This year’s Fall Parade of Homes is in full swing, and Rodrock Development and its realtors have ample offerings for those eyeing Olathe as a new place to call home. Through Oct. 9, Rodrock Development has 24 homes in Olathe open to the public for free tours from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. daily – including three gorgeous abodes in Arbor Woods, Grayson Place and Persimmon Hill.
“Rodrock & Associates, Realtors are enjoying tremendous success and satisfaction offering a variety of price points and housing options all within a few blocks of each other,” says longtime marketing agent Bruce Stout. “Persimmon Hill and Arbor Woods both answer the call for those looking for ‘walkable’ access to schools at new construction price points difficult to find in the Johnson County market.”
Located at Canyon Drive and 125th Terrace, Arbor Woods is within walking distance to Forest View Elementary, in sight of Mission Trail Middle School, and is close to Olathe West High School, which is scheduled to open in the fall of 2017.
“With prices beginning in the mid to upper $300s, both award-winning builders Chris George Homes and Darol Rodrock Homes have developed plans that incorporate homebuyers’ needs and wants – granite countertops, expansive owner suites, hardwood flooring, and more,” Bruce continues.
And Chris George Homes’ Yorkshire IV is the perfect chance for Parade-goers to see all these high-end extras.
“Featuring a massive island, the kitchen opens to the Great Room and formal dining room,” Bruce says. “The layout offers a centered rear stairwell adding to the open feel. A main-level office/craft room provides an excellent workspace out of the way. The upper level offers 3 secondary bedrooms and a stunning Owner’s Suite adorned with dual vanities, walk-in shower, and oversized walk-in closet with access to the laundry 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.
“Greg Prieb has been able to keep his plan design costs from the upper $200,000 to low $300,000,” Bruce says. “With 2-story plans starting at approximately 2,100 square feet and going up to 2,500 square feet, Prieb Homes continues to incorporate features that today’s homebuyers want.”
Among those homes is Prieb’s fantastic Sydney II, which is on Parade. The house boasts 4 bedrooms and 2.5 baths and an open-flow floor plan that combines the kitchen, breakfast area, and impressive Great Room.
Persimmon Hill 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, while Mission Trail Middle School is just across the street.
Completing these ogle-worthy Olathe offerings is Grayson Place, conveniently situated at 119th Street, just east of Kansas 7 on Valley Road. Its location is truly ideal, with I-435, K-7, and K-10 nearby and the 135th Street, 119th Street, and College Blvd corridors just minutes away. This is a most compelling community that offers something for everyone – at the perfect size and price.
“During this Fall’s Parade, we’re showcasing the Richmond, an incredibly popular plan by Gabriel Homes,” says Anita Hadel, a Rodrock Development marketing agent. “It’s a 4-bedroom, 3-bath, reverse 1.5 story, with the master suite and a second bedroom/study on the first floor. The kitchen is the true center to the house, with beautiful cabinetry and large walk-in pantry. And the finished lower-level family room is fully equipped with a bar, paneled ceiling, and stoned wall. This home sits within our maintenance-provided area of Grayson Place, offering lawn mowing, snow removal, and spring start-up and winterization of the sprinkler system for a low monthly fee.”
Still, varied home styles and maintenance packages are only the beginning: With a community park and pond, playground, two fantastic pools, paved trails, a richly appointed clubhouse, and Millbrooke Elementary School within walking distance, Grayson Place provides a suburban haven for families of every shape and size.
So if your sights are set on Olathe, there’s only one name you need to remember during this Fall’s Parade of Homes: Rodrock Development. Between Persimmon Hill, Grayson Place, Arbor Woods, Forest View, and Stonebridge, there’s 24 homes to choose from – making it your one-stop-shop to seeing the best in Olathe.
