The most expensive house in Kansas is at 935 Shawnee Rd. This home is not huge – you may have noticed that at a paltry 3,856 sqft, 4 beds and 2 baths, this house is smaller than the normal luxury mansion. It’s also by far the oldest on this whole list. So why does it have a $10 million price tag?

The answer is in its history. This historic house is known as the Sauer Castle, an Italian building registered as a Historic Place in the national registry, built way back in 1866 (for American architecture, that’s pretty old).

The house is made from old-style brick and has a classic wooden roof. It has a nearly 3-acre plot of land and, despite its small living space, contains three glorious fireplaces for those cold Kansas nights.

The house has been the subject of many ghost stories over the years too. You’re buying more than a home with this one – you’re buying into history.
