As the busy spring homebuilding season continues, the Inspired Homes team is hard at work throughout the Kansas City area, building affordable, thoughtfully designed homes where buyers want them most.
“We’re focused on buyer needs,” said Todd Lipschutz, president, Inspired Homes. “We don’t want to make the market—we want to serve the market.”
The spring months typically usher in busier workloads for most building companies, but the year so far has been especially exciting for Inspired Homes. In addition to launching a new, exclusive selection of floor plans that include ranch, reverse 1½-story and two-story layouts available in four elevations, Inspired Homes also debuted a new community, Kessler Ridge at New Longview. Inspired Homes is now developing and building in four new home communities throughout the metro area, including:
Never miss a local story.
This picturesque community in Olathe offers the best of both worlds: a scenic, peaceful location within close proximity to enviable recreation, dining, shopping and highway access.
In Huntford, several inventory homes are underway, including the Pecota, a true ranch with 3 bedrooms on the main level and a finished lower level. This four-bedroom, 3½-bathroom home features a French Country elevation with 2,397 square feet of living space, priced at $356,810 and available in June. Additionally, the new two-story Inglenook home with Craftsman elevation is about to begin, giving the buyer a chance to make color selections. This home features four bedrooms, 3½ bathrooms, a 3-car garage and will be located at 14456 S. Houston St. and priced at $348,285.
For those who can’t resist the lure of a blank slate and prefer a custom-built home, Huntford offers an incredible variety of homesites, all enhanced by the community’s gently sloping terrain and natural features. Several available homesites back to the adjacent Greens of Prairie Highlands golf course. Home prices start in the upper $200,000s.
Huntford has become an especially popular destination for families who want to live in the newest boundaries of the Olathe School District. High school students will attend the newly constructed Olathe West High School, which will open this fall. Additionally, nearby amenities offer enticing recreational opportunities, including the inviting Lake Olathe, which will undergo a $30 million expansion this year. New features will include botanical gardens, an event center, zip line, a ropes course, a marina, swimming beach and more—all just up the hill from Huntford.
Kessler Ridge at New Longview
Just to the north of the meticulously restored Longview Mansion awaits a truly remarkable new home opportunity: Kessler Ridge at New Longview, the newest community from Kansas City-based Inspired Homes.
Kessler Ridge is the result of careful planning that celebrates the history of the area while giving homeowners the modern, walkable suburban setting that makes Kessler Ridge much more than a place to call home. It’s a lifestyle destination, putting homeowners within a short stroll of an enviable array of shops, dining, services and recreation, including New Longview Village shops, Longview Lake, a 12-screen movie theater and more. Additionally, Kessler Ridge is located in the award-winning Lee’s Summit School District. Students attend Longview Farm Elementary School, Summit Lakes Middle School and Lee’s Summit West High School.
Construction is underway on several inventory homes and a model home. And for prospective buyers interested in this exciting new community, there’s no better time to purchase. Not only do these early-bird buyers get to take advantage of an enticing selection of homesites; they’re also able to secure the best pricing possible. Homes in Kessler Ridge are priced from $309,990, including the homesite—a rare new home price point in Lee’s Summit.
Located to the south and west of the intersection of Missouri 150 and 291 highways, Kensington Farms is ideally situated to offer residents convenient access to shops, services and the bustling Interstate 435 and 470 employment corridors. Kensington Farms is enveloped in 74 acres of green space, creating a lush backdrop and just enough seclusion to make Kensington Farms feel like a peaceful retreat.
There’s a good reason two of Inspired Homes’s communities are in Lee’s Summit: the city continues to show increased home-buying activity. Lee’s Summit was ranked by Money magazine as one of the “100 Best U.S. Cities to Live In.” And at Kensington Farms, homeowners can take full advantage of an enviable location that’s served by the award-winning Raymore-Peculiar School District, one of many reasons why Kensington Farms has become a popular choice for young families.
The community’s affordability is another compelling factor that continues to drive brisk interest from prospective buyers. Homes at Kensington Farms are priced from the low $200,000s, affordability that again reinforces Inspired Homes’ commitment to its buyers and ensuring they have a thoughtfully designed, quality-built home in an appealing location served by strong schools. And within the community, homeowners have access to inviting amenities that include a swimming pool and playground, making Kensington Farms a coveted destination for prospective buyers.
This idyllic Lenexa community offers a generous amenities package, the perfect place to spend the long summer days that will soon be here. Inside the community, amenities include a spacious clubhouse, large swimming pool, a children’s swimming pool, tennis and basketball courts, a playground and walking trails. And outside The Reserve, favorite recreation spots like Shawnee Mission Park and Lake Lenexa are both nearby, along with a larger network of paved walking and biking trails.
As the current phase in The Reserve nears completion, several homes are underway to help prospective buyers meet a variety of move-in timelines. An inventory home featuring the popular two-story Opus floor plan will be available by June. And a second Opus floor plan, the community’s model home, will be available by early fall.
A new model home will soon be underway, along with eight inventory homes that will showcase the appealing new selection of Inspired Homes floor plans. Four new designs are available—the Calistoga, the Cardinale, the Inglenook, and the Quintessa, each available in one of four elevations. All of the new plans share popular common features like expanded drop zone areas, kitchen command centers with built-in tech ports and second-story loft spaces. Together with several existing plans, The Reserve now offers a mix of ranch, reverse 1½-story and two-story layouts. Prices start at $289,990.
No matter which Inspired Homes community and floor plan a prospective buyer chooses, they’ll have confidence in the partnership with a knowledgeable, dedicated builder.
“We listen to the buyers, so we’ve created a business platform to provide the best experience and security for the customer,” Lipschutz said.
