Stroll along the rippling waters of Shadow Lake. Meet friends for a round of golf at the award-winning Shadow Glen Golf Club. Enjoy an afternoon swim, a rousing game of tennis or a jog through gently rolling, picturesque terrain. Sound like a dream vacation? Welcome to Cedar Creek, the next place you could call home.

The sprawling, master-planned community encompasses 17 architecturally diverse neighborhoods, each of which offers an array of floor plans at a variety of price points. Aside from the stunning homes created by some of Kansas City’s most renowned builders, Cedar Creek also offers a resort-style amenities package designed to offer residents a number of recreational options for year-round enjoyment.

In addition to Shadow Lake and Shadow Glen Golf Club, 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, the perfect place to escape when the weather is being less than cooperative.

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 a number of speculative homes that are under construction in various stages in several Cedar Creek neighborhoods.

In Cedar Creek’s newest neighborhood, The Crossings at Southglen, builders Rodrock Homes, Meridian Homes, James Engle Custom Homes, Roeser Homes and Tabernacle Homes offer six furnished model homes to view, as well as several spec homes that are under construction. Prices range from $391,000 to $438,000.

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,” said Cedar Creek resident Rhonda Heatwole. “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 also near St. James Academy, a Catholic high school.
