Visitors to Staley Hills were pleased to find five distinct, beautiful homes open to tour during the Fall Parade of Homes which began Oct. 3.

“We’ve already had hundreds of people come through the first week of the Parade,” said Sara Stucker, ReeceNichols agent and co-community manager with Deb DiPonio. “This is the best time to come out and enjoy touring homes in a low-pressure environment. Whether people are just beginning their new-home buying journey or simply looking for decorating ideas, Deb and I enjoy getting to talk with guests. It also helps us to hear feedback on the houses so we can share this information with our builders.”

The homes are built by some of the metro’s well-respected home builders, including Aspen Homes, McFarland Custom Builders, New Mark Homes, Olympus Custom Homes and Sallee Homes, and showcase the latest in new-home construction.

Aspen Homes’ Hawthorn V (No. 117) has many unique features, including an angled staircase, custom built-ins surrounding the gorgeous stone fireplace and a covered deck overlooking trees and green space. The two-story, five-bedroom floor plan is full of upgrades and is sure to be a favorite on the tour.

It’s no wonder New Mark Homes’ Sierra II (No. 119) is already sold as it offers all the popular features and finishes that today’s homebuyers are looking for. This home won a Pick of the Parade Runner-Up Award. The open ranch plan has three bedrooms on the main floor and a finished basement with a spacious family room, two additional bedrooms and full bathroom.

The Woodland II, a stunning reverse 1 1/2-story home (No. 121), on a beautiful walkout home site, offers main-level living with a luxurious master suite, laundry room and guest bedroom on the first floor. Hardwood floors throughout add to the sense of openness and the tall windows have this home feeling light and bright.

The highly sought-after Lexington II two-story home by McFarland Custom Builders (No. 118) and the ever popular Rachel 1 1/2-story plan by Olympus Custom Homes (No. 120) are currently under construction and also open to tour. Both homes are currently available for sale and allow potential buyers the opportunity to choose some of their finishes.

Robertson Construction and Freeman Custom Homes complete the Staley Hills builder team and both builders have homes in various stages of construction.

Surrounded by trees and green space, Staley Hills offers residents a retreat from the hustle and bustle of everyday life with two dramatic water features bordering the community’s entrance, a crystal clear swimming pool, scenic walking trails and beautiful, stone-clad homes lining the streets.

Situated off North Woodland Avenue and Shoal Creek Parkway, just north of M-152, Staley Hills is close to many conveniences such as Zona Rosa and has excellent access to major highways, Kansas City International Airport and downtown Kansas City. It is located within the highly acclaimed North Kansas City School District where students attend Staley High School, New Mark Middle School and Bell Prairie Elementary School.

“Quality and craftsmanship have made the builders in Staley Hills some of the most well-known in the Northland and across the Kansas City metro,” said DiPonio. “They all have their own style when it comes to finishes and floor plans, which contributes to the variety of homes throughout the community. The range of elevations up and down the streets make Staley Hills anything but ordinary.”

Staley Hills is a master-planned community of over 360 homes located in Kansas City, North. It is developed by Hunt Midwest, an industry leader in master-planned community development for over 20 years. The Kansas City-based company is owned by the family of Lamar Hunt, owners of the Kansas City Chiefs of the National Football League. Other Hunt Midwest communities include Northgate Village, The Reserve at Riverstone, Running Horse, Woodneath Farms, Benson Place, Eagle Creek and Timber Trails.
