Like many families, the Swanson family visited numerous model homes in search of “the perfect one.” That search happily ended at Arbor Lake, located at Prairie Star Parkway and Clare Road.
“Knowing it was a Rodrock Community and seeing the plans for future expansion was what set it apart and solidified our decision,” says Travis Swanson. “Moving in hasn’t been just about buying a house, it’s meant truly integrating into a top-tier community. We’ve had the opportunity to meet many of our neighbors, and they’ve all been so warm and welcoming. The sense of respect for one’s neighbor and family values became immediately evident.”
Travis says community managers, Cyndi Clothier and Debi Donner, were genuine and easy to work with. “They truly went above and beyond,” he adds. “However, even they undersold what a truly great place Arbor Lake is to live.”
The community, one of Rodrock Development’s newest, is quickly gaining momentum among homebuyers who demand quality homes in a neighborhood that promises protected value.

“We just put three of our models on the market to help meet consumer interest,” says Debi. “Our Jameson model, by James Engle Custom Homes, sold immediately, proof that homes with upgraded features don’t last long. So buyers will need to move fast to get in on our remaining gorgeous offerings, including the Ridgeview, by Reilly Homes, and the Cassidy and Abbey II by Darol Rodrock Homes.”
The Ridgeview is an elegant 2 story with 4 bedrooms, 3 1/2 baths, and a soaring entryway that will take buyers’ breath away.
“The flow in this home is superb: A see-through fireplace connects the Great Room and the office/den, while the Great Room opens to the kitchen and breakfast room,” says Debi. “And the spacious dining room and chef’s kitchen invites effortless entertaining. Finally, the master suite is sublime, with a domed ceiling in the bath and a massive walk-in closet—all for just $464,900!”
Rounding out the impressive selection of models is the favorites Cassidy and Abbey II, by trusted builder Darol Rodrock Homes.
“The Cassidy is a truly exceptional 2-story plan with 5 bedrooms and 4 baths that was Pick of the Parade First Runner Up in the Fall Parade of Homes,” says Debi. “A wall of windows in the Great Room brings the outside in, while a simply stunning kitchen, with Butler’s Pantry (complete with prep sink and command center), stylishly serves as the heart of the house. This Cassidy is laden with upgrades and is an absolute steal for $479,690.”
“Meanwhile the Abbey II is a reverse plan featuring an extra large kitchen with tons of cooking space,” adds Cyndi. “With 4 bedrooms and 3 baths, this home is one level living at its finest. The lower level features a large family room and 2 large bedrooms. An optional lanai extends the living space for outside entertainment. Priced with upgrades, the Abbey II is priced to sell at $410,500.”
Still that’s just the beginning of the fantastic offerings in Rodrock Development’s newest community. There are two additional Cassidy plans; all packed with the finest of finishes, including coveted shiplap siding, and open, airy layouts. A family favorite Laurel, by James Engle Custom Homes, is only a month from completion, as well as the Ashford II by Reilly Homes, which is ready for some lucky buyer to make a number of design selections.
There are also a number of lots for those who have their hearts set on building. The community is open to outside builders, pending approval. A wide variety of lots—including daylight and walkouts—provide for a variety of unique floor plans and ensure the community is anything but commonplace. There are ample quiet, privacy-enhancing cul-de-sacs and a picturesque 3.8-acre lake with a paved trail for walking to be added soon.
And residents are thrilled about the family-friendly pool with mushroom-shaped fountain that cascades water and a cabana, under construction now. With close proximity to K-10, K-7 and 95th Street, Arbor Lake is within the Olathe School district and close to St. James Academy, so growing families are perfectly situated to grow and flourish.
“The difference between a Rodrock Community and others goes beyond the signage that welcomes you,” Travis adds. “Driving through Arbor Lake, you get a real sense of the pride people take in their homes. With perfectly manicured lawns and a friendly smile, you can see how purchasing a home in a Rodrock Community is a solid investment in your family’s future.”
