From the moment residents drive through the secured gates at the Village of Loch Lloyd, their lives change. They’ve left the hectic world behind and entered a serene environment surrounded by their friends that is teaming with opportunities for living a healthy life.
All of it is provided thanks to the vision of developer FiveStar Lifestyles, owned by Neal Patterson and Cliff Illig, the co-founders of Cerner Corporation. The luxury estate homes and intelligently designed villas are just part of the equation. The resort lifestyle is created by the Country Club at Loch Lloyd, where members have access to golf on the acclaimed Tom Watson Signature Design course, as well as other venues that encourage healthy lifestyles, such as the fully equipped fitness center, tennis courts and swimming pools, not to mention the vibrant social fabric that revolves around the award-winning clubhouse.
The lifestyle is so appealing that residents don’t leave, even when their lifestyles change. Many residents choose to move from large estate homes in Loch Lloyd after their children are grown to a “right-sized” home that fits their active empty-nester lifestyle. Some who left, looking for the perfect retirement home elsewhere, ultimately moved back after realizing Loch Lloyd was the perfect place for them.
“We were spoiled with the Loch Lloyd lifestyle,” said one resident who moved only to return to Loch Lloyd. “It’s beautiful out here. When you drive through the gates, there is a sense of relaxation, beauty and nature. When you live here, you take it for granted — but once you leave it, you realize just how wonderful it is.
“The magic of Loch Lloyd goes well beyond the community and golf course, it’s the people – the strong sense of community that’s unlike anything I’ve ever experienced. I belong to the ladies golf association and Home & Garden Club and they are just fun women. I wouldn’t give it up for the world.”
Loch Lloyd offers a complete lifestyle for families of all ages and interests. Those with young children appreciate the security the gated community offers and the summer activities for children. The Country Club at Loch Lloyd offers far more than golf; in fact, 50 percent of the residents don’t play golf. They immerse themselves in all the other resort-like activities including all the social events at the clubhouse where people gather and become friends.
The Health Club fosters not only a healthy lifestyle through a wide variety of activities, but a bond between the neighbors who meet there. Those offerings include a large group fitness room with the latest equipment, locker rooms, dry saunas, massages, personal trainers, group fitness classes, a holistic nutrition and health coach, and Thai yoga massage.
Loch Lloyd residents enjoy a multitude of other activities that create a strong sense of community, such as the popular Home & Garden Club, summer programs for children and a vibrant social fabric with events like wine tastings, deck crawls and festive celebrations of the major holidays throughout the year. It is that total Loch Lloyd experience that draws new residents and keeps existing residents for a lifetime.
As one new resident put it, “Like most of our friends, we spent the last 25 years living for our children. When our last child left for college, we made a conscious decision that we’re going to embrace life — to live the next 25 years for us. Loch Lloyd is the perfect lifestyle for us for the next phase of our life.”
Those who want to experience all that Loch Lloyd has to offer will be delighted to know the community recently released 29 spectacular lots overlooking the 6th and 7th golf holes that include ranch, daylight and walkout lots designed for the buyer looking to right-size through intelligent design. Four builders have just broken ground on model homes that will be featured in next year’s Spring Parade of Homes – Koehler Building Company, Don Julian Builders, Cecil & Ray Custom Homes and Willis Construction.
Loch Lloyd has assembled what Chuck Campbell, director of real estate development, believes is the finest, most experienced builder team in Kansas City that also includes Evan-Talan Homes, Tom French Construction, C & M Builders, Forner-LaVoy Homes, RM Standard, Rodrock Custom Homes and Starr Homes.
“Our builders are focused on quality, on creating value for today’s discriminating homebuyer,” Campbell said.
He added the best way to see what the Loch Lloyd lifestyle is all about is to visit the community, just a five-minute drive from Leawood, and explore all that it offers.
“Leave the hectic world behind and embrace the healthy, active, yet peaceful resort lifestyle at Loch Lloyd,” he said. “Come out this weekend to tour our model homes — come see for yourself why Loch Lloyd is so special.”
