Enveloped by a beautiful pastoral setting, the new residential community of Leabrooke Town Manor off Kenneth Road and 148th Street is one of Leawood’s most desirable maintenance-provided neighborhoods. The Home Builders Association of Greater Kansas City agrees, recently awarding Tour No. 230 on The Fall Parade of Homes as a 2015 Pick of the Parade award winner.
“The community has attracted a wide array of prospective homebuyers from single professionals to families with young children, empty-nesters, and retirees desiring a maintenance-provided lifestyle,” said Patty Hummel, who markets the community for ReeceNichols. “Sales have been brisk and there are only six homes remaining in the first section of Phase One.”
Prices in this luxurious and peaceful community range from $329,000 to $359,000 and prospective buyers are encouraged to take advantage of the recent $10,000 price reduction on six feature homes. In addition, these buyers will enjoy a $3,000 decorating allowance, and payment of the regular monthly and annual Leabrooke Master HOA dues, by the developer, for one year with each signed contract on these six featured homes through Dec. 31, 2015.
The monthly homeowners dues include fire and property liability insurance covering the home, fixtures and equipment such as the HVAC; resident water and sewer; repair and replacement of roof and gutters; mowing, edging, trimming, fertilizing and weeding of lawns; pruning of all trees and bushes; snow removal; and annual start-up, winterization and repair of the lawn sprinkler system.
The annual Leabrooke Master HOA dues include trash pick-up, the swimming pool, Sport Court with tennis and basketball, a stocked fishing pond and the clubhouse with exercise facility.
The reverse floor plan offers the master bedroom and laundry on the main floor, and boasts a spacious lower level which includes two bedrooms, a full bathroom, roomy living area, separate storage rooms and egress, daylight or walkout access.
The 1 1/2-story-plan also offers the master bedroom and laundry on the main floor with an upstairs that includes two bedrooms, a full bathroom, spacious loft and additional closets, with a few also featuring bay windows with window seats. One of the 1 1/2-story plans has an additional bedroom on the main floor which could also be used as an office. All 1 1/2-story homes include a full pre-plumbed basement with daylight or egress windows.
The upscale interior features throughout the Leabrooke Town Manor community include upgraded 3 1/2-inch hardwood oak floors, knotty alder cabinetry, brushed nickel or oil rubbed hardware, crown molding, iron spindles, oak tread and designer carpet on the stairs, upgraded 12- by 24-inch tile in the bathrooms, stone or tile fireplaces, built-in bookcases and beautiful wood treatment on many of the ceilings.
The state-of-the-art kitchens offer granite or quartz counter tops with a generous breakfast bar allowing for a secondary eating area, and a stainless steel appliance package complete with a gas self-cleaning range. All homes feature granite or marble vanity tops in the bathrooms and some include soaker tubs.
Each home is highlighted by a textured stucco and rock exterior, a lush landscaped yard and the buyer’s choice of a private deck or patio. All homes also include an attached two-car garage with 8-foot insulated doors and Lift Master belt-driven openers.
“This is most likely one of the last opportunities for people to buy a new construction residence in Leawood at this price point,” Hummel said. “This is an attractive aspect for our buyers, particularly given that Leawood was recently ranked the fifth best out of 1,268 small cities in the U.S. rated by WalletHub for its ‘2015’s Best & Worst Small Cities in America’ article.”
Leabrooke Town Manor is conveniently located within a few minutes’ drive of numerous grocery stores, major retailers, restaurants, urgent care clinics and many major highways. Residents needing a more urban fix will find unique artistic and entertainment options at nearby Park Place, Town Center Plaza and Town Center Crossing, and Prairie Fire.
What’s more, Leabrooke Town Manor is adjacent to beautiful Ironwoods Park encompassing a nature center, outdoor amphitheater, physical fitness challenge course, fishing and cabins for group overnights.
“We fully expect these six featured homes to sell fast,” said Hummel, “We encourage prospective buyers to hurry to enjoy these significant savings and come home for the holidays!”
