I stopped by the model home in Valley Creek Crossing, a nice single family development in Shakopee just south of highway 169 about 1 mile. The home was a gorgeous two story with about 2,850 sqft on the upper two floors and the home had a large unfinished walkout basement ready for anyone’s finishing touches.
Lennar purchased all of the remaining lots that Cuddigan,one of the original builders in the development, owned in Valley Creek Crossing. Lennar is currently is offering six different models with varying front elevations to choose from. Their price point according to their website is $322,990-$371,990 with sqft on the upper two levels ranging from 2,701-3,075 sqft. Lenner did not skip on minimum square footage requirements per the covenants like some cheaper builder do. They really are putting out a quality product with great curb appeal.
What I like about the Valley Creek Crossing development is that it’s not in the middle of a farm field where they plopped down lot after and all the homes look the same. There are probably close to twelve builders within the development and there was an artitechual committee to help keep up the standards and look of the neighborhood. Some of these artitechual standards include have a natural material on the front of the house such as brick, stone, or hardiplank. So many of the homes in the development look different and there is a good mix of ramblers, two story homes, modified two stories and probably less than five multi-level split homes throughout the development.
The Valley Creek Crossing neighborhood has a park with multiple sets of equipment for kids of all ages, sidewalks to help keep the kiddos safe and there is even a creek that runs through the neighborhood. The original farmstead in which the land that was used to build out the development still resides by the Marschall family, long time Shakopee residents who can be seen walking on occasion. A larger park with hockey rink and basketball court is a short distance away and you can take the sidewalk all the way there.
Shopping is very close as Target, Cub Food and many other store are within 1.5 miles. Centrally localated, Valley Creek Crossing in Shakopee is close to almost any school and currently is in the Pearson Elementary school district, however new school lines will be drawn for the 2011-12 school year with the new addition of an elementary school this fall.
