With Halloween decorations tucked away for another year and temperatures dropping, you may be tempted to hunker down for the winter. But you’d also be missing out on more than two dozen beautifully appointed homes in vibrant Rodrock Development communities — all ready to welcome your family home for the holidays.
In fact, this is an ideal time to buy, with interest rates low and inventory up. And there’s no neighborhood that does the holidays quite like a Rodrock Development community. Neighborhood get-togethers, luminary-lit streets and horse-drawn carriage rides are just some of the events that build a sense of community, not to mention family memories for years to come.
At the Greens of Chapel Creek in Shawnee, a golfer’s dream abode is ready for holiday entertaining.
“This beautiful reverse 11/2-story by Hilmann Home Building backs to the fairway of a scenic par 5, so time on the covered deck is rejuvenating to the soul,” said Bob Sloan, a longtime Rodrock marketing agent.
Never miss a local story.
In Shawnee’s Grey Oaks, a James III Home sits nestled up against a neighborhood park, which is part of the greater Johnson County trail system, featuring a gentle creek, woods and a jogging/bike trail.
“This two-story has five bedrooms and 51/2 baths,” Sloan said. “The home is just past the paint stage, and there’s a finished model for guidance in selecting the remaining finishes, if desired. The home has many wonderful features: large great room with stone fireplace, large pantry and outdoor living area, complete with a stone-faced fireplace.”
Grayson Place, at 119th and Lone Elm Road, has nine distinctive homes available for the holidays, ranging from maintenance-provided villas to a five-bedroom Prieb Home ideally situated at the end of a cul-de-sac. There are ample reverse 11/2-story abodes with walkout and daylight lower levels, three-car garages, and lots that back to green space. With a range of pricing and floor plans, Grayson Place has a home to meet every family’s individual needs, not to mention holiday entertaining needs.
Olathe’s Forest View has five homes at the ready, including Summit Custom Homes’ Sterling, a two-story with 5-inch plank wood flooring accenting its open, flowing floor plan. Two J.S. Robinson homes — the Aspen I and Aspen II — offer large great rooms and kitchens, perfect for family gatherings.
Finally, the community offers the ever-popular Rosemount from J.S. Robinson and Allure Luxury Homes’ Reflections, a unique reverse 11/2-story featuring both a master bedroom suite and a junior suite, complete with walk-in closet and private bath.
“The hills, trees and abundant wildlife give you a feeling of peace,” said Linda Roberts, a Rodrock marketing agent. “Forest View is truly a destination to call home.”
Likewise, the vibrant and family-friendly Stonebridge communities in Olathe have generous choices should a new home be on your holiday wish list.
“In Stonebridge Meadows, we have the Capri by Rob Washam Construction,” said Ann Knickrehm, a longtime Rodrock marketing agent. “It’s a reverse 11/2-story with a walkout lower level, covered deck and soaring ceilings perfect for that large tree with all the trimmings.
“We also have the Middleton II by Hilmann Home Building: a stunning two-story, five-bedroom home with a beautiful stone fireplace perfect for holiday gatherings. A formal dining room, large breakfast bar and breakfast room provide plenty of dining space for all.”
The neighborhood also boasts a two-story by Higgins Building Company with a great open kitchen and custom cabinets and the Charleston II by Wynne Homes, a two-story, five-bedroom marvel.
“This open plan sets the stage for holiday traditions — intimate to extravagant — with expansive granite counters for serving your holiday favorites,” Knickrehm said. “From formal to casual, this home is entertaining at its best.”
Stonebridge Village has six homes ready for immediate move-in, all at an astounding price point that leaves plenty leftover for a holiday with all the trimmings. These beautiful first-floor living models also offer the added bonus of no shoveling, because all of these three- and four-bedroom villas are maintenance free, allowing you to truly enjoy your holidays.
Stonebridge Park has eight new builds just waiting to be filled with festive fun. Whether you’re looking for four bedrooms or five, these homes are loaded with upgrades, including some with gourmet kitchens, master bedrooms with attached laundry, granite counter tops, walkout lower levels, and more. Stonebridge Park even has the award-winning Middleton IV by Hilmann Home Building on a premium lot, ready to make someone’s holiday dreams come true.
“We have a nice amount of inventory ready for occupancy, just in time for the holidays,” said Brenda Sanders, president of Rodrock & Associates, Realtors. “Couple that with the current low interest rates, and it’s an exciting time to buy. Some of our recent buyers are excited to participate in the Mom’s Council holiday events, complete with a horse-drawn carriage. It’s a great way to meet new neighbors in the winter time.”
With so many homes at the ready, you’re sure to find the perfect fit for you and yours. And what better gift to give your family than a beautiful home in a friendly neighborhood where your loved ones can grow and flourish?
