If you’ve ever dreamed of sitting on your back deck or patio looking out on trees or green space, Eagle Creek has the perfect home for you.
“Our builders have a limited number of inventory homes with views of trees or green space that are now finished or nearing completion,” said Carol Smetanka, ReeceNichols agent and community co-manager with Peggy Holmes. “These homes feature light, fresh paint colors, granite counter tops and free-standing soaker tubs in some of the master bathrooms. There’s a reason why these homes have been selling so quickly.”
Now through Oct. 18, guests are encouraged to visit Eagle Creek during the Fall Parade of Homes. Three entries include homes by SAB Homes, Sallee Homes and Summit Custom Homes, all of which are professionally designed and decorated and showcase the latest in new-home construction.
SAB Homes is debuting its Stratoga plan (No. 15), a luxurious 1 1/2-story home with floor-to-ceiling windows looking out onto the heavily treed green space at the rear of the home site. The highly sought-after first-floor master bedroom suite includes its own laundry room and the sweeping open floor plan is wonderful for entertaining. The second floor features a loft area, three spacious bedrooms, two bathrooms and second laundry room.

The Terry, Sallee Homes’ best-selling reverse 1 1/2-story floor plan (No. 16), is a must-see. The open living area features modern finishes, built-in lighted bookshelves flanking the stone accented fireplace and maple hardwood flooring throughout. The master suite offers the ultimate space for relaxation with a freestanding soaking tub set on river stone. The finished lower level with wet bar and additional bedrooms walks out to green space.
Summit Custom Homes offers visitors a tranquil escape with its Huntington floor plan (No. 17), a gorgeous two-story home backing to trees and farmland. Priced below $300,000, this home provides warm finishes, spacious living space and four bedrooms. Attention to detail is found in the antiqued faux finish kitchen island, built-in desk, and granite counter tops throughout. The home is conveniently pre-wired for five-speaker surround sound and security system, and an expanded 14- by 14-foot patio is perfectly private and peaceful.
Surrounded by rolling hills and farmland, Eagle Creek is in Lee’s Summit off of Pryor Road, three miles south of Interstate 470. Residents enjoy the country-like setting, while popular shopping centers, grocery stores and lively downtown Lee’s Summit are just minutes away. Nearby Missouri 150 Highway also allows quick access for those commuting to Johnson County.
Monuments with cascading waterfalls and generous landscaping greet residents at both entrances and two community swimming pools, a playground, acres of green space and paved walking trails connecting to a 27-acre city park provide families and individuals a place to relax and unwind just outside their front door.
“Aside from the school district, the neighborhood amenities and sense of community throughout are a big draw for homebuyers,” explained Smetanka. “People watch out for their neighbors here and sunny weekends guarantee a playground full of children. With the elementary school just across the street, it’s a very family-friendly community.”
Eagle Creek is in the highly acclaimed Lee’s Summit School District, including the commonly sought-after Lee’s Summit West High School attendance area. Children also attend Summit Lakes Middle School and Hawthorn Hill Elementary School.
The mixed-use community features townhomes, single-family homes and land for future villas or other neighborhood friendly mixed uses. The master plan allows for homes in a range of price points to accommodate different lifestyles and, once complete, will include 1,000 residences.
Eagle Creek is developed by Hunt Midwest, a leader in master-planned community development for over 20 years. Hunt Midwest is owned by the family of legendary sports pioneer, Lamar Hunt, also owners of the Kansas City Chiefs.
