Since its beginning in 1989, Winterset, the award-winning master development of 1,200 acres, has continued a mission to protect and preserve the natural environment while building a reputation as one of Lee’s Summit’s Elite communities. Each of the five neighborhoods have been built on a reputation of perfection in community development and precision in community association management, capped off with the touches of love and respect for the more than 1,000 families that have chosen to call Winterset home.
Winterset Valley is characterized by a wide array of home styles situated amid natural terrains and gently winding roadways. A massive 315-acre “mini” neighborhood with 300-plus single-family homes. This gem has proven to be an ongoing success amongst those wishing to provide a greater quality of life for the family.
“The 30th Phase in Winterset Valley features 53 executive home sites with home starting at $400,000 plus. The Phase opened last fall and is expected to be completed by next spring,” said Kurt Lutz, onsite agent with Better Homes and Gardens, along with Leslie Marshall and Susie Zammar-Gale.
Winterset Valley has a unique neighborhood feeling. The layout of the community has been impressing visitors since its opening. Quality homes and impeccable design combined with a wide array of amenities for everyone from the very young to the active empty nester are important contributing factors to Winterset's history of sustained growth and increasing home values.
Winterset is the Midwest's only recipient of the coveted Global Releaf Certification recognized for its pioneering tree protection, tree planting program, and sensitive land planning by the Arbor Day Foundation, the National Association of Home Builders and American Forests.
With the westside location and amenities like Winterset's five miles of walking trails, three community pools & recreation areas, lighted tennis courts, two fishing lakes, a Community Center and active community association, the five neighborhoods of Winterset have become the upper bracket community of choice in western Lee's Summit.” Homes begin in the $400's and span to over $1.5M.
Home buyers can choose from a wide variety of premier home sites, nearly half overlooking treed nature areas, walk-out, daylight, and flat sites. Here your dream home can back to the privacy of heavily wooded terrain that has not been touched for well over a century, if ever. And they are nestled within the "100-Acre Wood," an old-growth forest that connects to the extensive Winterset walking trail system.
”This is the largest phase we’ve done in the past six years,”said David Gale, President of Gale Communities, Inc. “This is a bigger phase and it offers more choices to the customer. We have walkouts, daylight home sites and the standard for those who do not desire a walkout.”
More than half of the home sites have already been sold. Currently there are four furnished models and five speculative homes available or are under construction by six of the area’s most experienced and respected builders; SAB Homes, Signature Builders, James Engle Custom Homes, JFE Construction, Pfeifer Homes and Gale Home Builders.
“Our builders construct homes metro-wide and are very customer responsive,” Gale says. “That is critically important to maintaining the quality of our community.”
Winterset Valley offers residents a variety of amenities, featuring several outdoor activities designed to make the most of the beautiful, wooded surroundings, including three neighborhood pools, community center, tennis courts, over 5 miles of walking trails, fishing lakes, several designated parks as well as numerous ”pocket parks” and several butterfly gardens. Two of the three community pools are geared specifically for children, with zero entry slopes and water park features. All of this sits just a short bicycle ride away from over 5,000 acres of parkland in Longview Lake Park.
A big benefit of living in Winterset Valley is that residents are 20 minutes from downtown Kansas City, The Plaza, and Overland Park. Known as Lee’s Summit, Missouri’s upper bracket westside, Winterset Valley truly is the executive choice. Resident children attend highly rated Lee’s Summit Schools including Cedar Creek Elementary, Summit Lakes Middle School and Lee’s Summit West High School. West High has earned a Silver Designation by U.S. News & World Reports as well as Blue Ribbon status as one of the 10 best high schools.
