Most new-home communities offer some sort of amenities package, but at Cedar Creek, homeowners don’t simply have access to a few recreational options. Instead, they can immerse themselves into a complete resort-style experience that’s as much about companionship and community as it is about activity and enjoyment.
“We have made dear lifetime friends here,” said Rhonda Heatwole, who moved into Cedar Creek with her husband, Brian, in January of 2001. “Everything is so beautiful and user-friendly. My husband and I take long walks around the golf course and lake area. We bring friends here and they love it.”
The sprawling, master-planned community encompasses more than a dozen architecturally diverse neighborhoods, all of which are intertwined with lush, rolling terrain that provides a picturesque backdrop. The sparkling waters of Shadow Lake invite fishing or a lakeside picnic. The award-winning Shadow Glen Golf Club makes the most of Cedar Creek’s natural beauty, providing a challenging yet scenic place to play.
Elsewhere throughout the community, homeowners enjoy a free-form swimming pool, four lighted tennis courts, a second swimming pool in the Southglen neighborhood, jogging and walking trails, the Swim & Racquet Club and an indoor gymnasium that’s equipped for basketball, volleyball, aerobics and a performance stage.
Prospective homeowners interested in experiencing the Cedar Creek lifestyle are encouraged to stop by and explore the community. They’ll also have a chance to see the community’s renowned building team in action as a number of speculative homes are under construction in various stages in several Cedar Creek neighborhoods.
Several homes are available in the Woods of Southglen, including plans by LDH Construction, Tim Hoelting Homes, Roeser Homes, Tabernacle Homes, KC Building Co. and Don Julian Builders. Current speculative home prices range from the upper $400,000s to more than $600,000.
In luxurious North Shore Estates, which offers proximity to the 65-acre Shadow Lake, Don Julian Builders has a four-bedroom, 11/2-story custom floor plan with a three-car side-entry garage priced at $859,900.
And in Shadow Highlands, Roeser Homes is working on a spacious four-bedroom, 31/2-bathroom Carter floor plan that offers a generous 3,204 square feet of living space and is priced at $566,306.
Prospective homeowners can also follow in Matt and Rachelle Hirsch’s footsteps and work with one of Cedar Creek’s celebrated builders (in their case, LDH Construction) to create a custom-built home on a selection of home sites available throughout the community.
“We can’t imagine living outside of Cedar Creek,” Heatwole said. “It’s a great place to call home.”
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 near St. James Academy, a Catholic high school.
