There’s no better way to spend Father’s Day than exploring the resort-style surroundings of Cedar Creek. Imagine starting the weekend with a round of golf at the award-winning Shadow Glen Golf Club, then spending the afternoon with a leisurely stroll or picnic around the rippling waters of Shadow Lake or lounging at one of Cedar Creek’s neighborhood swimming pools. The best part? No luggage or airfare required — just the key to your dream home.
Now’s the ideal time to find that dream home, thanks to a number of speculative homes that are in various stages of progress throughout several of Cedar Creek’s architecturally diverse neighborhoods. Consider, for example, The Crossings at Southglen, Cedar Creek’s newest neighborhood. With a location that’s across the street from Olathe schools and a short stroll away from one of Cedar Creek’s community swimming pools, The Crossings is an ideal choice for families looking to take advantage of all that Cedar Creek has to offer.
In The Crossings, several furnished model homes are available to view from Rodrock Homes, Meridian Homes, James Engle Custom Homes and Roeser Homes. Speculative homes are also under construction throughout The Crossings to meet a variety of move-in timelines, with prices ranging from $391,000 to $438,000.
A number of speculative homes are also available elsewhere throughout Cedar Creek, including the Woods of Southglen, which features plans by Tabernacle Homes, KC Building Co., Don Julian Builders and Roeser Homes with prices from the mid-$400,000s to more than $600,000.
Additionally, a new Don Julian Builders home is available for immediate occupancy. The two-story Windsor, priced at $464,900, offers a spacious four-bedroom, 31/2-bathroom layout that includes a first-floor study and an open kitchen, living room and dining room that’s an ideal area for entertaining. An attached covered patio extends the living space into Cedar Creek’s lush surroundings and offers prime views of the neighborhood’s green space.
KC Building Co. has a brand-new home that’s available for immediate occupancy and priced at $629,950. The stately home is on a quiet cul-de-sac and perched atop a ridge that offers incredible southern vistas. A spacious, kid-friendly yard and plenty of mature trees add to the picturesque surroundings. Inside, the home includes separate his-and-hers offices, an oversized kitchen hearth room with fireplace, box-beam ceiling, island and walk-in pantry, a luxurious master suite with a sitting alcove, fireplace and martini deck and several kids’ rooms and closets, one of which is a unique cave that’s the perfect spot for a kids-only retreat.
In luxurious North Shore Estates, which offers roximity to the 65-acre Shadow Lake (not to mention stunning views), Don Julian Builders has a four-bedroom, 11/2-story custom floor plan with a three-car side-entry garage priced at $859,900.
In Shadow Highlands, Roeser Homes is working on a spacious four-bedroom, 31/2-bathroom Carter floor plan that offers a generous 3,204 square feet of living space and is priced at $579,175.
And in Retreat of Hidden Lake, Keystone Builders is within 90 days of completing a luxurious five-bedroom, 31/2-bathroom, 11/2-story home priced at $849,500.
Prospective homeowners can also work with a member of Cedar Creek’s renowned building team to create a custom-built home on available home sites throughout the community.
In addition to Shadow Lake and Shadow Glen Golf Club, homeowners enjoy a free-form swimming pool, four lighted tennis courts, a second swimming pool in the Southglen neighborhood, jogging and walking trails, the Swim & Racquet Club and an indoor gymnasium that’s equipped for basketball, volleyball, aerobics and a performance stage, the perfect place to escape when the weather is being less than cooperative.
“We can’t imagine living outside of Cedar Creek,” said Cedar Creek resident Rhonda Heatwole. “It’s a great place to call home.”
