If a new home in western Shawnee in the highly sought-after Mill Valley High School attendance area is your dream, Prieb Homes can make it a reality.
Prieb Homes, a third-generation company that today is one of the largest home-building companies in the Kansas City area, has several two-story homes nearing completion in the Estates of Highland Ridge, just northwest of Kansas 7 and Johnson Drive in Shawnee. These homes will be finished just in time to move before school begins.
The spacious homes, priced in the upper $300,000s to mid $400,000s, are perched on treed, walkout sites in the final phase of the Estates of Highland Ridge. They offer four bedrooms on the upper level, as well as a flex room on the main floor that could be a fifth bedroom, walk-in showers with dual shower heads and covered patios or decks.
“These homes have all the features today’s buyers want — walk-in showers, laundry room on the second floor that opens to both the master closet and hallway, and an over-sized island in the kitchen that is a gathering spot for the family or great for entertaining,” said Greg Prieb II, president of Prieb Homes.
The main floor has an open design that flows easily from the entrance to the covered deck. Buyers also will find the latest finishes, including granite counter tops, custom cabinets and hardwood floors.
But don’t expect each of these homes to look the same. “We offer a lot of variety and in fact have different architects who design our homes, so they are all different,” Prieb said.
Although these homes are a generous size, Prieb said many buyers are choosing to finish the lower level and with today’s interest rates, can do so without going over the monthly mortgage budget. Those who buy now and opt for the lower-level finish can be in the home within 60 days.
The Estates of Highland Ridge is in the DeSoto School District and minutes from highway access to whisk residents to anywhere they want to go in the metropolitan area. The community has a pool and cabana and is adjacent to a future city park. Golfers will enjoy the proximity to the Shawnee Golf Course and Country Club.
If buyers prefer a home in the Olathe School District, Prieb Homes is building in the second phase of Woodland Manor, which opened earlier this year. This community, one mile south of Kansas 10 on Woodland Road, offers an incredible location with quick highway, grocery and retail access.
Here you will find homes priced from the $320,000s to the low $400,000s-plus situated on estate-size home sites, some of which Prieb said are as deep as a football field from the front property line to the back.
These beautiful two-story, four-bedroom, 31/2-bathroom, three-car garage homes feature open floor plans, plenty of livable space and a wide array of features to suit every homeowner’s needs, desires and lifestyle. These homes offer a flex room on the main floor that could be a fifth bedroom, walk-in showers with dual shower heads and covered patios or decks. They also include utility rooms with access to the master bedroom closets and upstairs hallways, raised vanities in the master and first-floor bathrooms, mudrooms off the garage, beautiful granite kitchen counter tops, and large kitchen islands and pantries.
Woodland Manor connects into the popular Prairie Pointe community, enabling neighborhood kids to walk to Olathe elementary, middle and Northwest High schools. Residents enjoy the use of a pool complex and walking trails.
Or buyers may opt for a home in the New Village of Prairie Haven, one of the few new-home communities in Johnson County with homes available in the mid-$200,000s. Many are on cul-de-sacs or treed sties. This community at 131st and Hedge Lane is next to the new Olathe West High School that is currently under construction.
Prieb notes that regardless of which community homebuyers prefer, what they all have in common is that they are places where he would like to live with his family.
“They are all close to great schools, good highway access and community amenities that create a lifestyle that is attractive to people whether they are young couples, new families or empty-nesters,” he said.
