The National welcomes you to the Fall Parade of Homes that runs Saturday through Oct. 12. The community’s marketing team is excited to be part of another Parade and have the ability to showcase what it considers to be the finest in maintenance-provided living in the Kansas City area with its Lime Stone Road Townomes.
The second phase is open and sales have been brisk, according to Chris Powell of Better Homes and Gardens Real Estate Kansas City Homes.
“When we opened the second phase late last year, we did not know what to expect, but we felt good about the product and its location,” Powell said. “You need to come see what everyone is buying and the difference that Lime Stone Road Townhomes offers.”
Potential buyers can get a rare chance to become part of this special community and take advantage of the spectacular views offered with second phase lots, according to developer FiveStar Lifestyles.

Lime Stone Road Townhomes is part of The National, a nationally recognized community in Parkville. It’s rolling terrain, breathtaking views, natural habitat, award-winning Park Hill School District and, of course, its two Tom Watson Signature golf courses are just a few reasons why The National stands apart from all other developments, the marketing team said.
A bonus to being part of the Lime Stone Road Townhomes is the active residents. They organize several parties each year with the help of the homeowner’s association. These parties, along with several resident gatherings throughout the year, keep this community in touch.
A convenience within minutes of the townhomes is Parkville Commons, a 250,000-square-foot retail center, whose shops offer basic necessities for the residents of The National. They can buy their groceries at Price Chopper, pick up dry cleaning at Pride Cleaners, find their everyday needs at Walgreen’s and dine at Nick-n-Jake’s, Rusty Horse Tavern, Jimmy John’s, Sakae Sushi and Pizza Hut. It is also home to the metropolitan area’s most active and vibrant health and wellness center, the Platte County Community Center/YMCA.
As you enter Lime Stone Road you will notice meticulous landscaping, white fences, Cape Cod architecture and well maintained exteriors. You feel a level of comfort, knowing as an owner you never have to take time out of your life to paint your home, repair the roof, fix/clean gutters, mow, mulch, trim, fertilize or even remove snow from your sidewalks and driveways.
The landscaping and exterior finishes are just the beginning. Walk in the front door and you will see quality throughout, the marketing team said. You will be surprised at the high ceilings, large expanse of windows, efficient living spaces with the kitchen, great room and master suite on one level. The townhomes feature custom cabinetry, granite counter tops, screened-in porches, hardwood floors, oversized garages and GE appliance packages.
One such couple who took advantage of everything Lime Stone Road Townhomes has to offer are Bob and Sue Martin. It took them a few years and a circuitous route to move to the Lime Stone Road Townhomes, but they are happy their journey ended there.
“My wife works for Cerner and several years ago, they wanted the executives to move to Kansas City,” Bob Martin said.
The Martins enjoy the small-town atmosphere of Parkville and the serenity of the Lime Stone Road Townhomes.
“We wanted to live somewhere that we never had to worry about when we left for vacation, work or just a quick get-away and LimeStone Road townhomes gave us this ability,” Sue Martin said. “To leave without worrying about getting the lawn mowed or the snow shoveled is the way to enjoy life.”
And they added since they no longer have to maintain their yard, they are saving money. “People just don’t realize how much it costs to own and maintain lawn equipment or a snow blower.”
“Parkville is just such a great town,” Bob Martin said. “It’s kind of a hidden secret. It is quiet up here and we see deer and wild turkey all the time. Our townhome overlooks the Deuce and we have great views of the golf course.”
In fact, they joined The National Golf Club of Kansas City, where they have easily made friends. The maintenance-provided aspect of the Lime Stone Road Townhomes was a bonus.
Powell, who markets the townhomes for Better Homes and Gardens Real Estate Kansas City Homes, said with prices starting at about $300,000 coupled with historically low interest rates, the Lime Stone Road Townhomes offer an unprecedented opportunity for those who want to experience The National’s active resort lifestyle.
