Even the most beautiful home is much less inviting without a picturesque location and enviable views to enhance the residential architecture. At Cottonwood Canyon, breathtaking views are in plentiful supply. The only question that remains: which view is the most majestic.
To find out — and to give homeowners a reason to celebrate one of the most enticing features of the community — the Cottonwood Canyon marketing team recently asked homeowners to submit their best view photos. Angie Ripley, who markets Cottonwood Canyon with Nita Criswell, said choosing a winner was difficult thanks to the incredible photos that were submitted.
The first-place winner said the sunset views from his home are unparalleled.
“We have the most unbelievable sunset views here at Cottonwood Canyon,” he said. “Honestly, they’re the best we have ever seen.”
Never miss a local story.
His experience underscores that nature isn’t merely part of the backdrop at Cottonwood Canyon. Thoughtful planning resulted in a community in which nature is an integral part of the lifestyle experience. Eye-catching homes are woven among 300 picturesque, rolling acres, many of which are forested. Cottonwood Canyon is also closely intertwined with Canyon Farms Golf Club, which further enhances the aesthetic and makes for some truly majestic views that combine the carefully maintained golf course with nearby bluffs, streams and wildflowers, creating a compelling duality that begs to be photographed.
This sort of serene, nature-focused experience is typically found only by traveling. Yet at Cottonwood Canyon, it’s an integral part of daily life.
“Consider for a moment your all-time favorite vacation spot. Are you relaxed, less stressed or concerned about the things you can’t control?” Ripley asked. “Are you surrounded by scenic views and at peace with yourself and those around you? Well, what if you could have that relaxed, calm and balanced feeling every day, here in Kansas City, close to work, family and friends? This is what we are offering at Cottonwood Canyon.”
A number of homeowners have already found their dream homes in Cottonwood Canyon, drawn by not only the topography and the surroundings but also the appealing residential architecture that features timeless floor plans from some of Kansas City’s best builders, including Starr Homes, Don Julian Builders, B.L. Rieke Custom Homes, Brown Midwest Homes, Curtis Befort Custom Homes and Prime Homes. A number of speculative homes are in various stages of construction, allowing homeowners the flexibility to accommodate a range of move-in timelines. Home prices vary from $450,000 to over $1 million.
And to further extend the idyllic feeling of the community, Cottonwood Canyon is maintenance-provided and offers low homeowner association dues ($150 a month) that include snow removal, trash and lawn maintenance. Future development will include a pool and neighborhood gathering area, completing the vacation-like retreat that’s just minutes from Interstate 435 and the new Lenexa City Center mixed-use development.
“We have been so successful here at Cottonwood Canyon because the neighborhood is very attractive to buyers looking beyond a huge amount of square footage, for a relaxing, tranquil, beautiful way of life,” Ripley said.
