William Lyon showcases The Cottages neighborhood

William Lyon Homes is offering a move-in package at The Cottages, a gated neighborhood at Centennial Ranch in North Las Vegas.

The area has entered into a new phase of development.

"The Cottages features two-story homes that are beautiful inside and out, with fabulous prices starting from $110,000. They are just waiting for the perfect family," sales associate Mary Layton said.

"Right now, you can buy a turn-key home with everything that you need already there when you move in through our special move-in package," she said. "Buyers will enjoy incredible savings on our homes through our current move-in special of window coverings, a washer and dryer, and a stainless-steel refrigerator and microwave oven included with each home purchased.

"Qualified buyers can lower their out-of-pocket expenses even more through an incentive of up to 3 percent in closing costs using seller's preferred lender," Layton said.

"Plus, we have several quick move-in homes available with very special pricing."

Among the homes that the builder is readying for a quick move-in is the Plan Three design.

This 1,598-square-foot home features three bedrooms, 2½ baths and a two-car garage.

Three additional floor plans are available.

The two-story designs measure from 1,335 to 1,776 square feet and feature as many as four bedrooms, 2½ baths and two-car garages.

According to Layton, buyers enjoy additional savings through William Lyon Homes' inclusion of features, such as granite countertops and stainless-steel appliances in the kitchens, as well as cultured-marble counter tops in the baths.

Residents also have the convenience of maintenance-free front yard landscaping.

"Many of our buyers like the fact that they don't have to worry about weeding or doing yard work because the home owners' association maintains all of the front yard landscaping. This is great if you don't like to do yard work or if you don't live there year-round. It also offers a peace of mind for military personnel who are deployed."

Home shoppers are additionally impressed by the design of the Centennial Ranch community as well as its location.

"The Cottages is just a wonderful gated neighborhood with beautifully landscaped open spaces. I always see families enjoying our 3½-acre community park and its playing field, tot lot and covered picnic area.

There are walking trails throughout and it's just a very beautiful, quiet community," Layton said.

"The neighborhood is in a fabulous location in North Las Vegas with brand-new eateries, restaurants and shopping nearby as well as a new YMCA," she said.

"Plus, our location allows convenient access to both the northern 215 Beltway and Interstate 15, which is great for getting to other areas in the city, especially for those stationed at Nellis Air Force Base and those working at the nearby new veterans' hospital."

To visit The Cottages, take the northern Las Vegas Beltway to Losee Road and travel south.

Head west on Centennial Parkway, south on Bruce Street and then west on Azure Avenue, following the signs to the gated entrance.

The sales office is open daily from 10 a.m.-6 p.m., except Monday, when it opens at noon.
