You don’t have to live in an old factory building turned luxury loft downtown to enjoy a piece of Kansas City history. New developments are presenting the ease of the suburbs with an eye toward historic preservation.

Located to the north of the elegantly restored Longview Mansion, Kessler Ridge is named after George Kessler, the famous landscape architect who designed R.A. Long’s property, which came to be known as “the world’s most beautiful farm.”

Full of nature

The abundance of nature in this area is nothing short of inspiring. Longview Lake and Park includes a marina, fishing, swimming areas, campgrounds, nature trails, and walking and bicycle paths. Not to mention, Fred Arbanas 18 Hole Championship Golf course.

City-like feel

Don’t be fooled. Kessler Ridge at New Longview is not country living. Dozens of local restaurants and shops are within a ten minute drive and you’re only 30 minutes from downtown. You can easily get your shopping and a #KCfoodie fix.
