Luxury Living in 2023!
Luxury Homes in the Kansas City Area
+$1 Million Dollar Properties In and Around Kansas City!
The Merriam-Webster dictionary defines the word luxury as “the state of great comfort and extravagant living”. The important differentiation in that definition is the word “and”. It isn’t great comfort OR extravagant living, it is the presence of both things. That brings up the question of can a more modest home be considered a luxury estate, if it is perfectly placed among a perfect oasis of acres of land, or is it the expansive square footage and opulent features of a home that makes it luxury?
Here in the Kansas City area, we are fortunate to have many choices of luxury listings to consider when it comes to our standards of luxury living. Below are a variety of price points of accommodations, from newer builds to not-so-new (hello Sauer Castle). Does one of these homes speak to you as the ideal prototype of comfort and extravagant living?
