Activity has not slowed down at Cider Mill Ridge. With many homes under construction along with the development of a new pool, Cider Mill Ridge is gearing up for another Parade of Homes.

“We are excited about what SAB Homes and Double Eagle Builders are building,” said Chris Powell with Better Homes and Gardens Real Estate Kansas City Homes. “With many floor plans to choose from, I am sure we have just what you are looking for.”

Cider Mill Ridge is making all the right changes to attract everyone from young families looking for schools to the empty-nesters looking to enjoy their retirement years with walking trails, golf and a new pool, all an easy walk or golf cart drive away.

“It has been great working with the developer, FiveStar Lifestyles, to get Cider Mill Ridge reinvigorated,” said Scott Bamesberger, owner of SAB Homes.

Another plus is the addition of Powell and his team at Better Homes & Gardens Real Estate Kansas City Homes to be the sole marketer of Cider Mill Ridge.

“It is important to have a single marketing team in order to fully inform buyers of all their choices and you have a lot of choices at Cider Mill Ridge,” Powell said.

Cider Mill Ridge is in the highly sought-after Park Hill School District. More importantly, elementary children will attend Graden Elementary School, a nationally recognized Blue Ribbon School, a “Leader in Me School” and recipient of the Missouri Gold Star School Award. After Graden Elementary, students attend Plaza 6th Grade Center, then Lakeview Middle School and finish their education at Park Hill South High School.

Another benefit for new residents of Cider Mill Ridge is proximity to the best golf in the Northland. You can become a member of The National Golf Club of Kansas City or its sister course, The National II. Both offer challenging layouts and beautiful, well manicured fairways. As with all the amenities, you’re a short golf cart drive away. Of course if golf is not your game, become a social member and enjoy the pool, health club, tennis and many casual dining venues.

If The National’s amenities are not enough, you may walk or run along the Missouri River while visiting English Landing Park or become one with nature while walking or running in Parkville’s very own Nature Sanctuary, also within minutes of Cider Mill Ridge.

Another convenience within a five-minute drive is Parkville Commons, a 250,000-square-foot retail center, whose shops offer basic necessities. Residents can buy their groceries at Price Chopper, pick up dry cleaning at Pride Cleaners, find their everyday needs at Walgreen’s and dine at Nick-n-Jake’s, Rusty Horse Tavern, Jimmy John’s, Sakae Sushi and Pizza Hut. It is also home to the metropolitan area’s most active and vibrant health and wellness center, the Platte County Community Center/YMCA.

In addition, homeowners enjoy quick and easy access to The Legends at Village West, Zona Rosa, downtown Kansas City, Kansas City International Airport and a number of other destinations within 15 minutes of Cider Mill Ridge.

Homebuyers will find a wide variety of floor plans at Cider Mill Ridge that appeal to everyone from young families to empty-nesters. Styles include ranch, reverse ranch, 11/2-story and two-story designs featuring extensive interior features such as granite counters, hardwood floors, kitchen islands, walk-in pantries, custom cabinets, architectural arches and extensive wood trim.

Prices range from the mid $200,000s to the upper $300,000s, a range that is unprecedented for a resort-style community and quality-built homes. Cider Mill Ridge builders have won awards during every Parade of Homes in which they were entered.

Available home sites in Cider Mill Ridge include numerous walkout and daylight locations with views of the golf course, neighborhood park or valley and a short walk or golf cart drive to the community pool.

With its award-winning designs, convenient location, top schools, charming small-town feel, included amenities and unparalleled value, Cider Mill Ridge at The National has become the go-to place for residents of all needs in the Northland.
