Frigid winter nights will be gone before you know it, replaced by warm, balmy evenings perfect for an evening stroll or relaxing on the back deck. At Cottonwood Canyon, you’ll enjoy all this with a bonus: some of the most breathtaking views in the Kansas City area.
“We have the most unbelievable sunset views here at Cottonwood Canyon,” said Michael, a Cottonwood Canyon homeowner. “Honestly, they’re the best we have ever seen.”
Sunsets aren’t the only amazing views within Cottonwood Canyon. Thoughtful planning resulted in a community in which nature is an integral part of the lifestyle experience — a welcoming oasis in the heart of Johnson County.
Stately homes are woven among 300 picturesque rolling acres, many of which are forested. Canyon Farms Golf Club also winds through the community, which makes for some truly majestic views that combine the carefully maintained golf course with nearby bluffs, streams and wildflowers.
Never miss a local story.
In just a few short weeks, Cottonwood Canyon will be in full bloom. The warm weather is also the perfect accompaniment to outdoor recreation. Purchase a membership to Canyon Farms Golf Club and the challenging, picturesque course awaits just outside your front door. Construction will soon be finished on the Canyon Farms clubhouse, an exciting transformation into what the Canyon Farms team called, “one of the finest clubhouses in Kansas City.”
Additional recreation opportunities and points of interest await just outside of Cottonwood Canyon. Now that Mill Creek Road is complete, the Lenexa Civic Center is a short walk away. The civic center is part of the larger Lenexa City Center, a mixed-use hub that includes the newly opened Lenexa Public Market, indoor aquatic center, fitness facilities, and a public art gallery.
There’s so much to experience and enjoy at Cottonwood Canyon. And if you buy soon, you’ll be moved into the community in time to take full advantage of sun and fun. A new phase of homesites recently opened, adding some incredible locations to the community’s already enviable selection.
New homesites have proved so popular, in fact, that Ripley Associates, who markets Cottonwood Canyon, said three of the 10 newly released homesites were reserved in one weekend. Until the final phase is complete in 2018, just 20 homesites remain in the enclave-like community.
Prospective buyers are encouraged to stop by Cottonwood Canyon and get a firsthand look at the new homesites and a recently completed model home. The reverse 1½-story floor plan is the first of its kind from B.L. Rieke Custom Homes, a breathtaking example of eye-catching architecture and thoughtful attention to detail.
“This home has some new looks for us,” said Bruce Rieke, president of B.L. Rieke Custom Homes. “We’ve done a lot of what I call ‘Western style’—this home has a few of those elements, but also new looks as well as grays, different ceiling and fireplace treatments, and better-quality product.”
Prospective buyers who act quickly will also have a prime opportunity to take advantage of new floor plans that will soon be available from several members of the Cottonwood Canyon building team, including LDH Construction, LG Homes and D and D Building, Inc. Not only do these builders effortlessly blend timeless design with modern functionality; they each have a reputation for quality that helps make Cottonwood Canyon among the most sought-after new home destinations in the Kansas City area.
It’s no wonder that Cottonwood Canyon has earned a well-deserved reputation as a go-to destination for homeowners who covet quality, luxury, beauty and convenience.
“Where else are you going to get golf, water, and be as close to the Lenexa City Center and all that’s going on there?” Rieke said. “Cottonwood Canyon is right in the middle of it.”
