It won’t be long before the beautifully landscaped terrain at Cedar Creek is in full spring bloom. But in the meantime, brisk construction activity continues throughout the resort-style community, especially in three of Cedar Creek’s newest neighborhoods.
Valley Ridge is quickly attracting the attention of prospective homeowners interested in the neighborhood’s prime location. Residents are near Cedar Creek Elementary School, Olathe City Park and an area swimming pool. Factor in Cedar Creek’s extensive amenities package, and it’s no wonder that prospective buyers are eager to immerse themselves in all that Cedar Creek has to offer.
As high demand drives traffic to Valley Ridge, a steady pace of building activity continues throughout the neighborhood. New Mark Homes, Roeser Homes, James Engle Custom Homes, C&M Builders, Gabriel Homes and Tabernacle Homes are the featured builders in Valley Ridge, all of which have speculative homes underway in a variety of floor plans that include 1½-story, reverse 1½-story and two-story layouts.
Additionally, a new model row is underway, featuring homes from Gabriel Homes, C&M Builders, James Engle Custom Homes, Roeser Homes and New Mark Homes. The models will open this spring. Tabernacle Homes and Pauli Homes also have speculative homes for sale.
Never miss a local story.
For prospective buyers who prefer a custom-built home, a number of spectacular homesites are available that take full advantage of the semi-wooded terrain and surrounding scenery. Homes in Valley Ridge start in the low $400,000s.
Hidden Lake Estates offers enviable wooded views near the community’s swim and racquet facility. Four speculative homes are currently available in the neighborhood, including a reverse 1½-story, three-bedroom, 2½-bathroom Taylor National home from C&M Builders and a 1½-story Catalina IV home from James Engle Custom Homes with five bedrooms and 7½ bathrooms, both of which are immediately available.
Additionally, Roeser Homes has two speculative homes underway in the neighborhood: a 1½-story Carter II home with six bedrooms and 5½ bathrooms that will be available in 30 days; and a four-bedroom, reverse 1½-story Firethorn with four full bathrooms and two half-bathrooms that will be available in 75 days. Speculative home prices range from the upper $700,000s to more than $1 million.
Additionally, an enticing selection of 35 new homesites will be available in Hidden Lake Estates’ new phase, scheduled to open later this year. Prospective buyers eager to accommodate a faster move-in timeline can choose from walkout, daylight and level homesites that are thoughtfully interspersed with wooded areas. Home prices start in the $600,000s.
And in a testament to the appeal of Hidden Lake Estates, Cedar Creek builder Austin Roeser of Roeser Homes is putting the finishing touches on his personal home, which he’s been building in the neighborhood (along with two custom-built homes and a speculative home).
“I build all over the Kansas City metro area, which means I have the flexibility to build my home where I want,” he said. “I choose Cedar Creek.”
Prospective buyers who covet golf course living should make a beeline for The Ridge at Shadow Glen, which offers the last remaining golf course homesites in Cedar Creek.
Homes in The Ridge at Shadow Glen range from the mid-$500,000s to more than $900,000. Roeser Homes and Tabernacle Homes both have a variety of reverse 1½-story speculative homes underway, with availability ranging from 120 to 180 days. Prices start in the mid-$500,000s.
Additionally, The Ridge at Shadow Glen offers residents the convenience of maintenance-provided living, giving them more time to enjoy the extensive amenities and recreation that Cedar Creek has to offer.
For those interested in homes that are move-in ready, Prairie Homes just finished a four-bedroom, three-bathroom reverse 1½-story Shadow I floor plan in the Villas of Shadow Glen. Priced at $519,900, the home includes a view of Cedar Creek’s award-winning Shadow Glen golf club
No visit to Cedar Creek is complete without a tour of the resort-style community’s extensive amenities package that includes two swimming pools, the 65-acre Shadow Lake, four lighted tennis courts, jogging and walking trails, the Swim & Racquet Club and an indoor gymnasium that’s equipped for basketball, volleyball, aerobics and a performance stage.
In addition to nearby Cedar Creek Elementary School, Cedar Creek students also attend Mission Trail Junior High School and the new Olathe West High School. The community is also within close proximity to St. James Academy Catholic High School.
