Crest the first hill as 95th Street becomes Prairie Star Parkway and you’ll be treated to spectacular views of gently rolling terrain interspersed with an appealing combination of mature trees and lush landscaping. Within these picturesque surroundings awaits Cottonwood Canyon, a boutique Lenexa community that’s captivated homeowners seeking a tranquil respite from the frantic pace of daily life.
On the heels of a successful Spring Parade of Homes that brought record traffic numbers to the community, Cottonwood Canyon continues to see a combination of brisk buying and building activity. And that means now is the best time for prospective buyers to find their dream home within the community.
Cottonwood Canyon’s newest phase of homesites opened just before the Spring Parade, and in just one weekend, three of the new homesites were reserved. The enclave-like community features a total of 125 homesites, nearly 100 of which are or will soon be developed. Of those, only approximately 30 homesites are still available for prospective buyers who, if interested, are encouraged to act quickly and secure their place in Cottonwood Canyon.
The community’s exemplary building team is busy, too. Five speculative homes are underway from B.L. Rieke Custom Homes, LG Homes and the newest member of Cottonwood Canyon’s building team: Curt Riley Custom Homes.
A number of inviting floor plans are available at Cottonwood Canyon, giving prospective buyers an enticing selection that includes open, airy layouts enhanced by thoughtful features and finishes. Floor plans range in size from 2,800 to more than 5,000 square feet, and prices start in the low $400,000s.
Homes are built to take full advantage of the community’s beautiful topography, offering breathtaking views of green space, Canyon Farms Golf Club or the community lake. And depending on the homesite and floor plan, features can be added to further enhance the home. Consider, for example, a strategically placed deck on a home with eastern exposure, the perfect spot to enjoy a cup of coffee during the sunrise.
Outside the home, residents can take full advantage of the convenience of provided maintenance. Low homeowner association dues include snow removal, trash pick-up and lawn maintenance, giving families more time to enjoy what they love in Cottonwood Canyon and the surrounding metro area.
That includes Cottonwood Canyon’s beautiful surroundings, which make the most of the rolling, treed terrain and natural features like creeks, small bluffs and lush, native landscaping, including grasses and flowers. And in the midst of it all, Canyon Farms Golf Club beckons with a course that’s as challenging as it is beautiful.
Rather than choosing convenience over peaceful seclusion, homeowners can have both, thanks to a location that’s within minutes of several highways, as well as attractions and recreation. With the recent completion of Mill Creek Road, homeowners are just a short walk away from the new Lenexa Civic Center, which is located within the broader Lenexa City Center and is scheduled to open this year. The development will serve as a mixed-use hub that includes a public market, indoor aquatic center, fitness facilities and a public art gallery. Several Lenexa Public Market tenants have been announced, including The Roasterie, Foo’s Fabulous Café, topp’d Pizza + Salads, Lenexa Locale and Marilyn’s Mad Treats.
A high level of activity is expected to continue at Cottonwood Canyon, so make plans soon to come out and experience the community firsthand. Your new home is waiting.
