Enveloped by a beautiful pastoral setting, the new residential community of Leabrooke Town Manor located off Kenneth Road and 148th St. is one of Leawood’s most desirable maintenance-provided neighborhoods. The Home Builders Association of Greater Kansas City agrees, awarding homes in this community Parade Award Winners in both the 2015 Fall Parade of Homes and 2016 Spring Parade of Homes.
“The community has attracted a wide array of prospective homebuyers from single professionals, to families with young children, empty-nesters, and retirees desiring a maintenance-provided lifestyle,” said Patty Hummel, who markets the community for ReeceNichols. “Sales have been brisk!”
Prices in this luxurious and peaceful community range from $352,500 to $366,000.
“We fully expect our remaining homes to sell fast,” Hummel said.

The monthly homeowners dues include fire and property liability insurance covering the home, fixtures and equipment such as the HVAC; resident water and sewer; repair and replacement of roof and gutters; mowing, edging, trimming, fertilizing and weeding of lawns; pruning of all trees and bushes; snow removal; and annual start-up, winterization and repair of the lawn sprinkler system.
The annual Leabrooke Master HOA dues include trash pick-up, the swimming pool, Sport Court with tennis and basketball, a stocked fishing pond, and the clubhouse with exercise facility.
The reverse floor plan offers the master bedroom and laundry on the main floor, and boasts a spacious lower level which includes two bedrooms, a full bathroom, roomy living area, and separate storage rooms.
“These homes feature an expanded egress well on the lower level windows, allowing for additional light, in turn, capturing a feeling of first floor living,” said Hummel. The Coventry lower level living area has an option to include a centered fireplace enveloped by a pair of large windows that looks out into the optional landscaped courtyard.
The upscale interior features throughout the Leabrooke Town Manor community include upgraded 3½-inch hardwood oak floors, knotty alder cabinetry, brushed nickel or oil rubbed hardware, crown molding, iron spindles, oak tread and designer carpet on the stairs, upgraded 12x24 inch tile in the bathrooms, stone or tile fireplaces, and beautiful wood treatment on many of the ceilings.
The state-of-the-art kitchens offer granite or quartz countertops with a generous breakfast bar allowing for a secondary eating area, and a stainless steel appliance package complete with a gas self-cleaning range. All homes feature granite or marble vanity tops in the bathrooms.
Each home is highlighted by a textured stucco and rock exterior, a lush landscaped yard, and a private patio. All homes also include an attached two-car garage with 8-foot insulated doors and Lift Master belt driven openers.
“This is an attractive aspect for our buyers, particularly given that Leawood was recently ranked the fifth best out of 1,268 small cities in the U.S. rated by WalletHub for its ‘2015’s Best & Worst Small Cities in America’ article,” said Hummel.
According to Kevin Jeffries, President and CEO of the Leawood Chamber of Commerce, because Leabrooke Town Manor is located at the southern-most boundary of the city, it is most likely one of the last opportunities for people to buy a new residence in Leawood at this price point.
“Leabrooke Town Manor offers a great price point for individuals wanting to own a new family residence in Leawood,” Jeffries explained. “It works for those wanting to possibly downsize, as well as those wanting the amenities offered by a maintenance-provided community.”
Leabrooke Town Manor is conveniently located within a few minutes’ drive of numerous grocery stores, major retailers, restaurants, urgent care clinics, and many major highways. Residents needing a more urban fix will find unique artistic and entertainment options at nearby Park Place, Town Center Plaza and Town Center Crossing, and Prairie Fire.
What’s more, Leabrooke Town Manor is adjacent to beautiful Ironwoods Park encompassing a nature center, outdoor amphitheater, physical fitness challenge course, fishing, and cabins for group overnights.
