Those who want the freedom afforded by a maintenance-provided lifestyle in a Northland community should visit the Villas of North Brook. Here they will find homes built by Sallee Homes, a company with a 25-year history of building quality homes throughout the Kansas City area.
Only eight villa sites remain for single-family homes in the Villas of North Brook, conveniently located on 76th Street, just east of Shoal Creek Parkway, a growing area near numerous services, shopping and entertainment venues.
Sallee Homes’ model at the Villas of North Brook is the Woodland, a ranch plan with two bedrooms, two full bathrooms and a two-car garage. The foyer opens to the great room with a fireplace and looks out to the covered patio. An island separates the kitchen from the great room in this open floor plan that also includes a dining area, all with hardwood floors. The kitchen features custom cabinets, granite counter tops and a large walk-in pantry.
The master bathroom has both a tub and shower, as well as double vanities, and opens to a large walk-in closet. The secondary bedroom is next to the second bathroom with a combination tub and shower. Both bathrooms have tile floors.

This home offers 1,405 square feet on the main floor and that living space could be expanded by finishing the full basement.
Prices in the Villas of North Brook start at $219,900. Larry Eckhoff with RE/MAX Innovations, who markets the community, said a variety of financing plans are available.
Tyler Sallee, with Sallee Homes, said the villas they are now building are in response to the desires of today’s homebuyers.
“We are seeing a shift in the market and finding our buyers’ wants and needs to be different than they were just a few years ago,” Sallee said. “Our customers are wanting less maintenance, more efficient floor plans and nicer finishes inside the home. They want to spend less on their new home as we find a large part of the market downsizing from their current living situation.
“Even though the home is smaller, has few bedrooms or finished footage inside, that doesn’t mean quality is any less than a million-dollar home. We feel like we are building every customer’s million-dollar home. It’s about going above and beyond with the superior standards and exceptional service that our customers expect and deserve from us.”
Sallee Homes is a family-owned business that understands the role trust plays in the home building process. It is focused on the details, both large and small, and begins the building process with cutting-edge floor plans combined with unique design elements that dazzle the senses.
Sallee Homes has built its reputation on delivering a quality product, on time, at a reasonable price and by providing unmatched customer service.
Eckhoff said the homes Sallee is building in the Villas of North Brook are ideal for buyers who wish to downsize and live in the Northland. Provided maintenance includes lawn care, including the in-ground sprinkler system and snow removal.
In addition to the eight single-family villa home sites, five home sites remain to accommodate attached homes.
The Villas of North Brook is near the new Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints temple and temple complex.
“It is in a great area that is expanding with residential growth, services and retail shops,” Eckhoff said. “It is about a mile and a half from all the major shopping areas in Liberty and less than a mile from newer schools in the Liberty School District that children will attend.”
Although the Villas of North Brook is in the Liberty School District, it has a Kansas City address.
