When out scouting the best the Fall Parade of Homes has to offer, make sure you visit one of Rodrock Development’s newest communities, The Mill at Riverstone. Ideally situated at 183rd and Caenen (just west of Quivira), Riverstone offers beautiful home sites with quiet country feel and city proximity. And through October 7th, four of this community’s gorgeous abodes are open to the public for free tours from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. daily.
Among the homes beautifully furnished and ready to tour is the stunning Sarasota Reverse by James Engle Custom Homes. This reverse 1.5 story boasts 4 bedrooms and 4.5 baths—with both the master suite and a secondary bedroom on the main floor. The home features a fabulous open floor plan, impressive kitchen with oversized granite island, and Great Room with see-through fireplace to the comfortable covered porch.
Also on tour is the outstanding 1.5-story Windermere by BCI-Bowen Custom Homes, on a coveted cul-de-sac lot! This is a brand new plan that is simply “wowing” homebuyers. An impressive 2-story entry opens up to the inviting, beamed Great Room with stone fireplace and gleaming hardwoods. The gourmet kitchen boasts a huge island, amazing cabinetry, sensational pantry with second oven, and lots of storage, and a handy flex room behind the kitchen area. The gracious master suite has generously sized “his” and “her” closets and serves as a most sumptuous place to retire at the end of the day.
The perennially popular Chesapeake II.1 UP by Hilmann Home Building is sure to please Parade goers. This new 1.5-story home was designed from a Grand Award Winning plan and features 4 bedrooms, with a spacious master suite on the first floor. An inviting Great Room with fireplace and built-ins opens to the kitchen and dining area, complete with a large island, granite countertops throughout, and a huge walk-in pantry and prep area. The master suite leads to the covered porch, while the master bath has a Euro-style walk-in shower, soaker tub, double granite vanities, and large closet.
Finally, while tour goers are in the neighborhood, they should make sure to check out KC Building & Design’s 2-story Sequoia II. With a fully appointed kitchen with granite island, custom cabinetry, walk-in pantry, and hearth room opening to patio, this home is ideally designed for families. Meanwhile, a fabulous wine bar that opens to a formal dining room and a gracious Great Room featuring a second fireplace ensures the homes is perfect for entertaining crowds both big and small. Other thoughtful design additions—including a fifth bedroom/office and half bath off kitchen and a cute book nook, among others—make this home a standout.
“As well, we have a variety of homes under construction to tempt homebuyers,” says community manager Craig Hauser. “Come out and enjoy the quiet country feel of our community while being just minutes away from the convenient BluHawk shopping area and all it has to offer. Also not to be missed are the Overland Park Arboretum just down the street with its fun, year-round activities and the nearby Heritage Park, with its sports activity areas, off-leash dog park, golf course, picnic shelters, and more. And we’re conveniently situated with great access to 69 and 169 highways, so it doesn’t take long to get around the city.”
The community has walkout, daylight, and level home sites and large, private cul-de-sac lots available for those who have their hearts set on building.
“We have homes that will appeal to everyone: 2 story, 1.5 story, and reverse 1.5 story,” adds community manager Leslie Young. “And with 13 spec homes up and available at various stages of finish, we can find families their perfect home before school starts up again!”
In total, 47 lots are available in Riverstone’s first phase, and varied home plans help ensure the community is anything but cookie cutter, with prices ranging from the low $500,000’s.
The second phase will include the neighborhood pool and clubhouse—with workout facilities—next to a large pond. As well, Darol Rodrock’s groundbreaking Moms’ Council will be active in Riverstone. An array of family-friendly activities are planned thanks to the Council, including spring egg hunts, Memorial Day pool-opening parties, July 4th bike-a-thons, outdoor movie nights, and pumpkin-carving contests.
Another huge benefit? The Mill at Riverstone falls within the coveted Blue Valley School District. This community offers the best of both worlds: country quiet, while still being centrally located—and with award-winning schools, no less!
