For anyone who knows barbecue-famous Kansas City, the historic mansions that line Ward Parkway are iconic. And, as you get closer to the Plaza, they grow in size and grandeur. Located prestigiously right on the corner of West 57th Street, an English Tudor has hit the market asking $3,499,995. Standing there since 1932, as Kansas City weathered the Great Depression yet continued to rise as a Midwest cultural hub, the home has been beautifully maintained.

Through the enchanting wood-carved front door, you’ll find rooms that balance intricate architectural details and contemporary finishes. The formal dining room is a perfect example of how these elements exist harmoniously, displaying a fashionable modern chandelier alongside delicate ceiling moldings. Amenities like the wood-paneled elevator delightfully nod to the home’s origins while the 900-bottle wine cellar, elegant white kitchen, and abundance of windows feel forever fresh.

Nothing leaves you wanting outside either. The grounds have been completely redesigned by the sellers. New owners can spend football season entertaining on the blue stone patio, which overlooks the new pool with a waterfall, or relaxing in the spa after a long day cheering on the Chiefs.

It’s no secret that the Eagles’ stomping grounds are a treasure trove for history buffs as well. Known as the birthplace of the United States of America, Philadelphia holds key pieces of early U.S. history such as the Liberty Bell. However, the city is also known for its expansive green space.

Currently, there’s a townhouse on the market just steps away from sprawling Fairmont Park, which is home to beloved art institutions like the Philadelphia Museum of Art and Rodin Museum. Beyond its enticing Spring Garden district perch, the brownstone mansion is defined by its Romanesque details. Presenting a traditional and stoic facade, it was built in 1885 by clothing magnate Samuel Fleisher and is still just as impressive 138 years later.

Much like the KC home, this residence has aged like a fine wine and brims with period details to discover whether you’re scaling the stunning staircase or taking the pilot house elevator. Stained and leaded glass elements, rich millwork, coffered ceilings, oak floors with patterned inlays, and imposing fireplaces all make a statement and contribute to its character. But, the home has been reconfigured in subtle ways to suit 21st-century living. To name a couple, the original ballroom has been converted into an executive-sized home office and the kitchen is decked out with top-of-the-line appliances.

While parks are right within reach, the manse also has its own garden terrace and rooftop deck with city skyline views to cherish. If you’re loving the thought of embracing Philly living here, fly like an eagle to make an offer to listing agents Melanie Stecura and Linda Knox of Sotheby’s International Realty.
