When it comes to winning awards, the residential community of Cottonwood Canyon is no stranger to recognition. The Homebuilders Association of Greater Kansas City awarded two homes in Cottonwood Canyon with American Dream First Place awards.
The Addison II by Starr Homes, located at 9180 Cottonwood Canyon Dr. on lot 18 is a spectacular reverse 1 ½-story home that offers four bedrooms, four full bathrooms, two half bathrooms and a three-car garage. The stately home encompasses a wealth of green design elements, products, materials and perhaps most importantly, practices, that truly create an ecologically efficient home of lasting beauty.
The home serves as the Cottonwood Canyon sales office and is an appropriate representation of how Starr Homes incorporates its passion for beauty and design with innovative and effective products to reduce waste, provide energy savings and add to the long-term affordability of the home.
The second American Dream First Place Award winner in Cottonwood Canyon was Befort Construction. Overlooking the No. 15 green of the adjoining Canyon Farms Golf Club (formerly known as the Golf Club of Kansas and once ranked among Golfweek magazine’s “Best New Courses”), the home is a gorgeous reverse 1 ½-story, four-bedroom, four-bathroom home with a spacious master suite on the first floor.
Inside, prospective buyers will find clean lines and a modern feel with an eye for luxury highlighted by all-granite countertops, wood throughout the main living areas, expansive glass walls, commercial grade appliance packages, custom cabinetry, luxury wet bar packages and much more.
“Starr Homes and Befort Construction possess years of experience in the building industry and are highly sought-after for their beautiful, functional and energy-efficient homes built using only the finest designs, technology, craftsman and suppliers,” said developer Steve Hughes.
Other industry honors at Cottonwood Canyon include two Gold Awards for “Best New Community,” a Silver Award for Starr Homes from Kansas City Homes & Gardens magazine for “Best Empty Nest” and B.L. Rieke Custom Homes for “Best Model Home $750,000 to $1 million.”
“Prospective buyers who come here will instantly see, understand and come to appreciate how eco-conscious designs, technology and sustainability allow them to enjoy an environmentally healthy lifestyle, not just a house,” said local real estate agent Angie Ripley, who markets Cottonwood Canyon with Nita Criswell. “In addition to the neighboring golf course, the community is adjacent to the Johnson County Trail System and near the new Lenexa Civic Center, which together offer residents here an ambiance of natural beauty and community amenities.”
The Cottonwood Canyon team is also proud of the fact that not long ago, Ripley was named the Kansas City Realtor Salesperson of the Year. The award, presented annually by the Kansas City Regional Association of Realtors, recognizes individuals for their professional accomplishments, including sales volume, commitment to ethical real estate practices, community service, and involvement in local, state and national Realtor associations.
“It is rewarding to have an award-winning community around an award-winning golf course with so many award-winning homes and an award-winning marketing team,” said Hughes.
