Persimmon Pointe Sales Office

As Johnson County has grown over the past few decades, prices of new homes in Olathe have risen steadily. According to Altos Research, in 2015, the average price of a new home in the city has climbed to almost $350,000. Today, Persimmon Pointe
is one of the few places in Johnson County where buyers still can find new single-family homes priced in the upper $200,000s, and with land values and building costs on the rise, it could be one of the last.

According to the Persimmon Pointe community sales managers, Teresa Acklin and Cathy Drake, “sales have remained strong, even as the market has begun to slow down. With the construction of the new Olathe high school continuing to push forward, many families have been exploring the surrounding area, and end up falling in love with our community.”

New-home buyers are taking notice of this hidden gem, nestled in a quiet corner of northwest Olathe, and all it has to offer. Nearby parkland, great Olathe schools, and its proximity to major highway networks have inspired buyers to be quick to act on the incredible deals offered for new homes at Persimmon

Persimmon Pointe is located in an unspoiled corner of northwest Olathe at 127th and Hedge Lane, just one mile west of Kansas 7 Highway. Its proximity to highways Kansas 10, Interstate 35 and Interstate 435 provides quick access to shopping, dining, entertainment and job centers, but that’s not the only reason why buyers move there.

According to Acklin and Drake, Persimmon Pointe is attractive to buyers not only because of its easy access to highway networks, but also for its rural surroundings.

Living in Persimmon Pointe affords families a variety of opportunities to enjoy some of the best public parks and recreational facilities in Johnson County. Hundreds of acres of parkland and conservation areas in the vicinity ensure that life at Persimmon Pointe will never be far from nature’s doorstep.

Resident students are able to walk to new, highly-rated Olathe District schools. Located immediately south of the community is Prairie Center Elementary. Mission Trail Middle School, home of the Timberwolves, is less than a mile west, and just one mile south of Persimmon Pointe on Santa Fe and Hedge Lane, a new state-of-the-art Olathe high school campus is now under construction and scheduled to open for the 2017-2018 school year.

“As much as homebuyers weigh over their home’s potential location, they want to make sure they are teaming up with a strong developer, and knowledgeable builders.” Persimmon Pointe has paired up with some of the best-known new home builders in the Kansas City area.

Model home builders, Summit Custom Homes, Prieb Homes and Sallee Homes, offer buyers dozens of house plans to choose from, providing many different styles, options and finishes to personalize the home to suit their distinctive tastes and needs.

Additional builders in Persimmon Pointe include SAB Homes, Dusselier and Marks Homes, and Chris George Custom Homes.

“We are proud of what this community has to offer,” Acklin reported. “Where else can a new-home buyer find great value, great location and diversity of product, all at an affordable price? Persimmon Pointe is one of the only new-home communities at this price range to also display three fully-furnished models.”

In addition to touring the model row, visitors will find an array of new spec homes available in various stages of construction. They represent two-story, reverse 1-1/2-story, and ranch plans, priced from the $290,000s to the mid $300,000s. Currently, Persimmon Pointe has four homes ready for immediate occupancy, with additional inventory ready in 60-90 days.

With more, and more, homebuyers taking notice of Persimmon Pointe’s ideal Olathe location, only a handful of home sites and readily available inventory remain in this final phase. As this may soon be the last opportunity to build in this quite community, the time to act is now. Persimmon Pointe invites everyone interested in purchasing a new home to come discover this hidden gem of Olathe.

Canyon Creek Lenexa

Since Prime Development announced the opening of their fourth phase with 40 new home sites at Canyon Creek last spring, thousands of homebuyers have visited the community to take advantage of the latest offerings. As demand continues at unprecedented levels, Prime Development recently opened two new additional phases.

Some of the Kansas City area’s most beautiful, rolling and wooded terrain is found in and around Canyon Creek. As housing construction burgeons in this revitalized Lenexa neighborhood, Canyon Creek is blossoming into a premier metropolitan community. Canyon Creek provides homebuyers a vibrant lifestyle and a remarkable living environment.

For homebuyers who need early occupancy, there are several spec homes available for occupancy within 90 days, some available in less than 30 days. Home prices range in the $380,000’s to $800,000’s+, with plans including two-story, one-and-a-half story and reverse one-and-a-half story designs.

Canyon Creek is a master-planned residential community comprised of over 400 lots, thoughtfully planned with an eye for natural beauty. Over 70 acres of adjacent wooded parkland create a serene natural environment for the neighborhood.  To truly discover Canyon Creek’s natural beauty, prospective homebuyers are highly encouraged to view the new community video on or YouTube!

“Response to the affordable lot prices and the wide selection of spec homes has been incredible,” stated MaraDona Wood, co-marketer with partner Debbie Sinclair. “Prospective homeowners have been eager to take advantage of exceptional opportunities at Canyon Creek that became available only a few months ago. Lot reservations and home sales continue to increase as more and more home buyers discover what Canyon Creek has to offer.”

“With opening of the new phases, customers interest and enthusiasm has surpassed our highest expectations. We are amazed by the level of customer interest and invite everyone to join in the excitement,” adds Wood.

There is a multitude of desirable home sites at Canyon Creek, including treed, lakefront, greenbelt, walk-out and daylight lots. Over half of the lots are located on private cul-de-sacs, and over a third back to city parkland. Lot prices range from the upper $60’s to the mid $100’s.

In response to high demand, construction of the newest phases began in early spring, consisting of over 50 new home sites in The Highlands, and 13 highly coveted lake front home sites in The Shores. Available now, these phases offer new lakeside and treed lots. Choice building sites are going fast, so customers must act quickly to reserve their preferred lot. And if that wasn’t enough, Canyon Creek’s seven home, fully furnished, model row was the most awarded model row in the Kansas City metro area, receiving 10 awards during this year’s Fall Parade of Homes.

Homes are situated on curving streets and private cul-de-sacs, carefully designed to respect the contours of the land and oriented to provide views of open space. Inside the neighborhood, they find thoughtful residential enclaves that blend distinctive architecture with nature’s beauty to create a truly exceptional living environment. Next to Canyon Creek, paved trails along the forested shoreline of 7-acre Mize Park Lake are enjoyed daily by resident walkers, joggers, bicyclers, fishermen and nature lovers.

Canyon Creek’s three-acre amenity complex exhibits a high standard for family-oriented recreation. A free-form pool, replete with a sparkling fountain, features a large swimming area with a shallow “reef ledge” at one side that welcomes children and parents alike. There is an expansive deck with ample room for sunbathers, a striking pergola, and a handsome Prairie-style cabana building flanked by two covered porches that offer a shady reprieve from the sun. Other recreational features include a park-grade playground, a basketball court, and a large, open play field for recreational soccer, softball, Frisbee and football.

Canyon Creek has distinguished itself as the premier new home community in the city of Lenexa, which itself received national recognition when Business Week magazine named the city as the “Best Place to Raise Kids” in the state of Kansas. Located just off K-10 highway, one mile west of K-7, Canyon Creek provides quick and easy access to highway networks and close proximity to dining, entertainment, and recreational opportunities at nearby Lenexa parks.

When deciding to purchase a home in a Prime Development community, prospective buyers can feel secure they are investing in a Johnson County based real estate company with a long-running, financially secure history. Prime Development’s success through good and trying economic times is rooted in a philosophy of providing the right product in the right location at the right price, and building distinctive neighborhoods that exceed customer expectations.
