Westwood Affordable homes near the Plaza - Jean Williams Real Estate Editor
Christi Clark has lived in Westwood for 10 years and she has no plans to move any time soon. This small, northern Johnson County city of about 1,500 people offers everything she wants for her family.
“I love it here,” Clark said. “There are a lot of fun things to do. In the summer, there are movies on Friday nights in the park. Westwood residents can swim at the Woodside Racquet Club pool and play tennis for a reasonable fee. It’s close to the Plaza and about two minutes from highway access on I-35, just up Mission Road. And we have the best barbecue in the world at Oklahoma Joe’s.” Clark, who is a sales associate for Reece & Nichols, said she has sold a number of homes in Westwood, which is north of Shawnee Mission Parkway, south of 47th Street and stretches from State Line Road to Mission Road, wrapping around the tiny community of Westwood Hills. “The home prices are reasonable,” Clark said. “I think people like to have a Fairway address, but they are missing the boat if they don’t consider Westwood. You have to pay more in Fairway.”
Fairway is just to the south of Westwood, in the area south of Shawnee Mission Parkway that also includes Mission Hills and is often referred to by Realtors as “The Golden Triangle.” Clark said homes in Westwood for the most part range in age from 40 to 70 years old and are priced anywhere from the mid $100,000s to the upper $300,000s. “The price range for homes on the market right now is from $130,000 to $390,000,” she said. “We’ve had some sales for as high as $425,000.
Home styles run the gamut, according to Jennifer Watkins with the Koehler Bortnick Team of Reece & Nichols Realtors, and include Tudors, cape cods and ranches. “It depends on the block that you are on,” she said. “Styles vary greatly from block to block. Farther south near Shawnee Mission Parkway the homes are a little newer and there are a lot of ranches. The farther north you go, they are a little older and many of them are built of stone. The majority of those are cape cods and Tudors.” The homes have a lot of charm and character, Clark said, adding “some people are coming in and doing beautiful remodeling, in keeping with the character of the homes.”
One of the biggest draws to Westwood, according to both Watkins and Clark, is the elementary school within the neighborhood, Westwood View. “People move there for the school,” Watkins said. “It is one of the best in the city. They prefer to send their kids there instead of one of the nearby private schools.”
Children also attend Indian Hills Middle School and Shawnee Mission East High School, all in the Shawnee Mission School District.
In addition to being minutes away from the Country Club Plaza, Westwood is also near the Fairway Shops that offer a grocery store, restaurant and various shops and services.
“Whenever I go to the Hen House or Houlihan’s at the Fairway Shops, I run into someone I know,” Clark said. “And I love Rainy Day books. My kids can walk there to get books to help with school projects.”
