If finding your dream home is at the top of your summer wish list, now’s the time to consider the stately homes and lush surroundings of southern Overland Park community Polo Fields.
Polo Fields at 164th Street and Quivira Road is an exceptional community on some of the most beautiful land in Johnson County. The 155-acre, luxury new-home community is situated atop what were once actual polo fields, giving Polo Fields a dual sense of beauty and history.
Drive through the stately entrance and it’s immediately apparent why prospective buyers are continually drawn to this picturesque community. An idyllic location that’s steeped in history, a selection of prime home sites and quality-built homes from some of Kansas City’s best builders are just a few of the reasons why Polo Fields has become a coveted choice in the Kansas City metro area.
The community is comprised of two neighborhoods — The Estates and The Reserve — each of which feature a variety of architectural styles and price points. Larger home sites can be found in The Reserve, allowing for side-entry garages, a higher landscape allowance and slightly larger square footage requirements.

No matter which neighborhood Polo Fields homeowners choose, they’re ensured not only a beautiful, quality-built home, but also a prime, picturesque location and lifestyle-oriented amenities; in other words, the total package.
In response to continual demand, a coveted selection of 13 new oversized lots in The Reserve neighborhood of Polo Fields is now available, giving prospective homeowners a limited opportunity to purchase a premium location, with many of the home sites backing to protected green space and trees. Prices range from the $160,000s to $275,000 for these new premium lots.
A varied inventory that includes speculative homes and custom build-jobs priced from the upper $400,000s to more than $800,000 has proven to be equally enticing to prospective Polo Fields homeowners.
“We have a phenomenal selection,” according to the Polo Fields marketing team. “With quality built homes by more than 10 different builders, buyers really appreciate the wide diversity of plans and styles that no longer seem to be offered in most area communities.”
Polo Fields’ speculative homes are in varying stages of completion and can accommodate a variety of move-in timelines, including immediate occupancy. Now that the community’s final phase is underway, opportunities to purchase in Polo Fields are dwindling, making this the ideal time to explore the community.
A handful of home sites remain in The Estates neighborhood with lot prices ranging from $104,950 to $179,950, an ideal option for those interested in a custom-built home. Outside builders are welcome with developer approval.
Homes at Polo Fields are part of an energy-efficient, AT&T fiber optic neighborhood and feature all-stucco exteriors and acute attention to detail that incorporates cutting-edge architectural details. Additionally, the spacious home sites give homeowners the freedom and flexibility to pursue design features such as side-entry garages, courtyard garages and ranch-style layouts, all without compromising the lot size.
Prospective homeowners are encouraged to visit the community’s three model homes, which offer a chance to tour premier examples of the residential construction that’s available in the community.
James Engle Custom Homes’ Laurel II Expanded, which serves as the Polo Fields sales office, features an airy, open 11/2-story floor plan that’s enhanced by an abundance of natural light. Soaring vaulted ceilings and an upstairs loft add to the interior’s spacious feel, while features such as a walk-in pantry with workstation, a wine bar and butler’s pantry and ample storage add the functionality that homeowners covet. The expanded version of Engle’s Laurel floor plan also boasts an inviting master suite that includes a jetted tub, walk-in shower, separate vanities and a walk-in master closet that’s adjacent to the laundry room.
The four-bedroom, two-story Chloe II is an expanded version of Roeser Homes LLC’s Chloe plan. It isn’t just big on space, it also makes a dramatic first impression thanks to a transitional color palette that combines gray, taupe and silver accents in a luxurious aesthetic.
The dining room comes complete with two-story vaulted ceilings, an ideal space in which to entertain. The home also features an office/flex room space on the main floor, a covered deck, 9-foot ceilings on the main floor and distinctive finishing touches like a dark wood tongue-in-groove ceiling. After touring this stylishly modern and functional home, it’s no surprise that Roeser Homes took home a Grand Award in this year’s Spring Parade of Homes American Dream Awards.
Thoughtful finishing touches are generously placed throughout Bickimer Construction Inc.’s Augusta model home. The 1/12-story, four-bedroom home includes an eye-catching great room complete with two-story ceilings and an open layout. A sizable kitchen seamlessly flows into a dining area that can easily accommodate a harvest table.
A fireplace with floor-to-ceiling surround adds just enough drama to create a truly memorable space. Escape to the grotto-like feel of the main floor’s half-bathroom, which comes complete with stone tile and dual sconces. A finished lower level is great for entertaining or spending time with family and includes a full-size kitchen with granite counter tops, built-in entertainment center and ample windows.
The beautifully built homes are undoubtedly one of the key appeals of Polo Fields, yet the community also boasts several amenities and an enviable location in the Blue Valley School District. Polo Fields homeowners have access to a large swimming pool and cabana, not to mention more than 70 acres of open space. Plus, residents are minutes away from shopping, dining, entertainment and several recreational opportunities, including the Heritage Park soccer and golf complex and Heritage Lake.
