Sales have been at a brisk pace and only six lots remain for custom build jobs at Melrose Reserve. Located at the corner of 133rd and Melrose Lane in Overland Park, just west of 69 Highway off 135th St. and Switzer, this hidden residential oasis offers private, luxury villa community living in a boutique neighborhood designed to provide a carefree lifestyle.

“So many people are looking for a more simplified lifestyle, and there’s a shortage of wonderful, yet affordable maintenance-provided living communities located in the heart of Overland Park,” said Teresa Acklin, marketing agent for Prime Development Land Company. “That is one of the reasons we have attracted so many buyers who love the fact that we are not only an intimate community, but we are close to all that the ‘big city’ has to offer.”

When completed, Melrose Reserve will encompass only 50 freestanding singe family maintenance-provided villas. For prospective buyers looking to move quickly, eight of the 11 spec homes currently available are move-in ready or just 30 days from completion.

Priced from the low $500,000s to the $700,000s, these luxury villas are built by some of the Kansas City area’s most well-known and respected homebuilders including Prairie Homes, LDH Construction, Wynne Homes, RW Homes and KC-Calute Homes. The community is also open to outside builders with developer approval.

Melrose Reserve offers a wide range of architectural diversity and homes that vary from 2,900 to 3,400 square feet featuring 3 to 4 bedrooms, main level master bedrooms, flex spaces, spacious kitchens, open floor plans and more. All exteriors will include four-sided stucco and three-car garages.

Inside, prospective buyers will find inviting entryways, soaring ceilings, beautiful crown molding, hardwood flooring, upgraded carpet, and lots of light throughout. Those who enjoy cooking will love the beautiful granite countertops, large islands, custom cabinets, and spacious walk-in pantries in the kitchens. Granite countertops can also be found in the bathrooms, as well as expansive closets and cabinet space, and all of the villas are integrated with an array of energy-efficient amenities that help keep home operating costs low.

Homeowner’s association dues cover lawn care, snow removal, trash and recycling, making it a true lock-and-leave lifestyle when traveling for work or vacationing.

According to Acklin, Melrose Reserve is very attractive to buyers who desire the same upscale amenities found in a new custom home, including lush oasis landscaping, but without all the yard work.

“A lot of our buyers have lived in the area for years and owned a large home,” Acklin said, “but they are ready to downsize into a smaller, new home with less maintenance requirements, without sacrificing the luxury features to which they have become accustomed. Melrose Reserve satisfies those needs and desires in a myriad of ways.”

Melrose Reserve residents are within a stone’s throw of a variety of recreational opportunities including nearby parks, golf courses, convenient grocery and specialty stores, professional offices, fitness, and numerous dining and entertainment venues. Among them are Town Center Plaza, Town Center Crossing, and a variety of entertainment at Prairie Fire.

The community is also within a convenient commute to some of the area’s largest employers, the Country Club Plaza, the Crossroads Art District, Downtown Kansas City and KCI airport.

For residents with children, area schools include Cottonwood Point Elementary, Oxford Middle School, Blue Valley Northwest High School and St. Thomas Aquinas High School.

“If you’re looking for a boutique, luxury, maintenance-provided villa community to call home, don’t wait and lose out on this incredible opportunity,” said Acklin. “Melrose Reserve truly has a great deal to offer.”
