Tom French Communities conveniently located in sought after area of ​​Olathe


At Covington Creek, the Landon II Great Room, Kitchen and Dining Room offers an open floor plan with a transitional feel – traditional but with modern and contemporary elements.

After four decades as a builder and developer, Tom French has established a reputation for designing and building quality homes. French has several communities on the go, with several homes available at different stages, giving potential buyers a wealth of options to suit their needs, wants and lifestyles.

The new Covington Creek Single Family Home Community and Covington Court Twin Villa Community are conveniently located in Olathe near 115th Street and Lone Elm Road in a wooded, secluded, low traffic area. In the Olathe Northwest School District, students are within walking distance of Millbrooke Elementary School, Summit Trail Middle School, Goddard School, and the new campus of St. Paul’s School. An abundance of retail stores, restaurants, doctors’ offices and daycare centers are just down the street.

“Nearby parks, trails and recreation areas provide a wealth of outdoor fun,” said marketing officer Susan Hoskinson of ReeceNichols Real Estate. “These are special communities, in a desirable location.”

Covington Court

One of Tom’s most popular servicing communities, the neighborhood offers home sites to start from scratch or consider one of the many twin villas under construction, with prices starting in the low $500,000s.

Phase two is well advanced, providing home sites for the new reverse one-and-a-half floor plans, the Ensley II, with two bedrooms on the main level, and the Alderwood II.

Phase two also features the new Ensley III plan, a true ranch with three bedrooms on the main level. Open floor plans are ideal with kitchens and dining areas flowing into large large rooms leading out to covered decks and patios. One is available for immediate occupancy for those who want or need to move soon.

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

The ‘lock up and go’ lifestyle of the Covington Court twin villas is appealing to many, regardless of age or stage of life. Lawn and landscape maintenance, snow removal, roof and gutter repair/replacement, exterior painting and building insurance are all covered by the house association.

Developed by French, phase two of this single-family home community is open and offers an abundance of beautiful hangout sites backed by green space. Several homes are under construction by star 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-storey plan that accentuates living on the main level. The open kitchen, dining room, and great rooms, as well as the 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 cabinetry, the airy space is crisp and fresh. Hewn wall treatments, box beams and a beautiful rustic fireplace create a farmhouse style that today’s buyer will love.

Construction is underway on four Alexander II houses. The reverse floor and a half, also from Symphony Homes, offers an open floor plan with traditional yet modern and contemporary elements. The kitchen and dining room flow into a great great room leading to the covered patio with a corner outdoor fireplace. Storage is plentiful, including a large walk-in kitchen pantry, and the mudroom next to the garage is ideal for storing coats and gear. The lower level games room with standard built-in bar adds additional living space.

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

Amenities for sister communities Covington Creek and Covington Court, including a swimming pool and playground, are ready to be enjoyed.
