Property Description

This is a rare opportunity to own a beautifully detailed and recently updated, historic home that provides great space to build family memories and entertain. This elegant home was completed in 1904 and was designed for the George Kanavel family of Sedgwick by Charles H. Chandler, who later became the longtime State Architect of Kansas. With just a handful of owners in the last 115 years, the home has been maintained and updated to now include high-end amenities in the recently remodeled bathrooms, laundry, and kitchen. With over 3300 square feet, four bedrooms, and two full baths, the open floor plan home is an entertainer’s dream. It features a massive wraparound front porch with a porch gazebo in the front and a covered outdoor living space in the backyard, complete with a beautiful fireplace, that was finished in fall 2019. The home is flooded with light from massive windows, including curved glass windows in the foyer and leaded, stained glass in the living room and wide front stairway. Other architectural details include high ceilings, hardwood floors, pocket doors, wide window trim, limestone foundation, and a butler’s staircase, all of which is detailed in the home’s original blueprints, which are framed in the foyer. The large master bedroom features tons of light, a sitting/office area, and walk-in closet. In addition to the outdoor living space, recent remodels and renovations have included finishing a family media room that opens to the outdoor living space, upstairs and downstairs bathrooms, laundry, kitchen, and a new roof. The quiet corner lot on which the home sits is irrigated with a well-water sprinkler system and the home is surrounded by flower and vegetable gardens, and even boasts a chicken coop. An attached two-car garage features tons of storage and room for a home workshop. This spectacular house is located a block from the city park, which features a new community pool, and four blocks from the Sedgwick schools. The owners are longtime Sedgwick residents who happily raised their family in this home and have been actively engaged in the community. They hope to pass this home to a family that will appreciate its loveliness and wants to call this great community home. Sedgwick is just a twenty minute drive from downtown Wichita and fifteen minutes from downtown Newton. MLS Number: 585061
