Visit the Village of Loch Lloyd this weekend to see the spectacular entry on the Artisan Home Tour. Stunning in every way, this amazing home at 100 Dunhill Court, built by Willis Custom Homes, has a commanding hillside view from the end of a cul-de-sac. The exquisite landscaping highlighting the entrance invites visitors to the understated elegance inside.
This $1.65 million reverse 11/2-story plan is ideal for entertaining and family living, offering five bedrooms, five full bathrooms and a four-plus-car garage with 6,000 square feet of living space in an open thoughtful design.
The home is one of 10 on the Artisan Home tour, presented by The Home Builders Association of Greater Kansas City (HBA) and sponsored by Ferguson Bath, Kitchen & Lighting Gallery. The inaugural Artisan Home Tour, which began Saturday and continues through Sept. 20, offers the general public a unique opportunity to experience homes built by Kansas City’s finest custom home builders, each highlighting a wealth of impeccable interior and exterior design, craftsmanship, state-of-the-art building processes and specialty products.
This is also an excellent opportunity to experience the resort lifestyle at Loch Lloyd, which offers an array of resort-like amenities that entice residents to spend more time outside pursuing healthy activities. At its center 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.
The interior of the featured home, with interior design by Janet Alholm, includes subtle shades of off-white and pale gray, contrasted with the dark hardwood floors and touches of black. Mirrored surfaces throughout the home on walls and cabinetry reflect the light from a variety of contemporary brushed nickle chandeliers and fixtures.
The entry leads to the dining area designed with entertaining in mind, flanked on one side by a full-service bar and the other by the kitchen with crisp white cabinets and a six-burner gas cook top in the island. Follow a hallway from the kitchen past an office on the left to a butler’s pantry on the right with a full sink, second dishwasher and large walk-in pantry.
The office has arched openings in the wall to house decorative iron work and sheer fabric screens, providing separation from hall traffic without breaking connection to the open design. Just beyond, at the garage entrance, is a large mudroom with its own full bath, perfect for cleaning up after working in the garden.
Return down the hallway to the dining room and step beyond it to the cosmopolitan-inspired great room with a limestone fireplace and bowed window bay that overlooks the treed back yard. One side of the great room opens to a four-season room with yet another fireplace. Two 16-foot sliding glass walls integrate the four-season room with the outdoors and lead to a multitiered flagstone patio with seat walls, an outdoor kitchen and fire pit.
The main-floor master suite offers views of the private back yard. It features a spa master bath with glass-enclosed shower, separate vanities with granite tops and a free-standing tub below a 50-inch flat screen TV and mirrored walls. The master closet has a a large island-style dresser with mirrored top, California-closet adjustable shelves, a stacked washer and dryer and built-in ironing board.
From the master bedroom, circle back to the entry to the solid concrete, curved staircase illuminated by LED tape lights leading to the incredible lower level. Here you will find a custom bar, wine room with built-in cabinets and wine chiller, a home theater room, billiard room, exercise room with mirrored walls, and three bedrooms with en suite baths. The lower level walks out to a private outdoor courtyard surrounded by Loch Lloyd’s natural beauty.
Whatever room you’re visiting, be sure to look up to see an array of ceiling treatments with wood accents and look down to discover a variety of hardwood and tile floors, all blending seamlessly with the home’s decor.
