A variety of single family villa homes are nearing completion in Staley Hills Villas, presenting the newest option for maintenance provided living in Kansas City’s Northland.
Sandy Maag, ReeceNichols real estate agent and Staley Hills Villas co-community manager, has seen a trend towards those seeking maintenance provided homeownership.
“Villa living was once seen as something just for retirees or empty-nesters,” explains Maag. “However, a growing number of young professionals and young families are looking at maintenance provided homes as a way to free up more time to focus on their career or family or both. The ‘lock-and-leave’ option is also attractive to those who travel, regardless of age or life stage.”
Staley Hills Villas include 38 well-appointed ranch and reverse 11/2-story floor plans by Ernst Brothers Construction and Summit Homes. The homes range from approximately 1,400 – 2,000 square feet and start in the $300,000s.
“Ernst Brothers and Summit Homes understand what finishes villa buyers are looking for and what features are important in this style of home,” said Maag. “Special attention has been given to the layout and design of each villa to ensure features such as granite countertops, hardwood floors and ample entertaining and storage space are included.”
A stone and masonry front façade requirement and lush landscaping add to the curb appeal of homes throughout the neighborhood.
Situated north of MO-152 off N. Woodland Avenue and Shoal Creek Parkway, Staley Hills Villas is part of the larger Staley Hills community. The neighborhood is close to many conveniences such as Zona Rosa and has excellent access to major highways, Kansas City International Airport and downtown Kansas City.
Staley Hills Villas residents will enjoy a retreat from the hustle and bustle of everyday life with full access to the neighborhood’s crystal-clear swimming pool, scenic walking trails, and two dramatic water features bordering the community’s southern entrance. Anne Garney Park is just a short walk across N. Woodland Ave. and includes a large playground and additional walking trails.
The community’s latest amenity, Benton House of Staley Hills, opened last month and offers high-quality assisted living and memory care. Benton House features 59 apartment style suites situated around two lushly landscaped courtyards and provides several areas for residents and their friends and families to gather for meals, entertainment and conversation.
“This area has seen a tremendous amount of growth in the past few years, fueled mostly by its accessibility to some of the area’s major employers and inclusion in the attendance boundaries of North Kansas City School District’s Staley High School,” said Maag. “The addition of maintenance provided villas and Benton House allows generations of families to live close by and is one more reason why people will want to call Staley Hills Villas home.”
The first of two Staley Hills Villas model homes is now open. Model home hours are Tuesday 1-5 p.m., Wednesday – Sunday 12-5 p.m. and Monday by appointment. Private showings may be scheduled by calling 816.533.2501.
