Tuscan Cliffs offers sweeping views

At Tuscan Cliffs in Southern Highlands, residents can see the city from the comfort of their homes with home sites offering a variety of city and valley views.

"We have several home sites still available with views of both the north and south Las Vegas Strip," said Michael Goeth, sales agent at Tuscan Cliffs. "Our home sites with views to the north offer incredible views of the Strip and city lights. Those with views to the south can see the Southern Highlands golf course, parks and beautiful community water features in addition to the lights of the southern valley."

The master-planned community includes acres of parks, open spaces, water features and community amenities in addition to its Golf Club and Spa.
