The first glimpse of Cedar Creek will astound you, in every way. Since its inception in 1989, you’ll notice nothing has been left undone, from big and small details that have been built in, to the romance and charm, to the lovely homes in this unique living community.
When Matt and Rachelle Hirsch decided to buy a new home, they were already familiar with Cedar Creek but hadn’t spent much time in the community. After they drove through the lush, inviting
surroundings, they fell in love with the neighborhood—and the rest, as they say, was history.
“It’s just a beautiful place,” Matt exclaimed. Three newly opened neighborhoods give you all the fodder you need to imagine yourself here. Literally, every evening and weekend become a vacation with all the amenities available for you and your family.
The community’s extensive, resort-style amenities package is the perfect antidote to hectic school and work schedules. Spend time in one of two swimming pools, enjoy a sunset stroll around the 65-acre Shadow Lake or gather friends and family for a round at the award-winning, 18-hole Shadow Glen Golf Club. Homeowners also have access to a free-form swimming pool, four lighted tennis courts, a second swimming pool in the Southglen neighborhood, jogging and walking trails, the Swim & Racquet Club and an indoor gymnasium that’s equipped for basketball, volleyball, aerobics and a performance stage.
Ken Rosberg, President and Supervising Broker, Cedar Creek Realty, LLC, is aptly nicknamed “Mr. Cedar Creek.” He related, “As one of the most sought-after places to live, Cedar Creek was designed with style, value and tranquility in mind, offering a unique living environment not found elsewhere in Johnson County. The dramatic architectural style artfully blends with the community’s sprawling acres of rolling hills, limestone bluffs, treed valleys, tranquil lakes and undisturbed greenspace. Home buyers will find an abundant and varied selection of gorgeous home settings including walkouts, daylights and flat home sites.”
Every builder who builds here feels a sense of family. “There’s an exclusivity that comes with Cedar Creek, but at the same time, you can live there in the $400,000s,” reflected Steve Trued of Tabernacle Homes. “It’s not one of those neighborhoods that’s simply out of reach. Our feeling is that a home is important to a family, whether it’s their first home or their dream home. We’re not stuck in just one price range.

Cedar Creek is open to approved builders, however, new homeowners could be better served to utilize the talents of their team of featured builders, who are experienced in dealing with the natural wooded and rolling terrain, site requirements and architectural details of this locale. They also work closely with their buyers to design a custom-built home that fits the topography and blends in with the natural beauty.
Cedar Creek is served by the Olathe School District, including Olathe West High School, Mission Trail Junior High School, and Cedar Creek Elementary School. The community is also within close proximity to St. James Academy Catholic High School. To visit Cedar Creek, take K-10 to the Cedar Creek Parkway exit, then go south by the stone and waterfall entrance and the neighborhood’s natural beauty to the sales center located in the beautiful clubhouse.
