KCHBA Spring Parade of HomesThe best part of spring in Kansas City? Aside from the (mostly) beautiful weather, the season’s arrival means it’s time for the annual Spring Parade of Homes.

This year, Prime Development is thrilled to showcase Parade entries in three communities: Prairie Brook, Prairie Point and Bluestem. The Parade is a great time to shop for a new home as you tour furnished models and get a taste of what each community has to offer in terms of homes, amenities and that all-important feature: location, location, location!

During the Spring and Fall Parades, event organizers recognize American Dream Award Winners. We’re thrilled to announce that two homes in our newest community, Bluestem, received runner-up awards: James Engle Custom Homes’Laurel,” a four-bedroom, 1 ½-story home located at 11313 W. 153rd St.; and Summit Custom Home’sBristol Ridge II,” a five-bedroom, two-story home at 11413 W. 153rd St.

The Parade continues through April 29, which means you have plenty of time to come out and explore our communities. Homes are open daily from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. The activity level during this first week of the Parade has been impressive. Debbie Sinclair, who markets Prairie Point with Mara Dona Wood, says the community has seen a high number of visitors each day as prospective homeowners are eager to tour the community’s new model row that unites four of the largest builders in Kansas City: Rodrock Homes, Summit Custom Homes, James Engle Custom Homes and Roeser Homes.

In Prairie Brook and Bluestem, the Parade response has been similar. Limited opportunities remain to purchase a single-family home in Prairie Brook, a dually focused community that also offers villa homes. And in Bluestem, Prime Development’s marketing director, Dennis Patterson, said the community saw “incredible” Parade traffic last weekend.

“Over 200 groups went through on Sunday alone,” he said.

Not only did Bluestem see a high level of activity, but one of the Parade entries sold on Sunday—James Engle’s expanded “Birch” floor plan.

If you haven’t yet visited one of our communities during this year’s Spring Parade, now’s the time to get out and explore! And even if you’ve already stopped by, you’re welcome back for a second look. To stay up-to-date on Parade-related information, follow Prime Development and Bluestem on Facebook.

"Churchill" model.

One of the best parts of the Spring Homes Tour, aside from visiting and touring the latest in residential construction, is the chance for builders to receive recognition for their work.

We’re proud to announce that one of our builders, James Engle Custom Homes, received two awards at last week’s recognition ceremony. Both of the award-winners are in Prairie Brook Villas, and prospective buyers are invited to visit the community and tour these outstanding homes.

Tour entry 90 received the American Dream Award. Located at 24525 W. 110th Street, the three-bedroom, 2 1/2-bathroom home is the company’s “Churchill” floor plan, a elegant home that features a soaring entry, ample great room with a gas fireplace and oversized windows that allow natural light to stream throughout the home’s main level. Thoughtful architectural touches add style and polish to the home, including archways, cut-out ceilings and conveniently placed built-ins.

Tour entry 91 received the First Runner-Up American Dream Award. The “Downing” model home, located at 24521 W. 110th St., is a three-bedroom, 2 1/2-bathroom home that includes a main-level master suite with a living area. An upstairs loft is an ideal spot for an office or additional living space, and a full basement can easily be finished for a media or recreation room, as well as additional bedrooms or storage space.

Both homes are priced at $249,950. The Spring Homes Tour continues through May 1, and the community is open from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. daily. Congratulations again to James Engle Custom Homes, and we hope to see you at Prairie Brook Villas soon!
