SAB Homes won 15 awards in the Fall Parade of Homes this week, including four Grand Prize “Pick of the Parade” and three First Place “Distinctive Plan & Design” winners. This year, the Lee’s Summit-based builder included three new plans never before seen in Kansas City, according to Adrienne Morfeld, SAB’s marketing director and warranty manager.
One of the new plans, the Redland, won the Grand Prize Pick of the Parade Award for single-family homes priced from $391,000 to $400,000. Built as a spec home in Cider Mill Ridge at the National and located at 9778 Apple Blossom Lane in Parkville, the Redland offers buyers 2,666 square feet of living space with four bedrooms, 3½ bathrooms, a three-car garage and an open loft area on the second floor. This home, which sells for $392,450, features a kitchen with custom cabinetry, a large center island, a hidden walk-in pantry, wide-planked wood floors, mud room, and lots of storage options. The master suite is spacious and well-appointed.
Though SAB Homes is not a custom homebuilder, they do allow for some customization and personalization in the plans they build.
“At SAB, you don’t have to be led down a path of cookie cutter,” Morfeld said. “We continually work with our architect to develop new plans, as well as update and tweak the plans we’ve previously built. (Builder) Scott (Bamesberger ) focuses on making clients happy.”
Stairs are trimmed in wood and the living room has built-in bookcases on either side of the fireplace. Upstairs bedrooms come with cathedral or coffered ceilings and interesting roof lines. “These are all great examples of features that are standard with our plans that might be upgrades with other builders,” Morfeld said. “We don’t cut corners. The Redland plan in Parkville is a shining example of the quality that SAB Homes is all about.”
Bamesberger has owned and operated SAB Homes since 1989. His staff includes two full-time designers, Katie Reece and Megan Gensky, who offer free design consultation to those who build with SAB. Charlene Smith of Excel Design also designs homes for SAB for the Parade of Homes. Director of Sales Brad Chaney is a new addition to the team who meets with all clients to guide them throughout the homebuilding process.
“We’re all about quality,” Morfeld commented. “We treat all the houses we build the same, no matter the price point. All get the same focus and attention. The most important thing we market is quality and customer service,” she added, “When building a new construction home, it’s important to do your research about the builder. We like to be very transparent, so we use an independent survey service to get feedback from our buyers. These reviews are available to the public at guildquality.com/SAB-Homes.”
That attention to quality does not end when the homebuyer moves in, either. SAB Homes handles all the warranty service for the homes it builds, in keeping with the company’s motto: “We build our homes with PRIDE.” PRIDE is an acronym for Professionalism, Reliability, Integrity, Distinction and Excellence & Ethics.
And with that pride, SAB invites you to tour all eight of our fully furnished Parade homes. All the SAB homes featured in the Parade this year were double entered in two contest categories: Distinctive Design, and the Pick of the Parade.
SAB’s Manchester Plan can be seen at 1505 SW Antiquity Drive in Lee’s Summit’s Siena at Longview subdivision. Next door, at 1508, stands the Westhampton plan featuring a three-car garage. It was awarded the Grand Prize Pick of the Parade for single-family homes priced from $310,000 to $330,000.
At Creekmoor Villas in Raymore, SAB Homes showcases two of their newest floor plans, both a popular reverse story and a half. Visit the Portland plan at 945 Birsay Court and the Camberlaine plan at 1217 Buckingham Court. Both of these plans are Grand Prize Pick of the Parade and First Place Distinctive Plan & Design winners this year in the category of homes priced from $265,000 to $300,000.
The Greens at Prairie Highlands is where you’ll find the Stratford plan, complete with three-car garage. This plan, which won a first place prize for Distinctive Design, is located at 26018 W. 143rd Terrace in Olathe, Kan.
There are two Augusta plans on this year’s tour. They can be found at 2424 SW Hickory Lane at the Eagle Creek subdivision in Lee’s Summit; and 813 Old Hickory Road in Greenwood’s Woodland Trails subdivision.
