How Much Does Your Dream House Cost? Tour Three $1.15 Million Homes

See how far a million dollars goes in three locations across the country.

If you had a million dollars, would you be able to buy your dream home? Because house prices vary so much by location, what you get for your money differs based on where you live. On our sixth episode of Listing Price, we tour three homes across the country that are all listed at just over 1 million dollars. 

From the quiet Midwest suburbs to a big city in the South, these homes range from 3,000 square feet to almost 5,000. They all have at least three bedrooms and four bathrooms, but each comes with unique amenities. The first home features a climate-controlled walk-in wine cellar, while the second house has a large game room with a putting green where you can practice your swing at home. If you’re big on entertaining, you might opt for the third home, which has an enormous patio with a stunning view

Here's what $1.15 million can buy across the country.

The first home is a two-story in Leawood, Kansas, a quiet suburb of Kansas City with one of the fastest growing populations in the country. This gorgeous four-bedroom, five-bathroom home was built in 2001 and sits on 0.69 acres. The home's front door opens into a large open living space with high ceilings, ornate columns, and decorative chandeliers.

Opposite the fireplace is the kitchen, which features a large island and French-style cabinetry, dining area, and a screened-in porch. The primary bedroom and guest bedroom are both on the main level, and each has its own bathroom.

The last home is in Houston, Texas. It was built in 1960, but you’d never guess that based on its upgrades. The first floor features a large family room with plenty of space for seating and gorgeous wood floors throughout. It opens to the kitchen, which is separated from the family room by a raised breakfast bar. 

The newly-renovated kitchen has a clean, modern design, with stainless appliances, black cabinets, and quartz countertops. In addition to the breakfast bar, there’s a built-in banquette that’s perfect for quiet mornings or family dinners. A formal dining room sits on the other side of the living area. 

The home has four bedrooms. The largest is the primary bedroom, which has an ensuite bath with a walk-in shower and bath, double vanities, plenty of storage, and even a beverage station where you can start your day with a cup of coffee or unwind in the evening with a glass of wine in the tub. 

Gorgeous glass doors in the bedroom lead out to the patio, which is the perfect size for relaxing around the fire pit or hosting small gatherings. The first floor holds two more bedrooms, each with a bathroom decorated with bright wallpaper. 

Downstairs, a huge family game room is the star of the show. Outfitted with Astroturf flooring that doubles as a putting green, this area is the ultimate space to entertain or hang out with the family.
