Although not all of Terrybrook Farms’ eight model homes will be complete until October, sales in the premier Julian-Rodrock Homes community are already brisk. Buyers, attracted to the area’s topography, privacy and contemporary amenities, are eager to choose an ideal home site in a community envisioned by Don Julian and Brian Rodrock – names synonymous with seeking out innovation, building signature family homes with integrity and delivering concierge customer service.
Situated at 171st and Switzer in the acclaimed Blue Valley School District, Terrybrook Farms is Johnson County’s first master plan community since 2008.
Three distinct neighborhoods. “I’ve been selling homes for 28 years,” said Brenda Haverty, Terrybrook Farms community manager and Weichert, Realtors Graham-Welch real estate agent, “and this is the most exciting residential project I’ve ever been involved with – three neighborhoods, five builders, exclusive estate lots, a five-star amenities package including a clubhouse, resort-style pool and basketball sport court, and an intra-community trail system that hooks up to the beautiful Indian Creek Hike and Bike Trail. Nothing has been overlooked at Terrybrook Farms.”
Comprising three neighborhoods – Maple Ridge, Stone Creek and The Enclave – Terrybrook Farms leverages the experience and financial strength of two of Kansas City’s top builders and developers. With prices ranging from the mid-$400,000s to more than $1 million, the much-anticipated Julian-Rodrock Homes community provides discerning buyers the chance to purchase or build homes of distinction.
Julian and Rodrock handpicked three Kansas City builders to join them at Terrybrook Farms: James Engle Custom Homes, Roeser Homes and New Mark Homes.
“There’s something for every buyer at Terrybrook Farms, from young couples without children to families and empty nesters,” said Haverty, who purchased in the community’s Stone Creek neighborhood. “My husband and I have grown children and thought the home we built and now live in was our forever home. But when I previewed plans for the Julian-Rodrock collaboration, we decided it was too good to pass up.”
Where families come home. Julian, founder and president of Don Julian Builders, and third-generation builder and developer Rodrock, founder and chief executive officer of Rodrock Homes, realized their combined passion for developing and building originated from the same playbook.
“Brian and I exchanged ideas about what a community could look like on Terrybrook’s prime swath of land,’” Julian said. “Although his family’s long history in Kansas City of providing quality homes in outstanding communities is different from mine, our business ethics, vision and principles align.”
According to Rodrock, it was a natural to join forces with Julian, whose company has been a household name in Kansas City for more than 40 years.
“I had been searching for an opportunity like Terrybrook Farms and to work with Don Julian is a dream come true,” Rodrock said. “This is a community where families will come home to make memories and enjoy an incomparable lifestyle.”
Maple Ridge of Terrybrook Farms. When Travis and Laura Copus were on their way to a baby shower earlier this year, they drove past Terrybrook Farms and were immediately interested in the community.
“We saw there was a neighborhood going in at 171st and Switzer and, although there wasn’t much to see, liked what we saw,” Travis Copus said. “We loved the location – although it feels secluded, it’s easy access to the highway and convenience to shopping and dining – and the proximity to elementary and middle schools and Blue Valley Southwest was key.”
The couple has two young sons age 4 and 2 and had discussed building a house if they didn’t find something on the market that fit their specific checklist. After exploring the possibilities at Terrybrook Farms the Copuses purchased a cul-de-sac homesite that backs up to a lush tree line.
“We’re thrilled to get in on the ground floor of this community,” Laura Copus said. “One thing Travis and I weren’t willing to compromise on was the homesite, and we found the perfect one.”
The Copuses chose a 1.5-story floor plan with New Mark Homes. The open design, which will accommodate the couple’s family and entertaining, walkout basement and main level master suite fit their criteria.
“We can’t wait to move in next spring,” Travis Copus said. “It’s definitely our dream community and dream home.”
