TOP VILLA 2021
Jim Lambie is the kind of builder who responds to his clients’ needs, designs the home to their specifications and creates the living space of their dreams. If you desire a home that goes beyond the ordinary and is not just a home but a veritable masterpiece, then Lambie Custom Homes, stands ready to assist as one of the leading custom home builders in the metro area that can bring your unique custom home dream to fruition. With 43 years in the home building industry, owner Jim Lambie, an award-winning Master Builder, has welcomed thousands of happy clients home.
Not just a builder of custom homes, Lambie also wears many additional hats: visionary, creative thinker, strategist, and humble yet driven entrepreneur. He is the true epitome of Einstein’s quote, “Creativity is intelligence having fun.” The homes he designs and builds reflect unique character, style and personality, each one a show-stopper in and of themselves.
To celebrate Lambie’s reputation as an award-winning builder, Kansas City Homes & Style is excited to present Lambie Custom Homes with the distinction of Top Villa of 2021 for this year’s exclusive Top Homes section. The attention to detail and design, paired with a functional layout, made this villa worthy of such a prestigious designation.
While humility is an integral part of Lambie’s character, he emphasized his appreciation for this award, which only serves to strengthen his passion to continue the tradition of excellence in service and products for which he is widely known. This is not just a business for Lambie. It is a lifestyle, one dedicated to bringing each and every client the lifestyle they desire as they begin the process of building not just a home, but a lasting legacy.
“We build many villas in all price ranges,” he noted. “They are popular designs for those who are empty nesters or downsizing but still want the nice amenities and luxury finishes but in a smaller space.”
One such example of Lambie’s distinguished portfolio is this 2,600 square foot villa located in the Enclave at Cedar Pointe in Leawood, Kansas. Known as the Ashberry Plan, this haven features two bedrooms on the first level and two on the lower level, along with three full bathrooms in total.
Boasting a beautiful and functional open floor plan, not one square foot of space is wasted. This attractive villa has everything indicative of the distinct and legendary style of a Lambie custom home.
“Owners now want all of those nice touches along with a more efficient use of space,” noted Lambie, who indicated in the past most of the lower levels remained unfinished. In recent years, however, homeowners desire a finished space to incorporate more bedrooms and living/entertainment areas to enjoy time with extended family and friends.
Not just a finished basement, these lower levels present as a seamless transition of the main level, with the same attention to detail, quality, craftsmanship and style. This particular model balances the perfect equation of all the right touches and finishes: ceramic tile, hardwood, carpet, quartz countertops, faux stone appointments, enclosed patio, and a spacious walk-in pantry. The vaulted ceiling in the kitchen, accented with a wooden beam, invites a more spacious feeling, and the center island, crafted like a distinguished piece of furniture, incorporates the luxury touch. This particular model comes with a two-car garage, but depending on the lot, Lambie can install a third bay if desired.
In addition to this community, Lambie is also building in Red Bridge Greens in Kansas City, Missouri; the Enclave at Prairie Star in Lenexa; the Metcalf Villas in Overland Park; the Cottages at the Wilderness in Overland Park; Prairiefire Villas in Overland Park; and in Meadowbrook Village in Prairie Village.
Deciding to build a home with Lambie Custom Homes is more than just a monumental decision. It is an opportunity … an opportunity to celebrate living the way you always dreamed you could.
