Adorable 1870's vintage house with modern ceiling fans, brand new floors, and uptown style throughout. Brand new LG washer and dryer, LG fridge, and Amana stove. New Bosch dishwasher to be installed in August 2015. Time Warner Premium Cable with HBO, Ultimate Internet (100 Mpbs), and Phone with Unlimited Long Distance to U.S. and Canada. The living room features a sleeper sofa, 2 recliner chairs, a 48-inch flat screen TV and DVD / USB / Blu-Ray player, and a mirrored hall closet.
The larger bedroom has a King-sized bed with a high quality, firm quilted-top mattress, two closets, a big dresser with six drawers, and a vanity sink. The bed in the smaller bedroom has a very comfortable firm Twin XL mattress (accommodates tall people). The smaller bedroom features bookcases, custom closet with drawers, and a desk for two. There is a bonus room at the back of the house with a green and white desk, filing cabinet, and swivel chair, plus printer-copier-scanner, rechargeable battery charger, office supplies, and more. If preferred instead of an office, the bonus room can can fit a twin-XL size mattress.
The bathroom and kitchen are new and completely remodeled, except for the lovely vintage built-in cabinets. Right off the kitchen, you'll find a laundry room with stylish LG high efficiency washer and dryer. There's an enclosed front porch, and a brick patio with a lovely backyard out back.
The house is only 1 story, but the garage has 2 levels. The first level has space for your car. A spacious storage area is provided upstairs. The garage has an automatic garage door opener and is spacious with room for 1 large car or pick-up truck. The driveway has space for 1 small car. The house has a fully monitored security system.
The kitchen has a brand new stove, refrigerator with bottom freezer drawer, double sink, microwave, toaster, blender, lovely dishes, glassware, movable kitchen island, and pots and pans (stainless steel and cast iron).
Sheets in various sizes ... King (for the main bedroom), Twin XL (for the second bedroom), and Full (for the sleeper sofa) are provided, as well as blankets and three sets of high quality towels. The mattresses and pillows have hypoallergenic anti-dust mite covers, zippered all the way around.
If you would enjoy staying in a vibrant midtown area that is walkable, bike-friendly, and fun, you will love this house and its location. I have hosted touring opera singers, traveling health workers, students on internships, executives on short-term assignments, new grandparents in town to help with the baby, and people new to the area and needing a temporary "landing place." Whatever your need, I feel certain you'll be impressed with the cleanliness, convenience, and style of this charming home in Westport. It is one of a kind and a work of art.
Please feel free to contact me with any questions. Looking forward to hearing from you!

To reserve the house, we'll arrange a phone call where we can discuss the house and I can answer your questions. Then I'll draft up a lease agreement for you to review, and if you like, we can discuss the terms over e-mail or phone. Once you are comfortable with the terms of the lease agreement, you'll need to sign the agreement (it's easy to sign it from your phone or computer using Docusign). Meanwhile you'll need to submit the results of your credit check (you pay for this online for $15.99 from Experian). Once everything has checked out OK, I'll sign the lease agreement as well, and then you can submit your first payment, either through FlipKey's online payment system or by mailing me a check.
If you're staying for 2 months or less, I require 50% payment at the time of booking, plus $1000 security deposit and the remainder of the reservation to be paid 15 days prior to check-in. If staying 3 months or more, I require 1 month's rent at the time of booking, plus $1000 security deposit and 1 more month of rent to be paid 15 days prior to check-in.
For cancellations, your deposits are fully refundable any time up to 60 days prior to your arrival date. In the event of cancellations (or changes to the reservation) less than 60 days prior to your arrival date, you are entitled to a refund, minus a 15% re-booking fee, only for the nights that are re-booked to another tenant. If your change to the reservation means that you are still coming, but for a shorter time, such that the stay is less than 30 days, you will still be charged for the full 30 days. Thirty (30) days is the minimum stay required by the city's zoning ordinances.
We do not take stays of less than 30 days, as short-term stays are illegal in single family homes and residential apartments in Kansas City, MO, per the planning code. (The only exception is for places with a bed and breakfast permit, and this is only granted where a host is present and stays overnight on the premises or adjacent premises.)...Read more
