Here’s a preview of five Rodrock communities not to be missed during the Spring Parade of Homes.
Colton: Perfect 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 one of Colton’s top draws for buyers.
“From the minute you drive into Colton you can sense it’s a community where lifetime memories are made,” Holloway said. “Buyers are attracted to many things here, from 69 Highway’s accessibility to the park-like setting to our diverse collection of floor plans.”
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 nestled in the award-winning De Soto Unified School District.
“The western suburbs are hot,” said Judy Zimmerman, ReeceNichols real estate agent and Gleason Glen community manager. “Beyond the homes that focus on impeccable décor and craftsmanship, buyers like what makes Gleason Glen a special place to live—there’s a welcoming atmosphere.”
Whether it’s a reverse 1.5-story like the Dillon and Aspen, each with centralized living space, main level master and second bedroom/study, or a two-story like the Irving with a first-floor office, there’s something to complement every lifestyle at Gleason Glen.
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 situated close to I-435, K-7, and K-10 highways, with a short commute to the airport and most city attractions,” said ReeceNichols agent and community manager Dorothy Mask. “We have a community pool that opened last season and a striking selection of homes available for a quick close.”
Hills of Forest Creek unveils the Irving II during the spring parade—an updated version of the popular Irving floor plan, with a seamless flow for family activities and entertaining.
Summerwood/Summerwood Estates: Ambience, Amenities
Homebuyers embrace the serenity and creative design found in Summerwood. Located within the Blue Valley School District, the neighborhood has a private stocked fishing lake with fountain, kid-friendly sports court, more than two miles of 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 introduces two new professionally decorated models—the Anthem and the Hailey.
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 a home, but also a spectacular setting to enjoy sunsets, terrific amenities and a friendly ambience,” said Angela Fitzgerald, real estate agent with Weichert, Realtors Graham-Welch and community manager. “This community offers one-stop shopping for serious buyers searching for the perfect home for immediate move-in or the most functional floor plan to build.”
Wyngate: Final Phase, Close to Schools
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, along with access on quiet, intra-community roads. Trails connect high school students to Blue Valley West High School.
“The majority of our homeowners buy in Wyngate because it’s adjacent to the Blue Valley school campus,” said Andrea Sullivan, Wyngate community manager and ReeceNichols agent. “There’s not another community with such ideal proximity to Blue Valley schools.”
Three designer-inspired models are open to tour during the parade: the Larsen EX, Lancaster 4.5 and Roanoke.
