Tucked amid scenic, rolling terrain in Kansas City’s Northland, the seven neighborhoods of Shoal Creek Valley offer an appealing trifecta of beautiful surroundings, quality-built homes and prime location, making it highly sought after by homeowners searching for their dream home.
Interest in one of those neighborhoods, The Enclave at The Village, is high with four inventory homes being built. These traditional-style homes range in size from 2,300 to 3,000 finished square feet, have three-car garages and such high-end finishes as granite and hardwood flooring. Plans include one ranch and three two-story styles and all are being built by Brookfield Residential.
“I am proud to welcome Brookfield Residential as one of our preferred builders,” said Tom Johnson of Keller Williams North, who markets Shoal Creek Valley. “They bring a creative design and quality crafted home to our community.”
The builder is providing a $5,000 allowance for upgrades for anyone who purchases one of the homes before completion, which is expected later this summer. Buyers may use the allowance to choose interior finishes and colors. These homes have four bedrooms and multiple bathrooms and are on wooded home sites backing to green space.

“Creating community is at the heart of what the company does,” said Scott Davis, operations manager at Brookfield Residential. “It strives to create the best places to call home and has the passion, expertise and the local knowledge to craft homes and neighborhoods that speak to homebuyers at every stage of life.
“We are an innovative land developer and home builder with more than 50 years of experience, focused on creating places to live that are thoughtfully designed and cultivate exceptional life experiences, providing comfort, inclusiveness and a sense of place,” Davis said. “You will discover that our signature attention to style, warmth and details can be found throughout the neighborhoods we build.”
Shoal Creek Valley residents plan many family-oriented events throughout the year. There is a kiddie camp out each summer, movie nights in the community’s park, Easter egg hunts, story time in the adjacent library and fun all year around. Families also enjoy a private community website where they can communicate about events and activities. The Enclave shares the same lush community parks, walking trails, clubhouses and water park pool complex with the rest of the Shoal Creek Valley.
“We have a set of amenities not found anywhere else in the greater Kansas City area, such as parks with picnic tables and pergola pavilion and barbecue, wide sidewalks for easy walkability, as well as exercising and biking trails,” Johnson said.
The icon of Shoal Creek Valley is The Gate House with its plush grounds, meandering garden pathways, media room, banquet room and fully equipped kitchen. It is available to residents for activities, events and meetings. It is also available to residents who simply want to enjoy the patios, large fountain pool, waterfall hot tub and barbecue pavilion.
The chalet-style clubhouse known as The Park House features large open interior spaces, the warmth of a fireplace and comfortable seating just right for a card game or meeting. But its large, outdoor water park is the main attraction on warm, summer days. There is a lazy river, two large swimming pools, two waterslides, splash plaza, toddler pool, water fountains, sun decks, picnic pavilions and changing rooms.
The Shoal Creek Valley master-planned community has grown immeasurably during the past two years, bringing a garden fresh and health food grocery store, new family restaurants, medical facilities promoting healthy living and numerous other establishments to the area. Most are within walking distance of the Shoal Creek Valley communities. Golf enthusiasts will be drawn to the nearby Shoal Creek Valley Golf Course for an enjoyable and challenging 18-hole experience.
Shoal Creek Valley is also conveniently near both Interstate 435 and Interstate 35. Residents can travel to Kauffman Stadium, Power and Light or the Country Club Plaza within 20 minutes, and there is only one stoplight between the community and Kansas City International Airport with an easy 20- to 25-minute drive.
“Any season is the perfect time to call Shoal Creek Valley home,” Johnson said. “The amenities are unparalleled with two clubhouses, walking trails, park with BBQ Pavilion, lush landscaping throughout and community events. We have a wonderful group of homeowners who enjoy what has been created here. However, there are very few opportunities left for new homebuyers to make this community their home.”
Shoal Creek Valley has a Kansas City address, but children attend highly rated Liberty schools with Liberty Oaks Elementary on site.
