Is it time to get a new start --- where housing and the cost of living are affordable, the air is fresh, and the quality of life is relaxed and peaceful --- where your kids can ride their bicycles to school or the park and zoo? Do you want to live in a friendly community where you know and trust your neighbors and can feel safe?

I am an individual Kansas homeowner with a lovely two-story home to sell. If you have questions regarding my property you can contact me for that purpose ONLY. This home is NOT available for lease or lease/purchase.

If you are looking to change jobs/careers, if you work anywhere in northeast Oklahoma or southeast Kansas, can work remotely or from home, own/operate (or want to start) your own business, or if you are retired and can live anywhere --- I hope you'll check out this exceptionally nice home and the wonderful community where it's located.

Here's a brief property description, a few photos and some information on my community:

Sunny, private main level retreat provides spacious fourth bedroom possibility in this lovely Colonial-style home with so many extras! 3,138 square feet finished living space and full unfinished basement. Perfect floor plan for entertaining! Gazebo sunroom/breakfast room opens to large custom-designed kitchen with walnut cabinetry, china hutch, pantry, and island dining space that adjoins large family room with custom walnut fireplace mantle, beams and bookcases. Large formal dining and living rooms, large sunroom/guest retreat (or fourth bedroom?), butler's kitchen, two fireplaces, oversized 2-car detached garage with corner workshop/attic storage. Extra-large master suite has private spa-style bathroom, large custom walk-in closet with shelves, built-in cabinetry and activity center. Sunny second floor laundry adjoins home office with large built-in desk and file drawers. Great storage and plenty of space for craft or workshop in basement. Expansive deck overlooks picturesque lily pond on 1.8 acre lot with spring-fed well and tons of room for garden, orchard, workshop and play space.

Independence, KS is the "single engine aircraft capital of the world" and home to Cessna Aircraft Company's single engine aircraft manufacturing plant --- where parent company Textron Aviation manufactures the single-piston engine Skyhawk, Skylane and Stationair, the Citation Mustang and M2 business jets. (Cessna could have built its facility anywhere in the world and they spent major $ on the site selection process. They chose Independence. That speaks volumes about our community!)

With a population of just under 10,000, Independence offers new ER medical facilities, new and recently renovated schools, a two-year community college, several four-year colleges within driving distance, numerous cultural offerings locally and in the nearby region, top-notch tennis* and golf programs and facilities, plus wide-ranging boating, fishing, hiking and hunting opportunities. (The US Tennis Association selected Independence one of the nation's top three best tennis towns!) The metropolitan areas of Kansas City, Wichita, Tulsa, OK, and Joplin, MO are only an hour or two of open/uncongested/scenic driving!

Again, if you have questions regarding my property you can contact me for that purpose ONLY.
