Spring is in the air and with it the promise of warm weather, green grass and flowers. At Brookwood Farms, spring also means new homes are sprouting and several are ready for immediate occupancy.
“This is a great time to come out to visit Brookwood Farms,” said Terri Marks, who markets Brookwood Farms for Reece & Nichols Realtors. “We not only have new homes available immediately, but also homes under construction and buyers can still choose their finishes.”
The builders in Brookwood Farms use quality building practices and materials which have resulted in more energy-efficient homes. This translates into lower utility costs for homeowners, a benefit especially appreciated during the cold winter months.
While some south Johnson County neighborhoods do not have gas heat available, Brookwood Farms residents enjoy the warmth of gas heat in cold weather.
“Gas heat is much more efficient than electric heat when temperatures are below freezing, which saves homeowners from having sky-high electric bills,” said Susan Heenan, on-site agent at Brookwood Farms.
“Residents have been pleased with their utility bills,” Marks said. “Several homeowners have reported to have monthly gas bills under $100 this winter.”
Brookwood Farms resident Brenda Osborne said, “We came to Brookwood Farms to downsize from our larger home in Shawnee. We have been thrilled with our home and pleased with the lower utility costs that result from better windows and insulation than what was in our older home. We love everything about our house.”
Those who want to see the quality of construction that creates these energy-efficient homes in Brookwood Farms are urged to visit the community.
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 new furnished model home is a reverse 11/2-story Marietta II plan with two bedrooms on the main level and two on the lower level. This home features a luxurious master suite with two walk-in closets, including one that adjoins the laundry room, a soaker tub and a walk-in shower. It is priced at $320,040.
A second furnished model, the Birmingham II, is a true ranch with three bedrooms and two full bathrooms. This home has an open layout, walk-in pantry and the master closet connected to the laundry room. It is priced at $285,292.
Three other inventory homes are available:
• Another Marietta II plan, priced at $317,558.
• An award-winning reverse 11/2-story Charleston plan on a walkout lot priced at $312,000, which Marks said has been getting rave reviews. This plan has two bedrooms on the main floor and two on the lower level. The master suite has a walk-in closet that adjoins the laundry room.
• Another Birmingham II plan on a walkout home site, priced at $301,042.
In addition to quality homes that fit a variety of lifestyles, Brookwood Farms offers ample space between homes so that residents have a sense of privacy.
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.
Brookwood Farms 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 opened last fall and is just around the corner. Spring Hill School District has earned 26 Standard of Excellence Awards and two Governor’s Achievement awards.
“We have a wonderful mix of residents at Brookwood Farms,” Marks said. “In addition to families taking advantage of the excellent schools, we also have buyers who are selling their larger homes to downsize. Our award-winning floor plans, quality construction and home prices starting under $300,000 are nearly impossible to find anywhere else.”
For a limited time, the builders at Brookwood Farms are 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.
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.
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.
