Pardee to hold grand opening

Pardee Homes is returning to the master-planned community it has developed over the past two decades with its grand opening today of LivingSmart Homes Eldorado Ridge, which marks the first gated community in Eldorado in North Las Vegas.

Grand opening activities include gourmet refreshments, cooking demonstrations and activities for children 11 a.m.-3 p.m. today.

LivingSmart Homes Eldorado Ridge is a collection of four floor plans that range in size from 1,850 to 2,986 square feet. The one- and two-story plans include such features as great and bonus rooms, as many as seven bedrooms and a unique outdoor room option. Prices are anticipated to start from the low $200,000s.

The neighborhood is within the Eldorado master-planned community and can be accessed from the Las Vegas Beltway at Aliante Parkway. Exit the 215 at Aliante Parkway and travel south. Turn left on Deer Springs Road and travel east to Gentle Brook Street. The neighborhood is on the southeast corner of Deer Springs and Gentle Brook Street.

"Pardee Homes opened its first neighborhood in Eldorado in April 1990 and 22 years later we are excited to again offer new homes in Eldorado with our collection of LivingSmart Homes in what will be the first gated community in Eldorado," said Rob Tuvell, the company's regional sales director.
