Incomparable price points, unparalleled amenities, and unmatched value protection: All three are trademarks of Stonebridge, one of the most popular developments in Darol Rodrock’s impressive 35-year-plus career. Comprised of four neighborhoods—Stonebridge Meadows, Stonebridge Trails, Stonebridge Park, and Stonebridge Village—Stonebridge is perfectly situated between Ridgeview and Black Bob along 167th Street. And this fall’s Parade of Homes is an ideal time to discover all that this exceptional community has to offer, with a superb 12 homes to tour.

 

“In Stonebridge Park, we have four beautiful furnished homes that we’re very excited about!” says community manager Abby Tripp. “This includes a variety of floor plans that cater to everyone, including 1.5-story, 2-story and reverse 1.5-story builds.”

 

Among them is the award-winning Emery II by James Engle Custom Homes. This home is filled with elegance at every turn—from the gorgeous open kitchen with oversized island and granite tops to the Great Room with soaring ceilings and see-thru fireplace to the covered patio.

 

Next up is Roeser Home’s Chloe II, a rare open 2 story with 10-foot vaulted ceilings on the first floor. The main level includes an extra-large kitchen and breakfast room, family-sized mudroom, and bonus “flex room.”

 

Dusselier & Marks Homes’ Austin is a Gold Award-winning plan that boasts 11-foot ceilings, a master suite with 2 large, walk-in closets, a custom master bath, and more fine touches that wowed judges in Parades of past.

 

Finally, KC Builders & Design offers its gorgeous Chalet XP, complete with stunning Great Room with custom beams and a dramatic 2-story stone fireplace. Meanwhile, the lower level boasts a walk-up bar—the perfect place to linger with company.

 

“Along with our homes entered in the Parade, we also have four specs that are ready for immediate occupancy and other spec homes that might fit your move-in timeline,” adds Abby.

 

Over in Stonebridge Meadows, some 3 homes are in the Parade—with a variety of additional homes ready to entice buyers, including a completed 2-story by Prieb Homes. “We have 12 different plans under construction, including ranches and 2-story and reverse 1.5-story homes,” says community manager Mike Slaven.

 

Ready to wow tour goers is the Cypress II by Chris George Homes. This popular 4-bedroom, 3-bath, reverse 1.5 story features an open floor plan with impressive barrel-ceiling foyer and both the master bedroom and office/bedroom on the main level.

 

“Meanwhile, the Addilyn III by Rob Washam Homes is a 4-bedroom, 3.5-bath, 2 story that features a wonderful wrap-around front porch and custom cook’s kitchen with enameled white cabinets, center island, quartz countertops, and breakfast area,” adds Mike.

 

Completing the selection is the Brooklyn by Prieb Homes. From the fabulous front porch through the open concept plan—complete with formal dining, serving pantry, and sumptuous kitchen with quartz countertops—this home is designed to please.

But not to be left out of the fun is Stonebridge Trails, with 5 outstanding entries on this year’s Parade.

 

“The builders have given us their best,” says community manager Joan Jacquin. “Chris George has a 5-bedroom 2 story that’s a crowd favorite. Folks love the staircase in the back of the house. And Doyle Construction has outperformed itself in the Rockford, a 4-bedroom with a separate office. Its spiral staircase is a knockout!”

 

And the reverse 1.5-story Marietta III by D&M Homes is beyond comfortable, according to tour goers, says Joan. “You’ll find 4 bedrooms—2 on the first floor and 2 on the lower level. Meanwhile, Rob Washam Homes has outdone itself in the Landon plan, complete with 4 bedrooms and an office. This home boasts high ceilings, lots of light, and the kitchen is a dream. Finally, we have the favorite Makenna by Gabriel Homes, with 4 bedrooms, a spacious office, plenty of built-ins, and large kitchen.”

 

All these communities promise protected home value and a slew of amenities never before offered in this price range. An expansive trail system links all four neighborhoods, offering residents an easy way to make use of the extended development’s four pools, various playgrounds, and two richly appointed clubhouses, one with workout facilities.

 

If all these amenities don’t keep families busy enough, the community is home to a vibrant Moms’ Council, which plans family-friendly get-togethers that not only forge friendships but favorite family memories. From pool parties to horse-drawn carriage rides, each season offers a new delight for kids of all ages.

 

Also accessible from these trails is Prairie Creek Elementary School, which has repeatedly won the Governor’s Achievement Award. Rodrock has dedicated adjacent land for a middle school, which is projected for a September 2019 opening.

When Jesse and Mallory Ramsey began the search for a new home, they knew they wanted a vibrant community full of families with young children. So when they stumbled upon Rodrock Development’s Arbor Lake, they were delighted to find the best of both worlds—a quiet neighborhood with minimal traffic but abundant friendly families!

 

“What initially attracted us to Arbor Lake was its relatively remote and quiet location, yet it has easy access to any of the amenities in Johnson County and Kansas City,” Jesse says. “And one of the main differences we noticed in Arbor Lake compared to other communities was the abundance of families with children the same age as our children. It was important for us to have neighborhood friends for our kids to grow up with.”

 

The Ramseys are thrilled with their new home, which Jesse says is very well built. “It’s obvious great attention to detail was shown during the whole process. Our builder, Rick Hoelting, was great to work with, which made the whole home-buying process much easier. The excellent school system for our two young children was the cherry on top.”

 

As the family enters the fall months, there are plenty of neighborhood gatherings to look forward to—including Halloween fun. “I think our favorite thing will be watching our kids grow up in what we hope will be a tight-knit community,” Jesse says. “In the two months we’ve been here, we’ve already made several friends in the neighborhood, and with more homes going up, we’re sure to make many more!”

 

Located at Prairie Star Parkway and Clare Road, Arbor Lake is anything but a typical, cookie-cutter development. Quiet, privacy-enhancing cul-de-sacs, a new pool, a picturesque 3.8-acre lake, and plenty of plans for growth make the community a standout. What’s more, Arbor Lake is within the award-winning Olathe School district and close to St. James Academy, so growing families like the Ramseys are perfectly situated to grow and flourish.

 

Even better? Arbor Lake has several homes that are nearing completion, so you can find your dream home in time to ring in the holidays.

 

Just 30 days from completion is the Emery Reverse by James Engle Custom Homes. Beautifully appointed, this 4-bedroom, 3-bath abode has an impressive foyer, Great Room that leads to an open kitchen with enameled cabinets, gorgeous hardwood floors, and a covered deck. With a bar, rec room, and 2 bedrooms and a bathroom in the walkout basement, this home offers fabulous style for just $468,596.

 

Prieb Homes also has several 2-story homes soon-to-be available, including the Paxton III, the Harlow V, and the Levi II. All feature 5 bedrooms, 4 baths, and 3-car garages, luxurious master suites, and stunning kitchens. Each fantastic abode is ready for personalization, so homebuyers can pick their favorite finishes.

 

Harding Homes’ Lindenwood is some 30 days from completion, and this 5-bedroom, 4.5-bath home is stunning. Everything about this $469,500 build is oversized, including its two-story entry, extra deep third car garage, 8-foot tall garage doors, and 14-foot-by-14-foot covered patio.

 

Also some 30 days out is Drees Built Homes’ Galloway II for $424,500. With 4 bedrooms, 3.5 baths, and an incredibly functional and open floor plan, this home is filled with thoughtful extras that make it a homebuyer favorite. A towering entry, formal dining and living room, gourmet kitchen, and butler’s pantry—with built-in wine and wine glass rack—are just some of the “wow” factors this plan provides.

 

Also not to be missed is Mark Lovsky Homes’ reverse 1.5-story Aubrey, slated to be ready in December at $421,950. Offering 4 bedrooms and 3 baths, this open plan has a wall of windows in the Great Room and an unbelievable kitchen with custom enameled cabinets, granite counter tops, gas cook top, and more. The master suite is equally sumptuous with vaulted ceilings, walk-in shower, soaker tub, and laundry room off the master closet.

 

Finally, Gabriel Homes’ Samuel is 120 days from completion but priced to move today. This home offers a hard-to-find fourth garage, welcoming front porch, and an open concept 2-story floor plan that utilizes so much space. The kitchen is full of upgrades, including enameled cabinets, granite countertops, a built-in hutch, butler’s pantry, and a walk-in pantry with handy planning desk.
