Homes selling quickly in Lee’s Summit community
The Rob Ellerman Team
Home sales have taken off in Foxberry Estates, an affordably priced community on the eastern edge of Lee’s Summit just south U.S. 50 and Missouri 7 highways.
“Foxberry Estates is on fire!” said Kelly Monaco, Reece & Nichols on-site agent. “We sold three homes in one week alone and we sold four homes in one month. I believe this is going to be a great community, with its state-of-the-art clubhouse and pool, and its convenient access to the highway. It is Lee’s Summit’s best-kept secret.”
Summit Custom Homes, the exclusive builder, has six available homes in Foxberry Estates: a Windsor Hills, three Pebblebrooks, a Sullivan and a Sheffield plan. All homes are listed in the upper $200,000s and are in the early stages of the building process, with plenty of time to make personal design selections.
The Windsor Hills plan is a two-story home with about 2,200 square feet. It has four bedrooms, 2 1/2 bathrooms, and a three-car garage. The home features an open floor plan with kitchen island, breakfast nook, mudroom, integrated laundry room and master suite, and large walk-in closets. It will feature a number of upgrades, such as a covered roof over the extended patio, granite kitchen counter tops with a black Silgranit under-mount sink, wood stair end-caps and upgraded carpeting.
The Pebblebrook plan is a two-story home with about 2,286 square feet, four bedrooms, 2 1/2 bathrooms, and a three-car garage. The plan has a breakfast nook and kitchen island, powder room off of the kitchen, large walk-in pantry and closets, and an upstairs laundry room.
The Sheffield is a ranch-style home with three bedrooms, two bathrooms and a three-car garage. It is an open floor plan with an integrated laundry and master suite. The home will feature granite kitchen counter tops, tile and carpet upgrades, and an expanded custom patio.
The Sullivan is a reverse 1 1/2-story walkout with four bedrooms, three bathrooms and a three car-garage. The home will feature a custom faux finish on the kitchen island, a cedar deck, extended concrete patio, wood flooring in the great room and a wet bar with granite top.
Foxberry’s model home and sales office is a furnished Pebblebrook, so buyers can tour the model and see what the finished Pebblebrooks will look like. The available homes will feature upgrades such as Delta Windemere oil-rubbed bronze bath fixtures, wood flooring in the dining room, a custom faux-painted kitchen island and Mission-style interior trim and cabinetry.
“These are some of the lowest priced new homes in the Lee’s Summit area,” Monaco said. “The lots are the lowest you are going to pay in this area. Lots start at $24,950, so you get a bigger bang for your buck.”
Prices for two-story homes start in the $230,000s. With open main-level floor plans and standard features that incorporate the latest in decor trends, these homes are suited to meet and exceed the needs and wants of today’s buyer.
The homes at Foxberry Estates are packed with standard features that include custom alder wood cabinetry; oil-rubbed bronze door knobs and cabinet pulls, shower door frames and lighting fixtures; stained vanity cabinets; tiled floors in all bathrooms; hand-scraped wide plank wood flooring in all high-traffic areas including the entry, kitchen, breakfast room, mudroom and powder room; upgraded foundation vapor barrier; a custom enameled trim package; wrought-iron stair spindles; and a framed dressing mirror in the master closet.
In addition, every home built by Summit Custom Homes is independently inspected and awarded a HERS rating to document the home’s energy efficiency.
“Our average HERS is a 70, meaning our homes are about 30 percent more efficient than homes built to the energy code standard currently in effect,” said Kevin Stucker, vice president of sales and marketing for Summit Custom Homes.
Summit Custom Homes backs its homes with a one-year workmanship and material defect warranty, an extended two-year warranty covering the homes’ mechanical systems and a full 10-year warranty covering the homeowner against structural framing or foundation failures.
Foxberry Estates features a 4,800-square-foot clubhouse and pool with a zero-entry shallow end and mushroom-top sprayer. Children living in Foxberry attend Woodland Elementary, Pleasant Lea Middle School and Lee’s Summit High School, all part of the award-winning Lee’s Summit R-7 School District.
Foxberry Estates is conveniently located just south of the intersection of U.S. 50 and Missouri 7. Despite the fact that residents have excellent highway access, the community is a quiet, family-friendly area, Monaco said. Residents are within minutes of shopping, dining and entertainment, including the Chipman shopping area.
Prices: Starting in the $230,000s.
