2016 has been a year of substantial growth for Rodrock Development – a testament to three decades worth of business done right and an unfailing commitment to families. This year’s growth includes two promising communities, including Olathe’s Arbor Woods and Persimmon Hills. Each offers potential homebuyers the chance to find a quality home in a one-of-a-kind community, with the value protection for which Rodrock Development is renowned.
Arbor Woods, located at Canyon Drive and 125th Terrace, is a community ideally designed for families of every shape and size. Within walking distance to Forest View Elementary, in sight of Mission Trail Middle School, and located close to the new Olathe West High School – slated to open in the fall of 2017 – Arbor Woods is a community that grows with a family.
The community pool and cabana are scheduled to open this year and are sure to be a draw for kids both young and old alike. Highly respected builders Gabriel Homes and Prieb Homes are working with homebuyers on custom builds, while Chris George Homes and Darol Rodrock Homes have committed to some spectacular specs. Homebuyers may also opt to bring in their own builder, pending approval. A wide selection of lot styles is available, including walkout, daylight, and cul-de-sac home sites that can accommodate three-car garages. Lot prices range from the upper $60s to lower $80s, with homes ranging from the mid $300s to $400,000 range.
“We currently have three homes under construction and will be starting five more shortly,” says Mike Slaven, a Rodrock Development marketing agent. “There’s excellent interest in the community! In fact, three home sites are currently under reservation by prospective homeowners, and the community only recently opened.”
Never miss a local story.
Among Arbor Woods’ strongest selling points are its thoughtfully planned layout, ideal location, and the outstanding Olathe School District. And a variety of builders and floor plans are available to fit any family’s distinctive needs. Chris George Homes has two fantastic floor plans in the works, including the Yorkshire IV and the Laurel II.
The Yorkshire IV is an improvement on the already-popular two-story plan, with four bedrooms, 3.5 baths and a three-car garage. This updated model now includes a main level office/flex room, however, which homebuyers have voiced great interest in.
“Meanwhile,” Mike continues, “the Laurel II is a 2,605-square-foot reverse 1.5 story with four bedrooms, three baths, and a three-car garage. What sets this home apart is the truly impressive living space. The family room measures 20 feet by 18 feet. The master suite includes a walk-in shower, jetted tub and walk-in closet.”
Two exciting new plans will be under construction shortly by Darol Rodrock Homes. The Marco IV is an open concept reverse 1.5-story plan with a three-car garage, while the Bower is a two-story, four-bedroom, 3.5-bath home, also with a three-car garage, and an office/flex room.
Down the street in Persimmon Hill, at Santa Fe Street and Persimmon Drive, enthusiasm is mounting at the announcement that Prieb Homes will be the exclusive builder on the final phase of 33 lots in this beautiful community. Prieb Homes has a relationship with Rodrock Development that spreads over several decades and multiple generations, dating back to the early 1980’s.
“We’re really excited and truly honored to be the sole builder to complete this community,” says Greg Prieb, president of Prieb Homes. “The first six homes are expected to be under roof shortly, one of which will be a furnished model. We’re building three-car garage versions of some of our most popular 2,200-2,500 square foot two-story plans.”
All the plans call for four spacious bedrooms, 2.5 to 3.5 baths, and three-car garages, with prices starting in the low $300s.
“Today’s most sought-after features buyers demand are what the new homes in Persimmon Hill are based upon,” Greg continues. “Mudrooms with boot benches, granite countertops, kitchen islands, and walk-in pantries, front porches, oversized master showers and closets … all are characteristics prospective buyers can expect to find in Persimmon Hill.”
The community is full of child-friendly cul-de-sacs and walkout lots, as well as other family-favorites, including two pools, a park, and a beautiful lake. Prairie Center Elementary school sits within the neighborhood – for easy walking to and from school – while Mission Trail Middle School sits just across the street. The new Olathe West High School is located just blocks away.
And because this community is minutes from K-7 and Santa Fe and a wide variety of shopping, it makes commutes effortless. Finally, since Persimmon Hill is surrounded by other Rodrock Communities, including Forest View and Arbor Woods, homebuyers are assured the surrounding neighborhoods will retain their value and age gracefully.
Arbor Woods and the remaining home sites in popular Persimmon Hill have so much to offer prospective homebuyers. Stop by and see what more than 30,000 Rodrock Development homeowners already know!
