Enveloped by a beautiful pastoral setting, the new residential community of Leabrooke Town Manor is one of Leawood’s most desirable maintenance-provided neighborhoods. The Home Builders Association of Greater Kansas City agrees, recently awarding Tour No. 230 on The Fall Parade of Homes as a 2015 Pick of the Parade Runner Up.

Sales have been at a brisk pace at Leabrooke Town Manor during its special “Fall into Savings” incentive.

Through it, both the Leabrooke master and Leabrooke Town Manor HOA dues will be paid by the developer through the end of 2016 with a signed contract on any home by Oct. 31, 2015.

A second, $7,000 decorating allowance incentive is also currently being offered by the developer for seven featured homes, one of which is award-winning Tour No. 230. Together, these incentives represent a significant financial savings for the buyers.

“These two incentives have far exceeded our expectations in terms of interest,” said Patty Hummel, who markets the community for ReeceNichols. “They have attracted a wide array of prospective homebuyers from single professionals, to families with young children, empty-nesters and retirees desiring a maintenance-provided lifestyle.”

Prices in this new, luxurious and peaceful maintenance-provided community in Leawood just off Kenneth Road and 148th Street range from $339,000 to $369,000.

“Another big draw here,” Hummel said, “is that this is most likely one of the last opportunities for people to buy a new construction residence in Leawood at this price point.”

The monthly homeowners dues include fire and property liability insurance covering the home, fixtures and equipment such as the HVAC; resident water and sewer; repair and replacement of roof and gutters; mowing, edging, trimming, fertilizing and weeding of lawns; pruning of all trees and bushes; snow removal; and annual start-up, winterization and repair of the lawn sprinkler system.

The annual Leabrooke Master HOA dues include trash pick-up, the swimming pool, Sport Court with tennis and basketball, a stocked fishing pond and the clubhouse with exercise facility.

The upscale interior features include upgraded 3 1/2-inch hardwood oak floors, knotty alder cabinetry, brushed-nickel or oil-rubbed hardware, crown molding, iron spindles, oak tread and designer carpet on the stairs, upgraded 12- by 24-inch tile in the bathrooms, stone or tile fireplaces, built-in bookcases and beautiful wood treatment on many of the ceilings.

The state-of-the-art kitchens offer granite or quartz counter tops with a generous breakfast bar allowing for a secondary eating area, and a stainless steel appliance package complete with a gas self-cleaning range. All homes feature granite or marble vanity tops in the bathrooms and some include soaker tubs.

The reverse 1 1/2-story plan offers the master bedroom and laundry on the main floor, and boasts a spacious lower level which includes two bedrooms, a full bathroom, roomy living area, separate storage rooms, and egress, daylight or walkout access.

The 1 1/2-story plan also offers the master bedroom and laundry on the main floor with an upstairs that includes two bedrooms, a full bathroom, spacious loft, and additional closets, a few also featuring bay windows with window seats. One of the 1 1/2-story plans has an additional bedroom on the main floor which could also be used as an office. All 1 1/2-story homes include a full pre-plumbed basement with daylight or egress windows.

Each Leabrooke Town Manor home is highlighted by a textured stucco and rock exterior, a lush landscaped yard, and the buyer’s choice of a private deck or patio. All homes also include an attached two-car garage with 8-foot insulated doors and Lift Master belt-driven openers.

The community is conveniently located within a few minutes’ drive of numerous grocery stores, major retailers, restaurants, urgent care clinics and many major highways. Residents needing a more urban fix will find unique artistic and entertainment options at nearby Park Place, Town Center Plaza and Town Center Crossing, and Prairie Fire.

What’s more, Leabrooke Town Manor is adjacent to beautiful Ironwoods Park encompassing a nature center, outdoor amphitheater, physical fitness challenge course, fishing and cabins for group overnights.

“We fully expect these seven incentive homes to sell fast,” said Hummel, “so we encourage prospective buyers to hurry to enjoy these significant savings.”
