Grayson Place, the Rodrock Development community just east of Kansas 7 highway at 119th Street and Valley Road in Olathe, has new two-story homes ready for touring. Move-in availability ranges from immediate to 120 days, and home prices start in the low $300,000s.
Homes in Grayson Place feature open first-floor layouts, three or four bedrooms, 21/2 to 31/2 bathrooms, an abundance of interior finishes, energy efficiency features, 9-foot basement ceilings and three-car garages.
According to Darol Rodrock, founder and owner of Rodrock Development, Grayson Place is comprised of gently rolling prairie hills and mature trees.
“The community land plan was designed to eliminate through streets or busy intersections and preserve the tranquil setting,” Rodrock said.
Community amenities include two swimming pools, clubhouse, a lake with walking trails, new distinctive stone entrance monument, extensive common-area landscaping and wrought-iron perimeter fencing.
In addition to the new homes that are move-in ready now or nearing completion, more new homes are underway. Grayson Place is also set to open 31 more new home sites yet this year and is open to outside builders for custom build-jobs and spec homes, with developer approval. Some new sites are on cul-de-sacs backing to mature trees or a future City of Olathe park.

Grayson Place is served by the award-winning Olathe Unified School District. Forest View Elementary, Mission Trail Middle and Olathe Northwest High Schools are all nearby. The district recently announced the acquisition of property on 119th Street for the new Millbrooke Elementary School. Situated across 119th Street from the primary Grayson Place community entrance, the new school is slated to open fall 2014.
Curry Management Company has been retained to manage Grayson Place common area amenities and also oversee community activities, including year-round Rodrock Development Moms Council events. The Rodrock Development Moms Council is a unique concept created by Darol Rodrock decades ago to help new neighborhoods get off to a great start.
“For more than 35 years, locally owned Rodrock Development has delivered on its ‘building better communities’ promise, the company’s motto, and now numbers more than 80 new-home communities in its portfolio,” said Tom Langhofer, general manager for Rodrock Development. “More than 30,000 people come home to a Rodrock Development community in Johnson County everyday.”
