Tucked away in a quiet corner of North Las Vegas, Shea Homes at Ardiente, an active lifestyle retirement community, offers residents a tranquil escape from the hustle and bustle of the city. Now, with the announcement of its Vacation Series, Shea Homes is providing resort-style residences with prices starting in the $120,000s. The series offers seven different models.
"At Shea Homes, we believe in providing a superior product at prices that make sense to boomers considering the reality of retirement. We want our residents to live the luxurious lifestyle they've worked so hard for without breaking the bank. With the Vacation Series, we are able to offer residents the perfect blend of functionality and indulgence that will make any new homeowner feel like they're on vacation year-round," said Ryan Smith, sales manager at Ardiente.
In addition to the Vacation Series, Shea Homes recently has announced its SheaXero -- the no electric bill home, which is standard on homes that are not in the Vacation Series at Ardiente.
Smith said SheaXero frees homeowners from the worry and unpredictability of escalating energy costs because the homes produce as much energy as they consume. The new SheaXero homes will save owners in Shea Home Active Lifestyle Communities thousands of dollars year after year, and is available as an option to some homes in the Vacation Series, Smith added.
High-powered solar-power systems are at the heart of each SheaXero home, producing clean and renewable energy to save money and offset electricity consumption. In addition to generating as much electricity as the home uses, based on a typical household of two, SheaXero homes come with energy-saving features such as Whirlpool Energy Star appliances, Trane energy-efficient heating and cooling systems, low-emissivity 2, vinyl windows and blown-in insulation.
The community is minutes away from the Strip in Las Vegas and close to the desert mountains. Its hub is a private 20,000-square-foot clubhouse that sports two resort-style pools, fitness center, group exercise studio and a multipurpose meeting facility. Outdoor amenities include seven parks interconnected by walking trails, tennis and bocce courts, chipping and putting greens, a basketball court and a Life Trail course.
