Prospective homebuyers today got their first look at plans for the much-anticipated Inverness, a new home community in development by three St. Louis home builders, featuring Payne Family Homes.

On Friday, November 8, featured floor plans and base pricing was released for Inverness, an expansive master-planned development to be located on 106 acres near the intersection of Bryan and Feise roads in Dardenne Prairie. This land is considered one of the most coveted tracts of land in St. Charles County. 

Designed for 266 homesites, Inverness will showcase a meandering trail system connecting to various enclaves; landscaped roundabouts and islands; distinctive monuments, some with pedestrian arches; four lakes; extensive common ground and pocket parks; and a variety of product lines to choose from.

“The community has been especially receptive to this project,” said Ken Kruse, President of Payne Family Homes. “We are very excited to bring an expanded offering of new home construction to Dardenne Prairie.”

A unique element of the Inverness site plan, variable building setbacks will enhance the homes’ curb appeal and further emphasize the community’s open, park-like ambience. Development of the first phase is in progress and an all-new display model is now under construction.

Inverness will offer buyers the best of everything including a convenient location, top-quality construction, modern amenities, green space, a quality school district and a 12-month social membership to nearby Lake Forest Country Club.

Beyond its prime location and planned amenities, Payne Family Homes at Inverness will offer future residents a distinctive collection of ranch, 1.5-story, and 2-story designs from its acclaimed Lifestyle I & II Series, encompassing 1,627 to 3,388 square feet.

Inverness is scheduled to open for pre-sales starting November 23rd. While the new model home is under construction, interested home buyers are invited to visit the temporary sales office in the nearby Cordoba luxury villa community at 102 Alta Mira Court, Dardenne Prairie, 63368.
