If you’re looking for a maintenance-provided villa in one of Johnson County’s fastest-selling new homes communities, Willow Pointe offers a range of price points, floor plans, and home sites. But time is of the essence—only seven homes in various stages of construction remain in this gracious, well-curated neighborhood nestled in The Willows at 147th Terrace and Pflumm Rd. in Olathe.
The Covenant-Rodrock Homes community, comprised of three distinctive neighborhoods—including Willow Grove, Willow Pointe, and The Preserve—appeals to buyers looking for inspired living. Residents can take advantage of amenities like a walking trail, zero-entry pool, a well-equipped playground, and easy access to Johnson County dining, shopping, and attractions. A must for many buyers, The Willows is situated in the stellar, sought-after Blue Valley School District.
With limited availability of new-build villas in Johnson County, Willow Pointe highlights some of Kansas City’s most renowned builders: Bickimer Homes, Covenant Custom Homes, James Engle Custom Homes, New Mark Homes, and Rodrock Homes.
“There are many reasons why The Willows is attractive—it’s a familiar location offering classic Johnson County living, has a diverse collection of floor plans and world-class amenities and is in an acclaimed school district,” said Weichert Realtors Welch & Company real estate agent and The Willows community manager Brenda Youness. “And maintenance-provided Willow Pointe helps streamline lifestyles—something many people are seeking.”
Willow Pointe: Buyers focused on quality, location, details.
Saunny and Chad Wiley, a couple with three grown children no longer at home, have resided in Overland Park for 15 years and several years ago decided to downsize. They selected Willow Pointe because of location and the floor plan, which answered their priority of main-floor living.
“We didn’t want to move further south, so The Willows’ location suited us,” Saunny said. “The maintenance-provided feature was a bonus. And although we’re empty nesters, being in the Blue Valley School District factored into our decision—our children attended Blue Valley schools and we were very pleased. We knew that being in the district would be a plus for resale.”
The Wiley’s chose Bickimer Homes, drawn to the integrity of the builder’s homes and the eye-catching Eastwood floor plan.
“After visiting Bickimer’s Eastwood model and seeing firsthand the finishes and pretty trim, we knew who we wanted as our builder,” Saunny said. “The style, more contemporary with a bit of a traditional flair, is an open concept with high ceilings, which we love. Our kitchen has a large island and convenient walk-in pantry and the main level features stained beams in the living room that add a beautiful design element. Outdoor living is enhanced by a screened-in deck with a fireplace—the perfect place to relax.”
The couple moved into their new home in September 2021 and appreciates the seamless building experience and expert guidance they received from Brenda, Amy and the Bickimer team.
“Everyone was informative and communicated well in answering questions that we had throughout the entire process,” Saunny said. “We even recommended The Willows to friends who also purchased a home in Willow Pointe.”
“There is great demand for luxury villa living in a prime Johnson County location and we’re excited that Willow Pointe has proven popular with homebuyers like Saunny and Chad,” Maher said. “People like the maintenance-free environment, with tasks like mowing and shoveling no longer on their to-do list.”
Willow Pointe: Maintenance-provided villas nearly gone.
The Willows’ final phase, Willow Pointe showcases villa living combining classic comfort and a penchant for modern lifestyles, with prices ranging from the mid-$600s to the upper $700s.
“Unlike many villa neighborhoods, Willow Pointe’s homes don’t look alike,” said Weichert Realtors Welch & Company real estate agent and The Willows community manager Amy Maher. “Buyers can choose from a variety of stunning floor plans with high-quality materials and superb craftsmanship that effortlessly blend life and style. Opportunities are available to build on a few remaining home sites or purchase a home already in process.”
Two Princeton floor plans by James Engle Custom Homes are scheduled to be built (daylight sites, $700s) and Bickimer is preparing to frame a Jefferson EX (daylight site, mid-$700s). The Kylee Reverse by New Mark Homes, boasting a spacious primary suite on the main level, is ready for interior selections (flat home site, upper $600s). Another New Mark Homes floor plan, The Payton ranch with three main-level bedrooms, is framed (daylight site, mid-$600s). Rodrock’s brand-new, three-bedroom, 2.5-bath Sage ranch is ready to begin construction (daylight site, low $600s).
Willow Grove: Final phase.
Youness suggests that discerning buyers act quickly as the neighborhood is nearly complete, with two home sites available and 16 inventory homes—including reverses and 1.5- and 2-story designs. Several of the homes underway are on beautiful walk-out home sites backing to green space.
Rodrock has five homes in progress that could be completed in six months—just in time for the holidays—including two Aspen II plans, a Kingston, and two Lancaster designs ($700s-$800s).
“These floor plans are in various stages of construction and won’t last long,” Youness said.
The Preserve: One remaining home.
The Willows estate neighborhood’s final home is in progress, a Bickimer Augusta with a side-entry garage.
“The Preserve is just right for buyers wanting a home built on a larger property by a distinguished builder,” Maher said. “We anticipate this Bickimer beauty will sell quickly.”
Julie and Joe Pascuzzi, Preserve homeowners since December 2019, were already fond of The Willows, since it was almost in their old backyard.
“We previously lived in the area for 10 years, so we’re fans of what we consider an ideal Johnson County location,” said Julie. “It’s certainly a popular destination for new home buyers and we’re excited to see the community near completion.”
