The Bluffs at Riverview in Shawnee is the third and final phase of the Riverview Community. Spectacular sites are available now, with the new phase offering an outstanding selection of quality builders and award-winning plans. Spanning 80 acres, this Don Julian and Mike Gipple community has more than 60 new home sites on a wooded hilltop location. With luxury residences, natural surroundings and beautiful landscaping, it’s easy to see why people want to call the Bluffs at Riverview home.

“The new phase of Riverview lies west of the existing homes at a higher elevation, giving wonderful views,” says Kathie Pierce with the Rob Ellerman Team. “There’s a variety of walkout, daylight and flat lots.”

Builders include New Mark Homes, Prieb Homes, Nick Zvacek Construction, R.L. Hoelting, First Choice Custom Homes, M.G. Crocker Homes, Comerio Corporation, Harding Homes, L/M Homes, Hilmann Home Builders, Don Julian Builders and more in conversation with agents for the community. These builders bring a terrific collection of two-story, reverse 1 1/2-story, ranch and 1 1/2-story homes to the community. At this time, wooded walkout lots are available with the skyline of downtown Kansas City to the east and natural scenic views to the west.  

Shawnee offers the balance of upscale living and the convenience of large-city amenities with a small, friendly hometown appeal.  

“Many people love to live in and want to stay in Shawnee,” Kathie says. “Shawnee has been ranked as one of the best cities in which to live for several reasons—accessibility to downtown Kansas City and the KCI airport, location to the Village West entertainment district and easy access to the highway systems.”

The De Soto School District consistently ranks in the top three districts in Kansas and is a big factor in the decision to live in Riverview. Mill Creek Middle is highly praised for its academics and staff, and Mill Valley High School is locally sought after with its high academic standards and excellence in sports. Riverview Elementary is conveniently located in the heart of the neighborhood, with lots available on three sides of the school. 

“Proximity to the elementary school makes it very convenient for primary students and their families to arrive quickly to school and events,” Kathie says.

Riverview offers several outdoor amenities, including easy access to parks and trail systems, with Stump and Garrett Park located just minutes from the neighborhood. Bike or jog the trails and utilize the playground equipment, soccer fields, baseball fields and basketball hoops. Meet neighbors, swim with friends and make lasting memories at the Riverview pool.

Riverview and the Bluffs at Riverview are marketed by the Rob Ellerman Team with Reece Nichols. Their award-winning model office is located at 4531 Mund Road in Shawnee. For more information, visit
