Tuscan Cliffs offers hillside homes

Southern Nevada is home to some of the most spectacular views in the state. From the famed Las Vegas Strip to the stunning mountain ranges, Pacific Southwest Development has developed a new home collection that allows residents to enjoy the lights of Las Vegas all the time.

"The Bluffs is a semi-custom luxury home collection that truly maximizes its hillside locale and panoramic views of the city," said sales agent Michael Goeth. "The walk-out style homes feature the majority of your primary living space at street level, with the secondary bedrooms and living areas on the lower level. This gives residents front row seats to the best views in Las Vegas, whether they're in the kitchen, dining room or relaxing in the master suite."

According to Goeth, the walk-out designs at Tuscan Cliffs were made popular by luxury home builders in Southern California.

"Luxury homes in cities like Dana Point, Carmel and Laguna Niguel really use the terrain to their advantage and we have done the same in Southern Highlands," he said. "Not only does the lower level have views of the city and valley, but the main level living areas are at a higher elevation which eliminates any potential obstructions to the views."

At The Bluffs, three model homes, ranging from nearly 6,000 to 6,800 square feet, are under construction. The small collection of home sites is offering a handful of premium locations prior to its scheduled grand opening this spring.

The Bluffs' designs incorporate Pacific Southwest Development's signature New Millennium Home philosophy that allows homeowners to personalize their residences without the traditional hassles and time delays associated with custom-home building.

"Pacific Southwest Development has certainly raised the bar for semi-custom home building with Tuscan Cliffs, and The Bluffs will take this concept to the next level," Goeth said. "Our three model homes will showcase The Bluffs' lavish designs, coupled with breathtaking views of the city and mountains."

Residents of The Bluffs can enjoy full city views from the main level and rear yard, according to Goeth.

"We have incorporated the views into the designs of each home, so whether you're having a dinner party or a pool party, your guests will enjoy breathtaking views of the city in addition to the dynamic company of their hosts."

With lavish designs and unprecedented views, home sites provide additional privacy. Each site measures at least one-half acre and up to 1 acre sites are available.

Model homes carry the Green Home designation through the Build It Green program and incorporate Pacific Southwest Development's passion for indoor-outdoor living, Goeth said.

"Every part of the home keeps in mind the delicate balance between man and nature," he said. "Among our most popular features are interior courtyards that offer a quiet sanctuary within the confines of the property."

Standard amenities at The Bluffs include 12-foot ceilings, Pella windows and doors, stainless steel Viking appliances, exterior stone veneer, 42-inch maple cabinets, granite counter tops, 6-foot Kohler spa tubs and three fireplaces. All homes include outdoor kitchens and disappearing glass doors, which allow residents to link internal and external areas seamlessly.

Options for customization are available in nearly every area of The Bluffs' designs. Personalized room configurations include the popular home theatre, first- and second-floor casitas, walk-out decks, loggias and hobby rooms. Other luxury options include elevators, wine cellars and grottos, disappearing glass doors, wet bars and comprehensive technology systems.

Base prices at The Bluffs start at $3 million.
