The Estates of Wolf Creek is celebrating spring with two entries that will be featured on the Spring Parade of Homes, which runs April 26 through May 11, as well as an abundance of inventory homes in various stages of completion.
Brent Kendrick, who markets the community for the Scottie Broderick Team of RE/MAX State Line, urges homebuyers to visit Wolf Creek at 191st Street and Ridgeview Road to see what’s been generating excitement and fast-paced sales in this popular Spring Hill community.
“Homes are selling as quickly as they can be built,” Kendrick said. “In fact, we had three closings just last week.”
To keep up with demand, as soon as one home is sold builder and developer Robert Garver begins another to replace it. He also is working on new plans that will be available soon and adding the latest decor to provide even more choices for buyers.
Those who visit during the Spring Parade of Homes will be able to see the workmanship that goes into each home by the two detailed-oriented builders working in the Estates of Wolf Creek.
One of the entries is Garver’s two-story Savannah plan offering about 2,596 square feet of living space that includes four bedrooms, 31/2 bathrooms and a three-car garage.
“This home has a massive covered deck and a walk-in pantry that is the size of most bedrooms,” Kendrick said.
The open main-level design includes a great room, dining room, breakfast room and island kitchen, as well as a convenient storage bench and powder room along the entry from the garage. The home features granite counter tops in the kitchen and all bathrooms, as well as custom cabinets, hardwood floors and iron stair spindles.
The Savannah is priced at $339,950, which Kendrick said is an incredible price for a home this size with all of its features.
The other Parade entry is builder Kelly Dunn’s Dunwood plan, the largest reverse ranch plan offered in the Estates of Wolf Creek and priced at $319,000. This 3,096-square-foot home offers three bedrooms, including the master suite, and two bathrooms on the main level as well as two additional bedrooms and another bathroom on the lower level.
The open design of the main level includes a living room and dining room, as well as a walk-in pantry. A large recreation room and ample storage completes the lower level.
The tandem three-car garage is perfect of those who want extra storage or a place for their boat, Kendrick said. And with Hillsdale Lake just a few minutes away, many Wolf Creek residents are boat owners.
In addition to the two Parade entries, visitors will find an array of inventory homes in various stages of completion, including some homes that are immediately available, in a variety of two-story, ranch and reverse ranch floor plans.
Kendrick said one of the two-story plans, the Landry, features an impressive free-standing stone fireplace separating the great room from the hearth room. The majority of the homes also feature covered decks that expand living spaces outdoors.
The Estates of Wolf Creek encompasses 240 total acres centered around a future 15-acre city park; two five-acre lakes, one existing and ready for fishing and one planned; miles of walking trails; and a swimming pool, cabana and children’s play area that residents are already enjoying.
Another benefit of living in Wolf Creek is the new Wolf Creek Elementary School that opened in fall 2013 within the community on land donated by Garver. Students also are within walking distance of Spring Hill High School, recognized as one of two Kansas Service Learning Leader Schools for integrating curriculum with community service. The Spring Hill schools offer a low student-to-teacher ratio and have received 24 Standard of Excellence citations.

Homebuyers who choose to have a home custom built in Wolf Creek will be pleased to know that if they use preferred lender EverBank, they can take advantage of extended lock-rate options of up to 270 days (nine months) that offer a float-down option one time if interest rates decline.
EverBank also has a Lock and Shop plan, which allows buyers to lock in today’s interest rate and remove the stress of rate fluctuations. The rate is locked for 90 days and also offers a one-time float-down if rates fall.
In addition to fixed-rate mortgages, EverBank offers a variety of adjustable rate mortgages, USDA Rural Development mortgages with zero down payment, first-time homebuyers programs and VA loans available through Fannie Mae, Freddie Mac and FHA.
Because The Estates of Wolf Creek offers such a wide spectrum of floor plans, it has drawn a diversity of residents that includes singles, families, empty-nesters and retirees. The community is near access to U.S. 69 and U.S. 169 highways, allowing residents to quickly reach all parts of the metropolitan area, and is only about 10 minutes south of Olathe.
