Ask any Loch Lloyd resident 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 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, 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 equipped fitness center, tennis courts and swimming pools. The club also offers formal and informal dining venues provided by the award-winning culinary staff.

Visit Loch Lloyd today from noon to 5 p.m. to see for yourself what it feels like to drive through the gates. While you’re there, tour the home by the award-winning Koehler Building Company.
This beautiful custom reverse plan —The Georgetown designed by architect Patric Tierney — is nestled into a private setting, which Koehler said is one of its best features. It backs to a secluded wooded area affording absolute privacy and is designed to take full advantage of its location. This home features spectacular outdoor living space with two lanais. The lanai off the kitchen is a second living room highlighted by a fireplace with a TV above it and an outdoor kitchen with built-in outdoor grill. The second lanai is off the lower level offering beautiful views of the woods behind the house.
Designed to maximize main-floor living, Koehler’s new home boasts an open floor plan that is perfect for entertaining and perfect for the active empty-nester or families with older children. The centerpiece is a 17-foot tall stone fireplace in the hearth room, which also has wooden beams accenting the vaulted ceiling. The beamed, vaulted ceiling is repeated in the kitchen that has custom cabinetry, granite counters and an island. The rustic touches continue with hickory hardwood floors.
The luxurious master suite on the main level features an expansive bathroom and master closet, along with a stacked washer and dryer. On the opposite side of the house is another main-floor bedroom that is perfect for buyers who need an office. The third and fourth bedrooms are on the lower level.
The beautiful stone front elevation of this home has a classic old world feel, in keeping with Loch Lloyd’s Scottish heritage and resort-like ambiance.
Ask Koehler why he chose to build at Loch Lloyd and he will tell you it’s two things: the resort lifestyle and the vision and financial strength of the developer, FiveStar Lifestyles, led by Neal Patterson and Cliff Illig, the founders of the Cerner Corporation.
Not a golfer? Don’t worry – 50 percent of the residents at Loch Lloyd don’t play golf. They are drawn to Loch Lloyd by the resort lifestyle, the security afforded by the gates and the healthy lifestyle.
The security afforded by this gated community gives residents a peace of mind, eliminating traffic concerns. In fact, the popular mode of travel is golf carts which are allowed everywhere inside the gates.
This idyllic lifestyle feels like it is hours from hectic city life but is actually only a few minutes from shopping and dining in Leawood and highway access.
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.
Loch Lloyd has assembled what the developers believe is the finest, most experienced builder team in Kansas City and includes Willis Construction, Don Julian Homes, C & M Builders, Evan-Talan Homes, Cecil & Ray Custom Homes, Forner-LaVoy Homes, Rick Standard, Tom French Construction and the Koehler Building Company.
“Visit Loch Lloyd this weekend to tour the award-winning Georgetown plan by Brian Koehler, as well as several existing homes that will also be open for viewing,” said Campbell. “Come see for yourself what it feels like to be on vacation 365 days a year.”
