For over 30 years, Tom French has been building superior custom homes and developing outstanding communities in the Kansas City area. From townhomes to patio homes and single family residences, Tom French Homes offers award winning designs and quality workmanship which form the foundation for a highly respected reputation.
One of his newest and highly anticipated projects is the single family community, Covington Creek. Located off Lone Elm Road at 115th Street, just east of K7 and south of College Boulevard, this community offers a variety of two story, reverse story and a half, and traditional story and a half homes, with prices starting in the low $400s. The 69 homes, built in two phases, include several walkout home sites to choose from, many backing to greenspace.
Developed by French, Covington Creek has available homes built by Gabriel Homes, JFE Construction and New Mark Homes. Each of these builders brings their own unique talents, expertise, craftsmanship, and energy- efficient processes and materials to the community. Each builder offers several distinct floor plans with at least four bedrooms, three or four baths and three car garages. Homes will feature exceptional finished living space of 2,500 to 3,500 square feet with several attractive elevation designs for each floor plan.
The model home is open Friday through Monday 12 to 5 pm, and is also available for purchase. For buyers wanting to move quickly, the model and five spec homes will be ready for occupancy in less than 30 days. Additional spec homes will be underway and construction will start soon on a new model row.
“Interest has been strong and with five homes already sold and occupied, we expect these properties to sell quickly,” said marketing agent Susan Hoskinson with Better Homes and Gardens Real Estate, Kansas City Homes.
Many of the homes offer an open floor plan with a traditional entry, large great room with vaulted ceiling, an ample dining area, a gourmet kitchen, plus the luxurious touches that buyers have come to expect from these quality builders. Several arched openings, elegant trim details, expansive wood floors, dramatic fireplace design and rich color palettes set the tone for a casual and elegant lifestyle.
Be sure to include on your list of Parade favorites Tour #41 at 11523 S. Montclaire, the two story Landon plan by New Mark Homes. The functional four bedroom, three and a half bath home offers a butler’s pantry as well as a walk-in pantry and built-in office area, mud room and large covered deck perfect for entertaining or just relaxing. The open floor plan has high ceilings and a great flow.
Gabriel Homes’ Savannah is an open floor plan with the kitchen and dining area flowing into a large great room overlooking the covered porch. Unique design elements include rustic hardwood flooring and beams. A luxurious bath with freestanding tub is accessible to the main level master bedroom through barn-style doors.
JFE’s Woodland III story and a half plan offers over 2,700 square feet of easy living, with two bedrooms on the main level, a dramatic staircase, and spacious kitchen with a walk-in pantry and large covered patio.
“Covington Creek’s convenient location in a growing area offers easy highway access, allowing homeowners to quickly get anywhere in the greater Kansas City area, Lawrence and Topeka,” said marketing agent Cindy Cunningham with Better Homes and Gardens Real Estate, Kansas City Homes. “This is a special community, in a desirable location in Olathe Northwest school district, and featuring some of the top builders in the city.”
