Rodrock’s Sundance Ridge: Award-Winning Homes, a Family-Friendly Community, Unparalleled Amenities

By  0 Comments


If a new home purchase is in your future, check out Rodrock Development’s Sundance Ridge community. “Sundance Ridge is our premier master plan community with three different neighborhoods including Big Sky, where you can build a custom home with one of Kansas City’s top home builders,” said Brian Rodrock, chief executive officer, Rodrock Development.

Rodrock Development has been building homes and communities in Johnson County for over 40 years. “If you look at the tradition and reputation of Rodrock, you’ll find we’re second to none,” said Jeff Gifford, Rodrock Development chief operating officer. “That’s because we’re ‘family taking care of family,’” Brian added. “We grew up here, raise our children here, and actively participate where we live, work and play.” If you’re in the market, let the Rodrock family help your family find your new home at Sundance Ridge.

Family-Centered and Community-Minded
Rodrock Development was established in 1981 by Darol Rodrock, Brian’s father and Jeff’s father-in-law. “There are more than 75 communities in Johnson County that we developed,” Brian said. “We have a long-term development record that you can see if you drive through our older communities and see families out playing and enjoying the community we created.” These neighborhoods are thriving and “this is impactful both to the city and homeowners in the protection of property values,” said Jeff. For over 40 years, Rodrock Development has created communities and homes with desired amenities and has facilitated building bonds of neighborliness through the Mom’s Council. “The Mom’s Council was started by my father in the early 1980s to fund activities inside each of our new communities like the Fourth of July bicycle parade, Easter Egg Hunts, hayrides and Santa Claus at Christmas.” It’s a great way for new homeowners and their families to meet each other and join fun, community-wide events.

Sundance Ridge: A Growing, Premier Rodrock Community
With every new community developed, Rodrock Development strives to bring something new and alluring to their homeowners. Clearly Rodrock Development is doing something right because they won five awards with the Spring 2023 Parade of Homes for the model homes at Sundance Ridge. Four top KC-based interior designers created the varied aesthetics for each of the model homes. “These designers created a lot of different looks and feels with the greatest trends, and people love the variety of what they’ve created,” Jeff affirmed.

“In addition to the beautiful homes, Sundance Ridge has a one-of-a-kind amenity package including a swimming pool, workout facility and clubhouse,” said Brian. Jeff added, “We also have pocket parks spread throughout the community like a reading park, butterfly park and playground park, in walking distance from your home. Plus, in the next phase of development, we’re going to build a lap pool and indoor gymnasium.” Brian interjected, “It’s going to be a community center that can double not just as an indoor sport and recreation facility, but as an indoor place to have Grandma and Grandpa’s 50th anniversary party.”

Located in south Overland Park at State Line and 175th Street, Sundance Ridge is away from the hustle and bustle of the city. “We chose this quiet setting for the trees and rolling hills, and ambiance of south Overland Park,” said Brian. Three neighborhoods are currently in development at Sundance Ridge: Red Fox Run, Archer’s Landing and Big Sky, where you can build a custom home with some of KC’s premier builders including Don Julian Builders and Walker Custom Homes. Jeff said, “We’re fortunate to have some of the best builders in the city that are currently building in Big Sky,” Jeff reported.

Rodrock Gives Back
Beyond the continued community development, both in terms of homes and relationships, Rodrock Development is committed to giving back to the residents in their communities. “We believe education is important so we have a Vision Scholarship for high school seniors of every single Rodrock community,” Brian said. Jeff added, “We also built a house in support of Braden’s Hope, an organization that helps fund childhood cancer research.” Rodrock Development also supports India Fest, the Kansas City Metropolitan Crime Commission, and FosterAdopt Connect, as well as other local charities. For Rodrock Development, giving back is as important as building communities.
