Located on the south side of Legacy Park on Blackwell Parkway in Lee’s Summit, Legacy Wood offers a great deal of home value, lifestyle amenities and scenic beauty for the money.
One of the most attractive aspects of the community is the adjacent Legacy Park Community Center, highlighted by a 711-acre recreational area with a full-service gym, dodge ball, racquetball and basketball courts; a public pool and fun zone; 25-acre lake; and other features. It also has picnic shelters, football, baseball and soccer fields, several playgrounds, an 18-hole disc golf course, a meandering 5.2-mile wildlife trail and numerous family activities throughout the year.
According to Brian Wood, who markets the community with Vicki Shepherd, “Having these amenities so close really adds to the carefree lifestyle ambiance of the neighborhood and is attractive to a wide range of buyers from young couples to families and empty-nesters.”
Other amenities, found within the development, encompass a large patio area and cabana for community parties, a Junior Olympic-size pool large enough for the homeowners association to form a competitive swim team and a zero-entry kiddy pool with interactive bubble water feature and large mushroom umbrella waterfall.
Another major draw to Legacy Wood is the outstanding builders, including Nick Zvacek of Nick Zvacek Construction Inc , Nick Klopfenstine of Klopfenstine Construction Inc., Billy Spellerberg of Spellerberg Construction, Troy Haas of Empire Homes, Doug Park of Park Homes LLC, Ben Cerra of Ben Cerra Construction, Larry Grego of LG Homes and Jud Wood of Wood Brothers Construction Inc.
“Each of our builders is known for offering great quality and a good price,” Wood said. “They also pride themselves on building homes they would like to live in. That is why prospective buyers will find many extra features in our homes.”
The homes themselves are situated on 133 picturesque acres of rolling meadows featuring spacious lots, many of which back up to woods or to the adjacent Legacy Park Community Center.
Forty-four new home sites are currently available for reservation, including walkout, daylight and large flat lots, with prices ranging from $65,000 to $87,000. The homes will range from $299,900 to $440,000. The available home styles that are coming soon will be ranch, reverse 11/2-story, two-story and California splits.
LG Homes has a new spec home featuring a very open, 2,500-square-foot, two-story floor plan, a three-car garage, hardwood floors, custom kitchen cabinetry with granite counter tops, a large pantry, large master suite, an upstairs laundry room and tiled bathroom floors. This home is priced at $297,900.
Buyers have been snapping up homes and home sites in Legacy Wood for the past two years and that trend shows no signs of letting up. With that in mind, Wood Family Development is adding a new fifth phase with 44 premium home sites — many of which are available for custom build jobs — to ensure an ample supply this year.
Many residents describe Lee’s Summit as a small town within a big city that despite its size offers an abundance of shopping and services, and is within short driving distance via an excellent network of highways to other parts of the metro area, including numerous employment centers in adjacent Johnson County.
Additionally, its AAA-rated Lee’s Summit School District provides a superb public school education recognized in Missouri and nationwide for its progressive programs and commitment to excellence.
“Legacy Wood has a great deal to offer a wide range of homebuyers,” Wood said. “The diversity of our builders, the many different plans, the number of sales and our brisk construction schedules speak to that, and we invite people to come by and take a look at what might be their next dream home.”
