Growth in western Shawnee continues apace.
The eighth and final phase of the upscale Greens of Chapel Creek subdivision, built around the Shawnee Golf & Country Club in the western part of the city, is moving forward after the Shawnee City Council approved the subdivision’s final plat.
The plat contains 30 single-family residential lots and five landscape tracts on 10.45 acres in the 6600 block of McCormick Drive. The council unanimously approved the final plat at its Monday night meeting.
Home prices in the subdivision range from $400,000 to $700,000, said Bob Sloan, a community manager for Rodrock & Associates Realtors LLC, the brokerage company for the subdivision’s owner, Chapel Creek Partners LLC. Homes in the subdivision range from 2,650 square feet to more than 4,000 square feet.
The first homes in Greens of Chapel Creek went on sale in 2003. Chapel Creek Partners bought the subdivision around 2007, after the real estate crash.
The subdivision currently has 188 homes that have been sold; and 11 homes, 41 open lots and four new model homes for sale, he said.
Tom Langhofer, general manager of Chapel Creek Partners, couldn’t be reached for comment about when groundbreaking and completion of the final phase are scheduled, and the cost of the final construction phase.
The Shawnee Golf & Country Club is a 27-hole championship golf course designed by Lyndy Lindsey. From the Greens of Chapel Creek’s description on its website:
“Golf-course lots are popular for a variety of reasons—the desire to be surrounded by rolling green space (that you don’t have to tend yourself), the appeal of increased privacy, or simply the quiet respite nature provides—so such lots go for a premium in most neighborhoods. But to have an entire community built around a thriving course, with the chance to build the house of your dreams on such exceptional lots? That’s a rare opportunity in and of itself.”
The subdivision has a variety of single-family, two-story homes; and story-and-a-half and reverse story-and-a-half homes, according to the website. The homes have been built by several builders, including James Engle Custom Homes, Hilmann Home Building, Prieb Homes, James III Homes and Dream and Design Building.
The Shawnee Planning Commission approved the subdivision’s final plat at its Jan. 3 meeting, advancing it to the city council.
