As the Spring Parade of Homes concludes Sunday, make plans to visit Loch Lloyd and celebrate exciting news. Both of the community’s Spring Parade entries—a luxe contemporary and a charming transitional—received KCHBA Gold American Dream Awards, a testament to the exemplary quality and craftsmanship of each home.
Cecil & Ray Homes’ parade entry is a reverse 1½-story home that offers sleek modern features, including a free-floating metal staircase with iron and glass railings and a 5-ton, 15-foot long slate hearth fireplace on the first floor that descends to another 4-ton, 10-foot long slate hearth fireplace below with a suspended steel beam structure enhanced with stainless steel panels and native stone. Rift sawn white oak wood with steel banding in-lays creates a stunning backdrop for the kitchen and hearth rooms and the hardwood floors are painted with a 4-step custom faux finish.
Additional interior features include four bedrooms, 3½ bathrooms and a spacious kitchen enhanced by a walk-in pantry and an adjoining wet bar, ideal for entertaining. The lower level media and entertainment rooms adjoin a show-stopping bar with four inset televisions surrounded by an antique mirror tiled wall and ceiling. Up-to-the minute technology including in-wall Amazon Echo Dots, in-wall iPads and Lutron lighting allow this home to be controlled from a cell phone, tablet or by voice. All tile floors are heated throughout the home, including the travertine pavers leading to the hot tub on the lower level patio that’s flanked by woods.
“What separates Loch Lloyd from other communities is the natural terrain,” said Ryan Ray, President, Cecil & Ray Homes. “From our initial concept drawings to the finished product, our goal is to take advantage of site lines and blend the architecture into the surroundings. The quality of the homesites and the terrain in Loch Lloyd simply can’t be recreated anywhere else.”
The home is 4,704 square feet and is sold. Tour this parade entry (#105) at 760 Suffolk Lane.
Starr Homes’ model home provides a welcoming entry into an ideally designed reverse 1½-story home. The transitional interior aesthetic combines modern and classic elements and includes four bedrooms, four full and two half bathrooms, a beautiful kitchen with a butler’s pantry and an oversized three-car garage. The lower level features a spectacular three-sided glass-walled wine room with stacked stone interior wall and an adjoining bar, media and entertainment areas that open to a garden-level patio inviting all to enjoy the indoor and outdoor space. This award-worthy home is set on a wooded cul-de-sac homesite with stunning views of the Tom Watson Golf Course.
“The Palermo is a new plan by Starr Homes and encompasses all the elements buyers are looking for in today’s home — everyday living on the main floor and exceptional outdoor and entertainment space on all levels,” said Bob Osterlund, Vice President, Starr Homes. “This floorplan reflects the way people live today. This magnificent, energy-efficient home, accompanied by the picturesque setting of Loch Lloyd, make this a must-see for the parade!”
Prospective buyers are encouraged to explore the 4,455-square-foot parade entry (#106) at 203 Carnoustie.
While touring the parade entries, prospective buyers will also have a chance to learn more about an exciting new addition to Loch Lloyd. A new, gated entrance is under construction on the north end of the property near the Kansas state line.
“We are excited to offer this new connection between Loch Lloyd and neighboring Leawood and Overland Park,” said Ashlea Black, Director of Sales & Marketing for Loch Lloyd. “It offers easier access to the community for many of our residents and guests, and overall saves traveling time.”
Black continued, “In the coming year, the new gate and the new bridge will connect our community to all of the shopping, dining and entertainment options along 135th Street and other nearby destinations along 119th and 151st streets.”
The myth that Loch Lloyd is “built out” has been dispelled with the continued expansion on the north end of the community; the recent release of The Cove, a maintenance-provided enclave near the south end of the lake; the two parade entries from established builders like Cecil & Ray Homes and Starr Homes; and four additional new models underway for 2019. Visit Loch Lloyd during the Spring Parade of Homes, which concludes today, to experience this extraordinary community!
