At Canyon Creek, a premier metropolitan community developed by Prime Development Land Company, word of mouth has proven to be a powerful, organic marketing tool. The community has attracted scores of homebuyers looking for homes of extraordinary design, function and beauty.
“People are really drawn to these master-planned neighborhoods,” said Debbie Sinclair, who markets the community with MaraDona Wood, “because they are so thoughtfully designed and planned with an eye for natural beauty, and highlighted by acres of beautiful, rolling and wooded terrain in and around the community.”
Sales have been at such a brisk pace since the community first opened that there are only a few lots left. With lot prices ranging between $83,950 and $180,000 and homes priced from the low $400,000s to over $800,000 they are expected to sell fast.
“Now is the time to come out and make a lot or spec home selection,” Wood said. “We have abundant inventory at various stages of construction from immediate occupancy, to ready within 30, 60, and 90 days, providing buyers plenty of time to choose the interior features and décor that suits their unique desires and lifestyle.”
Located just north of Kansas 10 and Cedar Creek Parkway in Lenexa, Canyon Creek offers a variety of 1-1/2-story, reverse 1-1/2-story, and two-story floor plans in a combination of walkout, daylight, and level options set on a multitude of desirable homesites, including treed, lakefront, greenbelt, walkout and daylight lots. Over a third are adjacent to city parkland or large private common areas, and all homes are situated on curving streets and private cul-de-sacs carefully designed to respect the contours of the land and oriented to provide views of open space.
Community builders include James Engle Custom Homes, JFE Construction, Summit Homes, C&M Builders, LDH Construction, Hilmann Home Building, Gabriel Homes, Don Julian Builders, McQueen Homes and Roeser Homes. Buyers may also choose their own builder for a custom-build job with developer approval.
The model homes are also for sale, and four of the original nine have already been sold. The model at 9818 Hastings St., built by Roeser Homes, was honored as an American Dream Award Gold Winner during this past Spring’s Parade of Homes.
“The caliber of builders we have here really speaks volumes about what we have to offer,” Wood said. “That is why we have attracted such a wide demographic of homebuyers from young professionals to families with school-age children, to empty-nesters, retirees, and everything in between.” A brand new, state-of-the-art elementary school opening within the community in time for the Fall 2019 school year is another attractive factor for families.
Homebuyers are also drawn here for the natural beauty and amenities the community has to offer, including the community’s pools, cabanas, playgrounds, basketball courts, and large, open recreational sports fields, and paved walking and biking trails along the forested shoreline of Mize Park Lake next to Canyon Creek.
Residents are within a stone’s throw of quick and easy access to K-7, K-10 and other highways that can take them to a variety of recreational opportunities at nearby parks, and shopping, dining and entertainment at the nearby Lenexa City Center.
“We are fortunate that the combination of the reputation of our stellar builders, and word-of-mouth testimonials from homeowners, have excited people about making their lot reservations as soon as possible,” Sinclair said. “So, we really encourage anyone to come and see Canyon Creek because these remaining homes in our final phase will go fast.”
