When the Wagners set their eyes westward to find a new home, they found a most unexpected gem in Rodrock Development’s Arbor Lake. Located at Prairie Star Parkway and Clare Road, Arbor Lake is anything but a typical, cookie-cutter development. Quiet, privacy-enhancing cul-de-sacs, a new pool, a picturesque 3.8-acre lake, and plenty of plans for growth made the community a standout to the family.
“We liked the neighborhood because it’s not overdeveloped,” says Brent Wagner. “In Arbor Lake you get a sense of rural-ness, but you still enjoy all the benefits of being close to southern and central Johnson County. The community’s proximity to K-10, K-7, and 435 was ideal, too.”
The Wagners look forward to growing with the community, Brent says. “We’re excited about the future plans for Arbor Lake. The pool was a contributing factor to our decision, as well as the future development around the lake and the walking trails. And we appreciate that community manager Debi Donner is there for any questions we have. The neighbors have all been very welcoming, and we can’t wait to make the most of our cul-de-sac lot. It’s fantastic because our kids, who are 8 and 5, can ride bikes, play catch, and more without worries about traffic. In our former neighborhood, we were on a corner lot in a main road in the neighborhood, so traffic was always a concern. Arbor Lake is simply a great fit for us.”
What’s more, Arbor Lake is within the Olathe School district and close to St. James Academy, so growing families like the Wagners are perfectly situated to grow and flourish.

Even better? Arbor Lake has four homes that are move-in ready, so you can have a new home for the holidays. In fact, these houses come with a little something special in this season of giving: Rodrock Development is offering a “Home for the Holidays Special” in which $1,500 in closing costs will be paid for those lucky few under contract before December 31st!
“We have Rob Washam’s 2-story, 5-bedroom, 4-bath Riley III, which won First Place in the Fall Parade of Homes for Distinctive Plan & Design,” says Debi. “Families love the fifth bedroom/flex room on the main floor. It has a truly beautiful kitchen with a walk-in pantry, butler’s pantry, and a long granite island, perfect for large gatherings.”
“Rob Washam is always so meticulous in detail and takes pride in how he constructs and finishes his homes,” continues Debi. “The lower level is remarkably open and full of potential for entertaining, whether it be in the Great Room, formal dining room, around the large kitchen island, or out on the deck/patio.”
The master suite is not only romantic — with an oversized freestanding tub and his-and-her vanities — but also functional with a large master closet along with the laundry room, accessible to all rooms on the second level.
Also available is the Ridgeview, a 2-story, 4-bedroom, 3.5-bath plan by Reilly Homes. “This home is spacious and has a lovely soaring entry, which leads into a true den with a see-through fireplace into the Great Room,” says Debi. “The dining room is huge and perfect for holiday gatherings, while arched doorways add a gorgeous stylistic touch. The master suite is exquisite, while all secondary bedrooms have either a private or shared bath.”
Rounding out the impressive selection of homes included in the promotion are two Cassidy floor plans by Darol Rodrock Homes.
“The Cassidy is a truly exceptional 2-story plan that was Pick of the Parade First Runner Up in the Fall Parade of Homes,” says Debi. “It features a flex room in the front of the home ideal for guests or for use as a playroom or office. It’s the perfect space in which to organize a busy family or to supervise kids during homework time. An expanded 3-car garage offers extra storage space or room for that oversized vehicle, while the dining room and Great Room are bright and airy.”
And this fantastic community is continuing to grow with five new specs under construction with availability by spring of 2018 and 10 more specs to follow the rest of the year. There are also a number of lots for those who have their hearts set on building. A wide variety of lots — including daylight and walkouts — provide for a variety of unique floor plans and ensure the community is anything but commonplace. Come discover the beauty of Arbor Lake — and grow with this one-of-a-kind community!
