The Sondern-Adler house in Kansas City, next door to Thomas Hart Benton's house, sold at auction yesterday to an unidentified Nebraska buyer for a bid of $920,000 plus the auction house commission of 10%, making the total price $1,012,000. Hardly a steal.

It isn't out of the woods yet. The new owner could easily demolish the place if the lot is big enough for a new McMansion with a view of Devil's Dip.

Speculation in Kansas City is that the buyer, who promises to be a diligent caretaker of the house, will use it as a high-priced Air B&B--unless he already planned to move from Nebraska to Kansas City for business reasons. The neighborhood (Roanoke) is not particularly desirable. Hemingway lived nearby when young and writing at his best.

I've been to the house. Plenty of room for a McDonald's but too far from the beaten path. Not a great neighborhood. It certainly is next to the TH Benton house.
