As we think of relaxing this holiday weekend the dreaded “to-do” list appears on the refrigerator: mow and trim the lawn, clean out gutters, prune roses, apply grub control to lawn, fix irrigation leak. Suddenly you realize the word “relaxing” is nowhere to be found in the dictionary this holiday weekend.
Unless, of course, you are a resident of Lime Stone Road townhomes. As a resident of one of its maintenance-provided units, you will have time to shop, play golf and barbeque this weekend because as an owner you never have to take time out of your life to paint your home, repair the roof, fix/clean gutters, mow, mulch, trim, fertilize or even remove snow from your sidewalks and driveways.
Since its opening, the community has welcomed more than 100 residents and will be welcoming more in the upcoming months. Yes, they are selling that fast, according to Chris Powell, who markets the townhomes for Better Homes and Gardens Real Estate Kansas City Homes. We have very few lots left to choose from but those that are left still offer what every townhome buyer is looking for in a lot and location.
The community is part of the nationally recognized community located in Parkville. Its rolling terrain, breathtaking views, natural habitat, award-winning Park Hill School District and, of course, its Tom Watson Signature Golf course are just a few reasons why The National stands apart from all other developments, the marketing team said.
Never miss a local story.
Once you arrive you can choose from several floor plans. Along with the numerous floor plans offered with our traditional product you can also choose from a new concept in maintenance provided. We have a limited offering of stand-alone maintenance-provided townhomes. These townhomes have no common walls and will offer an optional three-car garage. Our current inventory offers walkout and daylight lower levels.
As with our existing townhome product, the stand-alone product will offer an open feeling as you enter the front door with high ceilings, large expanse of windows, efficient living spaces with the kitchen, great room and master suite on one level. They will carry our standard finishes featuring custom cabinetry, granite countertops, hardwood floors and GE appliance packages.
And the location? Well, it is second to none. Convenient to anything a resident could desire. Less than 5 minutes away you can shop for all your basic necessities. Parkville Commons, a 250,000-square-foot retail center is anchored by a Price Chopper grocery store. In addition to Price Chopper you can pick up dry cleaning at Pride Cleaners, find your everyday needs at Walgreen’s and dine at Nick and Jake’s, Rusty Horse Tavern, Jimmy John’s, Sakae Sushi and Pizza Hut. It is also home to the metropolitan area’s most active and vibrant health and wellness center, the Platte County Community Center/YMCA.
If you are active and the indoor YMCA does not tickle your fancy, you have several other outdoor options. You can walk/run along the extensive trail system right outside your front door or visit English Landing Park where you may walk/run along-side the Missouri River or become one with nature while walking/running in Parkville’s very own Nature Sanctuary.
