A lush, resort-style setting complemented by an enviably extensive amenities package has long drawn homeowners to Cedar Creek, where they agree that life is like a daily vacation. Equally enticing is the array of stately homes throughout Cedar Creek’s numerous architecturally distinct neighborhoods, the work of a renowned building team that takes pride in making the home building experience truly exceptional.
The newest addition to Cedar Creek’s neighborhood portfolio, The Crossings at Southglen, has quickly garnered attention thanks to a compelling combination of quality-built homes, appealing price points and a prime location that’s within a short walk of Cedar Creek Elementary School.
The second phase of home sites is now open for reservations, giving prospective homeowners a selection of daylight, walkout and flat locations. And one of Cedar Creek’s newer builders, Meridian Homes, is making a similar impression thanks to a commitment to creating what owner/builder Jerry Braklow described as “quality, energy-efficient homes that exemplify quality craftsmanship through design and functionality.”
Added Braklow, “We also believe in installing only the best products available in the building industry. No corners will be cut — ever — when building our homes.”
Meridian Homes has several homes underway in The Crossings, including:
▪ 11194 S. Hastings St., a five-bedroom Avalon II priced at $437,950.
▪ 11189 S. Hastings St., a five-bedroom Avalon II priced at $429,950.
Additionally, the Meridian Homes team has built one of the model homes in The Crossings, a five-bedroom Avalon II floor plan that offers 3,004 square feet of living space in a two-story layout. Located at 11122 S. Hastings St., the home includes an open kitchen, breakfast and great room, a formal dining room with hardwood floors and a spacious master suite with private deck and an attached laundry room.
A second-floor loft, covered deck, oversized bedrooms and an ideal location within walking distance to the neighborhood swimming pool make this beautiful home even more coveted. Prospective homeowners are invited to tour the home and see Meridian Homes’ exemplary craftsmanship firsthand.
Elsewhere in Cedar Creek, a number of speculative homes are in varying stages of completion in several neighborhoods, including the Woods of Southglen, Shadow Highlands and the luxurious North Shore Estates. Prospective homeowners are also welcome to work with one of Cedar Creek’s builders to create a custom home.
Although the quality-built homes are undoubtedly the center of attention at Cedar Creek, the community’s impressive array of amenities is equally enticing. The amenities package includes swimming pools, tennis courts, a lake, a golf course, a fully equipped community center and more, all of which help homeowners feel like they’re on a permanent vacation.
Cedar Creek homeowners Matt and Rachelle Hirsch and their family have plans to use the amenities even more frequently next year. Between moving into the community and preparing for a family wedding earlier this fall, the Hirsches kept a busy schedule yet still found time to play tennis and go on frequent walks throughout Cedar Creek, an ideal way to get to know other residents and soak up Cedar Creek’s friendly atmosphere.
“Everybody waves,” Matt said. “It’s not like people are living here because they were transferred for a job and they’re going to move in a couple of years. For people in Cedar Creek, this is home — and we plan on staying here for a long time.”
Cedar Creek is served by the Olathe School District, including Olathe Northwest High School, Mission Trail Junior High School and Cedar Creek Elementary School. The community is also near St. James Academy, a Catholic high school.
Directions: Kansas 10 to Cedar Creek Parkway, south to community entrance.
