The Artisan Home Tour of Greater Kansas City is a bi-annual fundraising event benefiting the Ronald McDonald House Charities of Kansas City and features some of Kansas City’s finest custom homebuilders showcasing their design and craftsmanship. Starr Homes’ 2018 Artisan Home overlooks a peaceful pond by the Tom Watson Signature Course and offers breathtaking views from every room of this reverse 1½-story home featuring four bedrooms, four full and three half-bathrooms, a 5-car garage and Starr Homes’ signature energy-efficient design. This 7,000+ square foot home with modern clean lines effortlessly flows from indoor to outdoor living spaces and compliments the serene, natural setting within the Village of Loch Lloyd.
The soaring two-story, light-filled foyer leads to a sprawling hearth and dining room focused around the kitchen. The adjoining butler’s pantry and separate walk-in pantry provide ample space for prep and storage, while the nearby walk-up bar is ideally located when entertaining guests on the first floor.
The luxe first-floor master suite includes a marble framed fireplace; a coffee bar conveniently placed by an impressive closet offering plentiful storage; and a sleek, spacious bathroom. The second first-floor bedroom has its own private exterior access, and the home office is enclosed by floor-to-ceiling glass walls. The four-seasons room will welcome family and friends to relax and the adjoining spacious lanai complete with grilling station, TV and elongated fire table with waterfront golf course views invite outdoor living throughout the year.
The lower level offers two additional guest rooms with walk-in closets and en suite bathrooms. Entertainment options are available for everyone — from a massive media room with billiards and a full bar to a golf simulator room and exercise room. A focal point of the space is the walk-in wine cellar with glass walls and floating bottle storage. The lower level covered lanai provides another place to enjoy the picture perfect surroundings.
Starr Homes is hosting an Artisan Homes Tour kick-off party on Friday, June 8, from 4 to 9 p.m. with live music, cocktails and hors d’oeuvres at their entry home in the scenic Village of Loch Lloyd.

While visiting the Artisan Tour entry, 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 award-winning Spring Parade of Homes entries; and five additional new models by Don Julian Builders, Cecil & Ray Homes, Koehler Building Company, Rodrock Custom Homes and Starr Homes, which are underway for 2019. Visit Loch Lloyd during the 2018 Artisan Tour to experience this extraordinary community!
