Just as its most picturesque name suggests, The Mill at Riverstone is well underway to becoming the most charming and captivating new-home development in all of Overland Park. Ideally situated at 183rd and Caenen, the community’s first phase is blooming with 4 beautiful newly designed model homes and another fantastic 12 spec homes under construction.
“With some 200 home sites, The Mill at Riverstone offers beautiful walkout lots along city park ground,” says community manager Leslie Young. “We have four model homes in an assortment of styles, including the reverse 1.5-story Sarasota Reverse by James Engle Custom Homes, the 1.5-story Chesapeake 11.1 Up by Hilmann Home Building, the 1.5-story Windermere by BCI-Bowen Custom Homes, and the 2-story Sequoia II by KC Building and Design.”
“We have an additional 12 homes currently under construction by these same four outstanding builders,” adds community manager Craig Hauser. “They truly are remarkable builders who put such thought into their designs! The spec homes range from 2 story, 1.5 story, and reverse 1.5 story, so there’s something to fit everyone’s dream.”
The Mill at Riverstone is located at 183rd and Caenen, which is just south of 179th and Quivira, placing this gorgeous community near top-rated Blue Valley schools, Heritage Park, and the Overland Park Arboretum—just to name a few of the attractions available in the area.
Overland Park has long been lauded as an ideal place to call home. Money magazine listed it at #29 on its top 50 places to live in 2016—and the city has landed on the publication’s list since 2006. Various parenting, financial, and cultural websites have also ranked the city among their top spots to set down roots. This coveted city has few opportunities left for buyers to build the home of their dreams, which is partly why The Mill at Riverstone is garnering such a strong response, Leslie says.
And the land is absolutely picturesque—with rolling acreage and ample cul-de-sacs and green space. Forty-one lots are available in the first phase, with a variety of home sites, including level, daylight, and walkouts with starting prices beginning in the low $90,000’s. The Mill at Riverstone will boast a wide variety of plans so that the community is anything but cookie cutter, with prices ranging from the low $500,000.
The second phase will include the neighborhood pool and clubhouse. As with most Rodrock developments, such amenities serve as the heart of the community—a gathering place for friends and family that fosters countless hours of fun. A child-friendly zero-entry pool, changing cabanas, playground, picnic areas, and paved trails ensure that the neighborhood will be active and maintain its value.
And the Mill of Riverstone will have a truly unique clubhouse, as it will have the appearance of an old mill (staying true to the development’s name), complete with running water and pond.
“It will be so charming,” says Craig. “Not only with the clubhouse boast workout facilities, it will also have space for parties and other gatherings. Given how lovely the building will be, we’re confident the clubhouse will be a community favorite.”
As well, Darol Rodrock’s groundbreaking Moms’ Council will be active in Riverstone. An array of family-friendly activities are planned thanks to the Council, including spring egg hunts, Memorial Day pool-opening parties, July 4th bike-a-thons, outdoor movie nights, and pumpkin-carving contests. In December, families adore the holiday hayride and caroling event, which features huge Belgian draft horses pulling wagons down luminary-lit streets. Santa even comes to visit, talking to each child within the community.
These gatherings help new neighbors have fun, but they also build a strong sense of community and help provide families—and importantly children—a safe place to grow up. And it’s a difference that resonates deeply with residents.
Another selling point is that The Mill at Riverstone is in the nationally rated Blue Valley School District, feeding into the brand-new elementary school Wolf Springs, Aubrey Bend Middle School, and Blue Valley Southwest High School. With a mission of “unprecedented academic success and unparalleled personal growth for every student,” Blue Valley’s strong schools are a draw for families all over the area.
“We have something for just about any family,” adds Craig. “We’re excited for the clubhouse and pool, coming in the second phase. We are just south of the new Blue Valley Southwest High School, tucked back in a beautiful pocket of ground. This community is truly a discerning homebuyer’s dream come true. We invite you out to see this incredible community—before this rare opportunity slips by!”
