Incomparable price points, unparalleled amenities and unmatched value protection: all three are trademarks of Stonebridge, the largest Rodrock development and a first in Darol Rodrock’s impressive 35-year career.
Made up of four neighborhoods — Stonebridge Meadows, Stonebridge Trails, Stonebridge Park and Stonebridge Village — the greater Stonebridge community offers homeowners a haven, all ideally situated between Ridgeview and Black Bob roads along 167th Street.
The four neighborhoods have experienced a surge in growth as homebuyers discover all that Stonebridge has to offer. Fittingly, while many developments are slowing down as fall approaches, these communities are gearing up and opening new phases, with an assortment of gorgeous spec and model homes open daily.
Stonebridge boasts some of the top Kansas City homebuilders, including James Engle Custom Homes, Summit Custom Homes, K.C. Builders & Design and more. When completed, it will include approximately 1,800 homes, ranging in size from 1,500 to 3,500 square feet and in price from the mid-$200,000s to $500,000-plus. Simply put, there’s a floor plan and price point to meet every homebuyer need.
Stonebridge Meadows, at 165th Street and Ridgeview Road, has an astonishing 19 spec homes and one fully furnished model, priced from $322,950 to $374,950 and available for immediate possession to 160 days. There are three reverse 11/2-story homes, two 11/2-story options and 14 two-story houses ready for viewing.
“As well, we have level, daylight, walkout, treed and cul-de-sac lots available for building with our builders — including Chris George Homes, Higgins Building Company, Hilmann Home Building, Rob Washam Construction, Gabriel Homes, Wynne Homes, Remington Homes and, R. L. Hoelting — and we’re open should buyers want to bring in their own builder,” added Ann Knickrehm, a longtime Rodrock marketing agent.
Meanwhile, Stonebridge Trails features two new furnished model homes.
“Gabriel Homes Inc., has an outstanding model located at the corner of 165th and Mur-Len Road,” said Joan Jacquin, a Rodrock marketing agent. “The Makenna has been a very popular floor plan and we’re proud to show it as our model. Adjacent to it is the Preston Ridge IV by Summit Custom Homes. This is always a crowd-pleaser, and we all appreciate the outstanding attention Summit gives their homes as a Green Builder. Both models are shown with five bedrooms and multiple bathrooms.”
The community also has several spec homes priced from $319,950 to $397,000, with possession available immediately to 90 days.
“I’m very excited about these homes, as there’s such a variety in style and elevations,” Jacquin added.
Stonebridge Park, at 165th Street and Black Bob, has two furnished models and five finished inventory homes at the ready. The homes offer diverse two-story and reverse 11/2-story plans, priced in the mid-$300,00s to mid-$400,000s.
“There are 10 other homes at various stages of construction that can still be customized to the homeowner’s specifications,” said Julie Parman, marketing agent for the neighborhood. “Many of the home sites feature daylight and walkout basements, mature trees and extra-deep backyards. And we have some of the best builders in the state, including James Engle Custom Homes, Summit Custom Homes, K.C. Builders & Design, Wynne Homes, Hilmann Home Building, New Mark Homes, D & M Homes, First Choice Custom Homes and Gabriel Homes.”
Finally, Stonebridge Village offers 40 enchanting Carriage Houses available in both reverse 11/2-story and classic 11/2-story. Designed by award-winning architects Nearing, Staats, Prelogar and Jones, each of the charming Carriage Houses boast inviting front porches and extremely open floor plans with absolutely no wasted space, all at the astonishing price point of $260,000 to $300,000. With five different reverse plans, there’s that “perfect” layout for everyone.
All these communities promise protected home value and a slew of amenities never before offered in this price range. An expansive trail system links all four neighborhoods, offering residents an easy way to visit friends and make use of the extended development’s impressive four pools, various playgrounds and two richly appointed clubhouses, complete with workout facilities.
In fact, Stonebridge boasts a junior Olympic-size pool and water slide; zero-entry pools and changing cabanas; pergola-covered grills; picnic areas; hard-surface sport court for basketball, tennis and volleyball; and several well-equipped children’s playgrounds.
Also accessible from these trails is Prairie Creek Elementary School, which won the Governor’s Achievement Award in 2011, 2012 and 2013. Rodrock has dedicated adjacent land for a middle school now in the planning stages.
Stonebridge also brings residents together with the Rodrock Development Moms Council, a concept created by Rodrock decades ago to help neighborhoods get off to a great start. Annual year-round events, such as Memorial weekend pool parties and end-of-summer gatherings, help new neighbors get to know each other and have fun. Upcoming events, including Family Fun Flick Night, Halloween parties and the famous Rodrock holiday horse-drawn hayrides, are already on the calendar.
“No local community offers so many amenities, such unsurpassed community togetherness and stellar schools with such a reasonable range of lot and home prices,” Knickrehm said. “It really is an incredible, one-of-a-kind community.”
