(Beloit, WI) Hillary Gavan, Beloit Daily News

Homes with European-style architecture and situated in the rolling hills along Riverside Drive are coming to Beloit.

L2W Developers of Beloit, founded in 2003, will break ground soon on the Country Club Heights property at 2271 Riverside Drive adjacent to The Beloit Club, the rebuilt successor to the Country Club of Beloit. The club was acquired by Diane Hendricks and is undergoing a complete makeover.

The luxury condominium site will be located on 2.4 acres along the tenth tee of The Beloit Club’s golf course, according to L2W Developers President Jeffrey W. Losinske and his partner Charles M. Losinske.

“The upscale development will offer the Stateline Area a new option. Its maintenance-free living is ideal for young professionals to snowbirds. The home features energy efficient and modern amenities, stunning and unique architecture with a scenic view overlooking the golf course,” Jeffrey Losinske said.

When L2W developers purchased the land in 2003, they felt it would be a great marriage between their development and the former Country Club of Beloit in order to grow club membership. In 2014, as the economy picked up, they are hoping to offer buyers the opportunity to live in these “storybook cottages.”

Described as “Irish-style estates,” the dwellings feature a stone facade with a curved turret-style room.

Jeffrey Losinske said he was always intrigued by the design of stone cottages on the “links,” or golf courses, in Ireland. After visiting the American Club in Kohler, Wis., and seeing similar architecture to those on the links, he decided to bring old-world architecture with more eco-friendly and energy efficient construction to Beloit.

He said the location next to The Beloit Club is ideal for empty nesters to young professionals who can be in close proximity to The Beloit Club’s golfing, tennis and swimming.

“Condominium residents will be close to activities and amenities in downtown Beloit while having a natural retreat to come home to,” Charles Losinske said.

Jeffrey Losinske noted that any trees taken down during construction will be re-purposed and used as custom millwork inside the units as there is an abundance of mature walnut. Outside the homes, there will be professionally designed and maintained landscaping.

The site will feature 12 units available in six duplexes. Units range in size from one to three bedrooms, and are 2,000-2,500 square feet.

The majority of condominiums are lower level walk-out units which could be finished with in-law suites or made to be ADA compliant. Units can also be customized to include gourmet kitchens, spa-like bathrooms or sun rooms.

“Our goal was to keep people from leaving to the Villas of Oakfield in South Beloit, Bello Reserve in Rockford and condominiums on the Red Barn Golf Course in Rockton to stay in their own home community,” Jeffrey Losinske said.

Once ground breaks L2W is going to use as many local subcontractors as possible, and predicts about 50 workers will be laboring on site during construction.

Jeffrey Losinske has owned Custom Design Cabinetry and Construction (CDC) in South Beloit since 1988. CDC has built single and multi-family customized homes throughout the Stateline Area.

Jeffrey Losinske has built upon his family history in construction and his passion for innovative design to make CDC an award winner.

Custom Design Construction, for example, has won a total of 15 Industry Cutting Edge (ICE) awards from the Home Builders Association of Rockford.

In millwork Custom Design Cabinetry won two top Wisconsin Project awards through “Wisconsin Builder” magazine for its work on Kerry Ingredients and the Beloit Public Library in 2009.
