Two Unique New Construction Homes Feature Milgard Windows

by Joann Whetstine

For the Artisan Home Tour of Kansas City, Starr Homes, LLC designed two homes, each with their own distinctive style and character. The tour was a showcase of new construction homes developed by Kansas City’s finest custom homebuilders who were invited to display their unique and impeccable qualities in finer homebuilding. From initial concept to finish, these stunning homes were in the works for nearly two years resulting in one-of-a-kind properties any homeowner would be pleased to call their own.

The Village of Loch Lloyd

The reverse 1.5 story home located in The Village of Loch Lloyd was thoughtfully designed around the serenity of the lot and community. The 7,000+ square foot home was designed with modern, clean lines to focus on the stunning exterior surroundings. The front elevation and two-story foyer uses a contemporary window design that draws a ton of natural light in the long corridor leading to the covered lanai in the rear overlooking a pond.

Milgard®Aluminum Series windows were selected for Loch Lloyd, to convey a timeless, contemporary look, and deliver strength and durability. Along with other details such as large sliding doors and floor-to-ceiling windows in the dining room, it is clear this home was designed to merge indoor/outdoor living.

Sundance Ridge

Sundance Ridge was a cozy 1.5 story home inspired by simplified forms and geometric shapes to reflect an art deco revival design. This vision was well accomplished on the exterior which featured a dark bronze frame color.

Milgard® Style Line® Series vinyl windows were selected for their slim frame which allowed for more natural light to enter the home. There were also a variety of window shapes selected for visual interest.

This home looks amazing!

Windows on Sundance ridge project

Just double checking to see that the windows used on the Sundance ridge home are bronze exterior? What is the interior color? Is that bronze as well?


The exterior is Bronze from the factory. The builder painted the interior frames themselves with a black color to match. Milgard does not offer a black interior for vinyl windows. This look can be achieved with our Ultra Series fiberglass windows.
