If Kansas City locals get a good education, work and save for most of their lives . . . Most people will still never come close to living or even visiting something as nice a $10-MILLION local listing that’s garnering renewed attention amid the selling season.

Take a look at a reminder that capitalism has failed:

There’s No Place Like … The Most Expensive Home in Kansas

Check the slap in the face quote to most local residents:

“It was built in 2002–03, and it’s on 4 acres in Mission Hills, which is the nicest area of Kansas City,” says listing agent Susan Fate. “The home is basically Old World craftsmanship with all sorts of modern amenities. It’s just phenomenal.”

Language from the listing:

“Georgian Style Gated Estate in Mission Hills on 4 acres. Attention to detail thru-out. Exterior is Antique Reclaimed Brick, Roof is Vermont slate, hand planked Flooring, Walnut drs, Venetian hand-plastered walls, imported European Flrs, Amish craftsman carved archways & moldings, heated flrs, Limestone patios 2-story CABANA, w/Entertain Area, Kitch, Bdrm & Bath, Screen Por, Gazebo, Infinity Pool/Hot Tub, FP. Overlooking lush grounds is a Spring-fed Lilly Pond w/Entertaining area.”

Now, a closer look shows us that this house has been vacant for about a year. Still, the plush views and opulent interior shouldn’t inspire envy from Kansas City residents . . . Instead, it’s probably more productive to simply file this one away as a counter-argument for whenever locals talkers start blathering about the evils of “socialism” and wanting to keep wages down or strip away healthcare.

You decide . . .
