Single Family Residence
Classicamente Bello bestows distinguished, Old-World Tuscan charm throughout every inch of its 5,800 square feet. Gene Fritzel Construction created this 4-bedroom, 3-full and 2-half-bath estate in 2006, one of only 14 in the exclusive gated Tomahawk Creek Estates in Leawood, Kan. The distinctive reverse story-and-a-half is tucked below street level and backs to Tomahawk Creek, offering ample green space and privacy. The quality of construction is unparalleled: all walls are Venetian plaster or hand-hewn stone, and antique décor (including railings, lighting, historic fountains, fixtures, and flooring) was collected globally, ensuring the home’s seamless and authentic design. Oversized Great Room boasts antique flooring, stonework wall, and concrete mantel. Handsome kitchen—with hand-painted cabinetry and granite island that seats 4—and dining room lead onto year-around sunroom. A terrace spans the back of the home and is ideal for entertaining. A stately study boasts exquisitely detailed wooden mantel, while an adjoining bath is lavishly outfitted with antique stained-glass window and unique urn sink. The impressive master features beautifully tiled bathroom with carved French bibliotheque from the 1800s. Impressive 2-story clock tower is accented by 8-foot wide French clock. Hand-painted stairs lead to the lower level, which features workout facilities, wine cellar, large entertainment area with wet bar, 3 additional bedrooms, and sweeping French doors onto the lower patio. The manor also features 2 laundry rooms, office, cedar closet, 3 heated garages, and 2 control rooms. The backyard was designed for the potential addition of a pool. It’s easy to lose oneself in the richness of the Classicamente Bello estate, making you swear…you’re not in Kansas anymore.
