The Fairways of Ironhorse in Leawood

By  0 Comments

The developers of The Fairways of Ironhorse, the nation’s first premier Boutique Retirement Club™, in Leawood, Kansas, identified an opportunity for a different type of senior living community. Many baby boomers don’t require the types of medical and cognitive services offered by today’s independent living communities, which cater to an average age of 86. The concept’s creators saw a need for an option that appealed to a discerning set of energetic, active adults, just entering their retirement years and desiring the combination of life-enhancing amenities, beautifully designed smart suites, expansive views and a superior location with no buy-ins that The Fairways of Ironhorse provides.

New Concept
“In reality, today’s independent living looks like yesterday’s assisted living with a mixed population of functionality, receiving many types of health services. At The Fairways of Ironhorse, we appeal to the discriminating baby boomer who embraces more of a country club-style setting. They are more than ready to forgo the maintenance and upkeep of a home,” noted Bridget Snodgrass, partner and vice president of senior operations, Overland Property Group, also located in Leawood. “We provide a pampered lifestyle that results in even more independence because the staff caters to your every whim. From cooking and cleaning to chauffeur and concierge services, we’ve got you covered.”

Overland Property Group is building the live-in country club near 151st and Nall, which overlooks two fairways at Ironhorse Golf Course. Midwest Health, the operating partner for the development, will manage the club. This development is the first of its kind with more communities planned in the future. Construction is underway right now for the 72 suites that will be available for rent in the first quarter of 2019.

Flexible Choice
“What’s unique about The Fairways of Ironhorse is that we offer lavish suites to rent, but there’s no expensive buy-in. Most prestigious communities on the level of The Fairways of Ironhorse require a significant buy-in along with rent. With that expense, you lose flexibility such as moving to be with your children or accessing your assets, which ultimately limits your independence,” said Bridget. “Alternatively, the Boutique Retirement Club model will feature an annual lease, but you can break it with a 30-day notice if you need a higher level of care not provided on site.”

“Baby boomers have worked hard all their lives and have earned a wonderful lifestyle in their retirement years. We believe The Fairways of Ironhorse is providing this for a demographic that has been somewhat neglected and overlooked. You deserve to reap the benefits of the best in services offered at our Boutique Retirement Club. Retirement years should allow you to relish daily life at a country club or amazing resort while being pampered daily,” enthused Bridget.

Personal Enrichment
“We want to assist you in creating relationships and socialization, both vital to health and wellness as you age. Our club director is at your service, introducing you to new interests and hobbies. Maybe you’ll learn an instrument, take art classes or reach your personal fitness goals through our state-of-the-art HUR fitness equipment. We’re about providing an enriching and affluent lifestyle because you deserve it.”

At The Fairways of Ironhorse, the rent includes bi-weekly housekeeping and weekly flat linen services. Well-appointed suites start at just over $3,300 monthly and include meals in the elegant dining room or wine bar or at any local PB&J restaurant. PB&J is providing food and beverage service to The Fairways of Ironhorse. The company has a long history as a locally owned and operated restaurant company, featuring highly recognized food and service in the KC-metro for over 20 years. Gourmet chefs and experienced staff focus on creating a healthy way of eating by using local produce and local products, creatively crafted into delicious dishes.

Early Selection Benefits
The sales office at Overland Property Group is taking appointments for those interested in this unique lifestyle. Samples of cabinetry, flooring and countertops along with artist renderings of the three different décor packages are available for viewing. Bridget notes that for a limited time, you can select the décor you desire.

“Our suites are not cookie cutter. We’ve created unique floorplans to fit the ideal of a Boutique Retirement Club. When you walk through the door, it’s like you’ve checked into an amazing hotel that has a unique and appealing style of ambiance,” Bridget revealed. “We can cater events for you. We offer wine lockers, storage units and an indoor saltwater pool. We cater to the arts. We believe our clientele will appreciate the art and acting classes, educational forums, visits to the Kaufmann Center, events at the ballet, trips to Royals and Chiefs games and much more. Simply put, The Fairways of Ironhorse offers breathtaking views, delectable culinary delights, voice-activated smart suites, underground parking, valet, room service, spa treatments and the best in retirement living. It’s your move!”
