Perched high and overlooking the picturesque Blue River Valley, the Communities of River Ridge just south of 159th Street on Kenneth Road offer tranquil living close to the city.
This custom-home development has a great deal to offer a wide range of buyers in three distinctive neighborhoods: Sunset Hills at River Ridge, High Point Estates, and The Enclave of Sunset Hills, each set amidst a stunning natural setting with home sites boasting towering trees and natural sloped terrain.
The award-winning builders here include Tabernacle Homes, Parkview Homes, KBC Homes, Koehler Building Company, Wheeler Design Custom Homes, Comerio Corporation, Braklow Custom Homes, Bickimer Construction, Taylored Homes, James Engle Custom Homes, John Stewart Custom Homes, Reed Fuller Custom Homes and Krueger Homes. Other builders are welcome with developer approval. Each offers a wealth of floor plan and interior and exterior design options to help buyers build the home of their dreams.
Those who need a faster move-in timeline than building a custom home allows may select one of the inventory homes that are in various stages of completion.
Need a house in a hurry? Only 30 days from completion is the Varese in the High Point phase, an inviting 1 ½-story, four-bedroom, three-bathroom, approximately 2,600 square-foot home by Comerio Corporation. This open hearth room design with a covered patio is priced at $424,877.
Just completed, Wheeler Design Custom Homes is offering the Monterrey, the community model home, in The Enclave phase, a gorgeous, two-story, five-bedroom, five-bathroom home with the master suite and three of the bedrooms with bathrooms on the second floor, as well as a bedroom/office and another bath on the first floor. The second-floor laundry conveniently opens to the master bathroom and the hall. The main level has an open design that includes a great room with fireplace, hearth room with another fireplace on the covered deck, dining room, breakfast room and island kitchen with a walk-in pantry, as well as a covered deck with a fireplace. This home is priced at $574,500.
With the Aubrey Vineyards tucked behind The Enclave phase, buyers can have a vineyard view from their new home. There are currently three lots remaining that have a view of the vineyard property. Each of these lots are private, wooded and walk out.
Six magnificent spec homes – five reverses and one, 1 ½-story – located in The Enclave phase are currently under construction and priced in the upper-$500,000s to $600,000s. Each offers approximately 3,400 square feet of living with four bedrooms and four bathrooms. They are by Tabernacle Homes, John Stewart Custom Homes, Reed Fuller Custom Homes, Wheeler Design Custom Homes and KBC Homes.
Located in a cul-de-sac, the Stewart Custom Homes reverse 1 ½-story plan is available, with completion within the next 3-4 months. This home, which will be priced at approximately $600,000, features four bedrooms and four bathrooms, a suspended slab garage floor, a covered deck and patio, and spectacular views.
Sales have been brisk, and these homes are expected to go fast during this year’s Spring Parade of Homes, which runs through May 8.
Besides the breathtaking views of the surrounding countryside, one of the biggest draws to the Communities of River Ridge is its close proximity to a wealth of lifestyle conveniences.
“Many people who visit are surprised how close River Ridge is to everything you need: highways, shopping, and restaurants at 135th Street and along 151st Street,” said Lettiann Southerland, who markets the community. “But it feels like it’s miles from the city. It’s peaceful here.”
Residents also have quick access to Interstate 435, U.S. 69 and Missouri 150. Community amenities include a pool, tennis courts, volleyball courts, fishing ponds and playground. Students attend schools in the Blue Valley School District.
