Like so many Kansas City neighborhoods, the Chaumiere area has a park-like atmosphere. A pretty little lake extends along North East 43rd Terrace in this area of gently rolling hills. The homes here are mostly single story ranch and split-levels, on large, well-shaded lots.
Along the boundary streets of North East Antioch Road, I-35, and Chouteau Trafficway, are the essential services that make a suburban neighborhood easy to live in: a grocery story, day care center, and several churches. Kansas City North community Center is on the west side. No less than five parks surround Chaumiere area, all no more than a mile away. At least five more are only a bit further, including Waterworks Park with its Disc Golf Course, and Macken Park, with ball fields, walking trails, and summer concerts.
The neighborhood is centrally located and with easy access to many other attractions and activities. Just north of Chaumiere are several shopping centers, golf courses, William Jewell College, and Maple Hills Community College. All are easily accessed by I-35.
To the east of Chaumiere are Worlds of Fun and Oceans of Fun. In the nearby towns of Liberty and Kearney are several of Clay County’s top historic sites: Jesse James Farm and Museum, the Jesse James Bank, and Liberty Jail.
North west of the neighborhood are Kansas City International Airport, Smithville Lake, The Kansas Speedway, and the newest and largest retail area, anchored by Cabela’s and other major stores. The casino riverboats are only a few miles south.
All the well-known attractions of Kansas City are a short drive south. This includes Royals Baseball and Chiefs Football, the new entertainment and nightlife area known as the Power and Light District, the Plaza, and major museums and art galleries.
