Drive through the stately gates just once and you’ll understand why the Village of Loch Lloyd is regarded as the finest gated resort lifestyle community in the Midwest. The Loch Lloyd lifestyle is one that immerses residents in the extraordinary. That experience begins with Loch Lloyd’s enviable homes, including the masterpiece of a model home from Forner-LaVoy Builders, Inc.
An award-winning trio — Forner-LaVoy, architect Scott Bickford and designer Janet Alholm — collaborated to bring to life an extraordinary custom estate that reflects their years of experience and expertise.
James LaVoy, co-owner of Forner-LaVoy Builders, Inc., said the reverse 1½-story home exemplifies the company’s commitment to maximize square footage for optimal form and function.
Inside, the Forner-LaVoy team put careful thought into how to best use all of the available space. Because the home is on a walkout, cul-de-sac homesite, LaVoy said they finished the space underneath the garage, an ideal spot for storage, that results in more finished square footage downstairs. And thanks to the topography of this particular homesite, the home’s lower level offers soaring 10-foot ceilings, adding a feeling of airy openness that’s not commonly found in lower levels.
Never miss a local story.
“There’s a thoughtful flow from room to room,” he said. “It’s a very open floor plan with high, arching ceilings. We went with a Colorado rustic exterior look and a transitional look on the inside, combining modern with more classic elements.”
Take the kitchen, which is a chef’s dream, complete with ample cabinetry, a sizable kitchen island and top-of-the-line appliances. The area is further enhanced by Alholm’s influence, including a “window” made of mirrors above the range and a customized, handcrafted range hood that LaVoy said is a one-of-a-kind addition.
Additional interior highlights include a sumptuous master suite, complete with laundry facilities inside the master closet; sizable windows that allow for abundant natural light to flow throughout the home; and, inside the half-bathroom on the main level, a custom vanity created by Alholm that mimics the architectural style of the range hood.
“We get a lot of comments on that vanity,” LaVoy said. “It, like the rest of the house, is getting rave reviews.”
Originally built for the Parade of Homes showcase, this incredible home — along with an eye-catching model home by Willis Custom Homes — is now available for an immediate move-in. Both Forner-LaVoy Builers and Willis Custom Homes are offering a Full Golf Membership to the Country Club of Loch Lloyd to the lucky homeowners who take advantage of these two captivating opportunities.
Prospective buyers are encouraged to visit Loch Lloyd this weekend and tour Forner-LaVoy’s home, along with several other models. Visitors will also have a chance to learn more about an exciting new addition to Loch Lloyd that’s kept the community buzzing. 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. This strong social fabric is especially evident throughout the holiday season, when festive gatherings and decorations add a touch of holiday magic to the warm, welcoming community.
Visit Loch Lloyd this weekend and let the community captivate your imagination with the art of the possible.
“It’s a truly special home,” LaVoy said. “Come see it this weekend. You’ll be glad you did.”
