A Historic Estate with Luxurious Appeal and Timeless Elegance

 

A timeless estate on the banks of the Little Arkansas River, The Riverside Mansion is a 28-room residence with a commanding and elegant presence. Constructed in 1888 by Colonel Burton Harvey Campbell, the premier estate was originally modeled after a Richardsonian Romanesque Scottish castle and features a host of original architectural elements and details. The impressive home is a historic work of art that maintains a warm and inviting aura that’s ideal for everyday living.

The residence and nearby carriage house occupy 14 enchanting bedrooms, each with a private bath and plenty of architectural wonder. Currently operating as a luxury boutique inn, The Riverside Mansion is ideally suited for a permanent residence, vacation escape, corporate retreat, or continued as a premier boutique inn. While the home exudes a historical charm, over three million dollars in renovations have been completed to showcase modern amenities and comfort.

The grand, dramatic foyer sets the tone for the remainder of the home and features soaring ceilings, an unbelievable 250-year old staircase imported from London, a 650-year old Grecian fireplace, and Spanish chevalier lamps. To add to the worldly ambience and character, pieces of fretwork above the turret entry and in the main hallway were carved by a prisoner in an Irish debtors’ prison who was earning his way to freedom with his craftsmanship.

The estate contains an inviting and spacious parlour with parquet flooring, hand-carved mahogany woodwork and ornate fireplace carvings. Additional areas of intrigue include the handsome library that showcases a cherry wood fireplace imported from Spain and a formal dining room that captures romantic sunsets through intricate beveled crystal windows. The formal dining room offers a German imported walnut fireplace, parquet flooring, and elaborate woodwork. In addition, a fantastic gourmet kitchen and solarium that serves as a breakfast room further add to the appeal of this great estate.

With plentiful space to entertain friends and family, the home’s cozy bedroom suites are uniquely different and well appointed. Many feature private balconies that soak in the panoramic views of the river below or the lights of the Wichita skyline. From Jacuzzi tubs, French doors, intricate fireplaces, and hand-crafted tile mosaics, a discovery can be made throughout each inviting suite.     

Just two miles from downtown Wichita, The Riverside Mansion is a welcome escape from the hustle and bustle of city life. With Cessna and Beachcraft among others calling Wichita home, the city is known as the Air Capital of the World. Furthermore, the city is experiencing a thriving cultural scene with an array of unique shops, restaurants, entertainment venues, performing arts, museums, parks, and so much more.
