Proactive organizations constantly look for ways to grow and improve. As we prepare to celebrate Lakeview Village’s 50th anniversary of service to the greater community, what better time to announce some exciting plans for the future?
Starting later this month, you will notice bulldozers tearing down the garden cottage at 9017 Salem Circle to make room for a brand-new home style called the Patio Home.
This 1,565 sq. ft. duplex will fill a gap between our largest original cottages–measuring 1,300-1,400 sq. ft.–and the villas, which start at 1,860 sq. ft. Over the years, we have enlarged existing four-plexes into beautiful and spacious duplexes, but this is the first time since the villas that Lakeview has started with an empty lot for new homes.
This Patio Home represents the best practices in “green” construction and design, as well as being a size home that fills an underserved niche in retirement community housing.
The new style features a modern exterior with siding and brick, as well as lots of windows to maximize the angle of the sun. This fully accessible home offers a two-car garage, two bedrooms and a den/office, a spacious rear patio, and an optional basement finish. The open floor plan includes vaulted ceilings in the living and dining rooms, hardwood floors, and a gourmet eat-in kitchen with solid quartz countertops.
We will be launching the Patio Homes at several Marketing events beginning this month. If you have friends who might be interested in learning more, please call us at 913-744-2449.
In addition, you are invited to attend an Open House of our furnished model homes of all sizes on Thursday, March 6 from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. for Lakeview residents and staff. These newly renovated apartments and cottages are in Heritage Place, Gardenview, Northpointe, and the Garden Cottages. A bus will be available starting at Heritage Place at 11 a.m. and traveling to all eight models. Or you may wish to walk to selected homes within each building or make the trip by car. A list of the homes will be posted in the elevators and on Channel 4 in advance. We hope to see you there!
