Finding a home in a lush, treed location perched atop rolling hills typically requires a willingness to be in a somewhat rural area where new homes blend seamlessly with existing greenspace and terrain. Oakwood Forest is the exception, offering homeowners a compelling combination of heavily treed lots and panoramic hilltop views within minutes of downtown Kansas City, Briarcliff, Kansas City International Airport and much more.
Located just across the river, Oakwood Forest is a secluded haven in the midst of a thriving area that includes services, dining and entertainment. Prospective homeowners can choose from an enviable selection of 20 homesites, most of which are large, wooded walkout lots with dense trees throughout. Prices range from the $50,000s to the $70,000s, giving homeowners an unmatched value without sacrificing size or surroundings.
The lush, wooded homesites are the ideal backdrop for Oakwood Forest’s homes, a diverse selection of two-story, 1½-story, reverse 1½-story and ranch floor plans from several of Kansas City’s top builders with prices starting in the $300,000s. Oakwood Forest homeowners have no shortage of selection as they build their custom dream home in a thoughtful layout that takes full advantage of the large homesites and picturesque terrain.
Once settled in their home, residents are encouraged to immerse themselves in the Oakwood Forest lifestyle with amenities that include a large swimming pool, expansive sun deck, barbecue grills, a children’s pool, cabana, playground and picnic tables. From taking a leisurely summer swim to gathering for a late fall barbecue to enjoy the vibrant foliage, Oakwood Forest homeowners have no shortage of opportunities to make the most of life within the neighborhood.

In a testament to Oakwood Forest’s appeal and quality, the community is marketed by the Edie Waters Team with Keller Williams, the number one real estate team in the Northland. With a successful real estate track record that spans more than two decades, Edie’s name has become synonymous with the most exemplary homes the area has to offer, an impressive portfolio of listings that now includes Oakwood Forest.
Oakwood Forest currently offers three variations of Frisbie-Carter Custom Homes’ Seville reverse 1½- story, plan.

"As these homes are approaching completion, we are excited to start bringing buyers back through for a second showing," commented Edie Waters. "Although buyers have a difficult time envisioning the completed home, we are confident they will fall in love once seeing the finished product."
In addition to Frisbie-Carter’s selections, Gabriel Homes is beginning to dig foundations for three additional spec homes. Their designs entail two, reverse-1½-story, four-bedroom, three-bathroom Richmond plans, and their ever-popular Makenna, a two-story plan, featuring four bedrooms, 3½ bathrooms, and main level office. All three of these plans will feature their three-car designs.
