Although it is an oft heard real estate phrase, “Location, Location, Location” really is paramount in choosing a community that fits your particular needs, desires and lifestyle.
Enveloped by a beautiful pastoral setting, the new residential community of Leabrooke Town Manor is just moments away from a wealth of lifestyle amenities.
Located just off Kenneth Road and 148th Street, the community is within five minutes of grocery stores; major retailers like Walmart, Target and Lowes; and several banks, in addition to 10 minutes from urgent care clinics, St. Luke’s South and Menorah Medical Center, and many major highways.
Conveniently located nearby are the Shops at Iron Horse Centre and the Nall Valley Shops, where residents will find a wide array of businesses including a pharmacy, animal hospital, beauty salons, restaurants and furniture stores.
Residents needing a more urban fix will find unique artistic and entertainment options at nearby Park Place, a charming retail and dining area; Town Center Plaza and Town Center Crossing, home to over 90 of Kansas City's finest stores and restaurants; and Prairie Fire, featuring the new Museum at Prairie Fire, Cinetopia movie theater, a specialty grocery store, restaurants, beauty services, entertainment and guided wetlands.
What’s more, Leabrooke Town Manor is adjacent to beautiful Ironwoods Park encompassing a nature center, outdoor amphitheater, physical fitness challenge course, fishing and cabins for group overnights. Golf enthusiasts are also just a few miles from Ironwoods Golf Club, one of the Kansas City area’s premier public courses.
Built by Taylor Sterling Construction Company and developed by Leabrooke Townhomes LLC, this new residential community is reminiscent of a quaint European village featuring 11 unique floor plans, a choice of three or four bedrooms and all with master suites on the main level. Available designs also include a choice of 11/2-story or reverse plans with daylight, walkout or egress lower levels. Homes start at $339,000.
Kevin Jeffries, president and CEO of the Leawood Chamber of Commerce, said that because Leabrooke Town Manor is at the southern-most boundary of the city, it is most likely one of the last opportunities for people to buy a new residence in Leawood at this price point.
“Leabrooke Town Manor offers a great price point for individuals wanting to own a new family residence in Leawood. It works for those wanting to possibly downsize, as well as those wanting the amenities offered by a maintenance-provided community.”
Upscale interior features at Leabrooke Town Manor include 3-inch select white oak hardwood floors, custom knotty alder cabinetry, iron spindles, oak tread and designer carpet on the stairs, a quiet floor system, upgraded 12- by 24-inch tile in the bathrooms, stone or tile fireplaces, built-in bookcases and beautiful wood treatment on many of the ceilings.
The state-of-the-art kitchen offers granite or quartz counter tops with a generous breakfast bar allowing for a secondary eating area, and stainless steel appliances complete with a gas self-cleaning range. All homes feature granite or marble vanity tops in the bathrooms and upgraded soaker tubs in the master bath.
Every home includes a textured stucco and stone exterior, lush landscaped yard and features either a private deck or patio. All homes include an attached two-car garage with 8-foot insulated doors and Lift Master belt-driven openers.
“Knowing many of our buyers are moving from single-family homes with custom finishes, we have designed and built these luxurious townhomes to include the fine finishes that they are already accustomed to,” said Daniel Taylor, the builder of the community. “What’s more, we’ve already included these upgrades as standard in our list price.”
The monthly HOA dues include lawn maintenance, pruning of all trees and bushes, snow removal, annual start-up, winterization and repair of the lawn sprinkler system, repair and replacement of roof and gutters, water and sewer, fire and property liability insurance encompassing the home, fixtures, and equipment such as the HVAC.
The residents also enjoy a wealth of outdoor amenities offered by the Leabrooke Master HOA for an annual fee, which includes a swimming pool, Sport Court with tennis and basketball, stocked fishing pond, and clubhouse with exercise facility.
For residents with children, Leabrooke Town Manor feeds into the Blue Valley School District including Prairie Star Elementary, Prairie Star Middle and Blue Valley High schools.
Interest has been at a brisk pace and reservations are currently being taken. The developer is also offering a “Sizzling Summer incentive” where the homeowner association dues will be paid through 2016 with each purchase agreement signed by July 31.
