Drummond Ranches in Prairie Village

There are three Drummond built ranches for sale in Prairie Village right now. (8.6.2009) Don Drummond was the builder who pioneered the modern style of architecture in Kansas City. Architect David B. Runnels worked with Drummond on most of the homes built in KC. When you walk into a ranch in Prairie Village, you know it's a Drummond by the quality of workmanship and the vaulted ceiling in the main living area.Though many builders emulated his style, you can feel the difference when it's a true Drummond.

7716 Chadwick, listed at $259,000, is a 3 bedroom, 2 bath boasting 1680 square feet which is a bit larger than the average 3/2 ranch in PV. The brick fireplace has that no-frills, modern look and the entire house has been updated with modern amenities. It's a dazzler!

2222 W 71st Terrace, listed at $229,000, is also a 3 bedroom, 2 bath built on a slab (no basement). It is smaller than the one on Chadwick by about 400 square feet but it has a pool! With temperatures headed in the high 90's starting tomorrow, this might be the preferred home.

4600 W 78th Street, listed at $225,000, is a 3 bedroom, 1 and 1/2 bath with 1040 square feet. It is triplex rather than a ranch, but has the look of a ranch from the road. To me, this is the most striking home from the outside.

Prairie Village is located just south of Mission Hills and west of State Line Rd. Originally PV was bounded by 67th and 71st streets; over the years it has expanded to encompass 6.2 square miles. After J.C. Nishols finished the Plaza and had a good start on the affluent residences in Mission Hills, he began developing Praire Village. This neighborhood, he envisioned, would allow people of modest means to afford a home.

Prairie Village Shopping Center, across from Indian Hills Country Club, was within walking distance of the earliest homes and people today still walk, bike and skateboard to the center. There are 2 other shopping centers within "The Village" as well as eleven (11) parks. The convenience of being so close to the Plaza, easy access to downtown, and preponderance of ranch homes makes Prairie Village a popular place to live.

Update 4/11/2014 I just heard about a Drummond ranch coming on this weekend! It's by Ward Parkway Mall; needs total rehab. Should be a good investment.
