Gorgeous Custom Country Estate


Come fall in love with this custom country palace on a beautifully manicured 5 acres just south of Boonville, MO.

The fruit trees in front of the house include apple, peach, pear and persimmon trees. Walking around the side yard, you find a frost-free deep well pump. The back of the house features an octagonal covered porch with a ceiling fan and outdoor surround speakers, an ideal space for a hot tub or outdoor dining. The covered porch continues along the back of the home, and is a wonderful space to enjoy the view of the very private sprawling landscape and the koi pond.

You’ll love the lower level garage accessed from the rear of the home. The paved drive in front of the lower level garage is flanked on either side by tall brick walls, and has been designed as a spacious kennel. Continuing around the home to the south side, you find an over-sized two-car garage at the end of a circle drive. The circle drive is heavily landscaped and features a decorative antique light pole from William Jewell College in Liberty, Missouri.

Entering the home from the front porch, you step into the foyer. The foyer features a wall of built in shelves to your left, tile floors, and the formal dining room to the right.

In the formal dining room, you will find hardwood floors, an updated chandelier, and crown molding.


The heart of the home is the over-sized main level living room with recessed lighting, a corner fireplace with tile inlay, and massive windows overlooking the back porch and the koi pond.

The living room leads into an informal dining room with hardwood floors, a built-in window bench, and lots of storage in the form of built-in “hutch style” cabinetry. These built-in cabinets are full of details, like post office / apothecary drawers. The informal dining room has over-sized window, doors leading onto the back patio, and the home’s second moon tunnel.

The kitchen can be found off the informal dining room, with tons of fabulous custom built hickory cabinets. The kitchen is set apart by its huge central island, offering tons of additional work space. The kitchen features lots of custom upgrades, like a raised dishwasher that is better for your back, a large corner pantry, a vegetable sink, double ovens, and a tile back splash.

The master bedroom is down the hall off the kitchen and features tray ceilings, a television cabinet nook, and a private master bath.

Entering the master bath through a pocket door, you will find tile floors, double vanities with his and her sinks, separate seated vanity, modern faucets and fixtures, a jetted tub with tile back splash under stained-glass windows. This home is full of custom upgrades, like the corner pantry in the master bath that includes wall sockets with timers for curling irons and hot rollers! In a separate room of the master bath, there is a standalone shower, toilet, and linen closet. The massive master closet with tons of wire frame shelving is accessed through the master bath as well. The master closet also houses the control box for the exterior lighting and a panic alarm for the security system.


The upper level garage includes a wash sink and pull-down stairs to access the attic. Directly left, you find a built-in home office and the access panel to the home’s security system.

Down the hall is also the laundry area with wash sink and built-in cabinets. Continuing down the hallway, you will find fantastic details like the first of the home’s two moon tunnels, hardwood floor, and a half bath.

To the left hand side of the main level living room, there are two bedrooms with a full hall bath in-between them. The back bedroom is larger, and includes a door onto the covered back porch.

The main level living room hosts central stairs leading down into the lower level. At the bottom of the stairs, the door to the right leads to unfinished storage with John deer doors leading into the lower level garage.

To the left is a hall with full bath and a large lower bedroom with a walk-in closet.


The hall ends in a man-cave with space for a pool table, wood stove, and a wet bar.

Through double doors, you enter a separate unfinished storage area with all of the home’s utilities, controls for the outside lights, double utility panels, well equipment for a 330ft deep well, tank-less/propane fueled/endless water heater, water softener owned, built in humidifier, and electro static filter.

The storage continues under the suspended ceiling garage, with drainage and shop tables built in, wash sink, and additional door for exterior access.

The lower and upper garage are plumbed for an air compressor. The lower garage is an all concrete room (walls, ceiling and floor), and would be great for a workshop or lawn and garden equipment storage.

On the lower level, there is also an all concrete room under the front porch with a steel door. This is a great room for storing wine, as it stays cool. It also makes for a great storm room.

More acreage is negotiable. To see it for yourself, call Susan Today!
