Imagine spending your summer with more time to do what you love — swim, bike, walk, play pickleball, cook, garden — and not worry about lawn maintenance, trash, or recycling. That’s the benefit of Bristol Highlands’ hassle-free villa living. And with several move-in ready villa homes available priced from the low $600,000s, homeowners can be settled into their new homes with plenty of time for summer fun and relaxation.
Available luxury villa homes include multiple detached villa floor plans built by J.S. Robinson Fine Homes. Two Rosemount floor plans (including the community’s former model home) each offer four bedrooms, three bathrooms and a three-car garage. Highlights of the Rosemount layout include a spacious main level that effortlessly flows from entry and dining room into the great room, kitchen and a breakfast area with direct patio or deck access. Downstairs, the reverse 1 ½-story layout includes a large family room with optional bar, two bedrooms, a bathroom and convenient unfinished storage space. Fully equipped kitchens include soft-close drawers, stainless steel appliances and a sizable walk-in pantry. Prospective buyers are encouraged to tour each of these available homes to experience their varying features, including a built-in mud room entry in the former model home at 8193 Valley Rd. and a great room with cathedral ceiling and ridge beam at 8178 Valley Rd.
J.S. Robinson Fine Homes also has a Rosemount Custom floor plan that’s move-in ready. The four-bedroom, three-bathroom, reverse 1 ½-story home features a two-car garage; a gourmet kitchen with a five-burner gas cooktop, quartz island, a spacious pantry and custom painted cabinetry. Enjoy covered patio access directly from the dining room. A wall of windows showers the living area with natural light, made even more inviting with a fireplace. More thoughtful details include a coffee bar in the owner’s bathroom, a walk-in closet that adjoins a laundry room and a lower-level recreation room with walk-up bar and cabinets.
Elsewhere in Bristol Highlands South, Don Julian Builders offers four move-in ready homes available as two twin villa floor plans, as well as a detached villa on a homesite that walks out to green space. The four-bedroom, 3.1-bathroom Kirkwood home at 8181 Valley Rd. includes a three-car garage, a vaulted great room accented by a magnificent fireplace, a gourmet kitchen complete with an island and pantry, and additional main-level space that includes a study, powder room and mud room. Downstairs, the lower level offers three additional bedrooms, two bathrooms and a multipurpose recreation room complete with a wet bar and easy covered patio access.
Or choose from two available twin villa floor plans, including the four-bedroom, three-bathroom Jefferson plan. Each side offers 2,662 square feet of living space over a main and lower level. The owner’s bedroom enjoys prime views of the home’s rear porch. The owner’s suite blends comfort and convenience, including easy access from the bedroom into the spacious bathroom, walk-in closet, and adjoining laundry room. The lower level includes a mix of bedrooms, a bathroom, a game room, and unfinished storage space.
Two villa homes are also move-in ready featuring Don Julian Builders’ Eagleton floor plan, a three-bedroom, three-bathroom layout with 2,426 square feet of living space. Highlights include a main-floor home office just off the dining room and a large rear porch on which to enjoy the surrounding views. The lower level offers two bedrooms, a bathroom, a game room, and unfinished storage space.
In addition, the Bristol Highlands team is in the midst of final preparations to launch the second phase of Bristol Highlands South, which introduces an incredible line-up of homesites to the western Lenexa community.
“We thought our lots in phase 1 were gorgeous, but phase 2 has some even more fantastic locations,” said Brandi Jones, who markets Bristol Highlands with Karen Campbell for Weichert, Realtors Welch & Company. “We’re already collecting names of interested buyers and anticipate that these new homesites will sell quickly.”
Once the second phase is open, Lambie Homes will be the exclusive twin-villa builder. The Lambie Homes team brings more than 40 years of experience to each build job and has earned a well-deserved reputation for extraordinary quality, exemplary customer service and impeccable attention to detail. Reservations are now being accepted in this second phase.
Explore Bristol Highlands and you’ll notice a resort-style amenities complex beginning to take shape. With an anticipated opening of summer 2025, community amenities will include a resort-style swimming pool with zero-entry, sports courts, cabanas, a playground, and ample green space. A newly released opportunity gives Bristol Highlands South residents a chance to gain access to the Bristol Highlands North amenity complex once it opens.
Until then, homeowners can make the most of a prime western Shawnee location that’s less than 10 minutes to the Lenexa City Center, a bustling haven of recreation, dining, shopping and more. Shawnee Mission Park is also nearby, as is another favorite biking, hiking, and swimming destination at Lake Lenexa in Black Hoof Park.
Sports enthusiasts have plenty of options, too, from nearby baseball fields and sports complexes to Canyon Farms Golf Club and its on-premises restaurant, Silo Modern Farmhouse, a favorite destination for foodies throughout the Kansas City metro area.
Bristol Highlands North is a newer addition to the community with single-family homes in western Shawnee. Bristol Highlands North includes the Estates, which features larger homesites and homes priced from the low $900,000s. The primary builders are Don Julian Builders and J.S. Robinson Fine Homes, although a select number of homesites can be purchased for buyers to work with an outside builder.
Single-family homes are also available in the Manors, with prices ranging from the low $700,000s to the mid-$900,000s. Several homes have already been sold in the Manors and residents will begin moving in this summer. The building team, including Don Julian, J.S. Robinson, New Mark Homes, Rob Washam Homes and Chris George Custom Homes, is hard at work on speculative homes that give buyers flexible move-in timelines. Occupancy starts as early as this summer ranging into the next several months.
Bristol Highlands is open daily, so make plans to tour this exceptional western Johnson County community and act quickly to secure your move-in ready home. Then, you can spend more time planning your dream summer. After all, you shouldn’t have to completely abandon the idea of a summer break once you’re done with school!
