Prospective homebuyers looking to make the move west, but apprehensive about leaving the city behind, worry not. Being a part of Canyon Creek has many highly sought-after benefits.
The marketing team said Canyon Creek has distinguished itself as the premier new-home community in Lenexa, which itself received national recognition last year when Business Week magazine named the city as the “Best Place to Raise Kids” in the state of Kansas. Located just off Kansas 10 highway, one exit west of Kansas 7, Canyon Creek provides instantaneous access to major highway networks and proximity to dining, entertainment and recreational opportunities at nearby Lenexa parks.
Canyon Creek is a master-planned residential community comprised of over 400 home sites, thoughtfully planned with an eye for natural beauty. Over 70 acres of adjacent wooded park land create a serene natural environment for the neighborhood.
Paved trails along the forested shoreline of the seven-acre Mize Park Lake next to Canyon Creek are enjoyed daily by resident walkers, joggers, cyclists, fishermen and nature lovers. Some of the Kansas City area’s most beautiful, rolling and wooded terrain is found in and around Canyon Creek.
As housing construction flourishes in this revitalized Lenexa neighborhood, Canyon Creek is assuming a place among the metropolitan area’s most adored communities. With its latest offering, Prime Development provides homebuyers a vibrant lifestyle and a remarkable living environment.
Canyon Creek’s three-acre amenity complex exhibits a high standard for family-oriented recreation. A free-form pool, replete with a sparkling fountain, features a large swimming area with a shallow “reef ledge” at one side that welcomes children and parents alike. There is an expansive deck with ample room for sunbathers, a striking pergola and a handsome Prairie-style cabana building flanked by two covered porches that offer a shady reprieve from the sun.
Other recreational features include a park-grade playground, a basketball court and a large, open play field for recreational soccer, softball, Frisbee and football.
No longer is the quest to find your dream home a lamented chore. Canyon Creek’s model row is lined with five great homes, winners of multiple awards for floor plan and interior design. From Canyon Creek’s builders’ portfolios of dozens of house plans, buyers can choose from many different styles, options and finishes to personalize homes to suit their distinctive needs, styles and tastes.
Canyon Creek’s model home builders, James Engle Custom Homes, Roeser Homes, C & M Builders, Lambie Custom Homes and Summit Custom Homes, are among the largest and best known home builders in the Kansas City area. James Engle Custom Homes and Summit Custom Homes received Grand Awards for their homes on Canyon Creek’s model row in last fall’s Parade of Homes.
Home prices start in the low $400,000s with plans including two-story, 11/2-story and reverse 11/2-story designs. With so many offerings and the opportunity to personalize each home, choices at Canyon Creek become practically limitless. Outside builders are also welcome with developer approval.
“Response to the affordable lot prices and the wide selection of spec homes has been incredible,” said MaraDona Wood, co-marketer with partners Debbie Sinclair and Teresa Acklin. “Prospective homeowners have been eager to take advantage of exceptional opportunities at Canyon Creek that were unavailable only a few months ago. Lot reservations and home sales have continued to increase as more and more homebuyers discover what Canyon Creek has to offer.”
“We reserved five lots in one week,” added Sinclair. “Now is not the time to wait, because this rare opportunity will be gone soon.”
Nestled within the Olathe School District, Canyon Creek resident students attend award-winning Olathe Schools, including Olathe Northwest High, Mission Trails Middle and Cedar Creek Elementary Schools. Resident students can also avail themselves of nearby St. James Academy, a parochial high school widely renowned for academic excellence and a superior learning environment.
What could be a better way to put a close to a great summer and start off the new school year, than to move into a new home?
With many pre-sold homes and speculative homes underway, construction at Canyon Creek is thriving. For homebuyers who are in need of early occupancy or want to make the move quick and effortless, several styles of spec homes are available for occupancy within 90 days, some in less than 30 days. Canyon Creek’s on-site agents are available daily to help fulfill your needs.
