On April 15, 2008 we closed on a 1955 Mid-Century Modern home in Merriam, KS that was custom designed by the late Donald R. Hollis of Hollis + Miller Architects. We will be sharing our journey as we update the house to make it our own, while trying to stay as close to the original design as possible.

House For Sale

No we are not selling Robinhood's Hideaway!  We are actually selling the house we first moved into when we came to Kansas City.   We had it leased for the last three years, but when our tenants moved out we decided to put it on the market.

If you or anybody you know is looking for a cute two bedroom raised ranch in Merriam, please check out our listing.

Here is just a partial list of the improvements we have made since we purchased the house:
  • Privacy fence
  • Trex deck (low maintenance)
  • New interior paint
  • Replaced all windows to Energy Star windows
  • Installed new Energy Star front door
  • Installed 8' Andersen sliding door that opens up to the deck
  • New tiled floor in bathroom
  • New carpet
  • New garage door
  • New kitchen backsplash
  • New liner in fireplace
  • Upgraded electrical wiring
The kitchen is tiny, but there is opportunity for expansion. It is in a great central location, get to The Plaza, Downtown, The Legends, I-35 or I-635 in just a matter of minutes.

We were told it was the ranch house for Zarda Dairy.  Why buy a cookie cutter house when you can buy one with lots of character and history?
