Beautiful homes, a prime location, resort-style amenities and picturesque surroundings —Cedar Creek has it all.

“Cedar Creek is one of the few truly master-planned communities,” said Don Julian of Don Julian Builders, a longtime Cedar Creek builder. “That words gets misused, but it really describes what Cedar Creek is. The community has every kind of custom home that you could ask for. All the things buyers want are there.”

And as the Fall Parade of Homes concludes this weekend, now is the perfect time to experience all that Cedar Creek has to offer. This year’s Fall Parade shines a spotlight on two of Cedar Creek’s newest neighborhoods, Hidden Lake Estates and Valley Ridge. Both feature several Parade entries from members of Cedar Creek’s celebrated building team.

Hidden Lake Estates is a secluded enclave near Cedar Creek’s swim and racquet facility. The wooded setting serves as a picturesque backdrop for the neighborhood’s stately homes, priced from the $600,000s.

Five Fall Parade of Homes entries await in Hidden Lake Estates. Two reverse 1½-story, four-bedroom homes from C&M Builders each received a gold award for Pick of the Parade from the Home Builders Association of Greater Kansas City. Additionally, C&M Builders’ home at 25207 W. 105th Terrace also received a first-place award for Distinctive Plan and Design.

Other Parade entries in Hidden Lake Estates include a four-bedroom, 1 ½-story home from James Engle Custom Homes that won a gold award in Pick of the Parade; a 1½-story, four-bedroom home from Don Julian Builders; and a reverse 1½-story, four-bedroom from Starr Homes that’s at trim stage.

For prospective buyers who prefer to work with one of Cedar Creek’s builders on a custom-built home, the Parade of Homes is an ideal time to see Hidden Lake Estates’ enviable selection of homesites, including walkout, daylight and level locations. Another testament to the neighborhood’s allure? Austin Roeser, president of Roeser Homes (a Cedar Creek builder), is currently building his personal home in Hidden Lake Estates, along with two custom-built homes and a new speculative home.

“I build all over the Kansas City metro area, which means I have the flexibility to build my home where I want,” he said. “I choose Cedar Creek.”

Additional speculative homes are underway in Hidden Lake Estates from C&M Builders, Todd Hill Homes, Julian Builders, Starr Homes, James Engle Custom Homes and Roeser Homes. Availability ranges from immediate to 150 days out, with prices ranging from the upper $700,000s to more than $1 million.

Another Fall Parade of Homes entry awaits in Valley Ridge, a new neighborhood that’s quickly attracting the attention of prospective homeowners interested in its prime location. Residents are near Cedar Creek Elementary School, Olathe City Park and an area swimming pool. Factor in Cedar Creek’s extensive amenities package, and it’s no wonder that prospective buyers are eager to immerse themselves in all that Cedar Creek has to offer.

During the Parade, Cedar Creek visitors can see a reverse 1½-story, four-bedroom home from James Engle Custom Homes that’s at trim stage. A steady pace of building activity continues throughout Valley Ridge, including a mix of 1½-story, reverse 1 ½-story and two-story speculative homes underway from James Engle Custom Homes, Roeser Homes and New Mark Homes. Completions are scheduled for later this year. Additionally, the building team (including New Mark Homes, Roeser Homes, James Engle Custom Homes, C&M Builders and Gabriel Homes) is starting a new model row, which will debut in spring 2018.

“A build job recently brought us out to Cedar Creek, and it seemed like a great fit for us to continue to build here,” said Craig Archer, general manager and owner, New Mark Homes.

Prospective homeowners can select from a wide variety of appealing floor plans that are further enhanced by spectacular homesites that take full advantage of the semi-wooded terrain and surrounding scenery. Home prices start in the mid-$400,000s, and more than 30 homesites are currently available for prospective buyers eager to take advantage of this exciting new opportunity.

No visit to Cedar Creek is complete without a tour of the resort-style community’s extensive amenities package that includes two swimming pools, the 65-acre Shadow Lake, four lighted tennis courts, jogging and walking trails, the Swim & Racquet Club and an indoor gymnasium that’s equipped for basketball, volleyball, aerobics and a performance stage.

In addition to nearby Cedar Creek Elementary School, Cedar Creek students also attend Mission Trail Junior High School and the brand-new Olathe West High School, which opened to widespread acclaim just weeks ago. The community is also within close proximity to St. James Academy Catholic High School.
