Tom French communities ideally located in desirable Olathe location

After four decades as a home builder and developer, Tom French has established a reputation for

designing and constructing quality homes. French has several communities in progress, with multiple homes available in various stages, providing prospective buyers with a wealth of options to suit their needs, desires, and lifestyles.

The single-family new home community Covington Creek and the twin villa community Covington Court are ideally located in Olathe near 115th Street and Lone Elm Road in a treed, secluded, low-traffic area. In the Olathe Northwest school district, students are within walking distance of Millbrooke Elementary, Summit Trail Middle School, The Goddard School, and the new St. Paul School Campus. An abundance of retail shops, restaurants, medical offices, and daycare centers are just down the road.

“Nearby parks, trails, and recreational areas provide a wealth of outdoor enjoyment,” noted marketing agent Susan Hoskinson with ReeceNichols Real Estate. “These are special communities, in a desirable location.”

Covington Court

One of Tom’s most popular maintenance-provided communities, the neighborhood offers home sites to start from the ground up or consider one of several twin villas under construction, with prices starting in the low $500,000s.

Phase Two is well underway, offering walkout home sites for the new reverse story and a half plans, the Ensley II, with two bedrooms on the main level, and the Alderwood II.

Phase Two also offers the new Ensley III plan, a true ranch with three bedrooms on the main level. The open floor plans are ideal with the kitchens and dining areas flowing into the large great rooms overlooking the covered decks and patios. One is available for immediate occupancy for those wanting or needing to move soon.

“Tom had many requests for a three-bedroom ranch plan and the new Ensley III plan has received such a positive response,” said Hoskinson. “Covington Court is an opportunity to ‘right size’ your next home purchase, with all the new energy-efficient products being used today in newly constructed homes.”

The ‘lock-and-leave’ lifestyle at Covington Court twin villas is attractive to many, regardless of age or life stage. Lawn and landscape care, snow removal, roof and gutter repair/replacement, exterior painting, and building insurance are all taken care of by the homes association.

Developed by French, Phase Two of this single-family home community is open and offers an abundance of gorgeous walkout homesites backing to greenspace. Several homes are in progress by featured builders Symphony Homes and Tom French Construction.

Symphony Homes’ Landon II plan at over 3,100 square feet and offering four bedrooms, is a spacious one and a half story plan that accentuates main level living. The open kitchen, dining, and great rooms, plus master bedroom, den, and laundry room are all on the main level. The large lower level can be finished for additional living space. Featuring gorgeous wood floors and white cabinets, the airy space is crisp and fresh. Trimmed wall treatments, box beams, and a beautiful rustic fireplace create a farmhouse style today’s buyer will love.

Construction is underway on four Alexander II homes. The reverse story and a half plan, also by Symphony Homes, offers an open floor plan with traditional yet modern and contemporary elements. The kitchen and dining area flows into a large great room overlooking the covered deck with an outdoor corner fireplace. Storage is abundant, including a large walk-in kitchen pantry, plus the mudroom off the garage is great for keeping coats and gear organized. The walkout lower level rec room with standard feature walk-behind bar adds additional living space.

Tom French Construction has started construction on a new two-story plan, the Bentley, with four bedrooms, three and a half bathrooms, and a modern farmhouse exterior.

Amenities for the sister communities Covington Creek and Covington Court, including a pool and playground area, are ready for enjoyment.
