Queen Anne home in Kansas City, Missouri

Photo: Kent T. Dicus, Michael G. Ohlson, Sr.
Kent T. Dicus and Michael G. Ohlson, Sr. submitted this photo of a 12-room Queen Anne mansion. The Queen Anne home has 23 original stained-glass windows and nine different kinds of wood on the main two floors.

Since this photo was taken, the five chimneys have been rebuilt to appear as they were originally appeared, with the "dog-knots" atop them. Seven of the eight fireplace mantels are original, and all of the fireplaces now work.

The home incorporates many of the typical Queen Anne features - dentil molding, tower, steeply-pitched roof, Palladian windows, dormers, gables and box-bay windows. A dumbwaiter connects from the basement through the kitchen, back stairs and on up to the third floor (which is an unfinished ballroom).
