Development shown off at open house
Leavenworth County residents gathered at the grand opening of the Rocking C Equestrian Estates community on Saturday.
The grand opening featured a barbeque, live music and information regarding the new community located in rural Tonganoxie, south of Evans Road and 253rd Street.
The community is intended to represent a quiet, rural atmosphere with an appreciation for nature and land for horses.
Equestrian Estates presently has two custom-built homes constructed. More are in the works for the 280-acre community. There are 55 lots, which range from two-and-a-half to 17 acres apiece, according to Sandi Beck, sales associate for Reece & Nichols Realtors.
Five of the lots have been sold already. Currently, 50 are available, according to the community's Web site, www.rockingc.com.
"All of the homes will be custom built," Beck said. "It's a great new area with ponds, riding trails and a lake that's eight-plus acres."
Robert Conley owns the land, which used to serve as his childhood farmstead.
