As in most metro area new home developments, the sales team at Oak Run — an inviting, tranquil community located in Southern Johnson County near 151st St. and Old 56 Highway — is excited about showcasing their community during this year’s Fall Parade of Homes.
Beginning September 23 and running through October 8, the annual Parade features over 300 homes on both sides of the Stateline built by some of the finest homebuilders throughout the Kansas City region.
The Oak Run entry is Tour #85, The Northbend, a stunning two-story, five-bedroom, 4½-bathroom home built by Johnnie Adams Homes. In it, prospective homebuyers will find an open floor plan with four bedrooms and 3-1/2 bathrooms upstairs, and an office/flex room on the main level. The finished basement has another bedroom and bathroom, plus a wet bar and recreation room.
The model is located within the community’s latest phase of 68 new, competitively priced, home sites situated on beautiful treed, walkout and cul-de-sac lots, some over ½-acre in size. It is also just one of the wide range of home design options here offered exclusively by Johnnie Adams Homes, widely-known for their affordability, innovative floor plans, and commitment to excellence.

Another home currently under construction is The Woodland II, a reverse 1-1/2-story, four-bedroom, three-bathroom, 2,600 square foot, three-car garage home set on a spacious daylight lot. Priced at $359,950, it will be ready in less than 90 days.
“This home offers main level living with two of the bedrooms and one bathroom on the lower level, where homeowners can also enjoy a spacious entertainment area including a wet bar,” said Theresa Moore, who markets the property with Rosie Dearmore, for ReeceNichols Real Estate. “The lower level also has three large storage areas, providing plenty of space to store everyday items, holiday decorations, or anything else they might not want to have to keep in their bedroom closets.”
Because the homes at Oak Run represent some of the most affordable in the Southern Johnson County area, sales have been at a brisk pace and lot reservations are being taken.
There are also only 13 spec homes left offered in six different floor plans remaining in the first phase of Oak Run. Prospective buyers here will also experience a great deal of “Wow” factor in each plan.
“These are among the last of the bank-owned lots our developer bought at a fabulous price a few years ago, so those who buy now will not only own a beautiful home at a great value, but also earn instant equity,” said Moore. “They range from $254,000 to $360,00 and just can’t be beat.”
Oak Run community amenities include a zero-depth entry pool and cabana, as well as numerous nearby options suitable for first-time, move-up, and empty-nest buyers.
It is also within close proximity to the city and many modern conveniences, including, for many of its residents, only a short commute to some of Johnson County’s largest employers.
One of the biggest draws for buyers with children is that Oak Run is situated within the award-winning Olathe School District. Just last month at the start of the 2017 school year the District opened the brand new, $82 million, state-of-the-art Olathe West High School.
Built in an innovative format designed to emulate the feel of a college campus or start-up workplace, the school encompasses four communities, one dedicated to each grade, where core classes take place. Features of the new school building include blended learning classrooms for collaboration, open learning boards and maker spaces and media support centers, among other state-of-the-art elements.
“A lot of people are moving to the area because they really want their kids to go there,” explained Dearmore. “And once they see how close it is to Oak Run and all that we have to offer as a community, living here is a natural choice.”
“We really encourage anyone looking for an affordable home in Southern Johnson County to come out during this year’s Fall Parade of Homes,” Moore said. “People are amazed at how much house and a beautiful environment they can afford here, and have decided to make Oak Run the place where they love to come home!”
