Exquisite, elegant, breathtaking and luxurious do not accurately describe this 19th century Queen Anne masterpiece. The retiring owner-occupants have operated the 'Inn at 425' as a 3 bedroom, 2 apartment-suite B&B and now offer new ownership, as an ongoing bed and breakfast inn or as an exceptional residence for the discriminating historic home enthusiast. The stunning, painstaking historic restoration over the past few years exhibits meticulous attention to historical detail, energy efficiency and guest convenience. This offering is structured as a turnkey sale with most of the furnishings conveying with the property, an opportunity to step into an on-going successful B&B rated year-after-year as #1 in Kansas City by Tripadvisor.
Inviting wraparound porches greet you as first step up to this awe-inspiring majestic queen. Hardwood floors glow throughout the home. Restored intricate ceiling stencils, stained glass Tiffany replicas, cherry trim, molding and pocket doors warm the first floor foyer, den, dining and living rooms. Three refurbished functioning vent-free gas fireplaces add to the warmth as do two additional freestanding gas fireplaces on the first and third floors. The gourmet kitchen, equipped with pro-level appliances, (Subzero, Fivestar, Thermador, Jennair) double ovens, double sinks, dish washers and disposals, offers access (as does the Garden Room) to an outdoor wonderland with two inviting outdoor porch spaces, one with sink and grill, dining decks, a bricked patio, koi pond and pergola gardens.
3 en suite bedrooms with walk-in closets and cozy exterior sitting spaces, all immaculately kept and furnished, occupy the second floor as does a convenient laundry, linen closet and storage. The 3rd floor is reserved as the owner's quarters. Organized as a master en suite bedroom with a sitting alcove, huge walk-in closet, bath with Jacuzzi tub and walk-in shower, small private office and storage space, this space could be an additional rental unit should new ownership have off-site residency.

Currently, the carriage house is rented month-to-month and consistes of two 1300 square foot units-- separate one bedroom and two bedroom apartments, both updated within the last 3 1/2 years.
