The new school year is in full swing, fall is almost here and this busy time of year also brings with it some exciting opportunities to move to Cedar Creek.

The community’s gently rolling, generously treed terrain will soon explode in an incredible display of fall color. And as the perfect antidote to stressful school and work schedules, an extensive array of amenities awaits to encourage rest, relaxation and family time. Spend a few hours in one of two swimming pools, enjoy a sunset stroll around the 65-acre Shadow Lake or make the most of a membership at the award-winning, 18-hole Shadow Glen Golf Club. Homeowners also have access to four lighted tennis courts, jogging and walking trails, the Swim & Racquet Club and an indoor gymnasium that’s equipped for basketball, volleyball, aerobics and a performance stage.

One of the things that homeowners love most about Cedar Creek is the variety. More than a dozen neighborhoods each offer distinct architectural styles and price points, resulting in an incredible array of purchasing options. From speculative homes that can accommodate a specific move-in timeline to custom-built homes that reflect the preferences and wish lists of individual buyers, Cedar Creek is a go-to destination for homeowners who want abundant choices.

Three new neighborhoods have added to the community’s already extensive selection of homes, not to mention an enviable selection of homesites that take full advantage of Cedar Creek’s picturesque surroundings.

“Cedar Creek has every kind of custom home setting available,” said Don Julian of Don Julian Builders, who has built in Cedar Creek since the community’s early days. “All the things buyers ask for are there.”

Valley Ridge is quickly attracting the attention of prospective homeowners interested in the neighborhood’s prime location. Residents are near Cedar Creek Elementary School, Olathe City Park and an area swimming pool. Factor in Cedar Creek’s extensive amenities package, and it’s no wonder that prospective buyers are eager to immerse themselves in all that Cedar Creek has to offer.

As high demand drives traffic to Valley Ridge, a steady pace of building activity continues throughout the neighborhood. New Mark Homes, Roeser Homes, James Engle Custom Homes, C&M Builders and Gabriel Homes are the featured builders in Valley Ridge, and James Engle Custom Homes, Roeser Homes and New Mark Homes currently have a mix of 1½-story, reverse 1½-story and two-story speculative homes underway with completion scheduled for later this year. The building team is also starting a new model row, which will debut in spring 2018.

Prospective homeowners can select from a wide variety of appealing floor plans that are further enhanced by spectacular homesites that take full advantage of the semi-wooded terrain and surrounding scenery. Home prices start in the mid-$400,000s, and more than 30 homesites are currently available for prospective buyers eager to take advantage of this exciting new opportunity.

Those who covet golf course living along Cedar Creek’s acclaimed Shadow Glen Golf Club should act quickly. The Ridge at Shadow Glen offers the last remaining golf course homesites in Cedar Creek.

“There are 13 homesites that back to Shadow Glen Golf Club, and these are the last golf course lots available at Cedar Creek,” said Austin Roeser of Roeser Homes, one of several builders in The Ridge at Shadow Glen. “Add the maintenance-provided villas, and this is a neighborhood that will be highly sought-after.”

Homes in The Ridge at Shadow Glen range from the mid-$500,000s to more than $900,000. Several Cedar Creek builders have or will soon have speculative homes underway, including Roeser Homes, Tabernacle Homes, Prairie Homes, Julian Builders and Starr Homes, which means prospective buyers can choose from a wide array of thoughtfully designed floor plans enhanced with top-quality features and finishes.

Additionally, The Ridge at Shadow Glen offers residents the convenience of maintenance-provided living, giving them more time to enjoy the extensive amenities and recreation that Cedar Creek has to offer.

Last (but certainly not least), Hidden Lake Estates offers enviable wooded views near the community’s swim and racquet facility. Several speculative homes are underway from C&M Builders, Todd Hill Homes, Julian Builders, Starr Homes and Roeser Homes. Availability ranges from immediate to 150 days out, with prices ranging from the upper $700,000s to more than $1 million.

If building your dream home is at the top of your wish list, now’s the best time to bring those plans to life. Hidden Lake Estates offers walkout, daylight and level homesites thoughtfully interspersed with wooded areas, with homes priced from the $600,000s. The neighborhood is so picturesque, in fact, that it caught the eye of Roeser, who’s currently building his personal home in the neighborhood — along with two custom-built homes and a new speculative home.

“I build all over the Kansas City metro area, which means I have the flexibility to build my home where I want,” he said. “I choose Cedar Creek.”

And for prospective buyers eager to accommodate a faster move-in timeline, several speculative homes are available for immediate occupancy. The Crossings at Southglen, a popular destination for families thanks to close proximity to Cedar Creek Elementary School, offers three immediately available homes: two four-bedroom, 3½-bathroom two-story Wakefield floor plans from Rodrock Homes and a four-bedroom, three-bathroom two-story Chloe floor plan from Roeser Homes. Prices range from the low to mid-$400,000s.

In the breathtaking Hidden Lake Estates, a picturesque enclave that overlooks Shadow Lake, two homes are available for immediate occupancy, both from C&M Builders: a three-bedroom, 2½-bathroom reverse 1½-story Taylor National floor plan and a four-bedroom, 4½-bathroom reverse 1½-story Pinebrook National floor plan.

In addition to nearby Cedar Creek Elementary School, Cedar Creek students also attend Mission Trail Junior High School and the brand-new Olathe West High School, which opened to widespread acclaim just weeks ago. The community is also within close proximity to St. James Academy Catholic High School.
