Information provided Rodrock Development

Rodrock Development offers two options for homebuyers interested in maintenance-provided communities, including the Villas at Grayson Place. Constructed by Gabriel Homes, the villas are unique because they are single-lot, stand-alone homes with their own yards that allow for fencing—ideal for pet lovers and those who want their own green space. Two floor plans are available, including the Richmond, a reverse 1.5-story plan with 4 bedrooms, 3 baths, and a 2-car garage.

Spring has finally arrived, and Kansas Citians are eager to enjoy the out-of-doors. But for some lucky homeowners, that time isn’t spent toiling in the yard or undoing winter’s damage to lawn and home alike. Rather, homeowners in two of Rodrock Development’s maintenance-provided communities are free to enjoy springtime without the unwanted aggravation of yard and exterior home upkeep. Be it a charming cottage or stylish villa, Rodrock Development offers a delightful array of options for those who want all the pride of ownership without the hassle.

Charm abounds at The Cottages at Woodridge, situated just north of the thriving 135th and Metcalf corner. These meticulously designed homes boast elegant arched entryways and windows, extra-wide doorways with French or pocket doors, solariums opening onto beautiful patios, and an abundance of pantry and storage space.

“With open floor plans and a location that couldn’t be better—close to all the shopping and restaurants on 135th Street—these homes sell themselves,” says Leslie Young, a longtime Rodrock Development marketing agent. “They really need to be seen to be believed.”

But the community has been so popular, it’s been a struggle to keep up with the demand. Currently two Westbrooke floor plans, attached at the garage wall, are under construction to be completed by mid-summer.

“Both homes are listed for $439,950,” says Leslie. “These ranch plans have 3 bedrooms, 3 baths, and a small basement under the garage, which is ideal both for storage and as a storm shelter. There will be beautiful hardwood floors in the Great Room, kitchen, and den, and plenty of natural light thanks to lovely, large arched windows and vaulted ceilings.”

As a maintenance-provided community, Cottages homeowners enjoy a truly carefree way of life. For just $319 a month, all exterior maintenance, roof repair (or replacement), lawn care, sprinkler system and landscaping upkeep, snow removal (starting at 3 inches) are taken care of—and the fee covers the insurance on the exterior and interior of home, as well.

“These homes are full of light and beautiful detail so homeowners can proudly entertain,” Leslie adds. “Nothing about these homes feels like downsizing. Rather, it’s all about right sizing with an eye to long-term, effortless living. There are no stairs to worry over, maintenance headaches, or dangers. This allows our residents to truly enjoy this vibrant community.”

Another option for the savvy homebuyer is the Villas at Grayson Place, ideally located at 119th and Lone Elm Road. Constructed by Gabriel Homes, Inc., these home are unique because they are single-lot, stand-alone villas with their own yards that allow for fencing—ideal for pet lovers and those who want their own green space.

“There’s nothing like it on the market,” says Anita Hadel, a Rodrock Development marketing agent. “And the maintenance—including lawn care and snow removal—and two swimming pools, walking trails, and clubhouse with party room and fitness area, are taken care of for a low monthly fee. So while you’re NOT mowing the lawn, you can be enjoying the pool, entertaining guests, or getting a good workout in.”

Both Gabriel Homes’ Richmond and the Fallon are reverse 1.5-story plans with 4 bedrooms, 3 baths, and 2-car garages. Each is loaded with finished basements, custom cabinets, beautiful hardwood floors and tile, walk-in showers, and the latest in energy-efficient amenities. So it’s surprising for homebuyers to discover that despite all these impressive upgrades, the homes are priced in the $350,000’s and up. Three Richmond and one Fallon (with an attractive brick front and stucco side design) are at the selection stage, so homebuyers can get the finishes they love.

“And we still have four walkout lots and another four classic lots that will accommodate a home with a third-car garage,” adds Anita. “All are priced very competitively! So many people are looking for a more simplified lifestyle, and there’s a shortage of wonderful, yet affordable, maintenance-provided living in Johnson County. With our single-family maintenance-provided homes, you’re not sacrificing anything! There are gorgeous appointments throughout: tall ceilings, beautiful crown moldings, a kitchen that’s to-die-for with a large granite island and walk-in pantry, and the most romantic master suite with huge walk-in closet.”

The styles of homes and communities may vary, but the benefit of living a maintenance-free lifestyle in a top-notch Rodrock Development remains the same. These homes feature all the high-end, distinctive building options for which Rodrock Development is renowned—but without the time-consuming, exhausting work associated with home upkeep.
