After nearly four decades as a home builder and developer, Tom French has established a reputation for designing and constructing superior homes. A pioneer in building maintenance-provided communities, French has five communities in progress, providing prospective buyers a wealth of options to suit their particular needs, desires and lifestyles.

And at two of his newest communities, he is offering a huge Summer Savings Special for those who are wanting to move soon: Purchase any of the inventory homes in Covington Court Twin Villas or Gatewood Villas before Sept. 30, 2016, and receive free wrap screening on the back deck, screen door and 4” x 4” deck-level landing with stairs to grade.

The twin villa community Covington Court is located just south of K-10 at 115th Street and Lone Elm Road in Olathe. The community features the successful and improved Alderwood plan, a beautiful reverse story and a half design with three bedrooms, two and a half bathrooms and a two car garage.

The Alderwood’s open main level flows from the entry to the kitchen, dining room and family room and also offers a pocket office. The master suite includes a bathroom with jetted tub, a walk-behind custom shower with tumbled marble floor and mosaic accents, plus twin vanities. The master bath opens into a large walk-in closet with access to the laundry that also conveniently opens to the mudroom and pocket office. The daylight lower level encompasses a large recreation room, second and third bedrooms and a full bathroom.

A new plan, the Ensley, offers a similar open design but has two bedrooms on the main level. The plan flows from the entry to the kitchen, dining room and great room. The large master suite includes a bathroom with double vanities and a large custom tiled shower, which boasts a seat and recessed shelf. This plan has a second bedroom on the main level that could also be used as a den or office. The daylight finished lower level includes a large recreation room, third bedroom and full bathroom.

“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. Come out and take a look at the fresh new designs and décor available,” said marketing agent Susan Hoskinson with Better Homes and Gardens Real Estate, Kansas City Homes.

Situated at College and Montclaire Drive in Olathe, Gatewood Villas is a secluded, 21 homesite neighborhood where all of the stand-alone, maintenance-provided villas have walkout lower levels and back up to wooded greenspace. This community has easy access to K-10 and K-7 Highways, allowing homeowners to quickly get anywhere in the greater Kansas City area, Lawrence and Topeka. Two unique homes are ready for occupancy. The reverse story and a half residences boast four bedrooms, three bathrooms, three-car garages, and 2,500 to 3,000 square feet of exceptionally finished living space that the public has come to expect from Tom French Homes.

All of the homes offer an open floor plan with a traditional entry, large great room with vaulted ceiling, an ample dining area and a gourmet kitchen. Several arched openings, elegant trim details, expansive wood floors, a dramatic fireplace design and a rich color palette set the tone for a casual elegance expected in villa living. Window placement and outdoor living areas take advantage of the views afforded by the secluded home sites.

Gatewood Villas models are open 12-5 p.m. Saturday and Sunday and Covington Court models are open Friday through Monday 12-5 p.m. For more information, call Susan Hoskinson with Better Homes and Gardens Real Estate, Kansas City Homes at 913-484-2839 or visit TomFrenchHomes.com or NewHomesKC.net.
