The two-story, five-bedroom Lancaster III has a covered patio and backyard that backs up to greenspace ($498,000),

Overland Park. Summerwood and Wyngate are in the heart of the award-winning Blue Valley School District.
Summerwood. This community’s available-now inventory includes the five-bedroom Anthem, a 1.5-story show-stopping model with stunning finishes and main-level living ($680,000). This must-see home features an elegant great room highlighted by a floor-to-ceiling stone fireplace; a kitchen outfitted with quartz counters, upgraded appliances and a beverage center; a serene, luxurious master suite; and a screened-in porch and outdoor firepit.
Also available for immediate move-in is a two-story, four-bedroom Roanoke ($580,000) with a dramatic two-story great room that opens onto a gourmet-inspired kitchen and breakfast nook, a main-level study and mudroom off the garage. Three homes — the two-story, five-bedroom Hailey ($696,00), two-story, five-bedroom Lancaster EX ($575,00) and a two-story, four-bedroom Larsen EX ($627,000) — are within 45 days of completion, allowing buyers to make final selections.
Peter Colpitts, a ReeceNichols real estate agent, recently helped a couple relocating from St. Louis find their ideal home in Summerwood. He cites the community’s attractive amenity package, including the clubhouse, resort-style pool and extensive trails throughout the neighborhood, as a primary reason he showed his clients Summerwood.
“Not knowing the area and without prior new construction experience, they relied on my expertise to show them great options,” Colpitts said. “My goal was to find a home, that fit their needs, by a top-rated builder in a wonderful neighborhood. The first name that came to mind was Rodrock Homes — their team and processes provide a smooth transaction.
Wyngate. This popular Rodrock community, adjacent to Blue Valley West, Pleasant Ridge Middle and Cedar Hills Elementary, has three remaining new homes scheduled for completion within 45 days, enabling buyers to consult with Rodrock interior designers for final selections.
The 1.5-story New Haven, located on a cul-de-sac ($615,500), is a five-bedroom beauty with a cathedral ceiling in the great room, two bedrooms situated on the main level and a spacious, eat-in kitchen. A two-story, five-bedroom Hepton, also on a quiet cul-de-sac ($639,000), has a second kitchen/pantry and true fifth bedroom on the main level with a private bath. The two-story, four-bedroom Larsen EX has a side-entry garage and a floor plain suited for family living and entertaining.
“It’s exciting to see this community wind down,” said Angela Fitzgerald, community manager and a real estate agent with Rodrock and Associates, Realtors. “With three final opportunities to buy new, timing has never been more important to secure a home in Wyngate.”
