The Willis Custom Homes team has been building in the Village of Loch Lloyd for 20 years, a span of time that’s given Patrick Willis, president of Willis Custom Homes, a chance to see the acclaimed lifestyle community continue its remarkable evolution.
“We build all over the metro, but there’s no other place we build that has the feel of Loch Lloyd,” said Willis, a second-generation builder at the company founded 50 years ago by his father, Bob Willis. “It’s a true resort community with the lakes and wooded hills—it’s just stepping into a whole other world when you’re out there.”
As the Spring Parade of Homes continues its second weekend, now is the ideal time to explore all that Loch Lloyd has to offer, including a newly finished masterpiece by Willis Custom Homes. Tucked away on a prime location—a wooded cul-de-sac homesite that’s one of the largest in the community—awaits a show-stopping four-bedroom, 5 ½-bathroom home that’s designed to immerse the homeowner in Loch Lloyd’s natural beauty.
“In the back of the home, we carved out the hill and created a water feature with a multi-level flagstone patio with a fire pit, waterfall and outdoor kitchen,” said Willis. “Behind the outdoor area, the entire backdrop is solid woods, which creates a beautiful view.”

Making the most of the home’s incredible scenery is a theme that’s carried to the interior, too. In one particular room, the outdoors is much more than a window view.
“The sunroom is something that everyone goes crazy over,” Willis said. “You can access it from different parts of the house and it includes 50 feet of glass walls that open directly to the outside. It’s a neat transition point between the indoors and the outdoors.”
To discover one of the most unexpected features of the home, make a trip to the master suite’s walk-in closet. The size alone is impressive; add to that a wealth of built-ins and shelving, a crystal chandelier and a beverage center and you have an unexpected haven cocooned within the master suite.
The Village of Loch Lloyd was carefully designed to help residents get the most out of their busy and active lifestyles, and this Willis Custom Homes floor plan is no exception. You’ve heard the phrase, “designed for entertaining,” but Willis said this home perfectly fits that description.
“It’s a very wide open floor plan that has a catering kitchen off of the main kitchen,” he said. “In addition to a big dining buffet and open eating area, it has a catering bar—a full wet bar—nearby that then flows into the sunroom.”
Outside this majestic home awaits the splendor of Loch Lloyd, including the community’s heart and soul: 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.
The Spring Parade of Homes is an ideal time to experience the Loch Lloyd lifestyle and to secure your dream home. For prospective buyers interested in working with Willis Custom Homes on their own residential masterpiece, 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. In addition to the Willis Custom Homes model home at 100 Dunhill Court, three other builders have new models under construction: Koehler Building Company, Don Julian Builders and Cecil & Ray Homes.
“Our builders focus on quality—on creating value for today’s discriminating home buyer,” 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.”
And for the Willis Custom Homes team, that commitment to each resident’s experience makes Loch Lloyd an unmatched new home opportunity.
