But hurry—just like the fleeting months of summer, there are limited opportunities to buy a home in seven outstanding, amenities-rich Rodrock neighborhoods in the area’s top-rated school districts.
Immediate availability—ideal locations. Rodrock has move-in ready new homes nestled inside the Blue Valley School District, DeSoto Unified School District and Olathe School District.

Move in by fall. Imagine your family enjoying a beautiful new home, just in time for fall, in a top-notch community: Colton, Summerwood and Wyngate in Overland Park (Blue Valley School District); Hills of Forest Creek and Ridgestone Meadows in Shawnee (De Soto Unified School District); Cedar Creek-The Crossings at Southglen (Olathe School District); and Chapel Hill (Spring Hill School District). Floor plans include popular two-story, 1.5- story and reverse floor plans on daylight and walkout home sites. Each home has its own array of distinctive features and is built with Rodrock’s unmistakable standard of excellence.
And with prices ranging from $420,500 to $658,000, there’s something to accommodate every budget.
Overland Park—Blue Valley School District. Colton is the answer for buyers wanting an ideal home in one of the area’s few remaining new-homes communities.
“From the minute you drive into Colton, past the impressive monument, you know it’s a community built to experience life’s countless moments,” said Colton community manager and ReeceNichols real estate agent Kerwin Holloway. “Buyers are attracted to the convenient location to 69 Highway, park-like setting, abundant, stylish floor plans and proximity to Blue Valley schools.”
The four-bedroom Anthem Reverse, a former model situated on a walkout home site, is ready for immediate purchase ($653,000). Also a reverse 1.5-story, the Monterey is move-in ready ($665,000).
“Rodrock Homes is known for trendsetting home designs, with an emphasis on craftsmanship, innovation and value,” said Andrea Sullivan, ReeceNichols real estate agent and Wyngate community manager. “The two-story Larsen EX model home is an exceptional family residence, complete and ready for move-in.”
Priced to sell at $623,000, the home’s open and seamless floor plan and architectural details throughout will appeal to a discerning buyer.
Shawnee—De Soto School District. Hills of Forest Creek and Ridgestone Meadows are unique communities highlighted by rolling terrain.
Hills of Forest Creek beckons with an extraordinary amenity: In-community access to Clear Creek Trail, which links homeowners to one of the city’s longest and most scenic trails, the 17-mile Mill Creek Streamway Trail.
“Walkers, joggers, bikers, hikers and even equestrian lovers enjoy the great outdoors nearly year-round on this unusual expanse of nature in the city,” said Dorothy Mask, ReeceNichols real estate agent and Hills of Forest Creek community manager. “Additionally buyers are drawn here because of the off-the-beaten path location, schools and easy highway access.”
The two-story, four-bedroom Weston III, a former model home, is priced to sell at $424,500.
Ridgestone Meadows, a secluded community with access to major highways, is just minutes from The Legends, a shopping, dining and entertainment destination. The two-story, six-bedroom Lancaster III, is an impeccable former model with a finished lower level ($530,000).
Olathe—Olathe School District. The Crossings at Southglen, a lovely neighborhood in the sought-after Cedar Creek area, is located across the street from Cedar Creek Elementary School. The two-story, four-bedroom Wakefield—one of two available for immediate move-in— a former model, is priced at $426,500. An open main-level entertainment space and a second floor dedicated to privacy define the popular floor plan.
Overland Park—Spring Hill School District. Located in south Overland Park, Chapel Hill is known for its pastoral beauty and 70 acres of greenspace, including densely wooded areas, open spaces and streamway, and hike and bike trails linking to the Johnson County’s expansive 300-mile trail system. The community also features a lagoon-style pool and cabana and clubhouse.
“Homeowners buy here not just because of the school district, but also the adjacent 1,200-acre Heritage Park complex that has a wide array of sports, an off-leash dog park and miles of walking trails,” said Bill Gerue, a real estate agent with Weichert Realtors Graham-Welch, LLC and Chapel Hill community manager.
The stunning reverse 1.5-story, four-bedroom Augusta on a walkout home site is move-in ready ($480,500).
