Over 150 years ago, people from all walks of life were drawn westward in search of hope and prosperity. These were the pioneers. Now, people of all ethnicities and all different backgrounds are settled here, creating the uniquely diverse community it is today. Times have changed since the pioneers first arrived, but the spirit of Welcome Home continues to thrive at Painted Prairie. Today, this is where prairie meets city and urban meets suburban. Where you find the balance of indoor and outdoor getaways, all in a safe and secure neighborhood. Where diversity and inclusion — of people, of ideas, of architecture — are of the utmost importance. The belief here is simple. When neighbors become your friends, you elevate life for all. And when you’re a creator of community — a place to call home — you’re a part of something great, something bigger than yourself. These values, these ideals — this is Painted Prairie.

Neo-Traditional in Nature
Neo-traditional philosophy pairs a revival of traditional styles and ways of life with the best current technology, elements, and influences. From modern homes inspired by historical architecture to eco-friendly parks designed for optimal pedestrian connectivity and streetscapes that focus on the front porch, Painted Prairie embodies the neo-traditional ideal.
