For a beautiful, affordable home set in a tranquil suburban setting close to the city, look no further than Oak Run.
Highlighted by awe-inspiring open green space meandering through the western edge of Olathe, Oak Run has attracted a wide range of buyers where spending between $250,000 and $350,000 gets them a great deal of home for the money.
“People who come here are amazed that they can buy a beautiful brand new home with today’s modern trends, energy-efficient features and more starting in the $250,000s in Johnson County,” said Rosie Dearmore, who markets the property with Theresa Moore and Janelle Williams for ReeceNichols Real Estate. “Additionally, although most of our buyers are looking for something that is move-in ready, they have chosen to wait for a spec or custom built home because of the great value of the lot prices and floor plans.”
Sales have been brisk and fewer than 40 lots remain, so prospective buyers are encouraged to come out and take a look before they are all gone. “Demand is high,” Dearmore said. “Our spec homes are selling very quickly, the vast majority before completion.”
The community’s furnished model home, The Northbend, which is open daily from noon to 5 p.m. and by appointment, is an eye-catching two-story, five-bedroom, 4 ½-bathroom home featuring an open floor plan with four bedrooms, 3½-bathrooms and an office/flex room on the main level. The lower level has another bedroom and bathroom, plus a wet bar and recreation room.
In it, buyers can experience superior quality, craftsmanship and attention to detail. They also have the opportunity to see several other home options including 1½-story, two-story and reverse floor plans.
“Our reverse plans are some of the most affordable in the area,” says Williams. “Our buyers have told us they feel like they have walked into a very comfortable, boutique version of a more expensive home.”
Prospective buyers at Oak Run will find a wealth of options and amenities suitable for first-time, move-up, and empty-nest buyers. Community amenities include a pool and cabana. Oak Run’s location is also a highlight, as it is within a stone’s throw of the award-winning Prairie Highlands Golf Course, and just minutes away from many lifestyle amenities including major retailers, grocery stores, restaurants, entertain ment venues, and recreational areas.
The community also enjoys close and easy highway access, and is located within the award-winning Olathe school district. Starting in 2017, the high school students of Oak Run will attend the new, state-of-the-art Olathe West High School. The Olathe School District owns land in the Oak Run development slated for a future elementary school.
“The beautiful, affordable homes, coupled with the community’s tranquil living ambiance and close proximity to everything one would need makes Oak Run a highly desirable community,” Moore says. “We really encourage anyone interested in purchasing a home here, to come and reserve a lot before they are all sold out.”
To that Dearmore added, “Come visit Oak Run where you’ll love coming home!”
