The solid limestone estate home has been a sentinel on the Flint Hills prairie since 1873, when railroad land first became available for purchase and when herds of buffalo could still be found roaming the tall-grass prairies of the eastern Kansas Flint Hills. Dura Warren, a wealthy stockbroker and horse trader from New York, purchased two sections of Flint Hills land and moved his family west. The Warren’s built this grand Italianate limestone home (locals called it a mansion) with light-flooding floor to ceiling windows, a walnut center-hall stairway, high ceilings and large rooms; a reflection of their wealth and prosperity.
Generations of Warrens, prosperous settlers from Brooklyn and Massachusetts, lived and celebrated the West in this grand Flint Hills limestone country estate.
Persian rugs, original oil paintings, Tiffany style lamps and fine antiques still fill the home today. Recent and extensive restoration of this grand estate honors the historic architectural features of the home while meeting modern living conveniences.
There is plenty of room to make this native stone country estate your own. With a large 3rd floor attic space and a full; unfinished basement space, these bonus areas offer significant and ample space to expand.
MODERN & EFFICIENT: Without disturbing the historic authenticity, the house is very modern when it comes to energy efficiency. Hybrid heat pumps, low cell foam insulation, and whole-home security system are a few of the modern upgrades adding comfort, security, and economy to this 140 year-old country estate. All 33 of the original over-sized windows have been re-glazed to allow for natural heating and cooling. Thick limestone walls and programmable thermostats help keep a moderate and consistent temperature throughout the year.
