1238 Bright Mountain Road,
Located in the small gated community of Leawood, this lovely home sits high atop Bright Mountain with excellent southerly views of several mountain ranges and Trillium Links and Lake Club. A private gated entrance with stone columns and coach lights leads to the main house. Inside, the welcoming great room makes the most of the surrounding natural beauty with a beamed cathedral ceiling and lots of windows, while the open kitchen and dining area keep the chef in the conversation. A soaring two-sided stone fireplace also warms the adjacent covered living porch. Two guest bedrooms with deck access round out the main floor. Upstairs, the spacious master suite has its own fireplace with sitting area. The current owners have turned the property into a lush outdoor paradise, full of color, mature hardwoods and professional landscaping accents. Paths meander through the rustling trees to wondrous flower and vegetable gardens, offering inviting spots along the way to sit and relax or have an impromptu picnic. Nestled under a huge rock outcrop in the near yard, a fire pit with Adirondack chairs and a sitting swing is the perfect place to roast marshmallows or sip a cocktail with friends. The property also features two cozy cottages; one is currently used a potting room and the other as an office, but possibilities abound.
