Judging by the brisk and continuous sales activity at Canyon Ridge, it’s safe to say that the word is out about Johnson County’s best-kept secret. After a groundbreaking in May 2015 introduced 61 lots, just a few homesites remain as a flurry of construction continues throughout the Johnson County community.
Several members of the Canyon Ridge building team, which includes Pauli Homes, Remington Custom Homes, Rockwood Builders, Wynne Homes and Red Lion Custom Homes, have speculative homes in various stages of completion. Annie Kennedy of Realty Executives of Kansas City, who markets Canyon Ridge for P&L Development, said the community’s spec homes tend to sell as soon as they’re finished and urged prospective buyers to contact Canyon Ridge now for up-to-date availability.
An appealing combination of quality-built homes, prime location, affordability and the convenience of a maintenance-provided lifestyle have drawn a variety of homeowners to Canyon Ridge. Kennedy likened the varying styles of reverse 1½-story floor plans to “mini mansions” – the perfect space with which to down- or right-size.
What’s astounding about Canyon Ridge is that many of the community’s early sales were made without a model row. Yet when the Canyon Ridge builders unveiled their floor plans last fall, Kennedy said the reaction was immediate.
“Pauli Homes made an instant and dramatic impression on the community and prospective buyers with his award-winning Villa Sorento floor plan,” Kennedy said. “The way he combined cool and earth tones gave the homes an edge, and he went outside the box with features like a round bar.”
Sophisticated craftsmanship and superior attention to detail have become hallmarks of Canyon Ridge, and the community’s builders have no problem following suit. Two furnished models – Villa Bellagio by Wynne Homes and Villa Sorento by Pauli Homes – offer open floor plans accented with eye-catching features and finishes that seamlessly blend style and functionality. Additional homes by Remington Custom Homes, Rockwood Builders and Red Lion Homes are available to view.
A cleverly tucked away entrance awaits at Wynne Homes’ four-bedroom, three-bathroom Villa Bellagio, revealing a secluded outdoor sitting area easily accessible by both the front door and a secondary door. Inside, an open floor plan creates an effortless connection between the living room, kitchen and dining area, which leads out to a covered deck with ceiling fan. Mixed materials including hardwood floors, stone accent walls and archways, and ample built-ins add a sophisticated yet functional aesthetic that’s further enhanced by a contrasting palette of bright white, polished silver and chic dark gray.
The four-bedroom, three-bathroom Villa Verona by Remington Custom Homes offers a similarly open floor plan that flows from the entry way into the living room, kitchen and dining area. A covered deck awaits off the dining area, offering a picturesque view of green space, trees and the community’s walking trail. The Villa Verona is complete with a sumptuous, spa-like bathroom that includes a large tiled shower, dual vanities and built-in cabinets and storage space. A finished lower level is complete with a large wet bar with additional bar seating, striking stone and dark wood décor and a wood and stone wall that makes an eye-catching backdrop for a flat-screen TV.
Prospective buyers are encouraged to visit Canyon Ridge and tour these beautiful homes in person. While you’re there, you’ll also see a number of homes in progress, including new model homes from Pauli Homes. Floor plans for the Villa Sienna and a new Villa Sorento will soon be finished, and the Villa Sicilian is also under construction. Additionally, Wynne Homes has a Villa Marsala and Villa Barcelona underway.
Part of Canyon Ridge’s appeal as a lifestyle community is that it helps residents get more out of the recreation and activities they love. Because Canyon Ridge is maintenance-provided, homeowners have peace of mind that their homes are cared for while they travel – especially appealing during the hectic holiday season. Provided maintenance includes lawn care, snow removal and trash/recycling, as well as maintenance of common grounds, all for a $125 monthly fee.
That convenience extends to the community’s prime location. Nestled within the rolling terrain of southern Johnson County, Canyon Ridge is just north of Kansas 10 on Canyon Creek Boulevard. The picturesque setting offers lush surroundings without compromising quick, convenient access to nearby highways, shops and services.
