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 Pointeis 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.
