Summer is hot and sales are brisk at Leabrooke Town Manor, located just off Kenneth Road and 148th Street in Leawood.
Enveloped by a beautiful pastoral setting, the new residential community is one of Leawood’s most desirable maintenance-provided neighborhoods. “Sales have been on fire this summer!” said Patty Hummel who markets the community for ReeceNichols. “Out of the 49 new construction homes, only four remain for sale.”
Reminiscent of a quaint European village, Leabrooke Town Manor currently offers reverse floor plan homes including two Coventry plans, one of which is a walk out, a Mayfair II and a Coventry II.
The Mayfair II features an expanded egress well on the lower level windows, allowing for additional light, in turn, capturing a feeling of first floor living. This home also boasts an expanded garage allowing for extra storage.
The Coventry II is an expanded version of the Coventry floor plan that includes additional living space. This increase in area features a generous laundry room with a cubby, coat closet, and a large walk-in pantry. The lower level living area has an option to include a centered fireplace enveloped by a pair of large windows that look out into the expanded egress well, or the buyer can add a door which would lead to an optional courtyard.
These well-appointed, upscale, maintenance-provided townhomes include luxurious features and finishes that one would expect to find in a higher price point single-family home, but at a more affordable price. This includes 3-inch select white oak hardwood floors, custom cabinetry, iron spindles, designer carpet on the stairs, a quiet floor system, upgraded 12- by 24-inch tile in the bathrooms, stone or tile fireplaces, and beautiful wood treatments on the living room ceilings.
The state-of-the-art kitchen offers granite or quartz counter tops with a generous breakfast bar allowing for a secondary eating area, and stainless steel appliances complete with a gas self-cleaning range. All floor plans have master suites on the main level with granite or marble vanity tops in the bathroom and showers with a bench seat.
Every home also includes a textured stucco and stone exterior, lush landscaped yard, either a private deck or patio, and an attached two-car garage with 8-foot insulated doors and Lift Master belt-driven openers.
According to Hummel, “The residents enjoy the relaxing lock-and-leave lifestyle here where all the routine exterior duties associated with typical homeownership are covered under the monthly homeowner association 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 enjoy being within five minutes of grocery stores, major retailers and several banks, in addition to 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; and 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, and golf enthusiasts are also just a few miles from Ironwoods Golf Club, one of the Kansas City area’s premier public courses.
For residents with children, Leabrooke Town Manor feeds into the Blue Valley School District including Prairie Star Elementary, Prairie Star Middle and Blue Valley High Schools.
“We really encourage prospective buyers who have an interest in a maintenance-provided lifestyle, as well as living in Leawood, to visit us quickly before these remaining four homes are sold,” said Hummel. “This is most likely one of the last opportunities for people to buy a new construction residence in Leawood at this price point.”
