Summerlin selling a lifestyle

The master-planned community of Summerlin is selling new homes in four villages by nine builders. Las Vegas homebuyers can chose from among 55 floor plans and a variety of amenities offered in each home, including single-story homes, one penthouse condominium, dual master suites, three-car garages and accordion-style doors that fold away to connect indoor living rooms with backyard lounge space.

And then there’s the Summerlin lifestyle.

“I have lived in Summerlin since 2000,” said Chris Haas, who has purchased three homes in Summerlin. “It is a great area for families and friends. Given the growth of restaurants and bars in the area, there is really no need to leave.”

The clean, carefully designed and landscaped streets lined with wide sidewalks are just some of the differences visible when driving through Summerlin. The community is home to more than 150 parks, nine golf courses, three community centers, private neighborhood pools and more than 150 miles of interconnected trails.

The 22,500-acre community offers residents a wealth of amenities, with everyday living conveniences such as grocery stores, dry cleaners, houses of worship and restaurants.

“It has the best view of the Las Vegas Valley, by far,” said Victor Kolyszko. “Quiet, clean, great schools, green areas and family friendly,” Marian Tapia-Menchaca added.

New neighborhoods selling in The Mesa and Paseos villages are by KB Home, Lennar, Pulte Homes, Ryland, Richmond American Homes, Toll Brothers and Woodside Homes. They feature unusual architectural themes with upgraded amenities and the latest construction standards with built-in technology.

A variety of floor plans for both one- and two-story homes are priced from the low $300,000s to the mid $500,000s. Some of these new neighborhoods are enhanced by Summerlin’s newest amenity: a shared grand entrance that features a grand driveway flanked by linear park space accented with landscaping and broad, lush medians.

“Summerlin has lived up to the promises it made when we moved in 21 years ago,” resident Susan Burke said. “My family continues to live, work and play in the greatest master-planned community ever.”
