The land that makes up Sundance Ridge is wide and rolling, dotted with mature trees and winding creeks—and it’s absolutely brimming with potential. So it’s with great excitement that Rodrock Development greets Sundance Ridge’s first Spring Parade of Homes.
Located east of Mission Road on 175th Street, the development is comprised of three neighborhoods: Big Sky, Red Fox Run, and Archers Landing. Some 11 homes from this spectacular community are going to be showcased in Kansas City’s 56th annual Parade.
“This is absolutely the best time to come out and see what this one-of-a-kind community is made of,” says community manager Bob Sloan. “Today through May 13th these gorgeous abodes—by Kansas City’s top builders—are open to the public for free tours from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. daily. This community has been carefully planned for years, and now the public can see what all the enthusiasm is about.”
Tour-goers shouldn’t miss the Olympus II Expanded by Pyramid Homes in Big Sky. This 5-bedroom, 5-bath, 1.5-story home is laden with designer-inspired detail, including a floor-to-ceiling, stone-accent fireplace and hand-carved, open-truss ceiling beams in the Great Room. Equally dramatic is the 2-story living room and foyer—with an elegant built-in medallion—and floating curved staircase.
“We also have the Edgemont by Woodbridge Custom Homes, which is a wonderful reverse 1.5 story with 10- and 12-foot ceilings on the first floor,” says community manager Bruce Stout. “The spacious and bright foyer features an open, curved staircase to the lower level. But the kitchen is a true stunner, with enameled cabinetry and eye-popping white- and black-veined granite island. An oversized pantry and spacious breakfast room with stained bead board coffered ceiling detailing and an enameled built-in hutch help ensure this is one home you’ll never forget.”
Dreams & Design Building’s Colorado Windbrook is another popular reverse 1.5-story plan, boasting 4 bedrooms, 3.5 baths, a 4-car garage, and luxurious owners’ suite. The suite has fantastic bay windows and a spa-like bath and custom-designed closet. The walk-in pantry includes a clever craft workplace, while the lower level offers an in-house sports bar with three TV connections, HDMI cables, and surround sound pre-wired.
“But we can’t forget about the Augusta, also by Dreams & Designs Building,” adds Bob. “This stunning reverse 1.5 story sits on corner lot adjoining green space. The lower level offers a suspended slab under the garage—perfect for a workshop or golf cart/mower storage. And the elegant outdoor living space has an amazing kitchen with Coyote grill package, quartz top, and manufactured rock surround!”
“Meanwhile the Yazan by Pyramid Homes is a 1.5-story plan that embraces elegance and style,” says Bruce. “This exciting and functional layout offers multiple dining options, with an oversized breakfast area plus formal dining—complete with unique ceiling detailing. A formal study with French doors and an upper-level loft area provide versatility and function.”
The Chesapeake II.2 by Hilmann Home Building is a reverse 1.5 story from the award-winning Chesapeake series, situated on a heavily wooded walkout lot. A covered lanai makes the most of the surrounding serenity and offers dual access to the home and a see-through fireplace to the spacious Great Room. A stunning lower level offers a roomy entertainment/gaming area, theatre area with fireplace, and an exquisite granite-accented wet-bar.
“Another must-see is the wildly popular Laurel II Expanded by James Engle Custom Homes,” says Bob. “This 1.5-story features an expansive loft area for gaming, studies, or theatre. And the covered patio with fireplace is ideal for relaxing on even cool nights!”
Finally, First Choice Custom Homes’ Tuscan Craftsman is a reverse 1.5 story with a unique angled entry, quaint library, and spacious sunroom that makes the most of Archers Landing’s natural views. “A true hearth room allows for quiet evenings in front of the fireplace, which is flanked by handsome cabinetry,” Bruce says. “And the lot backs to wooded green space, offering privacy and views.”
Also not to be missed while on tour are the plans for the greater Sundance community that continue to roll out, including a jaw-dropping entry and a 4,000-plus-square-foot clubhouse with conference rooms, a stately fireplace and bar, a common area overlooking a beautiful valley, and workout facilities.
Additional amenities planned include a complex with three pools—including an Olympic-sized and a zero-entry pool with splash pads and fountains—playgrounds, picnic areas, 3.5 miles of paved trails linking the various neighborhoods, and green spaces.
Sundance Ridge offers a living experience like no other—and the Parade of Homes is the perfect time to be inspired by this one-of-a-kind community.
