Twelve luxury townhomes are being built in downtown Independence, within walking distance of restaurants, shops and entertainment. Construction is well underway on the Market Square Townhomes near Truman Road and Main Street on the site of the former farmer’s market, and buyers could be in their new home for the holidays. The developer describes the new townhomes as “first-class living.”
Designed with a European flair, each unit is slightly different with varying roof lines and offset from each other for privacy. Priced from $250,000 to $320,000, the two story units feature two bedrooms and two full baths, plus a half bath, with the option for an additional bedroom and bath. A dramatic two story entrance flows into an open floorplan perfect for entertaining and full of luxurious finishes such as granite counters, stainless steel appliances, hardwood floors, and tile bathrooms with walk-in showers.
Two large pantries and a large master closet are examples of the thoughtfully added storage spaces. Vaulted ceilings and daylight basements create a light, airy feeling. Beginning at nearly 2,000 square feet, the optional basement finish with bar, bathroom and an extra bedroom can extend the living space to nearly 3,000 square feet.
“This really is one of the nicest projects I’ve seen,” said agent Keith McClain. “I think people will be impressed with the quality and level of detail included.”
Other upscale touches not normally seen in this price range include a gated private entrance, oversized two car detached garage and green space in the back yard.
The maintenance provided units are part of a homes association which maintains the lawn and landscape care, snow removal, trash and exterior insurance for $135 per month.
With roots that date back to the early 1800s, the historic Independence Square is a revitalized district anchored in the center by the Truman Courthouse, and the jumping off point of the Santa Fe, Oregon, and California Trails. Not only a historical site, the Square offers fine dining, bowling, an art gallery and much more, even tours on horse drawn carriages.
A model townhome is open 1-4pm on weekends. One finished spec townhome is complete and for sale, and several other units will be complete within 60 days. Buyers who act quickly may still be able to select the remaining finishes.
