Discerning homebuyers have embraced the bucolic setting and creative design found in Summerwood and Summerwood Estates, one of Rodrock Homes’ premier communities in Overland Park. Located within the top-rated Blue Valley School District with easy access to U.S. 69 from the new 159th Street ramps, the exclusive neighborhood boasts 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 is far enough away from the city’s hectic hustle and bustle to feel like a special escape, yet is only a short distance from everything you need,” said Angela Fitzgerald, Summerwood community manager and a real estate agent with Weichert Realtors Graham-Welch LLC. “It’s a rare chance to own in a home in a truly exceptional neighborhood.”

Summerwood’s reputation as a striking community boasting a family-friendly environment with bountiful open spaces and proximity to desirable schools is well deserved.

“Every element of Summerwood is well conceived,” Fitzgerald said, adding, “It’s a picture-perfect location — much more than a home, it’s a way of living, and our generous amenities enhance that.”

Michelle Capek, a real estate agent with Weichert Realtors Graham-Welch LLC, and a community manager at Summerwood, notes the neighborhood’s unique aspects attract buyers eager for generous home sites and homes with quality craftsmanship.

“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.

The community is one of 10 Rodrock Homes’ communities on the Fall Parade of Homes tour, which ends today. Rodrock Homes has 22 homes entered in the Parade, representing a diverse collection of stylish, innovative floor plans.

Private retreat ambiance. Summerwood Estates, the final phase of this amenities-rich community characterized by abundant open spaces, was showcased during September’s Artisan Home Tour with a trio of exquisitely detailed custom-built homes. The Treviso by Covenant Homes focuses on family-style living; the reverse 1 1/2-story Quintessa by J.S. Robinson Fine Homes features transitional design with modern accents for gracious living and entertaining; and The Telluride by Rodrock Homes is a modern mountain-inspired residence that defines rustic elegance.

For the Fall Parade of Homes, the Home Builders Association has recognized The Telluride as Pick of the Parade Grand Award winner and awarded it with second place in a Distinctive Plan and Design. The Quintessa was also honored with a Distinctive Plan and Design First Place award and runner-up for Pick of the Parade.

“These unique homes were extremely popular with Parade-goers during the Artisan Home Tour and equally so during the Fall Parade,” said Brian Rodrock, president of Rodrock Homes and a third-generation home builder. “The heirloom estate homes exude the essence of artisan, and certainly resonated with people. We’re proud to have some of the area’s most well-regarded and high-profile home builders here.”

Punctuated by a private retreat ambiance, Summerwood Estates is a jewel in Rodrock’s thoughtfully curated collection of new homes communities throughout Johnson County.

Available inventory. Interest has been high in Summerwood and Summerwood Estates during the Fall Parade, especially in homes available for immediate move-in, including the two-story Hepton with a must-see lower level and the reverse-story Windsor II.

Four Summerwood Estates homes are available for immediate purchase, including the stunning Raphael, The Telluride, Quintessa and Treviso. In addition, seven impressive home sites are available for a custom build project ranging from walkout to cul-de-sac and daylight.

The Raphael was unveiled in Summerwood Estates during the 2015 Spring Parade of Homes. The extraordinary 1 1/2-story, five-bedroom, 5 1/2-bathroom residence designed by award-winning architect Scott Bickford, represents collaborative design inspiration from industry leaders Groover Interiors and Rodrock Homes.

“It’s unprecedented to have homes of this stature ready for purchase,” Rodrock said. “In both Summerwood and Summerwood Estates we truly have something for every buyer searching for a distinctive home. Just imagine being in your dream home to celebrate the holidays.”
