Although its transformation is far from over, there’s no denying that Loch Lloyd has become an iconic destination for homeowners who not only want to live in luxury — they want to experience it, too. The Loch Lloyd lifestyle is one that immerses residents in the extraordinary, and that begins with homes like the stately reverse 1½-story model home from celebrated builder Willis Custom Homes.
Tucked away on a prime homesite that backs to Loch Lloyd’s crown jewel, the Tom Watson Signature Design golf course, the home showcases exemplary residential architecture and features that prospective buyers haven’t yet seen in this part of the country.
“The comments I get about the plan — people say they’ve never seen anything like it unless they’ve been in the southwest part of the country,” said Patrick Willis of Willis Custom Homes.
A large part of the home’s appeal is the open, thoughtfully designed floor plan that eliminates typically unused rooms, thereby creating larger, more inviting living spaces. And in keeping with the Loch Lloyd philosophy of intelligent design and year-round outdoor living, features like a huge sunroom with glass walls that open to the outdoors, a spacious outdoor kitchen and a coveted golf course location make spending time outside as appealing as relaxing indoors.
For Willis, the opportunity to build in Loch Lloyd is a chance to bring to life a natural synergy between the company’s custom floor plans and the community.
“It’s so fun to build out here because you have to hit the mark,” Willis said. “Loch Lloyd residents feel like they’re on vacation, and that’s how you have to build the homes. People want to relax and entertain. And this floor plan — our flagship reverse plan — is tasteful, comfortable and approachable. It’s not intimidating. People can envision living in the home and loving it.”
The award-winning model home, located at 16111 Carnoustie, is one of several model homes open to tour at Loch Lloyd this weekend and is one of two model homes for sale. Both this home and a model home by Forner-LaVoy Homes — originally built as part of Loch Lloyd’s Spring and Fall Parade of Homes showcase — are now ready for an immediate move-in. Plus, both Willis Custom Homes and Forner-LaVoy Homes are offering a full year’s membership to the Tom Watson Signature Golf Course to the lucky homeowners who take advantage of these two incredible opportunities.
While touring the community, prospective buyers will have a chance to learn more about an exciting new addition to Loch Lloyd. A new gated entrance will be built on the north end of the property near the Kansas state line, giving Loch Lloyd residents access to Leawood and Overland Park in less than three minutes.
“This is a game changer for Loch Lloyd,” said Chuck Campbell, president of real estate development at Loch Lloyd. “When the new bridge opens at 151st Street and State Line within the next 12 months, Loch Lloyd is directly connected to south Johnson County.”
Campbell continued, “This time next year, when the new gate and the new bridge connecting Overland Park/Leawood and Loch Lloyd are open, a 5-minute drive from the model homes will carry you well into Leawood past 135th Street and State Line Road, or well into Overland Park past 151st Street and Nall. The power of this connection cannot be understated — Loch Lloyd will be directly connected to Leawood and Overland Park.”
As prospective buyers explore all that Loch Lloyd has to offer, they’ll also have a firsthand opportunity to enjoy the incredible sense of community that’s become one of Loch Lloyd’s hallmarks. Thanks to a lively social events calendar and ample opportunities for recreation, mingling and entertaining, Loch Lloyd residents develop lasting connections that add yet another dimension to life in the vibrant, welcoming community.
Visit Loch Lloyd this weekend and let the community captivate your imagination with the art of the possible.
“There’s no other place we build that has the feel of Loch Lloyd. It’s like stepping into a whole other world when you’re out here,” Willis said.
