There are just three tour days left in this year’s Spring Parade of Homes, which means you shouldn’t delay in discovering the beauty of Rodrock Development’s Grayson Place. Located at 119th and Lone Elm in Olathe, Grayson Place is a most compelling community that offers something for everyone—at the perfect size and price.
“From first-time homebuyers to those looking to retire, we have three distinct areas to satisfy all types of home searches,” says Craig Hauser, a Rodrock marketing agent. “We offer single family homes, as well as two maintenance-provided areas, including The Villas (free standing), and The Ranch Villas, which are attached homes in four-plexes.”
Tour-goers have been impressed with the variety of housing options, Craig says. “Parade traffic has been strong to say the least—with sales and lot holds brisk! We have some Villa inventory ready to go within 45 days and beautiful new-home sites have been added for the single-family villas, including some that back to trees and others to open green space. They’re awesome!”
Gabriel Homes Inc. has two gorgeous model homes ready for Parade goers. Both are reverse 1.5 story with the master and a bedroom/office on the main floor, and two additional bedrooms in the lower level. Fine finishes abound, including granite kitchen countertops, self-closing drawers in the kitchen and bathrooms, a huge walk-in pantry, a sprinkler system, and extra-large master closet. In fact, Gabriel Homes’ Richmond plan was the Fall 2015 Pick of the Parade Grand Award Winner and received First Place for Distinctive Plan and Design!
And an important bonus for many house hunters is that the monthly HOA costs of $120 covers lawn mowing, fertilization, edging, snow removal, and spring start-up and winterization of the sprinkler system. With prices starting in the $330,000’s, these homes are an incredible find! Walkout, daylight, and level lots are available.
Still for those who’d prefer total exterior maintenance attended to, they need look no further than the community’s four-plexes, which are starting soon. “Built by Orin Sweeney, of Sweeney Construction, Inc., these floor plans are fantastic,” Craig says. “There are soaring 12-foot ceilings in the Great room, dining area, and kitchen. The master suite features vaulted ceilings, a huge walk-in tiled shower, and a spacious closet, conveniently opening to the laundry. In our first building, there are only three units still available, however: two at $275,000 and one at $280,000. These are totally maintenance free! Exterior paint, roof, insurance, and lawn is all taken care of, plus snow removal over 2-inches on the driveway, sidewalk, and porch, and water for the sprinkler system—all for just $300 per month.”
But tour-goers may also want to pay special attention to the beautiful single-family home specs by Chris George Homes. The popular Yorkshire plan has an amazing kitchen, featuring a huge island for dining and serving and a spacious pantry. Handy back stairs lead to the upper and lower levels, including a simply sumptuous master suite with huge walk-in shower and soaker tub. Also on the upper level is an oversized laundry, and three additional bedrooms, one with its own bath and the other two separated by a Jack-and-Jill bathroom.
“But homebuyers need to move fast,” Craig cautioned, “as we have just three home sites left in our single-family home area!”
Parade-goers should also visit the spectacular amenities for all three areas within Grayson Place, including two generously sized pools, a playground, pond with park benches, and walking trails. The community’s clubhouse has a fitness area, as well as an activity center that can be rented out for parties, complete with kitchen.
The neighborhood also has a vibrant Moms’ Council, which coordinates activities including egg hunts, pool parties, 4th of July celebrations, Halloween activities, holiday hayrides, Villa Bunko groups, and more. These gatherings are a fantastic way to meet new neighbors and develop lifelong memories and friendships.
Grayson Place truly offers the finest in housing options for every need—from families just starting out to empty nesters who have an eye on travel rather than yard work. All of these homes offer the protected home values that Rodrock Developments are renowned.
Still, diverse home styles and maintenance packages are only the beginning: With a community park and pond, two fantastic pools, a richly appointed clubhouse, and Millbrooke Elementary School and a new middle school under construction within walking distance, Grayson Place provides a suburban haven for families of every shape and size.
