The Village of Loch Lloyd is a private gated community in the suburbs of Kansas City highlighted by an unparalleled resort-like lifestyle and Kansas City’s lowest property taxes. While Loch Lloyd is a development for everyone, its newest phase is particularly attractive for empty nesters.
Located on a wooded cul-de-sac overlooking a picturesque pond, 18 villas comprise this maintenance provided enclave in the community—The Cove. Twelve of the homesites overlook the water and four offer wooded views, with lot sizes ranging from approximately an eighth to a half acre. The neighborhood currently has two models and several private residences in progress with wooded and waterfront homesites still available.
Homes are priced from $700,000 to $900,000 with 18 different exterior elevations—no two homes will look the same in keeping with Loch Lloyd’s standards. Floor plans range from 2,800 to 3,300 square feet and the model home floor plans all offer a selection of 3 interior finish levels; at least three bedrooms and bathrooms; and up to three-car garages that have the option of being side-entry. They are all designed for first-floor living with the master bedroom and a flex room on the main floor, along with an open design that flows from the entry to the kitchen, dining or breakfast room and to the welcoming great room. The lower level features an entertainment room, bar and two to three additional bedrooms with bathrooms. All of the plans offer sun patios or covered lanais featuring a fireplace and media capacity to enjoy the serene setting.
The unique villas in The Cove are situated on large homesites, much larger than typically found in maintenance-provided communities. Several of the home sites are designed to accommodate full walkout lower levels while others lend themselves to single-level or story and a half—there is a home custom designed for every lot based on the topography.
“Offering multiple styles and finishes, these villas are anything but ‘cookie-cutter,’” said Ashlea Black, Director of Real Estate Sales & Marketing for Loch Lloyd. “With exterior elements of stacked stone, stucco, brick and concrete tile roofs, the villas are exceptional and have been designed exclusively for this enclave.”
“The Cove is a continuation of the master plan for the community and is due to the unwavering vision of the developers, Cliff Illig and the Patterson Family Trust,” Black added. “Their commitment to providing options for residents at every stage of life is evident with this newer neighborhood. The National Home Building Company has established itself as a leader in home building at our sister property, The National, and will be the dedicated builder for this part of the community.” Build time in The Cove is approximately a year.
The combined $400 monthly homeowners’ association and neighborhood fee provides “lock-and-leave” living and will include spring clean-up of the entire villa yard annually, lawn mowing and edging, irrigation sprinklers with winterization each fall, annual flowers planted twice a year and cut-back of perennial flowers once a year, maintenance of all flower beds, flower bed and tree mulch application annually, flower-bed weeding and shrub pruning, lawn fertilization and weed control, fall clean up annually, and snow and ice removal from driveways and walkways. Curbside trash and recycling pickup, common area maintenance, an off-leash dog park and children’s park, walking trails, and security is also included in the monthly fee.
Residents of this idyllic neighborhood will have access to the south marina and lakeside walking trail moments from their front door. The lake at Loch Lloyd is 110 acres, approximately 40 feet at its deepest point and over a mile long. Skulls, kayaks and pontoon boats dot the lake throughout warmer months and a “no wake” policy provides a peaceful experience for all. Fishing is also enjoyed in this spring-fed lake where a variety of wildlife can also be viewed.
The Cove is located approximately two minutes from the heart of community—The Country Club at Loch Lloyd, where residents come together to enjoy all the venues that encourage healthy lifestyles, such as the fully equipped fitness center, tennis courts and swimming pools, and the Tom Watson Signature Design golf course. The resort-like lifestyle and strong sense of community is never more present than in the clubhouse, which offers formal and informal dining venues, bars, decks and patios with exceptional food provided by the award-winning culinary staff.
While touring The Cove, prospective buyers will also have a chance to learn more about an exciting new addition to Loch Lloyd: a new gated entrance on the north end of the property near the Kansas state line.
“We are excited to offer this convenient connection between Loch Lloyd and neighboring Leawood and Overland Park,” Black said. “It offers easier access to the community for many of our residents and guests, and overall saves traveling time.”
Black continued, “The new gate provides our community additional access to all of the shopping, dining and entertainment options along 135th Street and other nearby destinations along 119th and 151st streets. We’re also pleased to be mere minutes from the new Saint Luke’s Community Hospital at 133rd Street and State Line Road that offers 24-hour health care.”
The development of The Cove, the continued expansion on the north end of the community and the opening of a new north gate are evidence of Loch Lloyd’s continued growth and status as Kansas City’s finest private gated community.
