Location, location, location — real estate’s most-coveted phrase — defines why award-winning Wyngate, one of Rodrock Homes’ premier communities, is overwhelmingly popular with buyers seeking to live in Johnson County. Nestled in the heart of the top-rated Blue Valley School District, Wyngate is adjacent to three schools, which means kids can attend K-12 growing up in one house.
The myriad benefits of location are exactly what drew Anthony and Jessica Sherman to Wyngate. The couple and their 1-year-old son moved into a custom El Dorado floor plan on July 20, just in time for Anthony, a fullback, to start Chiefs training camp.
“Friends of ours live in Wyngate and we simply fell in love with the beautiful neighborhood,” Jessica Sherman said. “This is the perfect place to raise a family — green space, lots of young families and children, close to schools. It has everything we wanted, and more.”
Plus, the Shermans like Wyngate’s convenient highway access for Anthony’s commute to Arrowhead for practice and game day.
“This neighborhood feels secluded, but everything we need is nearby — shopping, dining, entertainment and an easy drive to the stadium,” Jessica Sherman said.
The Shermans settled on a walkout home site and chose the El Dorado, one of Rodrock’s in-demand, stylish floor plans featuring a convenient main-floor master bedroom, a popular trend with discerning homebuyers. Jessica Sherman notes the lack of a formal dining room, another preference popular with many buyers, was a major selling point, too.
“We’ve lived in homes with formal dining rooms and didn’t use them,” she said. “The El Dorado offers everything we need for our lifestyle, including plenty of space to entertain friends and our East Coast family that visits us frequently.”
Homebuyers prefer Wyngate. But Anthony and Jessica Sherman aren’t the only ones deciding that Wyngate is the ideal place to purchase a new home. Recent statistics from the Heartland MLS reveal 1,300 new homes were sold from Jan. 1, 2012 to Jan. 1, 2015 in Johnson County, with 677 (52 percent) of those sales occurring in the Blue Valley School District.
“Twenty percent of the homes sold in Blue Valley during that three-year period — a total of 128 — were in Wyngate,” said Kerwin Holloway, Wyngate community manager and ReeceNichols real estate agent. “Buyers like the Shermans are scrambling to take advantage of the community’s unique location attribute.”
Not only does the Rodrock Homes neighborhood have an enviable location in the award-winning Blue Valley School District, it features top-notch amenities, extraordinary, innovative floor plans and paved nature trails. It’s distinctive family-friendly living, close to Blue Valley schools, in a convenient setting at the crossroads of Kansas City’s exciting dining, shopping and entertaining.
“For about 90 percent of our homeowners, Wyngate’s location, which offers rare, walk-up access via the community’s nature trails to Cedar Hill Elementary and Pleasant Ridge Middle School, is key,” Holloway said. “There’s not another premier community with unprecedented proximity to the schools and everything else offered here.”
Quiet, intra-community roads also connect high school students to Blue Valley West High School.
“Although it will be awhile before we need it, it was attractive to Anthony and me that we had this incredible link to the high school,” Jessica Sherman said.
Availability going fast. According to Wyngate community manager Andrea Sullivan, a ReeceNichols agent, only 45 prime home sites — including cul-de-sac, daylight and walkout locations — remain, with 16 homes currently under construction.
“We’re nearing the end of selling Wyngate,” Sullivan said. “While there’s still time for buyers to choose their desired home site, I anticipate that with the Fall Parade of Homes just around the corner, they will sell quickly. Buyers are serious and motivated.”
Seven homes ready within 45 days. Wyngate also has seven in-demand floor plans available for occupancy within 45 days. Among the open, spacious Rodrock Ready designs are the two-story Hepton, which backs up to the community’s private park, and the two-story Lancaster 4.5 with a well-appointed gourmet-inspired kitchen. The Roanoke, with a dramatic two-story great room, also backs up to the lush park, affording a scenic view.
In addition to these two-story plans, Wyngate also has a 11/2-story and a reverse 11/2-story available for 45-day move-in.
Tour Wyngate today. Holloway and Sullivan predict Wyngate’s remaining home sites won’t be around for long, due to buyer demand.
“Again, the statistics prove that buyers are attracted to Wyngate’s entire package: Blue Valley schools, convenience to the metro’s best amenities and the friendly ambiance found in our communities,” Sullivan said. “These homes will disappear quickly.”
And the open design, stylish interiors and quality extras throughout highlight Wyngate’s carefully curated collection of floor plans, signatures that have earned buyer’s affection.
