Shea Homes launches Vacation Series and energy-saving homes

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 living. Prices start in the $120,000s.

The newly announced Vacation Series offers seven different models in Ardiente's amenity-rich community.

"At Shea Homes, we believe in providing a superior product at prices that make sense to (baby) 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 has also recently announced its SheaXero - the no electric bill home. It's standard on homes that are not in the Vacation Series at Ardiente.

SheaXero frees homeowners from the worry and unpredictability of escalating energy costs because the homes produce as much energy as they consume, according to Smith.

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 the solar-power systems, SheaXero homes come standard with energy-saving features such as Whirlpool Energy Star appliances, Trane energy-efficient heating and cooling systems, low-e vinyl windows and blown-in insulation.

At the hub of the community is a private 20,000-square-foot clubhouse featuring two resort-style pools, an expansive 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.
