The Spring Parade of Homes, which runs daily through May 9, is a Kansas City tradition, offering homebuyers the opportunity to view the latest in new home designs and innovations from the finest homebuilders, such as Tom French Homes. As one of the area’s most respected homebuilders, Tom French has been building superior custom homes, plus developing maintenance-provided and single family neighborhoods since 1978.
French has several communities in progress. Interest has been strong, and inventory has been selling fast, especially at Covington Creek and Covington Court. Time is of the essence for those wanting to move in 2021 as inventory that will be available this year is limited.
Covington Creek Developed by French, this neighborhood combines one of the area’s best builders, a top-rated school district, and beautiful views to create an inviting and popular community. The single-family home community offers a variety of plans in the Olathe Northwest school district. Phase two is open and offers an abundance of gorgeous walkout homesites backing to greenspace.
Several homes are under construction, or will soon start, by featured builder Symphony Homes. These include a traditional story and a half home with walkout lower level and a reverse story and a half home with walkout lower level. Additionally, Symphony Homes has started construction on a new two story home.
Parade entry #236, Symphony Homes’ Landon II plan at 11552 S. Roundtree is available to tour. At over 2,900 square feet and offering four bedrooms, the spacious one and a half story plan accentuates main level living. The open kitchen, dining and great rooms, plus master bedroom, den and laundry room are all on the same level. The walkout lower level can be finished for additional living space. Featuring light wood floors and white cabinets, the airy space is crisp and fresh. Shiplap, box beams and a beautiful rustic fireplace create a farmhouse style today’s buyer will love.
The Alexander reverse story and a half plan offers an open floor plan with a transitional feel – traditional yet with modern and contemporary elements. The kitchen and dining area flow 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, 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.
Amenities for the sister communities Covington Creek and Covington Court, including a pool and playground area, are ready for enjoyment.
Covington Court Located off 115th Street and Lone Elm Road in northwest Olathe’s growth corridor is 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 homes under construction, with prices starting in the low $400,000s. 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.
“Tom had many requests for a three bedroom ranch plan and the new Ensley III plan has received such a positive response,” said marketing agent Susan Hoskinson with Better Homes and Gardens Real Estate, Kansas City Homes.
Tuscany Piazza Townhomes is a boutique community with just six Tom French reverse story and a half homes, located at 137th Street, east of Mission Road near Leawood’s best restaurants and shops. The stunning stone and stucco exteriors feature charming old-world Tuscan flavor and flair with a beautiful entrance fountain, paver streets and a picturesque pond; while the interiors beckon with today’s popular transitional design. The homes offer two bedrooms and two bathrooms on the main level plus one bedroom, one bathroom and a recreation room on the lower level, with room to expand. The last three homes are now available for occupancy.
“Come out and see the craftsmanship and attention to detail in a Tom French home,” Hoskinson said. “Buyers have been attracted to the carefree lock-and-leave lifestyle.”
