Those considering buying a new home this year should visit Brookwood Farms now to get a jump on the spring market. This southern Johnson County community has much to offer: all homes with three-car garages, a swimming pool under construction, a second phase now underway, low interest rates and help for buyers who need to sell an existing home.
“This is a great time to come out to visit Brookwood Farms,” said Terri Marks, who markets Brookwood Farms for ReeceNichols. “We have one completed furnished model and two other homes nearing completion that also will be furnished models, all of which will be for sale.”
The completed model is an award-winning Charleston reverse 11/2-story plan with four bedrooms, three full bathrooms and a three-car garage on a daylight cul-de-sac lot. This popular plan has an open living room/kitchen area with a walk-in pantry, pocket office and two bedrooms on the main level. The Charleston is priced at $314,490.
The Marietta II model is expected to be completed in mid-April. It is a four-bedroom, three-bathroom, reverse 11/2-story plan with a covered deck and three-car garage on a daylight lot and is priced at $317,088. This home features an open layout, spacious room sizes and a master suite with two walk-in closets. The laundry room is conveniently attached to the master closet. The finished lower level has a large rec room, game area and two additional bedrooms with another full bath.
The Williamsburg II two-story plan on a daylight lot also should be completed by mid-April. This family-friendly home has four bedrooms, 31/2 bathrooms, an open first floor with a formal dining room, spacious kitchen with walk-in pantry, stainless appliances and granite counters. The entry from the three-car garage includes a large boot bench. The second floor has four spacious bedrooms with walk-in closets, as well as a conveniently located laundry room. This home, with a covered deck, is priced at $319,900.
Brookwood Farms continues to have great success with its award-winning, energy-efficient homes. Residents in Brookwood Farms enjoy the benefits of lower utility costs in their newly built homes by Dusselier and Marks Homes.
“The use of new techniques and materials result in more energy-efficient homes,” said Leonard Marks of Dusselier and Marks Homes. “The use of whole-house wrap, blown cellulose wall insulation, a foam and caulk package, R-49 attic insulation, as well as low-E double-pane windows can be used to help create a draft-free home with lower utility costs.”
Spacious home sites, excellent value for the price, the southern Johnson County location and a highly rated school district continue to bring numerous potential buyers to Brookwood Farms in Spring Hill, just a short drive south of Olathe.
The experienced agents at Brookwood Farms have programs to help buyers sell their existing homes and also will consider trades and contingencies, giving buyers peace of mind when making the decision to purchase a new home.
In addition to quality homes that fit a variety of lifestyles, Brookwood Farms offers ample space between homes so residents have a sense of privacy. Standard features of all homes include stainless steel appliances, fully sodded yards, knock-down ceilings and custom cabinets with hidden hinges and 42-inch uppers.
In addition to the three model homes, Brookwood Farms currently has only three lots available in the first phase but Phase II should be ready for building by late summer or early fall. Those who are interested in the second phase may put their name on a waiting list for home site reservations.
Construction has begun on the neighborhood pool and cabana, also scheduled to open this year.
The Neighbor to Neighbor program in Brookwood Farms is in full swing with many social activities planned for the community. The social committee is gearing up for the annual Easter egg hunt.
“Families of all ages enjoy the fun — children, families, empty-nesters and singles,” Terri Marks said.
Brookwood Farms is adjacent to 199th Street and just minutes from U.S. 169 and U.S. 69. It is near entertainment, shopping and dining options as well as numerous outdoor activities with Sycamore Ridge Golf Course, the new Spring Hill Aquatic Center and Hillsdale Lake right in its backyard. Brookwood Farms has the serenity and security of a small-town atmosphere while being minutes from big-city amenities.
The community is within walking distance of the Spring Hill High School complex at 199th Street and Ridgeview Road. Elementary students attend the new Wolf Creek School, which is just around the corner. The Spring Hill School District has earned 26 Standard of Excellence Awards and two Governor’s Achievement awards.
For a limited time, the builder/developer at Brookwood Farms is offering the “Oohs and Ahhs” package to homebuyers for free. This package includes a three-car garage; hardwood floors in the entry, dining room and kitchen; tile floors in the master bathroom and one secondary bathroom; and iron spindles with wood end-caps. This represents over $14,000 in upgrades when building in Brookwood Farms.
Brookwood Farms’ many family-friendly features have been a huge draw for growing families. Those include large closets, walk-in pantries, boot benches and affordable packages to finish the lower level.
Dusselier and Marks Homes has many floor plans which can be customized to suit the needs of the homeowners. Buyers can also bring their own floor plans or builder. Large daylight, walkout and flat home sites are available and almost all fit a three-car garage.
