It’s been said the key to happiness is living in the place you want to live, surrounded by the people whose company you enjoy, doing the things you truly want to do. That in one sentence sums up why community matters, why so many buyers are choosing to move to the Village of Loch Lloyd.

Ask any of Loch Lloyd’s residents what their favorite part of the day is and the universal response will be, “When I drive through the gates at the end of the day.” Ask them to expand further, and they will tell you the moment they drive through the gates, their lives change. They leave the hectic world behind and enter a serene environment surrounded by their friends and world class amenities that promote happy, healthy living.

The lifestyle at Loch Lloyd offers its residents a wide array of resort-like activities in an environment that once you enter, time slows down. There is more time to spend with family and friends, for playing golf or tennis, catching a fish, taking a yoga class, getting a massage, throwing a party, dining at the clubhouse with people you enjoy and making lifelong memories. It is a lifestyle that reinvigorates the senses, yet simplifies life — a lifestyle that allows you to make the most of each day and enjoy every moment.

At the center of the resort lifestyle is The Country Club at Loch Lloyd, where members play golf on the acclaimed Tom Watson Signature Design and enjoy all the venues that encourage healthy lifestyles, such as the fully staffed fitness center, tennis courts and swimming pools. The club offers formal and informal dining venues provided by the award-winning culinary staff and all menu items can be ordered for carry-out.

Loch Lloyd residents and members enjoy a multitude of activities that foster a strong sense of community, such as the 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.

The security of gives residents peace of mind, eliminating traffic concerns. In fact, the popular mode of travel is golf carts which are allowed everywhere inside the gates.

Today’s discriminating homebuyer wants an intelligently designed home that complements the way they live; a lower maintenance home that allows them to enjoy life.

“Right-sizing through intelligent design describes the true desires of today’s homebuyer at Loch Lloyd,” said Chuck Campbell, director of marketing for FiveStar Lifestyles. “Today’s buyer wants a smarter, lower-maintenance home without sacrificing quality.

“Right-sizing is the art of eliminating unused peripheral space like the formal living room and the formal dining room, while enhancing the quality and livability of the three key areas of the home that buyers most use — the kitchen, great room and the master suite. In terms of livability and quality of life, the difference between the two is dramatic.
