For those looking to find a new home in Mountain's Edge, Rio Vista by Woodside Homes offers five floor plans with new homes starting in the $130,000s.
"Rio Vista is one of the most affordable communities in Mountain's Edge, which has been named the No. 1 (master-planned) community in America," said Karen Redekop, sales agent. "Here you can have a brand-new home, choose your own features and amenities all while staying within your budget."
Rio Vista's five floor plans range from 1,346 to 1,915 square feet and four are shown as model homes. Each of the two-story homes have three options for exterior elevations, or stylings, including an option with stone accents that Redekop said have proven popular among new home buyers.
Among the floor plans offered at Rio Vista is a 1,574- square-foot design. This home includes three bedrooms, 21/2 baths, great room, open kitchen, loft or optional fourth bedroom and a two-car garage. A 1,772-square-foot plan is offered with three bedrooms, two baths, great room, dining room, standard kitchen island, parlor, upstairs laundry room, loft or optional fourth bedroom and a two-car garage.
"In addition to the 1,772 square foot plan, Rio Vista offers a standard kitchen island in the 1,915 square foot plan," Redekop said.
"This is one of our most popular designs with three bedrooms, formal living and dining rooms, a gourmet kitchen island, bonus room, upstairs laundry room and two-car garage. One of the reasons our homebuyers like this plan so much is that it includes a den or optional fourth bedroom as well as a full bath on the first floor."
According to Redekop, the home's first-floor bedroom and full bath is popular among those who have older parents living with them or a family member with a medical problem that prevents them from climbing stairs.
"As more and more people have multi-generational families, this will become a feature that many homeowners need in their residences," she said.
Rio Vista is among Woodside Homes' best selling communities, Redekop said.
According to Redekop, the benefits of buying a Woodside home is the option to pick individual features and upgrades as well as its 10-year warranty. "With a foreclosure, you don't know what has happened to the home and they are generally sold 'as is.' With a new home you are guaranteed to be the first owner and able to design it the way you really want.
"I have heard buyers say that two or three months after they've bid on a resale, they still didn't know if they had the home. At Woodside Homes, offers are considered and decided on within a few hours. You know you are purchasing the home right away and get all the benefits of buying new.
"And of course, Rio Vista is located in the heart of Las Vegas' best master plan community," Redekop said.
Mountains Edge offers a variety of recreational opportunities and features more than 500 acres of land devoted to open spaces, parks and trail systems.
Rio Vista's sales office and model homes are open 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. daily. The sales office is located at 7944 Avalon Valley Court. To visit, take Blue Diamond Road West and head South on Buffalo Drive. Turn west on Mountain's Edge Parkway to the Rio Vista model homes on the right.
