Homebuyers dreaming of living in a resort-lifestyle community will find their dreams can come true at Creekmoor, a master-planned community in Raymore, Mo.

“People are surprised by all of the amenities in Creekmoor,” said Shelby Austin, who markets this beautiful sprawling community with community manager Linda Martin for ReeceNichols.

Martin added: “Where else can you find a championship golf course, a lake where homeowners can have their own dock, a clubhouse, swimming pool, tennis courts and exercise facilities at these prices?”

One drive through Creekmoor and you realize that it’s more than just a new-home neighborhood. It is bustling with activity — people walking and greeting each other, golfers enjoying the championship course, children walking to the neighborhood school, people of all ages dropping a fishing line into the 108-acre lake or challenging each other on the tennis courts, and in the summer families gathering at the pool. Homeowners can also drop by the clubhouse to see friends socializing or using the fitness center.

Creekmoor has a small-town ambiance that is in keeping with its location in Raymore, which is growing with burgeoning shopping, services, restaurants and major employers such as Honeywell and Cerner. Its convenient access to Interstate 49/U.S. 71 and Missouri 150 allows residents to reach city destinations within minutes.

Creekmoor offers all of this along with quality-built new homes from some of the Kansas City area’s most renowned builders with prices from $300,000s to $600,000-plus in several neighborhoods, as well as home sites priced from $50,000-plus.
