This home, on a magnificent hilltop site near Higginsville, Missouri, reflects the tradition of the antebellum homes in the nearby community and farms, as well as the owner’s family tradition dating back to the time of the Civil War. Cherry woodwork and paneling characterize its more informal areas, while ornate plaster mouldings and marble fireplaces adorn its foyer, parlor, dining room, staircases, and master suite. The sculpted and shaped landscape design guides you along great vistas from the home to the estate’s lakes and meadows. Rolling berms and terraces in the front yard are filled with seasonal trees that frame the driveway and visual approach to the home. Layered foundation plantings instill a historic formality befitting a Missouri setting.
