Rated 5 out of 5?by Frankie Peaceful
I have lived here in a newly renovated 2 BR/2BR for weeks now. The neighborhood is really nice and fairly quite. The landscaping is pretty good, but there are so many trees it feels very suburban. The apartment has high ceilings, wood flooring in entry, kitchen, and baths, thicker wider shades over the windows, bronze faucets and light fixtures, and faux granite counter tops, new appliances, a fireplace, walk-in closets, a balcony with storage, and generously sized bedrooms.
I moved here from a different apartment community further north in overland park. I'm glad that I moved. Not only is this place affordable but I would say the value for the money at Lexington Farms is definitely worth considering for your new home!

Most of the appliances are old and they get repaired very often. From stove top burner ,dishwasher, washer and dryer. We have to call them often to get things done. Not 1 time is enough.

There are some things I really like about our apartment here, but the kitchen is NOT one of them. For a family of three, it is ridiculously small, and it's a complete joke that the company calls their kitchens "gourmet" in their literature. The appliances all seem to be el cheapo models, and the washer and dryer they provide are about 15 years old. The oven does not have a self-cleaning setting, but the refrigerator does have an ice maker, so at least there's that. Maintenance is usually prompt and always courteous in fixing things. Our apartment has a southwestern exposure, so the electric bills are obscenely high in summer, even after we bought and installed thermal draperies on all the windows. Sometimes I wonder if these buildings have any insulation in them at all, though they don't seem that drafty in the wintertime. I love the location of our apartment, and the rest of the space (except for the kitchen and laundry room) is really quite comfortable for us.

The space and location were great. The noise was unbearable. I could clearly hear the neighbors above and below me at all hours. If you get quiet neighbors you'll be fine...mine were not!

If you want to be in south Johnson county, this is your cheapest option, other than a couple of really old places. We've been here for 1.5 yrs, and are leaving to move out of state. When we signed on, there was a different manager and better office staff. M:ke is the only remaining person in the office that genuinely seems to care. The maintenance staff used to immediately fix problems, now they show if your lucky. We've lived in 2 different buildings in the complex, and if you want a quieter area, live in the back of the complex. A lot of families, and relatively quiet. Construction is cheap, so now that we have someone above us, the place rattles and it sounds like stomping every time they walk. Pick a top floor apt! Tenants are required to thoroughly clean before they move out (itemized charge list is handed out), but both of our apartments needed cleaning when we moved in. All in all, compared to the many places I've lived over the years, this still gets a 4/5, since it's a good amount of space/storage for the money, great location, and relatively quiet.
