Lime Stone Road Townhomes entered its first Parade of Homes many years ago and came away with Community of the Year accolades. The property has aged well since that time, collecting awards as the best maintenance-provided product by the Parade of Homes judges, Grand Award-winner for its landscaping presented by the Mid-America Green Industry Council and Links Magazine’s best golf community for convenience to city life. Come see for yourself what everyone else is writing about.

The community welcomed its first residents into phase 2 in August and plans on welcoming 13 more over the next 10 months.

“Yes, these homes are selling that fast,” said Chris Powell, who markets the townhomes for Better Homes and Gardens Real Estate Kansas City Homes. “We have very few lots left to choose from but those that are left still offer what every townhome buyer is looking for in a lot and location.”

The community is part of the nationally recognized National Golf Club of Kansas City in Parkville. It’s rolling terrain, breathtaking views, natural habitat, award-winning Park Hill School District and, of course, its Tom Watson Signature Golf course are just a few reasons why The National stands apart from all other developments, the marketing team said.

Along with the numerous floor plans offered with the traditional product, buyers can choose a new concept in provided maintenance. A limited offering of eight stand-alone townhomes are available. Four units have been sold since it was introduced three months ago. These townhomes have no common walls and will offer an optional three-car garage.

The current inventory offers walkout and daylight lower levels. As with the existing townhome product, the stand-alone homes offer an open feeling with high ceilings, large expanses of windows and efficient living spaces with the kitchen, great room and master suite on one level. They offer the standard finishes featuring custom cabinetry, granite counter tops, hardwood floors and GE appliance packages.

Residents of this maintenance-provided community have time to shop and play golf because they never have to take time out of their lives to paint their homes, repair the roof, fix or clean gutters, mow, mulch, trim, fertilize or even remove snow from their sidewalks and driveways.

And the location is second to none. In less than 5 minutes, they can shop for all their basic necessities at Parkville Commons, a 250,000-square-foot retail center anchored by a Price Chopper grocery store. In addition to Price Chopper they can pick up dry cleaning at Pride Cleaners, find their everyday needs at Walgreen’s and dine at Nick-n-Jake’s, Rusty Horse Tavern, Jimmy John’s, Sakae Sushi and Pizza Hut. It is also home to the metropolitan area’s most active and vibrant health and wellness center, the Platte County Community Center/YMCA.

If you are active and the indoor YMCA does not tickle your fancy, you have several other outdoor options. You can walk or run along the extensive trail system right outside your front door or visit English Landing Park where you may walk or run along-side the Missouri River or become one with nature in Parkville’s Nature Sanctuary.

Dale Brouk, who has developed the property for FiveStar Lifestyles, thinks with prices starting in the low $300,000s coupled with historically low interest rates, the Lime Stone Road Townhomes offer an unprecedented opportunity for those who want to experience The National’s active resort lifestyle.
