days a week and I loved every minute of it. Thanks for reminding me of the pastoral beauty of that setting. I left Kansas City in 1956 and I still miss it. Ann

  5. It was very useful for me. Keep sharing such ideas in the future as well. This was actually what I was looking for, and I am glad to came here! Thanks for sharing the such information with us.
