Taking a Look Around Chapel Ridge in Parkville

Simply put, there are more than a few questions that will arise once you decide to build a home from the ground up? From the builder you hire to all of the various material selections along the way, it is certainly a process! For those familiar with our homebuilding blog, you know that we like to cover a wide range of topics. Whether that be general tips to ensure your home build goes smoothly or highlighting specific listings on the market, we take pride in bringing some diversity to these weekly blogs! Having said all of that, this week’s post is going to focus solely on featuring one of the communities we build in, Chapel Ridge. 

Throughout this blog post, we’ll provide some general information about the community, such as the school district it’s located in, nearby attractions and any community-specific amenities. If this all has you intrigued, you’ll want to keep reading, as it will be followed by a walk-through of one of our recently sold homes in Chapel Ridge. So, without further ado, let’s hop right in and take a look at why Parkville could be the perfect landing spot for any prospective homebuyer!

Deeper Look at Chapel Ridge


Chapel Ridge is located in Parkville, MO, “just north of 45 Hwy, and Northwest Hampton Road on Union Chapel Rd, nestled in the beautiful rolling hills of southern Platte County.” We’ll discuss the Park Hill School District, as well as nearby entertainment, shortly, but it’s important to note that the city of Parkville has consistently grown in recent years. Just like the rest of the Northland, this is becoming a popular area for anyone looking to find their forever home!

School District

This community is located in the Park Hill School District and feeds into the following schools: Union Chapel Elementary, Lakeview Middle School, and Park Hill High School. The Park Hill School District is routinely recognized for academic excellence. While there are a number of barometers to prove this point, one glaring sign is the sheer number of awards given to their educators and staff members year in and year out. Take a look HERE to see all of the awards they received at the 2019 Excellence in Education Banquet. I would certainly say these are schools that take their education seriously and put their students in position to succeed after high school!

A second factor we take a look at is a school district’s mission statement. As stated on their official website, their mission is “Through the expertise of an engaged staff, the Park Hill School District provides a relevant education in a safe, caring environment to prepare each student for success in life.” All in all, a perfect foundation to get your kiddos from first grade through senior year in their educational career.

Community Amenities

Particularly in 2020, where new communities are being developed with all kinds of perks, it’s important to have community-specific amenities for residents. For homeowners, these are great ways to provide some entertainment value without having to leave the comfort of your neighborhood. In Chapel Ridge, a few favorites amongst residents include two neighborhood swimming pools, a clubhouse, fishing ponds, walking trails and easy access to major highways!

What All is Nearby?

As briefly mentioned earlier, the Northland has become a booming market for prospective home buyers in recent years. With that being the case, you’ll have no shortage of shopping, dining and entertainment opportunities when living in Chapel Ridge. For a little bit of each of those, you’re roughly 10 minutes away from Zona Rosa and 15 minutes from the Legends at Village West. Whether you’re looking to spend a weekend day shopping or just want to grab a bite to eat, both of these areas can solve those needs!

Reaching the airport will be a breeze, as KCI is also just 15 minutes away! In terms of recreational activities, you’re close by the Platte County Community Center, The Springs Aquatic Center, Barry Woods 24 AMC Theater and so much more! In conclusion, you certainly won’t have to worry about any lack of activities available.
