Shea at Ardiente offers energy-efficient residences

Some home shoppers are looking to Shea Homes at Ardiente, an age-qualified resort-style community in North Las Vegas, to start their retirement with the new year.

Sisters Kat Snell and Deb Dwelly are homeowners in the community.

“Ardiente is a family with new friends and a close-knit community that makes these life changes so much easier,” Snell said. “Shea Homes made the retirement transition an easy one and an easy choice.”

Ardiente features a private 20,000-square-foot clubhouse with two resort-style pools, fitness center, group exercise studio and access to miles of walking trails.

“At Ardiente, we’re not just selling homes, we’re offering a once-in-a-lifetime lifestyle,” said Kyle Tibbitts, community manager at Ardiente. “With that comes homes built with the highest integrity and attention to detail so our residents can rest assured they’re in the home of their dreams, each and every time they walk through the front door.”

He said the builder’s SheaXero — The No Electric Bill Home helps to eliminate monthly electric bills and can save homeowners as much as $3,000 per year.

The system combines solar power and 14 energy-saving features. Energy-efficient features include Whirlpool Energy Star appliances, Trane energy-efficient heating and cooling systems, low-E3 vinyl windows, cathedralized attic insulation and blown-in insulation. Tibbitts said the solar system is included in the price of the home.

“Our dad was a builder, and when we saw how well these homes are built and the high standard Shea adheres to, we knew it was a no-brainer to move to Ardiente,” Dwelly said. “The frosting on the cake is the saving in energy. There is nothing like going green with a SheaXero home.

“Would we do it again? Would we spread the word? We would yell it from the rooftops.”

Ardiente has a limited selection of SheaXero designer homes available. These quick move-in options include the St. Tropez and the Florence models. The builder is offering a $500 Visa gift card to those purchasing a designer home by the end of the year.
