Visit the Village of Loch Lloyd this weekend to tour the award-winning model home by Willis Custom Homes, which was featured in the prestigious Artisan Homes Tour last fall.
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 with a wide array of resort amenities that entice residents to spend more time outside pursuing healthy activities.
Designed by renowned architect Scott Bickford, this stunning custom home located at 100 Dunhill Court fits perfectly into the Loch Lloyd lifestyle. Offered at $1.65 million, this reverse 1 1/2-story plan offers five bedrooms, five full bathrooms and an oversized four-car garage with 6,000 square feet of living space in an open, thoughtful design.
“It’s an impressive custom home on a large cul-de-sac at the top of a hill offering breathtaking views that can be enjoyed from every room of the house, as well as the outdoor courtyard and patio,” said Ashlea Finn, an agent with Loch Lloyd Real Estate. “It’s designed for ease of living and entertaining with one space flowing into another.”
One of the many impressive features is the four-season room. “It’s adjacent to the kitchen and great room providing an ideal space for entertaining,” Finn said. “Open the sliding the glass walls to enjoy warm weather and you can easily step out to the two-level lanai with a fire pit, pergola and grilling kitchen. Close the walls in the winter and cozy up to the fireplace. Imagine watching snow fall through the glass walls while staying warm inside.”
The interior, designed by Janet Alholm, includes subtle shades of white and 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 fabric and 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 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 the four-season room.
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 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.
