Enveloped by a beautiful pastoral setting, the new residential community of Leabrooke Town Manor is one of Leawood’s most desirable maintenance-provided neighborhoods.

“Sales have been very brisk and only three walkout floor plans remain, so hurry!” said Patty Hummel, who markets the subdivision for ReeceNichols.

Built by Taylor Sterling Construction Company and developed by Leabrooke Townhomes LLC, Leabrooke Town Manor, just off Kenneth Road and 148th Street, is reminiscent of a quaint European village, and once completed, will consist of about 90 homes.

With buyers having the choice between 1 ½-story, reverse, daylight and walkout lower level lots, there is a design to meet a wide range of buyers from single professionals to families with young children, empty-nesters and retirees. The current price range is from $342,000 to $366,000.

The upscale interior features include upgraded 3½-inch hardwood oak floors, custom 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, and beautiful wood treatment on many of the ceilings.

The state-of-the-art kitchens offer granite or quartz countertops with a generous breakfast bar allowing for a secondary eating area, and stainless steel appliances complete with a dishwasher, microwave and gas self-cleaning range. All homes feature granite or marble vanity tops in the bathrooms.

“What we offer at Leabrooke Town Manor are upscale features and finishes that one would expect to find in a higher price point single-family home, at a more affordable price,” said Dan Taylor, the builder of the community.

The reverse 1½-story plan offers the master bedroom and laundry on the main floor, boasting a spacious lower level which includes two bedrooms, a full bathroom, roomy living area, separate storage rooms and egress, daylight or walkout access.

The 1½-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, additional closets, and several that have bay windows with window seats. One of the 1½-story plans has an additional bedroom on the main floor which could also be used as an office. All 1½-story homes include a full pre-plumbed basement with daylight or egress windows.

Each home also includes a textured stucco and rock exterior, a lush landscaped yard and the buyer’s choice of a private deck or patio, plus an attached two-car garage with 8-foot insulated doors and Lift Master belt-driven openers.

“Our homes are in the early stages of construction,” said Hummel, “so there is still time available for buyers to choose their stain and paint colors, tile, granite, carpet and other options that meet their particular needs, desires and lifestyle.”

As a maintenance-provided community, residents will enjoy a relaxing, lock-and-leave lifestyle where all of the routine duties associated with homeownership are covered under the monthly HOA dues.

The monthly homeowner dues include fire and property liability insurance covering the home, fixtures and equipment such as the HVAC, residents’ 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 homeowner dues include trash pick-up, the swimming pool, Sport Court with tennis and basketball, a stocked fishing pond, and the clubhouse with exercise facility.

Residents of Leabrooke Town Manor are only a short five-minute drive to grocery stores, major retailers and several banks, and, only 10 minutes from urgent care clinics, St. Luke’s South and Menorah Medical Center, and many major highways.

There are also many unique artistic and entertainment options at nearby Park Place, a charming retail and dining area; Town Center Plaza and Town Center Crossing, home to over 90 of Kansas City's finest stores and restaurants; Prairie Fire, featuring the new Museum at Prairie Fire, Cinetopia movie theater, a specialty grocery store, restaurants, beauty services, entertainment and guided wetlands.

What’s more, Leabrooke Town Manor is adjacent to beautiful Ironwoods Park. Golf enthusiasts are also just a few miles from Ironhorse Golf Club, one of the Kansas City area’s premier public courses.
