As the summer begins to slow, and students prepare for the upcoming school year, Persimmon Pointe is just starting to heat up. Located next to some of Olathe’s finest schools — all within walking distance — Persimmon Pointe has homes priced in the $270,000s to $300,000s range.
Why Persimmon Pointe? Aside from being family friendly and competitively priced, it has great floor plans, a great location and great value. Prospective homeowners are eager to take advantage of all this vibrant, northwest Olathe, new-home community has to offer.
According to Landmarketing’s Housing and Subdivision Analysis, last month Persimmon Pointe tied for third place on the 2014 June Top Subdivisions list. Showing signs that they are not slowing down, Persimmon Pointe filed for six building permits.
“If you haven’t been by the community in the past few months, there is a lot that’s changed,” said co-marketer Cathy Rew, “Homes have been going up on every street.”
Never miss a local story.
Along with recent custom build jobs, it’s not the only thing new happening at Persimmon Pointe. Plans for a new entry monument on 127th and Stonegate are in the works. Construction for the new monument is slated to begin within the next few weeks.
As Johnson County has grown over the past few decades, prices of new homes in Olathe have increased steadily. In 2012, the average price of a new home in the city rose to over $340,000. Today, Persimmon Pointe is one of the few places where buyers still can find new single-family homes priced in the upper $200,000s, and with land prices and building costs on the rise, it could be one of the last.
Three furnished model homes by Summit Custom Homes, Prieb Homes and Sallee Homes are open for touring. If you haven’t explored the model row recently, Sallee Homes has taken the opportunity to listen to customer demands. Sallee has since updated parts of its model home’s interior, truly making it a must-see.
Nine new spec homes are currently available for purchase. They represent five two-story plans and three reverse 11/2-story plans, priced from $264,950 to the low $300,000s.
Teresa Acklin, community sales manager, said, “Persimmon Pointe is one of the only new-home communities at this price range to display three fully furnished models.”
Several plans are available for immediate move-in or scheduled for completion within 30 days; others will be finished within the next few months. With many homes in early stages of development, now is the time for buyers to meet with builders to make design changes to fit their lifestyle needs.
Buyers who want a home built to their custom specifications can choose from over 40 available home sites, many of which are suited for walkout and daylight basements. Most lots are priced in the mid $50,000s, values hard to find in today’s market.
Persimmon Pointe is located in an unspoiled corner of northwest Olathe at 127th Street and Hedge Lane, just one mile west of Kansas 7. Its proximity to highways Kansas 10, Interstate 35 and Interstate 435 provides quick access to shopping, dining, entertainment and job centers, but that’s not the only reason why buyers move there. Acklin said Persimmon Pointe also is attractive to buyers not only because of its easy access to highway networks and schools, but also for its rural surroundings.
And the area will remain that way. Hundreds of acres of parkland and conservation areas in the vicinity ensure that life at Persimmon Pointe will never be far from nature’s doorstep. Living at Persimmon Pointe affords families a variety of opportunities to enjoy some of the best public parks and recreational facilities in Johnson County.
At Persimmon Pointe, children are never far from home. Resident students can walk to all new, highly rated Olathe District schools. Prairie Center Elementary is only two blocks away, Mission Trail Middle School is less than a mile to the west, and five blocks south is the site of the future Olathe West High School, scheduled to open in 2017.
Persimmon Pointe’s model home builders, Summit Custom Homes, Prieb Homes and Sallee Homes, are among the best known home builders in the Kansas City area. From their portfolios of dozens of house plans, buyers can choose from many different styles, options and finishes to personalize homes to suit their distinctive needs, styles and tastes.
With so many offerings, choices at Persimmon Pointe are practically limitless. Outside builders are also welcome with developer approval.
Starting Aug. 1, the developer is offering homebuyers and their agents a chance to each win trip vouchers when purchasing a new home. To learn more about this opportunity, come by and see Acklin or Rew.
