SHAWNEE CAENEN CASTLE SOLD ONLINE!!!



The iconic castle in the Golden Ghetto will change hands one again . . .

KC Biz Journal: Auction delivers buyer for Shawnee castle

Deets:

North Kansas City-based Cates Auction & Realty Co. Inc. conducted the bidding between June 13 and July 30. The floor for the bidding was $775,000; the property initially was listed with Shawnee-based Parkway Real Estate for $1.8 million. The structure was built in 1907 and sits on 1.11 acres at 12401 Johnson Drive.

Kelly bought the castle in 2003 and said it was dilapidated. She substantially renovated the property to restore its “hint of magic.” Upgrades included a professional kitchen, and Kelly used the facility for an event space and then a farm-to-table restaurant, which closed in October 2017. Kelly said she is moving on to pursue other opportunities.

Correction . . . That should read HER DAD BOUGHT HER A CASTLE but her restaurant still didn't work out . . . Because most restaurants don't make it.

Also, the reviews were horrible and her concept was a flop mostly because it was always out of stock and the menu was pretty much a guessing game.

Moreover, most people talk endlessly about eating healthy right up until they order their food. 

As for her opportunities . . .



They mostly revolve around her being damn hot if a collection of glam photos we found still lingering on Pintrest remain accurate.

We can only hope. 

Developing . . .

Her parents are successful developers. Whatever successful in that business is supposed to mean.. Neighbors Construction Company, Inc. Lenexa. Established 1951.

No doubt her life has been a tough struggle and she's had to fight for every penny.

Tony is so right--when one would get to the table, the food on the menu--well, it was all out. She hadn't bought the ingredients or prepped the food. And the substitutes were horrid cuts of fatty meat. Inedible.

She was first loser out the door on a national cable chef competition show. No surprise there.

For her parents' sake, hope Princess Kelly finds someone to take her off their hands. Not sure those Pinterest photos are gonna do the trick once guys meet her.

As for Shawnee's sake, look forward to seeing what the new owners do with Caenen Castle! It is a lovely property, and downtown Shawnee is getting hot--as witnessed by the 66203 zip code story today on Shawnee Mission Post.

From realtor.com. So you KNOW it must be true! Move over, Brookside!!!! Maybe due to Frank White flight, c. 2019, Tracy Thomas, all rights reserved, this is where Brooksiders and Waldonians any Hyde Park hipsters are headed!!!

McLains Market is coming to Nieman Rd, catty corner from City Hall at Johnson Drive... In the former OK Garage, on the part of Nieman I call Nieman Never, the 2 year streetscape nightmare), with lane diets, from 4 to 3 to 4 to 3 lanes. Hip and trendy, baby.

McLain's is a rebrand and expansion of wildly popular McLains Bakery, now a restaurant and bar as well. Opening in 2020.

Neighbors Construction was reputed for well-managed project sites....highly rated in client satisfaction....timely paid their established contractors....minimal schedule delays....and occupational safety recognitions, for the projects my skilled-trades family members have been involved in over the recent two decades. They're preferred by certain laborers, union, or not, because the projects are kept better organized than "others"....not shaming by naming....because it's a tough industry to manage.

I remember a pickup call in my taxi one late afternoon at La Bodega in Leawood; Ms. Kelly was helped in. Put it mildly, she was overserved.
