Visit the Village of Loch Lloyd this weekend for the Fall Parade of Homes. Visitors will be treated to two award-winning custom homes by two of Kansas City’s finest builders — Don Julian Builders, which won a First Place Distinctive Plan and Design Award, and Willis Custom Homes, which won Pick of the Parade Runner-Up. The Parade homes are open daily from 11a.m. to 5 p.m. through Sunday, Oct. 18.

In addition to the Parade entries, visitors will see firsthand what makes Loch Lloyd so special — the finest resort lifestyle inside a stunningly beautiful private, gated community in a low tax environment.

As one new resident put it, “We spent the last 25 years living for our children. When our last child left for college, we made a conscious decision that we’re going to embrace life, to live the next 25 years for us. We wanted more than just a new home. Loch Lloyd is the perfect lifestyle for the next phase of our life.”

Come see for yourself why so many are choosing to move to Loch Lloyd. The lifestyle inside the gates offers a wide array of resort-like amenities that entice residents to spend 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 Parade entry by Willis Construction is stunning in every way. This amazing home at 100 Dunhill Court 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.

Offered at $1.65 million, this reverse 1 1/2-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 interior of the featured home, designed 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 nickel 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 enhanced with decorative ironwork, 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 dinning 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 multi-tiered 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 each with its own private bath. The lower level walks out to a private outdoor courtyard surrounded by Loch Lloyd’s natural beauty.

Willis Custom Homes is a member of the Loch Lloyd builder team that also includes Evan-Talan Homes, Cecil & Ray Custom Homes, Forner-LaVoy Homes, Rick Standard, Koehler Building Company, Don Julian Builders, Starr Homes, Tom French Construction, C & M Builders and Rodrock Custom Homes.

“Take this opportunity to see what makes Loch Lloyd so special,” Campbell said. “Loch Lloyd is for the discriminating buyer that has long tired of the boring 50 shades of beige in random communities throughout the city. Visit today to see why so many living in Johnson County and Lee’s Summit have decided to immerse themselves in the Loch Lloyd lifestyle.”
