Even though the Fall Parade of Homes ended Oct. 18, it isn’t too late to see all the new and exciting things at Brookwood Farms. A new swimming pool and cabana opened this year, a new builder has joined the team and a new phase allows buyers to select the perfect site for their dream home.

The Parade entries, two-story designs built by Dusselier & Marks Homes Inc., are still available to tour. The home at 19407 W. 200th St., offers four bedrooms and 3 1/2 bathrooms and is priced at $324,4000. The other home at 19402 W 200th St., boasts four bedrooms and 2 1/2 bathrooms with a price of $284,705. Both offer open first-floor designs, perfect for family living and entertaining, as well as the master suite and three additional bedrooms on the upper level.

Brookwood Farms features homes with three-car garages, the new swimming pool, the recently opened second phase, low interest rates and help for buyers who need to sell an existing home.

“This is an exciting time to visit Brookwood Farms,” said Susan Heenan, who markets Brookwood Farms for ReeceNichols. “The new neighborhood pool has opened, phase two lots are available and going fast, and we are thrilled to welcome Gianni Homes to our Brookwood Farms team of builders. Joe Gianni is an experienced and quality home builder, who has been constructing fine homes in Johnson County since 1995.”

In addition to the homes featured on the Fall Parade, seven speculative homes are in various stages of construction. Buyers can choose from reverse 1 1/2-story, ranch and two-story plans. These homes are priced from the high $280,000s to the mid $330,000s.

Brookwood Farms continues to have great success with its award-winning, energy-efficient homes. Residents in Brookwood Farms enjoy the benefits of lower utility costs in their newly built homes.

“The use of new techniques and materials result in more energy-efficient homes,” said Leonard Marks of Dusselier and Marks Homes. “The use of whole-house wrap, a foam and caulk package, as well as low-E double-pane windows can be used to help create a draft-free home with lower utility costs.”

Spacious home sites, excellent value for the price, the southern Johnson County location and a highly rated school district continue to bring numerous potential buyers to Brookwood Farms in Spring Hill, just a short drive south of Olathe.

The experienced agents at Brookwood Farms have programs to help buyers sell their existing homes and also will consider contingencies, giving buyers peace of mind when making the decision to purchase a new home.

In addition to quality homes that fit a variety of lifestyles, Brookwood Farms offers ample space between homes so residents have a sense of privacy. Standard features of all homes include stainless steel appliances, fully sodded yards, knock-down ceilings and custom cabinets with hidden hinges and 42-inch uppers.

Brookwood Farms’ many family-friendly features have been a huge draw for growing families. Those include large closets, walk-in pantries, boot benches and affordable packages to finish the lower level.

Dusselier and Marks Homes and Gianni Homes have many floor plans which can be customized to suit the needs of the homeowners. Buyers can also bring their own floor plans or builder. Large daylight, walkout and flat home sites are available and all fit a three-car garage.

This summer families enjoyed the new pool and cabana that quickly became a place to relax and meet with neighbors. The Neighbor to Neighbor program in Brookwood Farms is in full swing with many social activities planned for the community.

“Families of all ages enjoy the fun — children, families, empty-nesters and singles,” Heenan said.
