Lakewood, Lee’s Summit, MO
Lakewood is a well established, master planned community surrounding a beautiful lake that continues to be a huge drawing card to Lee’s Summit. This community is centrally located just off 291 Hwy very near I70 Hwy. This large community has a population of 2200 and was developed around a 365 acre lake. This neighborhood is within the Lee’s Summit and Blue Springs School Districts. As a general rule, much of the newer housing falls into the Blue Springs Schools but there are some exceptions. Price ranges in this community range from the $200,000’s to $3 million. In the older area of Lakewood, is not unusual to see homes in the $200,000’s at the beginning of a street and go to $ 1 million by the time you are at the end of a street on a cul-de-sac with a premium lake lot. In newer areas, pricing stays a little more consistent on streets. As a long time resident of Lakewood, I can testify, “It was a great place to live and grow up in. There was always something to do at the lake and a place where friends and family came to enjoy the lifestyle with us. You feel an “extra energy” when you live in such an active community.” – Renee Amey
Enjoy a leisurely ride on your pontoon, sail boat, or kayak on the lake at Lakewood. This lake is a “no-wake” lake but one that you can really take in the beauty of the lake and the surrounding homes with beautifully treed, landscaped lots. For those who want to take it easy on a Sunday afternoon, a pontoon tie-up with some neighbors is a great option at Lakewood. A sandy beach is located just behind the main clubhouse which is a popular gathering point to swim.
