Maintenance free—those words are music to any homeowner’s ears. But many think that maintenance free living comes with a high price tag. It can but there are more midrange neighborhoods popping up that are including snow removal, yard care and trash removal in their coverage through homeowners association fees. Two such neighborhoods, Enclave at Cedar Pointe and the Enclave at Prairie Star, are currently taking reservations though developer and builder Lambie Custom Homes Inc.
Lambie Custom has been building custom homes for 38 years under the leadership of founder Jim Lambie. Lambie Custom Homes are primarily in Southern Johnson County, but they can and have built throughout the Kansas City metropolitan area. With prices ranging from the mid-$300s to $4 million plus, Lambie Custom homes are truly accessible to clients in any price range or stage of life.
Although Lambie Custom offers ranches, maintenance-free villas, 1 ½- stories, reverse ranches and two story options, within each model there is plenty of room for customization. Seldom do they build any one of their designs without making alterations to suit the client’s needs. At Lambie Custom, they enjoy the process of working directly with a client and architect to design and build a completely original house. Working with architects allows Lambie Custom to continue innovating and designing homes that are on the cutting edge of energy efficiency and user friendliness for people from all stages of life.
The Enclave at Cedar Pointe is located at 133rd Street and State Line Road. The exclusive community features two cul-de-sacs and will feature home plans including 1 ½- story, ranch, and reverse 1.5 stories with two bedrooms on the first floor with lower level entertainment areas.
