In addition to Blue Valley’s BluHawk, Colton, Summerwood, Terrybrook Farms, Wilshire by the Lake and Wyngate in Overland Park, Rodrock’s Parade exciting entries extend to the vibrant western suburbs, including Lenexa and Shawnee. Prices range from mid-$300s to more than $1 million, with something to accommodate every budget.

Lenexa: Bristol Ridge and Gleason Glen. For buyers desiring to purchase or build in the western Johnson County suburbs of Lenexa and Shawnee, the neighborhood of Bristol Ridge and Rodrock Homes’ Gleason Glen have distinctive homes and home sites. Students attend schools within the desirable De Soto School District.

Gleason Glen personifies Rodrock’s philosophy of putting people first and creating homes with lasting value. Community manager and ReeceNichols real estate agent Judy Zimmerman likes the familiar sense of community that appeals to a diverse group of homebuyers.

“Gleason Glen feels like something you grew up in,” she said. “Rodrock’s unwavering standards and affordable pricing and community assets like our park and proximity to excellent schools add up to a winning combination.”

During the Parade visit Gleason Glen’s Dillon plan, a four-bedroom reverse 1.5-story home with an attractive boxed-beam ceiling, kitchen and breakfast nook and a flex space on the main level ready to be utilized as a home office or additional bedroom. Home chefs will appreciate the Madison, which features an L-shaped kitchen with a large center island, plenty of perimeter countertop space, custom cabinets and a walk-in pantry.

Just west of I-435 and 87th Street is Bristol Ridge, an attractive community with distinguished homes, including Rodrock’s Anthem Reverse, a four-bedroom reverse-style home that seamlessly incorporates comfortable living and gracious entertaining.

Shawnee: Hills of Forest Creek, Ridgestone Meadows.

Located between Johnson Dr. and Shawnee Mission Parkway, just west of Woodland Drive, Hills of Forest Creek is centrally located to major highways. Demand is high for homes in the De Soto School District, especially those within the Mill Valley High School boundaries.

“This community has a unique outdoor attribute—intra-community access to Clear Creek Trail linking homeowners directly to one the city’s longest and most scenic trails, the 17-mile Mill Creek Streamway Trail,” said community manager and ReeceNichols agent Brian Andrew. “We’re also a short distance from Shawnee Mission Park.”

Visit the striking four-bedroom, two-story Irving II, which boasts a seamless floor plan and a bonus room on the main level suitable for an office or playroom, the floor plan’s upper level houses the relaxing master suite, laundry room, three more bedrooms and two baths.

Ridgestone Meadows is a serene, tree-studded neighborhood that yields a country ambience with the benefits of city amenities nearby. Rodrock’s Dillon plan is a reverse story-and-a-half with four spacious bedrooms and an abundance of space for family gatherings and entertaining.
