Ryland communities put emphasis on amenities

From North Las Vegas to Henderson, Ryland Homes knows that there is more to life than a fabulous home. The builder, which recently received an Energy Star award for its commitment to energy efficient homes, is also committed to providing residents with amenities that allow them to enjoy fun and fitness with their families.

“Our lives are centered around the home, but the right amenities can make it even better,” said Ray Abraham, sales counselor at Ryland’s Verada View neighborhood in the Providence master plan. “Not only are Ryland neighborhoods located near fabulous community amenities, but most also offer their own just for Ryland Homes’ residents.”

This weekend, Verada View celebrates the grand opening of its neighborhood pool and heated spa.

“Most neighborhoods in Providence are not gated and don’t have any of their own amenities, so Verada View’s amenities are very exclusive,” he said.

Verada View is joined by Ryland’s Monticello neighborhood in Providence, which includes a pool and tot lot.

Residents of both neighborhoods are a short distance from a 15-acre park and many scenic walking trails in Providence. Knickerbocker Park includes age-specific play areas for 2- to 5-year-olds and 5- to 12-year-olds, a swing set, dog park with small and large dog areas, splash pad, youth baseball field, a multiuse events field, a jogging path with exercise stations and picnic areas.

Across the valley in southwest Las Vegas, Ryland Homes is building three neighborhoods in the award-winning Mountain’s Edge master plan. Quintessa, Tacinga Ridge and Maravilla Vistas offer residents their own amenities in addition to the multitude of parks, pools, playgrounds and public spaces available throughout the master plan.

Quintessa offers more amenities than most other neighborhoods within Mountain’s Edge including a large pool with beach style entry, hot tub, showers and bathrooms in the pool area, a barbecue area with grills and table seating and two putting greens.

“Quintessa even gives residents a full fitness center where they can not only exercise, but socialize and get to know their neighbors,” sales counselor Dolly Hargroves said.

Ryland Homes is building two neighborhoods in Mountain’s Edge: Tacinga Ridge and Maravilla Vistas. Tacinga Ridge offers the privacy of a gated neighborhood and Maravilla Vistas is located within walking distance of a 20-acre park.

Mountain’s Edge features more than 500 acres devoted to open space, parks and trail systems. Among them are Exploration Peak and Exploration Park. Exploration Peak is a fully restored natural mountain park and Exploration Park is a western-themed park at the mountain’s base with picnic areas, playgrounds, walking trails, replicas of a western town and Indian village, an archaeology dig site and an outdoor amphitheater.

Ryland Homes also builds neighborhoods outside of master plans with their own private amenities. One of its most popular new neighborhoods, X-It in southwest Las Vegas, includes a pool, spa, clubhouse and fitness center along with a gated entrance with complete landscaping maintenance.

“It’s a true turn-key lifestyle,” sales counselor Dave Wahlen said. “The only thing you need to worry about is what you’ll have for dinner … and there are dozens of unique dining options right around the corner near Tropicana Avenue and Fort Apache Road.”

In North Las Vegas, Ryland’s resort-style town house neighborhood, Monteverdi, is located near popular northwest area parks, shopping and the 215 Beltway.

Residents of this gated community enjoy exclusive access to a neighborhood pool, clubhouse, fitness room, tot lot and walking trails.

“And nearly every Ryland neighborhood in Southern Nevada includes our signature rooftop decks either as standard features or options,” Abraham said. “From panoramic vistas to quiet afternoons at the pool, Ryland makes your home a true respite from the busy world outside. Check out one of our communities today and see all the amenities you could enjoy in your new Ryland home.”

Ryland Homes is selling new homes in collections throughout Southern Nevada. Its sales offices are open 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Sunday through Thursday and noon to 6 p.m. Fridays. For more information, visit www.rylandvegas.com.
