Situated just off Highway 152 with quick and easy access to I-35 and I-435, and only a short drive to Zona Rosa, Kansas City International Airport, the Crossroads Art and Power and Light Districts, The Country Club Plaza, and Kauffman Stadium, Shoal Creek Valley is a centrally located Kansas City gem.
As a 1,900-acre master-planned, mixed-use residential and retail development tailored to the best of Kansas City living, Shoal Creek Valley links the values of the past with modern amenities and technology. One of the things that sets it apart from similar developments is that it is currently the only one possessing the Master Planned Community MPC zoning designation through Kansas City, which requires a minimum of 1,500 acres of space and all development plans have to be submitted upfront and allow for variation of building setbacks and streetscapes.
Within it, prospective buyers will find eight distinctive neighborhoods, each offering a wide array of floor plan and lot options built by some of the Kansas City area’s most reputable homebuilders. These include Cardinal Crest Homes, Distinctive Homes by J & K, The Brookeview Group LLC, Prairie Homes, Starr Homes, Freeman Custom Homes, John Shilt Homes, Tim Cunningham Homes, McFarland Custom Builders, Homes By Chris, and Rock Wood Builders, aka Prairie View.
“One of our builders recently paid us a great compliment,” said Tom Johnson, who markets the property with Susan Renschler of Keller Williams North. “He said that in addition to the uniqueness of the homes, the quality far surpasses that found in other neighborhoods, which is why several builders, including he and his business partner, have chosen to build their personal homes here.”

“Shoal Creek Valley is not a community with cookie-cutter houses perfectly lined up along a busy street,” said Renschler.
Residents at Shoal Creek Valley enjoy a wealth of community amenities.
The Gate House features plush grounds, meandering garden pathways, media and banquet rooms, a fully equipped kitchen, patios, a large swimming pool, waterfall, hot tub and barbecue pavilion.
The chalet-style Park House features large open interior spaces, a fireplace and comfortable seating, and a large, outdoor water park with a lazy river, two large swimming pools, two waterslides, splash plaza, toddler pool, tanning patios, picnic pavilions and changing rooms.
“The amenities here are unparalleled,” Johnson said, “and are attractive to buyers with small children, to empty-nesters and retirees spending a great deal of time with family and grandchildren.”
Lifestyle amenities are numerous as well. “Prospective buyers will find a healthcare center, gym, grocery store, restaurants, and other retail businesses in close proximity, which is one of the most desirable aspects for our residents,” Renschler said.
Although Shoal Creek has a Kansas City address, its residents are within the highly-rated Liberty School District, and Liberty Oaks Elementary is situated within the community.
Shoal Creek Golf Course is next door, and historic Liberty Square, The Shoppes at Shoal Creek and The Plaza at Shoal Creek are within walking distance.
“The neighborhoods at Shoal Creek Valley are sought after as the savvy buyer understands the breadth of what we offer here, coupled with the importance of location, location, location,” Johnson said.
