Colton: Superb Location, Dynamic Living. Colton satisfies discerning buyers searching for one of Overland Park’s few remaining new homes communities. ReeceNichols real estate agent and Colton community manager Kerwin Holloway notes Colton buyers typically desire a special place to raise their family.
“From the minute you drive into Colton you know it’s a community to experience life and its countless moments,” Holloway said. “Buyers are attracted to many things here, from 69 Highway’s accessibility to the park-like setting to the abundant stylish floor plans.”
Colton introduces two completed reverse 1.5-story homes during the parade—the Monterey and Anthem Reverse.
Gleason Glen: Quality, Style, Value. Happily off the beaten path, Gleason Glen is just west of K-7 Highway in Lenexa in a secluded area with easy access to popular dining, shopping, and entertainment and located in the award-winning De Soto Unified School District.
“We’re excited to welcome parade visitors,” said Judy Zimmerman, ReeceNichols real estate agent and Gleason Glen community manager. “We have the Dillon Reverse 1.5-story, the Aspen Reverse 1.5-story, the Irving two-story with a first-floor office and the Destin 3.5 two-story. All homes focus on impeccable décor, craftsmanship and value.”
Hills of Forest Creek: Convenience, Personality. Beyond well-built homes, the primary reasons people choose this Shawnee community are for its location, top-rated school district and in-community access to Clear Creek Trail. The unique amenity links homeowners directly to one of the city’s longest and most scenic trails, the 17-mile Mill Creek Streamway Trail. Walkers, joggers, bikers, hikers, and even equestrian lovers enjoy the great outdoors nearly year-round on this unusual expanse of nature in the city.
“We’re close to I-435, K-7, and K-10 highways, and a short commute to the airport and most city attractions,” said ReeceNichols agent and community manager Rob Lacio. “And our new community pool opens in May.”
The new phase has a variety of walkout and daylight home sites, with some backing to green space. Lacio assured there is an attractive selection of homes available for quick close.
Summerwood/Summerwood Estates: Ambience, Amenities. Homebuyers have embraced the serenity and creative design found in Summerwood. Located within the Blue Valley School District, the neighborhood features 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 Estates, an enclave within Summerwood that boasts estate-size sites and the ability to bring in an outside builder, has everything for the custom homebuyer.
“As one of the area’s most sought-after new home communities, Summerwood Estates is a place to not only build your dream home, but also a stunning setting in which to enjoy sunsets, terrific amenities and a welcoming ambience,” said Angela Fitzgerald, real estate agent with Weichert, Realtors Graham-Welch and community manager. “Because we feature both Summerwood and Summerwood Estates modern, unique and professionally decorated model homes, we see a variety of buyers for all price ranges. We offer one-stop shopping for serious buyers searching for the perfect home for immediate move-in or the most functional floor plan to build.”
Wyngate: New Models, Limited Promotion. In addition to extraordinary designs, homeowners choose Wyngate because of rare, walk-up access to Blue Valley schools. Paved nature trails link kids door-to-door with both Cedar Hill Elementary and Pleasant Ridge Middle School and quiet, intra-community roads also connect high school students to Blue Valley West High School.
“For about 90 percent of our homeowners, Wyngate’s location adjacent to the Blue Valley school campus is key,” said Andrea Sullivan, Wyngate community manager and ReeceNichols agent. “There’s not another community with such ideal access to Blue Valley schools.”
Now in its final phase, Wyngate features three brand-new models: the Larsen EX, Lancaster 4.5 and Roanoke.
“Great décor ideas and floor plans—quality homes in a quality neighborhood,” Sullivan said. “Plus we have a special promotion for our three remaining former model homes, now for sale—buyers receive $20,000 off to spend, whether it’s for upgrades, landscaping or lower level finishing.”
