Joe and Bernadette Cothern had always admired Rodrock Development’s gorgeous Greens of Chapel Creek, nestled off of 68th Street in Shawnee.
“We have watched the community grow for 10 or 12 years,” says Bernadette. “We’ve loved it since its beginning! We always marveled at the care people took of their homes in the Greens. It’s a really beautiful community.”
The couple looked at multiple homes within the neighborhood over the years, but for various reasons never made the move—until a few months ago. While the Cotherns have only called the Greens of Chapel Creek home for a few months, it’s been the fulfillment of a long-held desire. And they couldn’t be happier!
“The builders take true pride in their work in the Greens with beautiful craftsmanship, and the homes are unique, and very, very nice,” Joe says. “Everybody is proud of their homes, and rightly so.”

“The people are wonderful,” adds Bernadette. “The neighbors show the utmost care for the children, their property, and each other—it’s just the friendliest community …it sets the neighborhood apart.”
Rodrock Development’s one-of-a-kind golf-course community truly is set apart, both in design and in the rare camaraderie that flourishes within. The neighborhood offers stunning golf course views and feels tucked away from the bustle of city living, yet is just minutes from major metropolitan destinations. And with a variety of 2-story, 1 1/2-story, and reverse-1 1/2-story plans, buyers have a fantastic array of choices.
The community is bursting into the summer months with some truly impressive inventory, says community manager Bob Sloan. “We have nine homes available in 90 days or less, including three homes that are move-in ready.”
Hilmann Home Building has its Chesapeake II Expanded Up, the Chesapeake 2 1/2 and two Middleton IV floor plans ready to capture homebuyers’ hearts. The Middleton IV, with 5 bedrooms and 4 baths, is a stately 2-story. Both of these homes are in a great cul-de-sac, one backing to the fairway and the other to the golf course lake for breathtaking views.
Also immediately available is the Chesapeake II Expanded Up, with 5 bedrooms (or 4 and an office), 4 bathrooms, 2 laundry areas, a huge loft area, separate playroom, a walkout, walk-up basement, and covered porch with stone fireplace.
Rounding out Hilmann Home Building’s offerings is the Chesapeake 2 1/2, a beautiful 4-bedroom, 3-bath, reverse 1 1/2 story perfectly situated on a deep lot, backing to the green.
Also move-in ready is Prieb Homes’ Ellsworth, an awesome 5-bedroom, 4-bath 2-story home with 10-foot ceilings that backs to the golf course fairway and lake. The backyard offers a park-like setting that can’t be missed!
“This home was specially designed for open flow and ease of living,” Bob says. “The nicely appointed kitchen and hearth open directly into a breakfast nook and Great Room. Both a front porch and covered patio bring the outside in, while an impressive foyer and dining room lend themselves to more formal affairs.”
But the homes are really only the beginning of what makes this community so beguiling. In addition to Erfurt Park, the Greens of Chapel Creek also boasts a zero-entry infinity pool with fountain, changing cabana, gas grill, and picnic area. As well, Rodrock Development’s Moms’ Council helps ensure a variety of community-building events, including July 4th bike parades, holiday hayrides, and more.
And since the community is located in the award-winning De Soto School District, the Greens of Chapel Creek is an ideal location for growing families. (In fact, De Soto High School ranked Number Four among the top-rated high schools in Kansas by U.S. News and World Reports.)
And it goes without saying that a huge selling point is the Shawnee Golf & Country Club, which offers not only one-of-a-kind views but also affordable club memberships for both families and individuals. The club boasts a 27-hole championship golf course—designed by Lyndy Lindsey—four sets of tee boxes, an aqua driving range, three swimming pools (swimming, sports, and a wading pool for small children), hard-surface tennis court, fitness center, and luxurious club house with women’s and men’s locker rooms and dining facilities.
With distinctive views, the serenity of nature, a true sense of community, unparalleled home quality, and the added bonus of affordable club memberships, the Greens of Chapel Creek is a living experience like no other.
