Now that school is back in session, schedules seem crazier and more demanding than ever. The cure for stressful weekdays? The peaceful, resort-style surroundings of Cedar Creek, which residents agree feels like a daily vacation.
Whether you want to spend a few hours in one of two swimming pools, enjoy a sunset sail on the 65-acre Shadow Lake or gather friends and family for a round at the award-winning, 18-hole Shadow Glen Golf Club, Cedar Creek’s extensive amenities offer these and much more. Homeowners also have access to a free-form swimming pool, four lighted tennis courts, a second swimming pool in the Southglen neighborhood, jogging and walking trails, the Swim & Racquet Club and an indoor gymnasium that’s equipped for basketball, volleyball, aerobics and a performance stage.
The resort-style amenities are undoubtedly enticing, yet Cedar Creek also offers an exemplary selection of homes from some of Kansas City’s best builders. And now, there’s never been a better time for prospective homeowners to find their dream home in one of Cedar Creek’s architecturally distinct neighborhoods.
Speculative homes are in various stages of progress throughout Cedar Creek, and home sites are also available for custom-built homes. In The Reserve at Shadow Lake, which features wooded lake, valley and golf views, home sites are priced from $165,000 to $495,000 and homes range from $1.25 million to more than $5 million.
