Equestrian Home in Kansas City

Equestrians at heart, and home.

This extraordinary equestrian estate and custom home build in Miami County Kansas, enhances the daily routine and comfort of its owners who live and breathe the equestrian lifestyle. It features a spacious kitchen and open living area with high-end amenities. The goal was to create a space where beauty and function as well as hard work and celebration could all intertwine. 

This project combines luxurious country living with a harmonious blend of functionality, aesthetics and comfort for both the residents and their horses.

Project challenges:

The homeowners’ site already housed a barn with contemporary living quarters. The owners’ main residence needed to be located with good access to the barn as well as unobstructed views to the main pond and pastures.

Project solutions:

For this specialty project, MMH knew that partnering with the right architectural firm was imperative for the success of this custom home. Once that decision was made, together we asked copious questions designed to extract every hope and idea from the clients before construction began.

The Outcome.

The estate is located on a picturesque 1,000-acre+ parcel of land, offering expansive views, privacy and ample space for various equestrian activities. The space beckons both indoor and outdoor living at its finest.

The floorplan.

The home depicts a sophisticated and well-designed floor plan with four distinct wings serving different functions and a central area which serves as the main living space. The inclusion of clerestory windows in the great room truly emphasizes natural light and open, airy spaces.

 

Central Area

This open-concept living room, kitchen and grand hall invites residents and guests to relax and socialize. It includes high-end finishes and home media and technology concepts that focus on creating a seamless, immersive, entertainment and living environment. Comfortable sofas and chairs in durable fabrics offer respite at the end of long days spent grooming, training and riding horses or hunting and managing the family’s many acres of agricultural properties.

 

First Wing

Primary Suite: Features a spacious bedroom layout with his/her bathrooms and private laundry facilities. The space is designed for comfort, privacy and luxury serving as a private retreat for the homeowners.

 

Second Wing

Kitchen/Library/Family Room: Blends luxury with functionality while also incorporating elements that reflect the equestrian lifestyle. The kitchen incorporates architectural elements that include decorative moldings, Italian plaster range hood, elevated cabinetry and appliances. The library/family room were designed as an extension of the kitchen, and provide space for relaxed, informal family gatherings, reading and relaxation.

 

Third Wing

Garage/Utility/Powder Room: While most homes provide these spaces as seldom-seen afterthoughts, this home celebrates the durability required for everyday equestrian living. While still beautiful, the focus was more on function and sustainability…and a perfect space to kennel their dogs.

 

Fourth Wing

Secondary bedroom/bath/office: These private areas of the home provide versatility that accommodate both relaxation and productivity. The bedroom and office incorporate beautiful white oak flooring and entry doors while the bathroom features a mosaic travertine floor, oak cabinets and brushed gold fittings. Together they provide the perfect combination of function and beauty.
