Welcome home to 1040 W. Riverside Avenue. The architect certainly used careful planning and impeccable attention to detail, far advanced for the time, to construct this beautiful estate nestled in the heart of Riverside. This lavish home is an Entertainer's dream but is also perfect for family living with 4 spacious bedrooms, 4 full bathrooms, a half bathroom, a gourmet kitchen, 15,000-gallon Koi pond (that can be converted into an inground pool), two car garage, private courtyard, and is canopied by one of the most magnificent White Oak trees in the region. The exterior is constructed with impressive old-world craftsmanship of European building tiles with solid concrete stucco and a slate tile roof. The front courtyard is a private and peaceful oasis with the trickling sound of the water fall, the serene landscaping, and the Koi bubbling up to be fed. When you enter the massive, solid wood and original glass front door, you will be greeted in the elegant foyer, warmed by original hardwood floors and quarter sawn oak trim and molding. You do not see wood detail like this today! The formal living room and dining room are located on either side of the foyer and are accented by graceful archways, crown molding, chair rail molding, modernized lighting, an impressive fireplace, and large window bays allowing natural light to beam across the living space. The gourmet kitchen is exceptionally appointed with granite countertops, KitchenAid refrigerator, multi-burner gas range with side by side double ovens, built in buffet, and a great amount of storage space. Thanksgiving dinner will be a joy to prepare with the whole family. Also, on the main level is a sun room, separate office, and half bath. On the second floor, you will find the master bedroom with a completely renovated ensuite bathroom with an BainUltra Bubble Air tub with travertine surround, travertine walk-in shower, heated floor, private commode, double vanity, and separate closets. Two additional bedroom, a full bathroom, and a door to the balcony with a river view completes the second level. The third level, which was used as a ballroom decades ago, has been preserved with original character in mind. The maple hardwood floors have been saved and a full bathroom was added to this level to complete the space. The basement is something to see with the impressive mechanical systems, two non-conforming rooms, a full bathroom, the original "fruit cellar", the "coal room", and tremendous storage space. Some of the many other special features, upgrades, and details are this home include a boiler system which is serviced on a routine basis by Moody heating and air and has a high efficiency burner, two zones of HVAC, a new sewer line, true slate tile roof, original hardwood floors throughout all 3 levels, all asbestos has been professionally removed and new insulation installed on steam pipes, significant electrical updates, new heavy-duty guttering and downspouts with LeafLock covers and a lifetime warranty, Hunter Douglas shades, deck added on with 100% PVC (more durable than TREX), new liner in Koi pond, Lustercraft custom window well covers, installation added to third floor, upgraded gas meter, sprinkler system, professional concrete stucco sealant, new exterior paint, and exterior walls thicker than the spread of a hand. You can see that this home has been more than maintained. It has been loved. Don't miss your opportunity to own part of the history of Wichita. EXTERIOR AND INTERIOR VIDEO TOURS ARE AVAILABLE.
