During this holiday season while everyone is busy with work, shopping, festivities and the daily hustle of everyday living, Mick Vena, owner of P & L Development, is taking a moment to express his gratitude for the builders who work in his communities. These builders choose to spend their moments paying close attention to detail to create a custom home for each homeowner so that they may enjoy their own special memories in the homes for this holiday season and the future ones to come.
Annie Kennedy, with Realty Executives of Kansas City, community manager for P & L Development, said the builders’ daily dedication make it possible for homebuyers to “love where they live.”
Because these builders care deeply about the houses they build, they’ve been a big part of the success of P & L Development’s current communities, Brighton’s Landing in Olathe, which is in its fourth and final phase, and the new maintenance-provided community of Canyon Ridge in Lenexa, which opened in the spring and is selling quickly, even before the model row is completed.
One of those builders, Wynne Homes, is constructing model homes in both communities and brings a wealth of experience and construction knowledge to the process. Owners Bill Kumpfer, Billy Kumpfer and Paul Knickrehm have a combined 25 years of experience in the home-building and real estate industry, allowing them to offer detailed knowledge about construction techniques, design, the latest decor and the features buyers want most.
In fact, Wynne Homes is building one of the homes on model row in Canyon Ridge, the Villa Bellagio, which will be the anchor sales office. This home should be in a stage that allows touring by the end of the year and is destined to be on the Spring Parade of Homes. This reverse 1 1/2-story plan has an incomparable design that includes a private entry courtyard, a great room and dining room in an open design, as well as the master suite and second bedroom/office with full bath on the main level. The lower level includes two more bedrooms, a bathroom, recreation room and game room.
Wynne Homes is also building three other distinctively designed homes in Canyon Ridge, the Villa Bianco, the Villa Barcelona and the Villa Marsala. All are reverse 1 1/2-story plans with open first-floor designs emphasizing main-level living. They even offer a four-car garage on the walkout lower level of the Villa Barcelona model which is available for sale.
Other builders in Canyon Ridge include Pauli Homes (certified “aging in place” builder), Rockwood Builders, Remington Custom Homes and Red Lion Custom Homes. The five builders have 23 inventory homes under construction, with varying completion dates and plenty of time for buyers to make decor choices.
Canyon Ridge is a new lifestyle community created for homeowners not just looking to downsize but to “right-size” their lifestyle. All homes are reverse 1 1/2-story designs and are priced from $300,000 to $400,000, providing a rare opportunity in this hard-to-find price range for single-standing patio/villa homes in a maintenance-provided community. Most are on walkout or daylight home sites.
There are over 11 floor plan designs to choose from with five different builders, sure to accommodate a buyer’s needs. Canyon Ridge offers only 61 home sites, and already 20 percent of them have pre-sold with another 5 percent reserved.
Provided maintenance includes lawn care and snow removal, as well as maintenance of the common grounds, all for a $100 monthly fee. A walking trail through the center of Canyon Ridge will have a gazebo at one end and a fountain and water feature at the other, providing a welcoming area for residents to gather.
Canyon Ridge is on Canyon Creek Boulevard just north of Kansas 10. Exit K-10 at Cedar Creek Parkway and turn north on Canyon Creek Boulevard. It is in the Olathe School District and the Olathe Northwest High School attendance area.
In addition to the homes in Canyon Ridge, Wynne Homes is building two model homes with brand new designs in the final phase of Brighton’s Landing, the Rockport two-story that will be the model home and the Savannah I EX, a reverse ranch plan. Kennedy said the Savannah is a unique plan with two rare large master suite closets and an expansive lower level.
The fourth and final phase of Brighton’s Landing, the grand finale to a popular northwestern Olathe neighborhood, offers 44 estate-size home sites which Kennedy described as best ones yet with many of them backing to green space or heavily treed open space. Kennedy said homes will be priced from $400,000 to $700,000. There are still a few patio/villa treed lots available in the villa section.
In addition to Wynne Homes, featured builders include JS Robinson Fine Homes and Pauli Homes, each of which have models under construction that are new designs and should be completed by spring. A new model row is under construction for the Spring Parade.
Brighton’s Landing is off Lone Elm Road at 114th Street in Olathe, a thriving area in the Olathe School District and just around the corner from the highly sought-after Olathe Northwest High School. It is minutes from Kansas 10 highway, providing quick access to all areas of Kansas City and to Lawrence.
Brighton’s Landing has a pool and cabana with walking trails coming soon. Kennedy describes it as a friendly neighborhood chosen by many multiple generation families where grandparents watch their grandchildren grow up.
