Welcome to the Hottest Community in Johnson County

The Streets are Getting Dirty!...

It’s a Wonderful Thing!


The familiar sights and sounds of construction—hammers, saws, lumber and of foundations going in the ground—is now commonplace at Granite Falls

A select group of the area’s finest builders are taking advantage of this exciting opportunity, and are building new custom and speculative homes in this upscale, revitalized community.

Now is the perfect time to buy or build a new home; and judging by the activity at Granite Falls, the secret of the community’s complete turn-around is out. Hard work, knowledge, experience and the commitment to make Granite Falls a success has resulted in the community’s renaissance and the substantial increase in activity.

In January of 2011 when Weichert, Realtors Graham-Welch, LLC began its “extreme makeover”of the community, Granite Falls consisted of just eight (8) residences. Now, in a little over a year-and-a-half, all but approximately 36 of the 72 total homesites are spoken for and being built out very quickly.

Granite Falls is a quiet haven conveniently close to all that Johnson County has to offer, yet removed from its hustle and bustle. The community’s prominent entry with its sparkling, splashing waterfall, offers the first sense of distinction while setting the stage for artfully crafted and finely appointed homes.

Granite Falls’ convenient location means residents are close to the area’s finest shopping, dining, entertainment and recreational opportunities, including two nearby Aquatic Centers. The community is served by the Award-Winning Shawnee Mission School District.

Shawnee, Kan., is a great place to live, work and play. Shawnee offers a balance of upscale living with small town appeal. Here, residents enjoy the convenience of large city amenities and a friendly, hometown atmosphere where natural beauty abounds. In 2010, Shawnee was ranked #17 on Money Magazine's list of "Best Places to Live" in America, and was lauded for its affordable housing, air quality index and median commute time.

Homebuyers continue to be drawn to the casual elegance that permeates the landscape of Shawnee and to the extraordinary homes of Granite Falls that are unmatched in both quality and value. Now is the time to join Granite Falls on the path of success with extraordinary homes ranging from the $375,000s to $450,000. The momentum is building faster and a new fresh energy has emerged within this beautiful community.

Get away from it all, but still be close enough to enjoy it. There are plenty of great reasons to hurry out to Granite Falls and experience the excitement all this activity has created. Builders and homebuyers are reserving their sites and buying homes at an incredible pace. Don’t be left behind.

The proximity of I-435, K-10 and K-7 highways to Granite Falls puts nearby attractions -- The Legends, Kansas Speedway, Schlitterbahn and the rest of the best of the Metro area -- only minutes away. Granite Falls is exclusively marketed by Weichert, Realtors Graham-Welch, LLC. and is located just minutes east of I-435 on Johnson Drive.
