March 9, 2023

Kansas City, Mo. – March 2023 – New home builder and land developer, Summit Homes, a Berkshire Hathaway affiliate, announced Bailey Farms, a new community coming to Lee’s Summit. Summit Homes is bringing new life to a long legacy in Lee's Summit. The Bailey Farms grounds is located on the southwest corner of Ranson and Bailey Road and the farmland will be developed into a community that will serve Lee's Summit residents for years to come. 

Summit plans on celebrating Bailey Farm’s rich history by building a flagship home that will serve as a living legacy poised to embrace the next chapter as the surrounding area continues to evolve. A timeless fresh face for this cornerstone home, named after Hazel Bailey, will embrace the charm and stature of the original farmhouse by incorporating key architectural elements of the original Prairie School aesthetic. The Summit Homes team is excited to be part of building the next chapter in the story of Bailey Farms. 

The Bailey family reached out saying, “We understand that the foundation and other aspects of the original home were beyond repair. We fully endorse building an updated version of the farmhouse that both recognizes the past and incorporates modern, desirable features. We are so grateful for the effort and expense Summit Homes has put into the design of the new farmhouse. Maintaining many of the distinctive architectural features and colors goes far beyond anything we could have ever expected. Summit Homes’ approach to developing this property in a way that acknowledges the history of the farm while creating a new community is commendable.” 

Alongside the flagship home, Summit Homes will create a destination community that will honor the location's history while creating a community that feels authentic and welcoming to residents. Bailey Farms will offer single-family, multi-family and maintenance provided homes in the desirable Lee’s Summit location. The three-phase project will bring over 200 new residences to Ranson Road, just minutes from downtown Lee’s Summit.  

Home buyers will enjoy a 3-acre community amenities site that will include a pool with a slide, clubhouse, playground, sports courts, and walking trails. Within the clubhouse, the homeowners will have access to additional amenities including co-working space and conference room benefitting remote and hybrid workers, lounge, and on-site gym. 

“This community will be something special,” said Brad Kempf, Vice President of Land and Development at Summit Homes. “The incorporation of the history of the farm into the plan for the new community is a testament to Summit Homes' dedication to creating unique and special communities. It reflects the commitment of Summit to developing communities that are not just homes, but places where families can truly thrive.”

Summit Homes understands the importance of community and takes great pride in working with local officials and residents to support the goals of Lee’s Summit. By doing so, Bailey Farms will become a destination community for families looking for a place to call home because of its convenient location, beautiful homes, top-notch amenities, and history of Bailey Farms.
