Rodrock Development is creating a dazzling presence in southeastern Johnson County, and Sundance Ridge shines as the star of the show. Located east of Mission Road on 175th Street, Sundance Ridge will encompass in excess of 500 acres once completed. Comprised of three neighborhoods — Big Sky, Red Fox Run, and Archers Landing — the development is carved out of truly breathtaking terrain, marked by rolling acreage, winding creeks, and mature trees. Darol Rodrock proudly believes it’s “absolutely the most beautiful piece of ground in Overland Park. Nothing compares.”
The plans for the community are exquisite and embrace a rustic, wide-open, natural tone. In keeping with tradition, Rodrock Development is creating a jaw-dropping entryway that will welcome residents home to Sundance Ridge with natural rock water features, bronze statuary, and thoughtfully designed landscape plans.
But this is merely the beginning: A 4,000-plus-square-foot Montana-lodge-styled clubhouse will offer conference rooms, a stately fireplace and bar, and a common area overlooking a beautiful valley. An indoor gymnasium (with a seating capacity for 300 and stage for community events), workout facilities, indoor track, basketball court, climbing wall, and spa will complete this outstanding compound.
Jeff Ashner with Ashner Construction is proud to be building this one-of-a-kind clubhouse. “Darol has a vision for this center to be the heart of the community,” Jeff says. “It’s a place for people to gather and socialize, drawing the neighborhood together. He sees it as a comfortable environment with casual, warm materials, including stone, rich woods, and log-and-timber details. The clubhouse will make you feel like you’re on vacation in your own community.”
“Jeff Ashner has long been known for his trendsetting building style and how he incorporates the rustic, lodge feel in functional designs and layouts,” says community manager Bruce Stout. “Ashner — along with the architectural excellence brought by Gerald Janssen and Monty Stout of Elswood, Smith, and Carlson Architects — hopes to begin construction on the focal point of the community within the next 6 to 9 months.”
Enhancing the clubhouse complex will be a complex with three pools — including an Olympic-sized and a zero-entry pool with splash pads and fountains. Additional amenities planned include well-equipped playgrounds, picnic areas, some 3.5 miles of paved trails linking the various neighborhoods, and green spaces. There are also plans for a children’s campground area, complete with a log-cabin clubhouse.
A sales trailer is currently onsite, and needless to say, the homebuilding community had a strong reaction to such exceptional plans. “We sold an amazing 42 lots within 48 hours of releasing lots for construction to the building community,” Bruce says. “The confidence and excitement we saw during the lot draw was very encouraging. We’ve assembled an incredible group of homebuilders — award-winning, innovative, leaders in the new-home construction industry. We are beyond excited to showcase these builders as the focal point in Sundance Ridge.”
The model row is already underway at Archers Landing, which will be home to models by Hilmann Home Building, James Engle Custom Homes, Rob Washam Homes, First Choice Custom Homes, J.S. Robinson Fine Homes, and Tabernacle Homes. Anticipated price points will be between $450,000 and $600,000, with anticipated occupancy in early spring.
Red Fox Run is open to developer-approved builders, but trusted names including C & M Homes, LG Homes, Dreams and Design Builders, Hilmann Home Building, Pyramid Homes, Woodbridge Custom Homes, J.S. Robinson Fine Homes and James Engle Custom Homes have already committed to the community, with prices ranging from the low $600,000’s to the mid $900,000’s.
Finally, Big Sky, which will also be open to approved builders, will boast homes ranging from $900,000 to $1,000,000-plus. Well-known builders Woodbridge Custom Homes, Ashner Construction, Starr Homes, Pyramid Homes, and J. S. Robinson Fine Homes have already committed to be part of this one-of-a-kind community.
“We’re honored to announce that Starr Homes and Ashner Construction have both chosen Sundance Ridge for the site of entries in next summer’s Artisan Homes Tour,” adds Bruce. “Construction activity in all three areas of Sundance Ridge is at a fever pitch with all of the prior mentioned builders creating a wide array of residential inventory at a variety of price points for home buyers to review and ultimately call home.”
Sundance Ridge is not your typical subdivision. Rather, it’s a dream destination for families, a truly one-of-a-kind neighborhood that offers the finest in living. Darol’s lifelong goal is to build better communities, and Sundance Ridge more than delivers.
