Discerning new homebuyers have embraced the serenity and creative design found in Summerwood, one of Rodrock Homes’ premier communities in Overland Park.
Located within the top-rated Blue Valley School District, the neighborhood features a private stocked fishing lake with fountain, kid-friendly sports court, more than two miles of nature trails, zero-depth entry lagoon-style pool with cabanas, scenic views and spacious home sites surrounded by more than 50 acres of natural green space.
“Summerwood opened nearly three years ago and has been extremely popular with buyers looking for a neighborhood ideally situated in the suburbs,” said Angela Fitzgerald, Summerwood community manager and a real estate agent with Weichert Realtors Graham-Welch LLC. “Young families especially like the open floor plans and proximity to the elementary, middle and high schools. Many purchase here so they can raise their children in the community.”
Conveniently located at 162nd Terrace and Quivira Road in Overland Park, Rodrock Homes’ Summerwood complements the busy lifestyles of modern families, offering easy access to Johnson County’s best dining, shopping and recreation.

“Summerwood is far enough away from the hectic hustle and bustle of the city to feel like a special escape, yet is only a short distance from everything you need,” Fitzgerald said. “It’s a rare chance to own a home in a truly unique neighborhood.”
Now Summerwood introduces its final phase during the 2015 Spring Parade of Homes — Summerwood Estates, with a variety of attractive walkout, daylight, level, treed/and or waterview home sites beginning at $91,500.
“We don’t just sell homes at Summerwood,” Fitzgerald said. “It’s a way of life in this community.”
Relax in estate retreat. Summerwood’s reputation as a striking community boasting a family-friendly, amenities-rich environment with abundant open spaces and close to desirable schools is well deserved.

“As one of the area’s most sought-after new home communities, Rodrock Homes’ Summerwood has it all, a lovely setting to enjoy spectacular sunsets, terrific amenities and a welcoming ambiance,” she said. “Homeowners love it here and now Summerwood Estates extends that opportunity.”
