A unique opportunity awaits homebuyers in Chapel Hill. The 1 1/2-story model home plan awarded the title “Best New Home Model in Kansas City” is now for sale in the new-home community designated “Community of the Year.”

ParkView Homes was awarded Best New Home Model in Kansas City by Kansas City Homes and Gardens magazine for its reverse 1 1/2-story model home plan, The Broadmoor. In addition, this home plan received the Grand Award Pick of the Parade designation from the Kansas Home Builders Association.

Builder ParkView Homes is building three of its Broadmoor floor plans, which are available in three different square footages. In addition, the other popular reverse 1 1/2-story and 1 1/2-story plans are ready for a new homeowner to move right in.

“The chef’s kitchen in the Broadmoor has an enormous island, Bosch stainless appliances, walk-in pantry and vaulted ceiling with exposed beams,” said Bill Gerue with Weichert Realtors Graham-Welch, who markets the community. “Do not miss the master suite in this four-bedroom, three-bath home. In addition to a wall of windows from which to enjoy the community’s 70 acres of green space, it has a stacked stone fireplace, spa bathroom, laundry room access and walk-in closet visitors have to see to believe.”

Chad Volkerding, who is the owner and operator of ParkView Homes, has nearly two decades of experience in the building industry, ranging from entry level to multi-million dollar homes. He has also made a special effort to select a team that has demonstrated extra attention to detail that is the hallmark of every home built by ParkView.

“From design to final finish, quality is what you will experience with ParkView Homes,” Volkerding said. “Strict attention is paid to all phases of the home-building process and we are on site every day to make sure that all details have been taken care of. We are committed to excellence and integrity in a unique team environment that empowers people to be their best.

“ParkView Homes has a variety of home styles and floor plans to choose from and we welcome the opportunity to work with you to build your dream home.”

Meet Volkerding at his designer model home today from 1 to 3 p.m. at 13440 W. 172nd St. and learn first-hand what ParkView Homes has to offer.

Seventy-one beautiful new lots opened a couple of months ago to potential buyers in the second half of the Estates of Chapel Hill, Gerue said. These larger size lots offer outstanding views, provide wide open green space and back to the community’s timbered tree reserve. The majority of these lots have cul-de-sac, walkout or walk-up opportunities.

One exclusive cul-de-sac in this newly opened area will be marked with a separate monument as the Enclave. These custom homes will sit on some of the community’s most aesthetic lots, back to the timbered tree reserve and have expansive views.

Chapel Hill is spread over 240 acres where more than 600 homes are planned. The pastoral charm of the community has been secured with the reservation of 70 acres of green space. Residents currently enjoy all the community amenities, including a pool complex, playground and hike and bike trails. A second pool is planned for upcoming phases. Also, the community is within minutes of fine dining, shopping, health care and family entertainment opportunities.

Also providing recreation is the Heritage Park complex adjacent to Chapel Hill. It covers more than 1,200 acres and features an 18-hole golf course and a 40-acre lake for fishing, sailing and swimming. A 30-acre off-leash dog park is a popular amenity as are picnic cabanas, sports fields and green spaces.

Chapel Hill is within the award-winning, top-rated Spring Hill School District. Spring Hill schools have earned the coveted Kansas Standard of Excellence award. Students are ranked No. 1 and are given every possible advantage to achieve at the highest level. As an example, MacBook Air computers are provided for all students in grades 6-12.

“At Chapel Hill, you will find home plans to fit just about everyone’s lifestyle needs,” Gerue said. “We have a portfolio of new homes available with pricing beginning at $338,500 to $599,950. Other agents bring their relocation clients to Chapel Hill because they know they will be able to find what their client needs and desires without having to visit countless new home areas.”
