2015 marks the tenth anniversary of the Dream Home program in Kansas City. The St. Jude Dream Home Giveaway has become one of the largest single-event fundraisers for St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital nationwide. To date, the program has raised more than $288 million for St. Jude. Families never receive a bill from St. Jude for treatment, travel, housing and food, because all a family should worry about is helping their child live. St. Jude freely shares the breakthroughs it makes, and every child saved at St. Jude means doctors and scientists worldwide can use that knowledge to save thousands more children.
This is the second year Summit has built a Dream Home in Chapman Farms. The community offers homeowners exclusive access to acres of serene common areas and a multitude of recreational opportunities. At the center of the community is a 30-acre stocked lake that is ideal for fishing or kayaking. The lake is bordered by a one-mile fitness trail that features built-in fitness stations along the walking path.
Three family-friendly neighborhoods surround the lake: Lakeside on the west, The Shores on the east side and Greenbriar to the south. In addition to the lake, fitness trail and pool, homeowners in all three neighborhoods enjoy access to a lakeside community park area with a playground and well-manicured grounds.
The community is just minutes from the hiking and boating amenities of Blue Springs Lake, Fleming Park and Lake Jacomo, and is also less than 20 minutes from three area golf courses.
Extensive shopping, dining and entertainment options are available just a few miles away at both the Summit Woods Shopping Center on Chipman Road and at Independence Center on 39th Street, with everyday services such as grocery stores and banks located even closer.
Chapman Farms is within the award-winning Lee’s Summit R-7 school district and is also near Summit Christian Academy and Plaza Heights Christian Academy.
Summit recently opened a brand new model home and community information center next door to the Dream Home. The two-story Bristol Ridge II model has 3,030 square feet with five bedrooms, four bathrooms and a three-car garage.
The main floor features a spacious mudroom off the garage entry with built-in storage and convenient access to the kitchen and oversized pantry. A full bath on the main level is next to a flex room with built-in window bench that is perfect for an office space or additional bedroom. The open breakfast area and great room feature six large windows overlooking a deck and a spectacular view of the lake.
The upper level has a built-in bookshelf in the hallway connecting three bedrooms and two bathrooms in addition to the master suite. The master suite includes a bedroom, sitting room with fireplace and a master bath with two walk-in closets, a bathtub and custom-tiled walk-in shower with bench.
Two move-in ready homes are available in the Shores: a 11/2-story lakefront Glenwood with 3,038 square feet, four bedrooms, four bathrooms and three-car garage priced at $479,950, and a two-story Bristol Ridge with 2,870 square feet, five bedrooms, four bathrooms and three-car garage priced at $391,000.
Another move-in ready ranch Sheffield is available across the lake in Lakeside with 1,773 square feet, three bedrooms, two bathrooms and three-car garage priced at $300,000.
