As a real estate agent for more than 20 years, Rose Falocco is well-versed in the many things that one should consider when purchasing a new home such as home design, construction methods and location.
She took these considerations to heart as she searched for a home of her own. Her home search ended upon entering the gated entrance of Bella Fiore, a Harmony Homes neighborhood located within the Lake Las Vegas master-planned community.
"I view homes on a daily basis and am aware of the many builders, neighborhoods and communities as a real estate agent. For my own home, I chose Bella Fiore in particular because of its location within the beautiful resort community of Lake Las Vegas and because I love the product that Harmony builds," explained Falocco, who works with Realty One Group.
"Lake Las Vegas has a lot to offer and to me, it is like the jewel of the desert. Even though it's a part of Henderson, it does not seem to be like a part of the city. The community feels more like a village in Tuscany with the quiet, the mountains, a golf course and the lake," she said. "It's very community-oriented and family-oriented and there is a lot to do in the nearby MonteLago Village. I love the community and it is just gorgeous."
The 3,600-acre master-planned community's Tuscan and Spanish style is incorporated into Bella Fiore and its three home designs.
Falocco selected Residence 2,307 at the gated neighborhood. The 2,307-square-foot design includes three bedrooms, 2½ baths and three-car tandem garage. A myriad of design options are available, of which Falocco opted for a fourth bedroom in lieu of the third bay in the garage and a covered patio.
"I love my home because it is such a functional floor plan with a very open, welcoming design. My home has a great 'flow' to it and it flows very well from the great room to the kitchen and dining room, which is great for entertaining," she said.
"My favorite part of my home is its location itself. I would have to say my home's location next to a golf course is absolutely to die for with views of the mountains, golf course and palm trees from my backyard and at night the views of the twinkling lights of MonteLago Village in the distance."
Two additional floor plans are available. The single-story Residence 2593 features three bedrooms and 2½ baths, while a two-story design offers four bedrooms and 3½ baths in 3,959 square feet. Home sites range from 7,000 to 12,000 square feet.
Each home offers a three-car tandem garage and design options allow for flexible use of space with additional bedrooms, den and customized living spaces. Among the homes' features are granite kitchen countertops with gourmet islands, 10-foot ceilings, 6-inch baseboards, low-e windows, and paver-stone driveways and sidewalks.
Prices start from $298,990.
Through Thursday, the builder is offering incentives valued at $20,000 with each home purchase at Bella Fiore. The incentive credit may be used for upgrades, structural options, closing costs, the buy-down interest rates, or lot premiums, according to company officials.
"I think that Harmony Homes builds a very good, solid home and the service and sales people are great. At Bella Fiore, I have found a great home and a great value for today's market in Lake Las Vegas," she said.
To visit Bella Fiore, take U.S. Highway 93 south to Lake Mead Drive and head east toward Lake Mead. Turn left onto Lake Las Vegas Parkway, proceed through a roundabout and follow the signs. Model homes are open daily from 10 a.m.-6 p.m., except Monday when they open at noon.
