Drawn by captivating furnished model homes and the promise of a luxurious resort lifestyle, visitors to Loch Lloyd during this year’s Fall Parade of Homes set record traffic numbers.
“Never in the history of my career have I seen so much Parade traffic,” said Patrick Willis, president, Willis Custom Homes. “What’s happened at Loch Lloyd has just been incredible.”
Ashlea Black of Loch Lloyd’s marketing team attributed the Parade success to the incredible activity happening throughout Loch Lloyd, including a recent release of 65 new homesites and six new custom model homes. The new selection not only offers prospective homeowners exciting opportunities to make the Loch Lloyd lifestyle their own, but also contradicts the inaccurate assumption that the Loch Lloyd build-out is complete.
“One myth we’re working hard to dispel is the notion that Loch Lloyd is built out – that we’re finished,” said Chuck Campbell, president of the real estate development at Loch Lloyd. “Nothing could be further from the truth. Loch Lloyd is comprised of over 1,200 acres, and we still have some of our most spectacular land yet to develop.”

Guided by the vision of developer FiveStar Lifestyles, owned by Cerner Corporation co-founders Neal Patterson and Cliff Illig, the Village of Loch Lloyd has become a destination for discerning homeowners who covet luxury, crave relaxation and are eager to immerse themselves in a complete resort lifestyle experience. Considering Loch Lloyd is comprised of over 1,200 vast, beautiful acres – the best is yet to come.
Exemplary craftsmanship and thoughtfully designed floor plans are of highest importance at Loch Lloyd, which is why the community has assembled what Chuck Campbell said is the finest, most experienced builder team in Kansas City. Loch Lloyd builders include Koehler Building Company, Don Julian Builders, Cecil & Ray Custom Homes, Willis Custom Homes, Evan-Talan Homes, Forner-La Voy Homes, RM Standard, Rodrock Custom Homes and Starr Homes.
The impressive work by Loch Lloyd’s building team was not only noticed by the large number of Parade visitors during the last several weeks, but the Parade’s judging panel also took notice.
“We’re so proud that three of our models won top honors from the Home Builders Association for their Parade entries, including Willis Custom Homes – Grand Award winner, Pick of the Parade, and first place, Distinctive Plan & Design; Don Julian Builders – Grand Award winner for Pick of the Parade and first place, Distinctive Plan & Design; and Koehler Building Company – Grand Award winner, Pick of the Parade and first place, Distinctive Plan & Design,” Black said.
The new model homes remain open from noon to 5 p.m. this weekend for those interested in experiencing the Loch Lloyd lifestyle firsthand. Once you’ve toured the new model homes and are brimming with inspiration, team up with one of Loch Lloyd’s builders to create your own custom masterpiece on one of the community’s 65 new homesites, 14 of which are spectacular wooded acreage with the community’s highest building standards; 16 that overlook the seven-acre golf course lake with spectacular golf views beyond; 29 lots for those looking to right-size through intelligent design; and six extraordinary lakefront lots on the pristine 110-acre lake.
The impressive flexibility and focus on ensuring each homeowner has the best possible experience are part of the community’s emphasis on an exceptional lifestyle, and one of the many reasons that Loch Lloyd has become such a sought-after choice for so many homeowners. That lifestyle extends beyond Loch Lloyd’s enviable homes to the community’s heart and soul: The Country Club at Loch Lloyd. This is where the community comes together to enjoy recreation and relaxation with amenities that include a fully equipped fitness center, tennis courts, swimming pools and the community’s crown jewel: the Tom Watson Signature Design golf course.
Inside the clubhouse, residents gather at formal and informal dining venues for leisurely, conversation-laden meals. The sense of community is enhanced by events held throughout the year, including wine tastings, deck crawls and holiday celebrations.
All that Loch Lloyd has to offer is thanks to the vision of the developer, FiveStar Lifestyles. Illig and Patterson remain committed to the success of Loch Lloyd, working tirelessly with the community’s renowned builders and architects to bring the dream of creating Kansas City’s finest resort lifestyle community into reality.
“We believe in Loch Lloyd so much and what it has to offer, including the stability of the ownership and the development team,” Willis said. “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. If you haven’t seen Loch Lloyd recently, you have to visit this weekend. It’s extraordinary.”
