The 82-acre site in Wyandot County has its own plane hangar and landing zone, which is on the market for $ 2.7 million.
It used to be the home of a well-known family doctor and longtime coroner in the county.
Approximately 22 miles west of downtown Kansas City, this estate is located at 5300 N. 123rd St., surrounded by rolling hills and wooded expanses.
Built in 1989 for Alain and Philis Hancock, the 6,850-square-foot home features vaulted ceilings and wonderful rooms with floor-to-ceiling stone fireplaces. It offers a “main floor” life with 4 bedrooms, 3 full bathrooms, 2 half bathrooms, a laundry room and a large entertainment space.
The walkout basement on the lower floor has a large stone fireplace, full kitchen and wet bar. The area faces the deck and swimming pool.
“We called the downstairs a party room,” said Philis Hancock, who shared a house with her husband, who died for more than 30 years. “The whole family enjoyed this property very much. It’s a nice land and I hope someone else enjoys it like us.”
“It’s like entering the 80’s,” said Stephanie Clapp, a list agent at Reece-Nichols. “The lower floors featured teal floors, decorated with pink and teal palm trees and Hawaiian décor,” she said.
“I need an update,” she added. “It’s a beautiful property.”
The list also includes a concrete-covered walk-in safe, some office areas, and storage space under the garage. The house is located on 3 acres of land, but the property for sale included an additional 79 acres, which was rented to cattle management.
Due to its proximity to the Kansas Speedway and Village West, Clap said the property was of interest to developers and could possibly turn into a golf course or clubhouse. Real estate is for sale for land rather than home.
According to his obituary, in the 1960s and 1970s, Alan Hancock was the captain and doctor of the Air Force Reserve Command, and later a longtime family doctor in Wyandot County.
Since 1966, Hancock has also worked as a coroner in Wyandotte County. He was also a FAA-designated aviation medical inspector, deputy sheriff and amateur radio operator in Wyandot County.
He died on April 17, 2020 at the age of 84.
“Alain enjoyed life and he enjoyed the work of the coroner and solving the mystery,” his wife said.
Philis Hancock has shrunk, but still lives in the county, but the property has a special meaning to the family.
One of her granddaughters recently held her wedding on the premises.
“One of the reasons we bought this property was that we had enough space for the landing zone,” said Philis Hancock, who said her husband had flown a short-range takeoff and landing mall plane. (85) said. “He built a hangar on the plane’s premises,” she added.
The couple bought real estate after being acquired from their previous residence to give way to Kansas Speedway. “I wanted more land,” she said.
