The Irons features single-story homes

With some of the best pricing in Rhodes Ranch, The Irons has carved a niche as one of the best values for single-story homes in southwestern Las Vegas, said Ryan Soucie, director of sales for Rhodes Homes.

The neighborhood opened for sales last fall and features three single-story floor plans with incentives and free options offered on many of the homes.

Two floor plans are shown as models -- Residence 1467 and Residence 1611, named for their respective square footage. Rhodes Homes chose to show the models decorated but not furnished, allowing prospective residents to envision their own furnishings in each home, he said.

"For some it is easy to see past the designer's vision for model homes, but for others it is easier to see the homes without furnishings," Soucie said. "At The Irons, we allow you to see the spaces as they really are and envision your own decorating style."

The Irons is Rhodes Ranch's first completely single-story neighborhood.

Residence 1467 includes three bedrooms, two baths and a great room.

Residence 1611 features four bedrooms, two baths, a great room and a walk-in closet in the third bedroom.

Residence 1931, which is not modeled, includes three bedrooms, two baths, living room, family room and two walk-in closets in the master bedroom. All three homes are offered with media niches and two-car garages.

"Single-story homes are very popular because they create an open feeling with taller ceilings and eliminate any trouble for those who can't climb stairs," Soucie said. "We have highlighted this open feeling at The Irons with vaulted ceilings, which create an especially dramatic effect. I invite home shoppers to visit our models to see for themselves how vaulted ceilings up to about 15 feet in the great rooms and master baths can add to the character of our homes."

Home prices at The Irons start in the high $200,000s.

"There is no other community in southwest Las Vegas that offers so much for such a reasonable price," Soucie said. "Not only do residents of The Irons have access to the award-winning Rhodes Ranch Golf Club, but they also have miles of walking paths, playgrounds, an incredible community center and one of the best water parks in the city right outside their front doors every day."

As residents of the Rhodes Ranch master plan, The Irons homeowners have access to the 35,000-square-foot R Club recreation center.

The community's Fun Zone Water Park opened last year and features eight water slides as well as a 13,000-square-foot lagoon pool.

Standard features with all homes in The Irons include finished garages, ceiling fan prewiring in all bedrooms and common rooms, decorative 61/2-inch baseboards, rocker switches in all rooms and phone and cable outlets in all bedrooms and common rooms.

The kitchens include a food-preparation island in Residence 1931, beech cabinetry with crown molding, recessed lighting, pantries and breakfast nooks.

The Rhodes Ranch Golf Club was designed by architect Ted Robinson. The par-72 course was named a Best Value by Vegas Golfer magazine and envelops players in its lush tropical surroundings.

Rhodes Homes has built more than 6,000 homes in the Las Vegas Valley during the past two decades and is now developing 16 neighborhoods throughout the city.

To visit The Irons at Rhodes Ranch, take Interstate 215, the Las Vegas Beltway, to Durango Drive, and then go south to Rhodes Ranch Parkway.

The sales office is open from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. daily.
