The Spring Parade of Homes has come and gone. The people who came to see what was new and exciting at Cider Mill Ridge at the National were not disappointed.
The community sold out of its existing inventory and many customers returned to pick a lot and build their dream home with SAB Homes. It was one of the best Parades for drawing significant traffic to Cider Mill Ridge, according to Chris Powell with Better Homes and Gardens Real Estate Kansas City Homes.
“Maybe it was the beautiful weather, maybe it was the pool and park, maybe it was the quality homes being built by SAB Homes, maybe it was the schools, but whatever the reasons this year’s new-home season has come in with a roar,” Powell said.
Change is good and Cider Mill Ridge is making all the right changes to attract buyers from new families looking for excellent schools to the empty-nesters who want 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 was the addition of Powell and his team at Better Homes and 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, children attend Graden Elementary School, a nationally recognized Blue Ribbon School, a “Leader in Me School” and recipient of the Missouri Gold Star School Award. Students also attend Plaza 6th Grade Center, Lakeview Middle School and Park Hill South High School.
Another benefit for new residents of Cider Mill Ridge is their ability to use the amenities at The National until the community pool is completed, including its pool complex, tennis courts, Family Activity Center and its casual and fine dining. Of course, if they fall in love with The National, memberships are always an option allowing them to enjoy these amenities all the time along with two 18-hole championship golf courses.
If The National amenities are not enough, residents may walk or run beside the Missouri River while visiting English Landing Park or become one with nature while walking or running in Parkville’s very own Nature Sanctuary, all 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.
Homeowners also 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.
