As Weichert Realtors Showcase Homes makes a name for itself in Eastern Jackson County, so are the new homes being built at Cardinal Woods West.
Thirty-nine lots located in Blue Springs will soon be a maintenance-provided community under the construction of Landmark Builders. Owner Greg Andachter, who earned his reputation as a trend-setting builder beginning in 1985, has had great success with the original Cardinal Woods that quickly sold out in 2002.
Combining a great location with well constructed homes that can also include a universal design, Angie Shadduck, broker for Weichert Realtors is excited to introduce the new subdivision that will be built on top of a plateau.
"We are taking contracts now for the homes in the new Cardinal Woods West," Shadduck said. "These luxury villas will include walk-out basements, (removed- Changed) and amenities such as snow removal, trash service and lawn care."
The universal design elements that can easily be implemented into the homes include levers on doors instead of doorknobs, eliminating steps at the entrance and having 18" high toilets instead of the standard 15 inch.
According to Shadduck, Universal Designs are not being implemented because the homes are for being built for only those that are physically challenged, it¹s so the house can age as gracefully as it¹s occupants. (I think this ought to be removed, it doesn't make much sense to me)
Cardinal Woods West is centrally located with easy access to the new Center Point Hospital, Independence Center, the new Bass Pro Shop coming soon, as well as just minutes away from major grocery stores.
The two bedroom, two bath and three bedroom two bath homes will all be ranch style either in a traditional floor plan or contemporary open design.
"Weichert Realtors will help homebuyers every step of the way," Shadduck said. "From picking the lot, to the floor plan to the interior design. We can customize any home."
Baby boomers, while searching for a home that will fit their needs, after stepping away from their fast-paced lifestyle, are finding that maintenance provided homes are a good fit.
As they enter into this chapter of their lives ‹ entertaining, neighborhood block parties and relaxation begin to take top priority.
Landmark Builders and Weichert Realtors have stepped up to the plate and are building subdivisions that not only offer convenience but safety features.
Landmark uses a method called double wall construction that provides a thicker barrier between homeowners and the outside elements as well as top-of-the-line insulation and house wrap.
Smoke detectors are hard wired in every bedroom in addition to the entry level as well as exterior penetrations being foamed and caulked.
The villas will also include a sprinkler system, cultured marble vanity tops, garage door openers, and 10-foot ceilings in entry, great room and formal dining area.
"We¹re not calling Cardinal Woods or Cardinal Woods West a retirement community because it¹s not," Shadduck said. "It¹s intended for the empty nesters who want to begin this phase of their life in a home that will allow them the freedom to enjoy themselves."
