Quick access to shopping, dining and entertainment, close proximity to highways Kansas 7 and 10, Interstates 35 and 435, and a wide array of new, high quality single-family homes priced in the upper $200,000s and low 300,000s, are among the biggest draws to the community of Persimmon Pointe.
Located on an unspoiled corner of northwest Olathe at 127th and Hedge Lane, sales at Persimmon Pointe have been very brisk.
“We have had lots of buyers who would like to have a very nice home in Olathe, but they don’t want to pay upwards of $400,000 for new construction,” said community sales manager Cathy Drake, who markets the property with Teresa Acklin. “There are not that many places left in Johnson County, especially as Olathe continues to grow, where they can find such high quality homes for these more moderate prices.”
Another major draw is that some of the most well-known and respected homebuilders in the Kansas City area have chosen to offer a combination of beautiful two-story, reverse 1 1/2-story and ranch plans here. These include Summit Custom Homes, Sallee Homes, SAB Homes, Dusselier and Marks Homes, and Chris George Custom Homes.
Prieb Homes is also well represented here, offering seven outstanding spec homes with prices starting at $285,000. All can be ready in less than 45 days to immediate. Among them are the Harlow II plan in Craftsman, Country and Traditional elevation options, as well as the Addison plan.
The overall distinctive Persimmon Pointe styles, options and finishes available to personalize a home to suit one’s tastes and needs can be seen by touring the model row, featuring three furnished model homes.
Community amenities include a pool and a cabana. The pedestrian friendly area also fosters a sense of community with the neighbors who, due to the diverse floor plans offered here, are a nice mix of young families, move-up buyers, empty nesters and retirees.
Resident students are able to walk to new, highly-rated Olathe District schools. Located immediately south of the community is Prairie Center Elementary. Mission Trail Middle School is less than a mile west, and just one-mile south of Persimmon Pointe on Santa Fe and Hedge Lane, a new state-of-the-art Olathe high school campus is now under construction and scheduled to open for the 2017-18 school year.
“The impending opening of the new high school is really driving traffic to this part of Olathe,” said Drake. “We have people buying here from as far away as Basehor, Leavenworth, Gardener, and Leawood because in those places they are having a hard time finding something in this price point with such a high level of quality construction and upscale interior and exterior amenities.”
Moreover, the community affords families a variety of opportunities to enjoy some of the best public parks and recreational facilities in Johnson County. Hundreds of acres of parkland and conservation areas in the vicinity ensure that life at Persimmon Pointe will never be far from nature’s doorstep.
In addition to the Prieb Homes plans, six homes are ready for immediate occupancy and additional inventory will be ready within 45 to 120 days, depending on the plan. There are also seven lots left for custom build jobs.
As Johnson County has grown over the last few decades, prices of new homes in Olathe have risen steadily. According to Altos Research, in 2015, the average price of a new home in the city has climbed to almost $350,000.
“We are proud of what this community has to offer,” Acklin said. “Persimmon Pointe is one of the few places in Johnson County where buyers still can find new single-family homes priced in the upper $200,000s, and with land values and building costs on the rise, it could be one of the last. We invite everyone interested in purchasing a new home to act quickly on these incredible deals and to discover this hidden gem of Olathe.”
