With the excitement of the Spring Parade of Homes opening today, the developers of Cider Mill Ridge at The National are changing the look and feel of its community.

With the demand for quality housing continuing to rise, the developers of Cider Mill Ridge at The National have decided to move forward with its amenity package. The amenities will include entry monuments, extensive landscaping and a community pool. The additional amenities fit well with the existing park, walking trails and Frisbee golf course, according to the developer, FiveStar Lifestyles.

The homes will be marketed by Chris Powell and his team at Better Homes and Gardens Kansas City Homes.

“It is important to have a single marketing team in order to fully inform buyers of all their choices and you have a lot of choices at Cider Mill Ridge,” Powell said.

Cider Mill Ridge offers new homes by award-winning builders, situated on spacious home sites on the rolling hills of Platte County with prices that offer an unprecedented value.

Cider Mill Ridge is in the highly sought-after Park Hill School District. More importantly, elementary-aged children attend Graden Elementary School, a nationally recognized Blue Ribbon School, a “Leader in Me School” and recipient of the Missouri Gold Star School Award. After Graden Elementary, students attend Plaza Sixth Grade Center, then Lakeview Middle School and finish their education at Park Hill South High School.

Another benefit for new residents of Cider Mill Ridge will be the ability to use the amenities at The National until the community pool is completed. The amenities include its pool complex, tennis courts, Family Activity Center and its casual and fine dining. Of course, if you fall in love with The National, social memberships are always an option, allowing you to enjoy these amenities all the time along with two 18-hole championship golf courses.

If The National amenities are not enough, you may walk or run along side the Missouri River while visiting English Landing Park or become one with nature while walking or running in Parkville’s Nature Sanctuary. They are within minutes of Cider Mill Ridge.

Another convenience within a five-minute drive is Parkville Commons, a 250,000-square-foot retail center, whose shops offer basic necessities. Cider Mill Ridge residents can buy their groceries at Price Chopper, pick up dry cleaning at Pride Cleaners, find their everyday needs at Walgreen’s and dine at Nick-n-Jake’s, Rusty Horse Tavern, Jimmy John’s, Sakae Sushi and Pizza Hut. It is also home to the metropolitan area’s most active and vibrant health and wellness center, the Platte County Community Center/YMCA.

In addition to Parkville Commons, homeowners enjoy quick and easy access to The Legends at Village West, Zona Rosa, downtown Kansas City, Kansas City International Airport and a number of other destinations within 15 minutes of Cider Mill Ridge.

Even with all these conveniences outside residents’ front door, they may still find it difficult to leave The National where they can enjoy golf on one of two 18 hole championship courses, tennis, swimming and both formal and casual dining venues.

Homebuyers will find a wide variety of floor plans at Cider Mill Ridge that appeal to everyone from young families to empty-nesters. Styles include ranch, reverse ranch, 11/2-story and two-story designs featuring extensive interior features such as granite counters, hardwood floors, kitchen islands, walk-in pantries, custom cabinets, architectural arches and extensive wood trim.

Prices range from the mid $200,000s to the upper $300,000s, a range that is unprecedented for a resort-style community and quality-built homes. Cider Mill Ridge builders have won awards during every Parade of Homes in which they were entered.

Available home sites in Cider Mill Ridge include numerous walkout and daylight locations with views of the golf course, neighborhood park or valley and a short walk to the community pool.

With its award-winning designs, convenient location, top schools, charming small-town feel, included amenities and unparalleled value, Cider Mill Ridge at The National has become the go-to place for residents of all needs in the Northland.
