Model Home 3,001 to 6,000 square feet

The Roosevelt

The Roosevelt was purposefully designed to have a different feel than other model homes in the Kansas City market. The design and build teams wanted to give it a sense of timelessness paired with refreshing luxury. To achieve this, they fused modern European-style architectural features with natural, organic finishes, making the home feel warm and inviting yet still modern. They accomplished this cohesion of styles with color, texture and forms—all while emphasizing natural materials as much as possible.

The home’s comprehensive color palette is warm, neutral and monochromatic, with a touch of muted green, grounding it in nature. Meanwhile, its open floor plan provides an ideal backdrop for the large, black metal-framed windows throughout the home, offering generous views of the outdoors. The great room features a two-story vaulted ceiling that highlights the space’s natural wood beams and a custom fireplace with limestone surround. The kitchen boasts a large, Venetian plaster-arched hood with a quartzite backsplash, complementing the organic feel. Here, textural details can be seen both in the custom-reeded cabinetry on the island and the built-in hutch. The arches—found in door openings and cabinetry—also add a classic Old World-style touch. Overall, the home is traditional in form but distinctively modern in execution.
