A Sense of Belonging Permeates
"This is a one of a kind” and “this is a must see” are phrases often used to describe New Longview. And these words only begin to tell the story of this vibrant community. On 260 historic acres on the west side of Lee’s Summit, it is just 20 minutes from the Plaza and Overland Park.

Enjoying a great mix of residents including young couples purchasing a first home, young families, single parents, and empty nesters, this “Traditional Neighborhood Design” community meets a variety of lifestyle needs with homes ranging from the $220’s to the $800’s. The majority of homes feature front porches and all are detailed in Craftsman, Colonial, Tudor, or Victorian architecture. Alleyways and carriage houses add to the charm. Inside, the floor plans are open and up-to-date with modern design touches like granite counters and linen tile in the bathroom. This is the chance to live in a home with the quality details of an older home and all of the advantages of a new one. With an aesthetic appeal not built since J.C. Nichols developed Brookside, the neighborhood provides easy daily living with its walkable lifestyle.

Combining classic Kansas City architecture with the magnificent beauty of the original R.A. Long estate, Gale Communities has transformed 100 year-old structures into usable community centers and landmarks. The developer is restoring and/or repurposing all of the remaining structures, including the award-winning Longview Farm Elementary School which was once world-renowned horsewoman, Loula Long Comb’s Show Horse Arena. Also adding to the ambiance of the community is the Longview Mansion, barns, water tower, and, of course, the original signature arches. Choices are abundant with over 1100 residences and 600,000 square feet of office and retail space planned along with parkland and conveniences inspired by a forward thinking vision.

Just over the original farm fence is the 5,000 acre Longview Lake Park. The park includes the 930 acre Longview Lake, Longview Horse Park, Fred Arbanas Golf Course, nature and bike trails, Frank White Jr. Softball Complex, picnic areas, a marina, camp grounds, and fishing. Add to that, New Longview’s more than 50 acres of parks and green space, tree-lined boulevards, walking and biking trails, and paths winding through the picturesque landscape, and residents have an abundance of outdoor options to explore. For those who enjoy the comforts of indoors, the ever-expanding commercial district offers restaurants, retail, and services to enrich their lives.
