Canyon Creek Opens Spectacular New Phase

Categories: Canyon Creek, Inventory, New Homes, Prime Development | Posted: February 22, 2016
Canyon Creek Lenexa

Canyon Creek Entry Monument

Located just off Kansas 10 highway, one mile west of Kansas 7, the master-planned residential community of Canyon Creek is a premier metropolitan community providing homebuyers with a vibrant lifestyle and a remarkable living environment.

The community, thoughtfully planned with an eye for natural beauty with over 70 acres of adjacent wooded parkland that create a serene environment, encompasses four distinctive enclaves: Canyon Creek by the Lake, Canyon Creek by the Park, Canyon Creek Shores, Canyon Creek Highlands. Prices range from the $300,000s to over $1 million, with plans including two-story, 1-1/2-story and reverse 1-1/2-story designs.

Throughout Canyon Creek, there are a multitude of desirable home sites available, including treed, lakefront, greenbelt, walkout and daylight lots situated on curving streets and private cul-de-sacs, carefully designed to respect the contours of the land and oriented to provide views of open space. Over half of the lots are on private cul-de-sacs and over a third back to city parkland.

New construction has started in Canyon Creek Shores, situated just north of Mize Lake. Here prospective buyers will find 13 highly coveted, secluded and heavily treed, over ½-acre walkout, lakefront home sites.

The newest phase in Canyon Creek Highlands has also been a hot topic among prospective buyers, featuring an additional 54 lots, with 13 of them being lakefront. Since opening the phase this past fall, over 15 homes have sold, and 17 spec homes are in varying stages of completion.

 According to MaraDona Wood, who markets the development with partner Debbie Sinclair, sales have been at a brisk pace. “In 2015, we wrote over 62 new home sales contracts, which has made us quickly become a leader in new home sales communities. And with our projections for 2016, we’re headed to numbers well above that.”

If the sales alone don’t speak volumes, Canyon Creek’s six-home, fully furnished, model row was the most awarded model row in the Kansas City metro area, receiving 10 awards during last year’s Fall Parade of Homes.

Current available inventory includes 20 finished spec homes, with more soon to be available within 30, 60, 90 days. Don’t stress if you can’t find a home that fits your distinct styles and tastes, new homes are beginning in Canyon Creek every month.

Lot prices range from the upper $60,000s to the mid-$100,000s. Due to growing popularity and unprecedented success during the Fall Parade, choice building sites are going fast, so customers must act quickly to reserve their preferred lot.

Within the community, residents can enjoy a three-acre amenity complex featuring a large free-form pool, replete with a sparkling fountain, and swimming area with a shallow “reef ledge” welcoming children and parents alike. Experience an expansive deck with ample room for sunbathers, a striking pergola and a handsome Prairie-style cabana building flanked by two covered porches that offer a shady reprieve from the sun. In addition, Canyon Creek Highlands offers residents a second community pool, equipped with a cabana and seating area for gatherings.

Other recreational features include a park-grade playground, two basketball courts and a large, open play field for recreational soccer, softball, Frisbee and football.

Next to Canyon Creek, paved trails along the forested shoreline of seven-acre Mize Park Lake are enjoyed daily by resident walkers, joggers, bicyclers, fishermen and nature lovers.

Besides the community itself, a great deal of buyers are attracted to Canyon Creek because of its excellent schools – Cedar Creek Elementary, Mission Trail Middle, and Olathe Northwest – and close access to 7 Highway and 10 Highway, making it easy to get anywhere in Kansas City within 10 minutes.

“With all of the new development on Renner Road and Lenexa City Center, new restaurants, entertainment, retail businesses, recreational opportunities and the new convention center in Olathe off of Woodland,” said Sinclair, “the Canyon Creek residents have all of the lifestyle amenities they need and desire so close to home.”

When deciding to purchase a home in a Prime Development community, prospective buyers can feel secure they are investing in a Johnson County-based real estate company with a long-running, financially secure history. Prime Development’s success through good and trying economic times is rooted in a philosophy of providing the right product in the right location at the right price, and building distinctive neighborhoods that exceed customer expectations.

To truly discover Canyon Creek’s natural beauty, prospective homebuyers are highly encouraged to view the new community video on www.CanyonCreekKS.com or YouTube.

New Available Inventory within Olathe’s hidden gem

Categories: Home Builders, Inventory, New Homes, Persimmon Pointe, Prime Development | Posted: November 18, 2015

Persimmon Pointe Sales Office

As Johnson County has grown over the past few decades, prices of new homes in Olathe have risen steadily. According to Altos Research, in 2015, the average price of a new home in the city has climbed to almost $350,000. Today, Persimmon Pointe
is one of the few places in Johnson County where buyers still can find new single-family homes priced in the upper $200,000s, and with land values and building costs on the rise, it could be one of the last.

According to the Persimmon Pointe community sales managers, Teresa Acklin and Cathy Drake, “sales have remained strong, even as the market has begun to slow down. With the construction of the new Olathe high school continuing to push forward, many families have been exploring the surrounding area, and end up falling in love with our community.”

New-home buyers are taking notice of this hidden gem, nestled in a quiet corner of northwest Olathe, and all it has to offer. Nearby parkland, great Olathe schools, and its proximity to major highway networks have inspired buyers to be quick to act on the incredible deals offered for new homes at Persimmon

Persimmon Pointe is located in an unspoiled corner of northwest Olathe at 127th and Hedge Lane, just one mile west of Kansas 7 Highway. Its proximity to highways Kansas 10, Interstate 35 and Interstate 435 provides quick access to shopping, dining, entertainment and job centers, but that’s not the only reason why buyers move there.

According to Acklin and Drake, Persimmon Pointe is attractive to buyers not only because of its easy access to highway networks, but also for its rural surroundings.

Living in Persimmon Pointe affords families a variety of opportunities to enjoy some of the best public parks and recreational facilities in Johnson County. Hundreds of acres of parkland and conservation areas in the vicinity ensure that life at Persimmon Pointe will never be far from nature’s doorstep.

Resident students are able to walk to new, highly-rated Olathe District schools. Located immediately south of the community is Prairie Center Elementary. Mission Trail Middle School, home of the Timberwolves, is less than a mile west, and just one mile south of Persimmon Pointe on Santa Fe and Hedge Lane, a new state-of-the-art Olathe high school campus is now under construction and scheduled to open for the 2017-2018 school year.

“As much as homebuyers weigh over their home’s potential location, they want to make sure they are teaming up with a strong developer, and knowledgeable builders.” Persimmon Pointe has paired up with some of the best-known new home builders in the Kansas City area.

Model home builders, Summit Custom Homes, Prieb Homes and Sallee Homes, offer buyers dozens of house plans to choose from, providing many different styles, options and finishes to personalize the home to suit their distinctive tastes and needs.

Additional builders in Persimmon Pointe include SAB Homes, Dusselier and Marks Homes, and Chris George Custom Homes.

“We are proud of what this community has to offer,” Acklin reported. “Where else can a new-home buyer find great value, great location and diversity of product, all at an affordable price? Persimmon Pointe is one of the only new-home communities at this price range to also display three fully-furnished models.”

In addition to touring the model row, visitors will find an array of new spec homes available in various stages of construction. They represent two-story, reverse 1-1/2-story, and ranch plans, priced from the $290,000s to the mid $300,000s. Currently, Persimmon Pointe has four homes ready for immediate occupancy, with additional inventory ready in 60-90 days.

With more, and more, homebuyers taking notice of Persimmon Pointe’s ideal Olathe location, only a handful of home sites and readily available inventory remain in this final phase. As this may soon be the last opportunity to build in this quite community, the time to act is now. Persimmon Pointe invites everyone interested in purchasing a new home to come discover this hidden gem of Olathe.

Canyon Creek Hits a Homerun

Canyon Creek Lenexa

Since Prime Development announced the opening of their fourth phase with 40 new home sites at Canyon Creek last spring, thousands of homebuyers have visited the community to take advantage of the latest offerings. As demand continues at unprecedented levels, Prime Development recently opened two new additional phases.

Some of the Kansas City area’s most beautiful, rolling and wooded terrain is found in and around Canyon Creek. As housing construction burgeons in this revitalized Lenexa neighborhood, Canyon Creek is blossoming into a premier metropolitan community. Canyon Creek provides homebuyers a vibrant lifestyle and a remarkable living environment.

For homebuyers who need early occupancy, there are several spec homes available for occupancy within 90 days, some available in less than 30 days. Home prices range in the $380,000’s to $800,000’s+, with plans including two-story, one-and-a-half story and reverse one-and-a-half story designs.

Canyon Creek is a master-planned residential community comprised of over 400 lots, thoughtfully planned with an eye for natural beauty. Over 70 acres of adjacent wooded parkland create a serene natural environment for the neighborhood.  To truly discover Canyon Creek’s natural beauty, prospective homebuyers are highly encouraged to view the new community video on www.CanyonCreekKS.com or YouTube!

“Response to the affordable lot prices and the wide selection of spec homes has been incredible,” stated MaraDona Wood, co-marketer with partner Debbie Sinclair. “Prospective homeowners have been eager to take advantage of exceptional opportunities at Canyon Creek that became available only a few months ago. Lot reservations and home sales continue to increase as more and more home buyers discover what Canyon Creek has to offer.”

“With opening of the new phases, customers interest and enthusiasm has surpassed our highest expectations. We are amazed by the level of customer interest and invite everyone to join in the excitement,” adds Wood.

There is a multitude of desirable home sites at Canyon Creek, including treed, lakefront, greenbelt, walk-out and daylight lots. Over half of the lots are located on private cul-de-sacs, and over a third back to city parkland. Lot prices range from the upper $60’s to the mid $100’s.

In response to high demand, construction of the newest phases began in early spring, consisting of over 50 new home sites in The Highlands, and 13 highly coveted lake front home sites in The Shores. Available now, these phases offer new lakeside and treed lots. Choice building sites are going fast, so customers must act quickly to reserve their preferred lot. And if that wasn’t enough, Canyon Creek’s seven home, fully furnished, model row was the most awarded model row in the Kansas City metro area, receiving 10 awards during this year’s Fall Parade of Homes.

Homes are situated on curving streets and private cul-de-sacs, carefully designed to respect the contours of the land and oriented to provide views of open space. Inside the neighborhood, they find thoughtful residential enclaves that blend distinctive architecture with nature’s beauty to create a truly exceptional living environment. Next to Canyon Creek, paved trails along the forested shoreline of 7-acre Mize Park Lake are enjoyed daily by resident walkers, joggers, bicyclers, fishermen and nature lovers.

Canyon Creek’s three-acre amenity complex exhibits a high standard for family-oriented recreation. A free-form pool, replete with a sparkling fountain, features a large swimming area with a shallow “reef ledge” at one side that welcomes children and parents alike. There is an expansive deck with ample room for sunbathers, a striking pergola, and a handsome Prairie-style cabana building flanked by two covered porches that offer a shady reprieve from the sun. Other recreational features include a park-grade playground, a basketball court, and a large, open play field for recreational soccer, softball, Frisbee and football.

Canyon Creek has distinguished itself as the premier new home community in the city of Lenexa, which itself received national recognition when Business Week magazine named the city as the “Best Place to Raise Kids” in the state of Kansas. Located just off K-10 highway, one mile west of K-7, Canyon Creek provides quick and easy access to highway networks and close proximity to dining, entertainment, and recreational opportunities at nearby Lenexa parks.

When deciding to purchase a home in a Prime Development community, prospective buyers can feel secure they are investing in a Johnson County based real estate company with a long-running, financially secure history. Prime Development’s success through good and trying economic times is rooted in a philosophy of providing the right product in the right location at the right price, and building distinctive neighborhoods that exceed customer expectations.

Persimmon Pointe Home Selections and Prices Excite Buyers

Categories: New Homes, Persimmon Pointe, Prime Development | Posted: February 23, 2015

Nestled in a quite corner of northwest Olathe, new home buyers are taking notice of a hidden gem, Persimmon Pointe, and all it has to offer. Nearby parkland and great Olathe schools have inspired buyers to be quick to act on incredible deals offered for new homes at Persimmon Pointe.

As Johnson County has grown over the past few decades, prices of new homes in the City of Olathe have risen steadily. In 2012, the average price of a new home in the city rose to over $340,000. Today, Persimmon Pointe is one of the few places in Johnson County where buyers still can find new single-family homes priced in the upper $200’s, and with land values and building costs on the rise, it could be one of the last.

According to the Persimmon Pointe community sales managers, Teresa Acklin and Cathy Rew, sales have been especially strong during a time when the market typically slows. Last month four families chose Persimmon Pointe for their new home. With completed homes available immediately and choice lots still remaining, the time to act is now.

DIVERSE INVENTORY. Persimmon Pointe’s model home builders, Summit Custom Homes, Prieb Homes, and Sallee Homes are among the best-known home builders in the Kansas City area. From their portfolios of dozens of house plans, customers can choose from many different styles, options and finishes to personalize homes to suit their distinctive tastes and needs.

“We are proud of what this community has to offer,” Teresa Acklin reports. “Where else can a new home buyer find great value, great location, and diversity of product, all at an affordable price? Persimmon Pointe is one of the only new-home communities at this price range to display three fully-furnished models.”

In addition to touring model row, visitors will find nine new spec homes available immediately or in varying stages of completion. They represent four two-story plans and two reverse 1 ½-story plans, priced from the $280’s to the low $300’s.

To stay ahead of market demand, 6-8 new reverse 1 ½-story spec homes are now under construction, with completion expected late spring or early summer. Summit Custom Homes recently purchased three more lots to begin construction of ranch and reverse 1 ½-story spec homes, and Prieb Homes plans to start two more of its ever-popular Harlow II plan.

Scheduled to break ground soon, SAB Homes is anticipated to debut a newly designed 1 ½-story plan, not found elsewhere in the Kansas City market. “ We are pleased to have SAB Homes join our list of notable builders,” said Cathy Rew. “By bringing new 1 ½-story and reverse 1 ½-story plans to Persimmon Pointe, our neighborhood will truly have a house design for everyone.”

MORE THAN A HOME. Persimmon Pointe is located in an unspoiled corner of northwest Olathe at 127th & Hedge Lane, just one mile west of Kansas Highway 7. Its proximity to highways K-10, I-35 and I-435 provides quick access to shopping, dining, entertainment and job centers, but that’s not the only reason why buyers move there.

Teresa Acklin reports that Persimmon Pointe is attractive to buyers not only because of its easy access to highway networks, but also for its rural surroundings. “Many customers come from Gardner and Spring Hill looking for a new home that’s closer to work, without sacrificing the small-town feel,” said Acklin. “They love the rural feeling, the rolling landscape and peaceful countryside.”

Living at Persimmon Pointe affords families a variety of opportunities to enjoy some of the best public parks and recreational facilities in Johnson County. Hundreds of acres of parkland and conservation areas in the vicinity insure that life at Persimmon Pointe will never be far from nature’s doorstep.

VICINITY TO SCHOOLS. Living in Persimmon Pointe, children are never far from home. Resident students can walk to new, highly rated Olathe District schools. Located immediately south of the community is Prairie Center Elementary. Mission Trail Middle School, home of the Timberwolves, is less than a mile west, and just one mile south of Persimmon Pointe on Santa Fe and Hedge Lane, a new state-of-the-art Olathe high school campus is now under construction and scheduled to open for the 2017-2018 school year.

Persimmon Pointe invites everyone interested in purchasing a new home to come discover this hidden gem of Olathe.

Final Phase at Bluestem has Broken Ground

Early morning view from Bluestem’s walking trail.

If you have driven by 151st and Quivira this summer, you may have noticed there has been a lot of activity on the Southeast corner of the intersection. Bluestem has spent many months grading and preparing, what will be, the last phase of this premier New Home community.

Recently, Bluestem has received building permits and begun breaking ground on several foundations. With only 40 premium lots available in its final phase, the time for building is now!

For those who want to take part in designing your dream home, stop by or give us a jingle!

At Bluestem, there is a strong list of builders scheduled to complete a variety of plans from their extensive portfolios. Currently slated to build are, James Engle Custom Homes, Lambie Custom Homes, JS Robinson, Roeser Homes, Bickimer Homes, LDH Construction, and Summit Custom Homes. If you are interested in bringing in an outside builder, upon review and approval by developer, outside builders are accepted.

Understanding the building process can sometimes be tricky; especially when builders have many projects underway. Typically, the digging and pouring of foundations will take roughly one month, and new home construction is taking about eight to ten months. As we start nearing colder months, pouring foundations can become a much more difficult and lengthy process. If you want to move into your new home by early spring next year, let’s sit down and discuss your desires. The time is now to make your dream home a reality!
