When prospective homeowners explore Overland Ridge, one word comes to mind: unforgettable. From the architecturally distinct homes built by some of Kansas City’s most celebrated builders to community amenities that include lush landscaping and a fully equipped, resort-style swimming pool that will open in 2014, Overland Ridge gives homeowners a complete lifestyle experience that’s conveniently located in the heart of Kansas City’s thriving Northland.
The first of Overland Ridge’s four phases is coming to a close, and that means prospective buyers have unprecedented opportunities to purchase a home site at a reduced price.
“This is a great time to get into the community at a great value,” said Maria Mandacina, who markets the community with Linda Mandacina and Lynn Gambrell for RE/MAX Results.
A handful of home sites remain in the first phase, half of which are wooded, walkout locations that offer picturesque surroundings, the ideal complement to a newly built home. The marketing team said that anyone visiting the community immediately notices the ample space between each home, creating an airy, open atmosphere within the neighborhood.
Overland Ridge unites some of the area’s best home builders, including developer Don Julian Builders, Ernst Brothers Home Construction, Summit Custom Homes, Robertson Construction and New Mark Homes, all of which offer homes priced from the $290,000s to the $400,000s. And that means homeowners are not only assured of the quality of their homes, they also have a wide array of floor plans and architectural styles, giving them the opportunity to make the home of their dreams a reality.
Each builder brings a different element to the team, resulting in a range of styles, approaches and experience that give homeowners the true luxury of choice.
Overland Ridge’s developer, Don Julian, brings more than three decades of experience to the home-building industry, resulting in a reputation for craftsmanship, ingenuity and a passion for excellence.
New Mark Homes offers customer service and quality that frequently exceeds customer expectations.
Ernst Brothers Home Construction, led by Matt Ernst, pays particular attention to each home, enhancing the floor plan with thoughtful, custom touches that you can’t find elsewhere.
Robertson Construction offers cost-effective, fully appointed homes that are ideal for homeowners in the market for a true value.
And for buyers who are interested in reducing their environmental footprint and creating a green, energy-efficient home, Summit Custom Homes specializes in the Green Build Advantage, which combines energy efficiency, healthier indoor air quality and sustainable building practices.
The building team also prides itself on flexibility. Homeowners can be as involved in the process as they’d like, depending on their price point, time-line and other factors. For those looking to accommodate a faster move-in time-line, opt for a spec home that’s nearing completion. For homeowners interested in a more customized experience, they can work closely with the builder to create a carefully personalized home that seamlessly fits their needs and lifestyle.
When Roger and Nancy Lyngstad decided to purchase at Overland Ridge, they knew a spacious, fully equipped kitchen was a top priority. They selected the Tahoe ranch floor plan built by Matt Ernst of Ernst Brothers Home Construction, who made modifications to create the kitchen of the Lyngstads’ dreams. One example? Modifying the cabinets and granite counters to accommodate a Viking Dual Fuel stove, something Roger had always wanted.
“The minute we walked in we thought this would be a great house to have,” Roger said. “It just seemed to fit. The kitchen is the focal point. The living room, dining room and kitchen are open and very attractive to use for informal entertaining and everyday use.”
The homes are undeniably the stars at Overland Ridge, yet the community also offers other appealing features. A resort-style swimming pool complete with a large shallow area that’s ideal for children, seating coves, bench seats and spray jets will be open for the 2014 swim season.
Homes throughout Overland Ridge are accented by the community’s lush, treed surroundings, which the developer has made a commitment to preserve. Homeowners are also a short stroll away from the nearby Line Creek Walking Trail.
Located in Kansas City’s Northland off of Interstate 29 and 72nd Street, Overland Ridge is within minutes of the highway and the airport, as well as a diverse array of shopping, dining and services, including the Zona Rosa retail district.
Overland Ridge is served by the Park Hill School District with Chinn Elementary a block away.
