For Masha and Luke Stockdale, finding a site to build their next home in the community of Colton was a dream come true. The couple had been searching for the perfect location for a year when they decided on Rodrock Homes’ Colton, a new-homes community with prime access to the Blue Valley School District and convenient to shopping, dining and entertainment. “We moved into our home in late July and it’s everything we wanted,” said Masha Stockdale. “The spacious, two-story floor plan backs up to beautiful green space and is near Luke’s office.” The couple, expecting their first child this fall, especially likes Colton’s proximity to Timber Creek Elementary, Aubry Bend Middle School and Blue Valley Southwest High School — the very reason many buyers wanting top-notch educations for their children choose the community. “We went with the Larsen EX, which offers plenty of space for us to entertain family and friends,” Stockdale said. “The overall experience working with Rodrock and our project manager Tim Suiter was a good one; he made everything seamless.” Indeed, Colton is the answer for discerning buyers searching for one of the few remaining new-homes communities in the Kansas City area’s most dynamic suburb. In nine months, 38 percent of the original home sites in Phase I, which is open to outside builders, have sold. Phase II, which is being built exclusively by Rodrock Homes, recently opened with an inventory of 21 home sites. ReeceNichols real estate agent and Colton community manager Kerwin Holloway said the Stockdales are similar to many buyers who desire a special place to raise their family. “From the minute you drive into Colton, past the impressive monument, you know this is a community where you can experience life and its countless moments,” Holloway said. “Buyers are attracted to so many things here, from the convenient location to 69 Highway to the park-like setting to the abundant stylish floor plans.”
Lifestyle-friendly floor plans
Colton features seven of Rodrock’s most sought-after designs geared to turnkey living with up-to-date features such as open, spacious floor plans, gourmet kitchens and spa-style master bathrooms. Floor plans include two reverse styles, the Monterey and Anthem Reverse, with secondary bedrooms on the lower level; three two-stories, the Chesapeake II, Hepton and Larsen EX; and two 11/2-stories, the Summerlin EX and Anthem. “We offer buyers a carefully curated collection of distinctive and trendsetting home designs, with an emphasis on innovation, value and top-of-the-line selections such as tile, granite and custom finishes,” Holloway said.
Scenic, spacious home sites
Like the Stockdales, if you have specific requirements for the home site of your dreams, chances are you can find it in Colton. “With striking walkout and daylight sites available, complemented by treed and water views, Colton offers a resort-like setting in the suburbs,” Holloway said. “There isn’t another new-home community with the features and benefits we have for demanding buyers.”
Rodrock Ready and more
Depending on the stage of finish, a Rodrock Ready home allows a buyer to personalize selections such as granite, tile, carpet, light fixtures, paint, and hardwood floor and cabinet finishes. The signature Rodrock Experience, which comes with every purchase, means buyers have access to the Rodrock Design Studio and a professional designer to help streamline choices to customize a home’s interior, a priceless one-stop shop.
For the past 30 years, the Rodrock name has been synonymous with a legacy of building innovative, rock-solid family homes in premier communities throughout the suburbs of Johnson County. Third-generation residential home builder Brian Rodrock grew up in that prolific family business, inspired by homes built with a craftsman’s attention to detail, along with communities defined by an enviable standard of living, an expectation of amenities and an extraordinary sense of place that has helped thousands pursue their goal of homeownership. Rodrock took a page from his patriarch’s successful playbook and, combining a passion for building affordable homes of integrity and developing communities for people to raise children and create lifetime memories, launched Rodrock Homes in 2002. Today, award-winning Rodrock Homes has sold and closed more than 1,000 homes in more than 45 communities throughout the Kansas City area.
