Nestled at 165th Street and Black Bob Road amidst the larger Stonebridge community sits a neighborhood jewel: Rodrock Development’s Stonebridge Park.
Offering homes from the mid $300,000s to the $500,000s, Stonebridge Park features the best in Olathe living with unparalleled protected home value and a slew of amenities never before offered in this price range.
Need proof? Just talk to the thrilled residents who call Stonebridge Park home. Becky Seidler moved to the community in late August of 2013 from Spring Hill.
“Initially, we were drawn to this general area because it allowed us to reside in Olathe, yet still be a part of the Spring Hill School District,” Seidler said. “Staying within the Spring Hill School District was very important to our family. The neighborhoods along 167th Street are all Rodrock properties, and that appealed to our family, since we’ve heard so many great things about living in a Rodrock community. The choice to reside in Stonebridge Park came down to the design of home, the particular builder, KC Builders & Design Inc. in our case, as well as the proposed and existing amenities in this neighborhood.”
And those amenities, while common in Rodrock communities, are unheard of in most developments. Aside from upgraded entry monuments, lush landscaping and wrought-iron perimeter fencing around the larger Stonebridge community, a trail system offers residents an easy way to make use of the extended neighborhood’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 neighborhood trails is Prairie Creek Elementary School, which won the 2013 Governor’s Award. Rodrock has dedicated adjacent land for a new middle school now in the planning stages.
Katie George and her family were attracted to Stonebridge Park for just these excellent schools but soon discovered there was so much more to the community.
“We were immediately impressed with all the amenities that Stonebridge Park has to offer. In fact, I’m on the social committee for the Rodrock Development Mom’s Council for Stonebridge Park.”
A concept created by Darol Rodrock decades ago to help new neighborhoods get off to a great start, the Mom’s Council hosts annual year-round events such as Memorial weekend pool opening parties and holiday horse-drawn hayrides, all of which help new neighbors get to know each other and have fun.
“We really like that we have so much in common with so many of the families in Stonebridge Park,” George added. “They have kids the same age; they have the same mindset. Our neighbors are our friends. The community is safe and an all-around great place for us to call home.”
Kiley McAllister and her family have had the pleasure of calling Stonebridge Park home for three years. “One thing that appealed to us was that we were able to bring in our own builder into the community to build our home. We realized once we moved what a sense of community is here in our neighborhood. Rodrock has been great at supporting our neighborhood events and community activities. I look forward to seeing the future and what’s to come at Stonebridge Park.”
Seidler couldn’t agree more. “Our favorite part about calling Stonebridge Park home is really the neighbors. We’ve enjoyed getting to know everyone through the different activities. The horse-drawn carriage during the holidays, the Easter egg hunt and the neighborhood trip to a baseball game. They’re all fun ways to connect with people. That’s something that was missing from our previous neighborhood. We feel like we really made a great decision and picked a great place to call home.”
Stonebridge Park truly is a community dedicated to families with high-end schools, playgrounds, pools, clubhouses and more, all within an easy stretch of the legs. And with the more than 1,200 acres of Heritage Park close by, residents can enjoy fishing, boating, sail boarding, picnicking, jogging, bicycling and horseback riding trails, athletic fields for team sports, an off-leash area for dogs, and an 18-hole championship golf course and driving range.
“What sets Stonebridge Park apart is the variety of builders, plans and architecture available at value pricing,” said Ed Stephenson, one of Stonebridge Park’s longtime marketing agents. “We offer a premium setting from a proven professional developer and homes from builders who’ve earned stellar reputations. We make the home buying or building process an exciting and stress-free experience. We currently have four unique homes available for occupancy and over 20 others under construction for sale. Our newest plat of more than 40 lots is almost sold out and plans are under way for our next phase. Exciting times!”
