Tom French has been building superior custom homes and developing outstanding communities in the Kansas City area for over 40 years. 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. The result is charm blended with ease of care. French has several communities in progress, providing prospective buyers a wealth of options to suit their particular needs, desires and lifestyles.
Developed by French, the single family home community Covington Creek in Olathe offers a variety of plans, with prices starting in the high $400,000s. This neighborhood includes several walkout home sites to choose from, many backing to greenspace, with homes built by Symphony Homes and Hogan 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 to 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. The homes feature the luxurious touches that buyers have come to expect from these quality builders, such as striking ceiling treatments, exceptional trim details, expansive wood floors, dramatic fireplace design and rich color palettes that set the tone for a casual and elegant lifestyle.
There are home sites to start from the ground up, or for buyers wanting to move quickly, four homes are under construction.
Symphony Homes’ Alexander reverse story and a half home is complete and open Friday through Monday, noon to 5pm. The Alexander offers an open floor plan with the kitchen and dining area flowing into a large great room overlooking the covered deck with an outdoor corner fireplace. Storage is abundant in this plan, including a large walk-in kitchen pantry, and the mudroom off the garage is great for keeping coats and gear organized. The walkout lower level rec room with wet bar adds additional living space. It is Tour #255 on the Spring Parade of Homes and will also be open extended hours during the Parade, April 27 through May 12 – be sure to add it to your list of favorites to see.
