The art of rightsizing

“Each home is designed to maximize the buyer’s lifestyle – to enhance their enjoyment of their new life at Loch Lloyd,” said Chuck Campbell, broker and vice president of real estate development at Loch Lloyd.
“Each home is designed to maximize the buyer’s lifestyle – to enhance their enjoyment of their new life at Loch Lloyd,” said Chuck Campbell, broker and vice president of real estate development at Loch Lloyd.

While “downsizing” has become today’s buzz word for homebuyers, it poorly describes the true desire of today’s home buyer at the Village of Loch Lloyd.

“Right-sizing thru intelligent design more accurately describes the true desire of today’s homebuyer,” said Chuck Campbell, broker and vice president of real estate development at Loch Lloyd. “Today’s active empty-nester wants a smarter, lower maintenance home without sacrificing quality.”

“Right-sizing is the art of eliminating rarely used space like the formal living and dining rooms, while enhancing the quality and livability of the four key areas of the home—the kitchen, great room, master suite and the outdoor living space,” Campbell continued. “In terms of livability and quality of life, the difference between rightsizing and downsizing is dramatic.”

Outdoor living space is more important than ever, designed to be used nine months out of the year—if not all 12 months. It’s sophisticated, yet comfortable—more like an outdoor living room with a fireplace, TV, sound system, outdoor kitchen and often times a bar.

Loch Lloyd just released 29 spectacular lots overlooking the sixth and seventh golf holes of the Tom Watson Signature Design golf course designed for the buyer looking to right-size through intelligent design. Four builders have just broken ground on model homes that will be featured in the Spring Parade of Homes—Koehler Building Company, Don Julian Builders, Cecil & Ray Custom Homes and Willis Construction.

Intelligent design is particularly attractive to empty-nesters and families with older children who want a home that emphasizes main-level living with ranch or reverse 1 ½-story designs that take advantage of Loch Lloyd’s rolling topography.

Visit Loch Lloyd this weekend to see for yourself why so many are choosing to move to Loch Lloyd. The moment residents’ drive through the gates their lives change. They leave the hectic world behind and enter a vibrant, resort-like environment where they immerse themselves in the active, healthy lifestyle that is the essence of Loch Lloyd.

The heart and soul of Loch Lloyd is The Country Club at Loch Lloyd, where the community comes 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 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.

Loch Lloyd residents enjoy a multitude of activities that inspire a strong sense of community, such as the popular Home & Garden Club, summer programs for children and a vibrant social fabric with events like wine tastings, deck crawls and festive celebrations of the major holidays throughout the year. It is that total Loch Lloyd experience that draws new residents and keeps existing residents for a lifetime.

As one new resident put it, “Like most of our friends, 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. Loch Lloyd is the perfect lifestyle for us for the next phase of our life.”

All of it is provided thanks to the vision of the developer—FiveStar Lifestyles—owned by Neal Patterson and Cliff Illig, the co-founders of Cerner Corporation.

“Loch Lloyd is the most successful development in Kansas City thanks to the vision and financial strength of the developer,” Campbell said. “Buyers invest in Loch Lloyd because they have confidence in Mr. Patterson and Mr. Illig.

Loch Lloyd has assembled what they believe is the finest, most experienced builder team in Kansas City and includes: Don Julian Homes, Tom French Construction, C & M Builders, Evan-Talan Homes, Cecil & Ray Custom Homes, Forner-LaVoy Homes, RM Standard, Rodrock Custom Homes, Starr Homes, Willis Construction and the Koehler Building Company.

“Our builders focus on quality—on creating value for today’s discriminating home buyer,” Campbell said. “Each home is designed to maximize the buyer’s lifestyle—to enhance their enjoyment of their new life at Loch Lloyd.”

“Come out this weekend to tour our models including the intelligently designed reverse 1 ½ by C&M Builders offered at $774,900,” Campbell continued. “While you’re here, ask about the last two lake lots overlooking the pristine 110 acre lake. They are remarkable, and they are the last two lots ever to be developed on the lake!”
