Situated on picturesque rolling terrain just one mile west of Interstate 435 on 95th Street/Prairie Star Parkway in Lenexa, the residential community of Cottonwood Canyon is experiencing a welcome growth spurt.
360 Partners with RE/MAX Heartland, Realtors
To date, about a dozen homeowners call the community home and another five lots have been sold with custom build-jobs under construction. When fully completed, there will be 125 homes.
According to agent-broker Angie Ripley, who markets the property along with Janet Swinson with RE/MAX Heartland, it’s the peaceful setting and ambiance that attracts many buyers here.
“When people come out here for the first time, I tell them the most unique feature is that with the exception of a few, all of our lots back up to beautiful expanses of green space, the lakes or the greens of the Golf Club of Kansas. There is no other community in Kansas City offering this type of environment.”
The stunning Golf Club of Kansas, which only a few years ago was ranked among Golfweek magazine’s “Best New Courses,” is a big draw for avid golfers. However, those not interested in golf still enjoy the same picturesque ambiance.
“Usually developers try to maximize as much of the land space as possible, so many of their homes back up to other homeowners,” Ripley explained. “But that is not the case here at Cottonwood Canyon. That is why we have several homeowners who are simply in awe of all the beauty the community has to offer and want to take advantage of this wonderful lifestyle amenity, whether they golf or not.”
Another noteworthy amenity is that Cottonwood Canyon is a maintenance-provided community where the $150 monthly homeowner’s association dues cover complete lawn care, snow removal and trash removal.
Future development will include walking trails, a pool and cabana, and picnic area, which will bestow an even greater sense of community and appeal.
Cottonwood Canyon encompasses two different residential options: The Lake and The Village. Prospective buyers can find homes in The Lake ranging from $600,000 to over $1 million, and homes in The Village from $400,000 and up.
From the beginning, Cottonwood Canyon has always sought excellence in choosing the area’s most well-known builders, contractors and architects to ensure only the best materials and building practices are used.
Current builders and architects constructing spec homes and custom build-jobs here include B. L. Rieke Custom Homes, Starr Homes and Fuller Construction. Outside builders are also permitted upon approval and several of the homes here were featured in this year’s Fall Parade of Homes.
Cottonwood Canyon’s convenient location is just one mile west of Interstate 435 on 95th Street/Prairie Star Parkway in Lenexa, 20 minutes from Kansas City International airport, 30 minutes from downtown Kansas City, 10 minutes from College Boulevard and 25 minutes from Lawrence.
In 2011, Kansas City Homes & Gardens magazine presented two Gold Awards to Cottonwood Canyon. The residential component of the development won for “Best New Community” and B.L. Rieke Custom Homes for “Best Model Home $750,000 to $1 million.” A Silver Award was received by Starr Homes for “Best Empty Nest.”
