Bluestem continues to hum with activity and homeowners intrigued by Bluestem’s prime Overland Park location, stately homes and lush surroundings have limited opportunities to purchase in the community. Bluestem’s final phase of 40 home sites is now open, which means now is the last chance to buy a new home in the thoughtfully designed community.
Located on the southeast corner of 151st Street and Quivira Road in Overland Park, Bluestem is situated on 150 acres of green space and native prairie, creating a scenic community that provides a picturesque backdrop for Bluestem’s eye-catching homes, the marketing team said.
Remaining home sites, which are available for reservation or purchase, are of premium quality and all back to green space. Several home sites also offer lake views, giving homeowners a chance to experience all of the natural beauty that Bluestem has to offer.
Drive into Bluestem and this commitment to preserving the area’s scenic terrain is immediately apparent. An elegant entrance and heavily treed boulevard greets residents and guests while rolling hills and treed surroundings enhance 60 acres of natural open space throughout Bluestem, resulting in a rustic charm that extends into a welcoming setting, according to Dennis Patterson, community manager for Prime Development. Yet Bluestem’s prime Overland Park location reflects the modern convenience available thanks to proximity to shops, entertainment, services and award-winning Blue Valley schools.
Never miss a local story.
Construction activity is buzzing at Bluestem, which means prospective homebuyers can select from a wide variety of speculative homes by several of Kansas City’s renowned builders including James Engle Custom Homes, Roeser Homes LLC, Bickimer Homes, Lambie Custom Homes and LDH Construction. Bluestem residents are also invited to bring in an outside builder to create a custom home, if they prefer. Either way, the Bluestem team is dedicated to making each homeowner’s dream home a reality.
Homes in Bluestem are priced from the $400,000s. Home sites in the community’s final phase are priced from $89,950, a price point that the marketing team agreed is “a wonderful value” for the southern Johnson County area.
Bluestem homeowners also have access to an extensive amenities package that’s ideal for those seeking an active lifestyle. A sizable lake serves as one of Bluestem’s focal points and more than 1.5 miles of trails wind throughout Bluestem, offering views of wildlife and green space all along the way. Construction is complete on the community’s swimming pool and cabana complex that includes a full-size pool, children’s pool, sport court and play area.
The marketing team continues to hear rave reviews about the community, which makes these final home sites even more coveted. The community has proved so appealing, in fact, that several real estate agents and builders have chosen to build their personal homes within Bluestem, Patterson said.
With today’s emphasis on dense, mixed-use developments, communities like Bluestem are rare, he added.
A commitment to maintaining open spaces and neighborhood amenities, as found within Bluestem, is not only an environmental benefit but also provides space to breathe, reflect and appreciate nature as well as allow for chance meetings with neighbors and friends. Maintaining this sort of commitment to the area’s natural features is a primary component of Prime Development’s philosophy, Patterson said.
When making the decision to purchase within Bluestem, prospective homeowners can feel secure that the community is part of the Prime Development family, an Overland Park-based real estate company that prides itself on a long-running, financially secure history within the local real estate market.
Prime Development’s skilled and experienced team brings a wealth of knowledge to the table, as well as a sense of pride in a continuing commitment to top-selling neighborhoods that are more than cookie-cutter subdivisions. Instead, prospective homeowners will find thoughtful residential enclaves that blend natural terrain, including restored prairie and wetland areas, with modern conveniences to create a community that’s both environmentally respectful and appealing to a variety of residents.
Bluestem is served by the award-winning Blue Valley School District. Prospective homeowners are encouraged to visit the community and experience the green, open surroundings that make Bluestem a truly special place to call home, Patterson said. On-site tours can be made by appointment or a comprehensive list of lot information is available on-line, including interactive plat maps and model plans.
