Documents filed with the federal bankruptcy court handling the Chapter 11 proceedings of Homestead Country Club reveal that the club intends to sell the front six acres of its property to Evan-Talan Homes, a Leawood-based custom home builder.
Childress said the company would likely build ten to 12 homes on the land, but that he couldn’t predict when they might be ready to break ground.
“There is a potential lengthy legal process to go through as part of this process with Homestead and the bankruptcy court and there is also approval from the city for the proposed development,” he said. “Impossible to guess at when all of this might transpire. Once we are at that point I would guess that we would start homes immediately and the average home would take 12 months for completion. We just can’t predict when each home would start.”
Evan-Talan has built and remodeled several homes in Prairie Village, Fairway and Mission Hills recently. The Homestead land sale must be approved by the bankruptcy court.
