California couple finds home at Inspirada

“There’s a ‘spirit of excellence’ among all the Tri Pointe Homes team members who worked in partnership with us throughout the entire new home build process of selecting a community, choosing personalized design options, during construction and move-in,” said Dr. Monica Larson, a clinical and forensic psychologist, and Eric Larson, a Fortune 500 controller.

Empty nesters with two grown sons, the Larsons stepped into the new year and their new Tri Pointe home at Arden in Henderson’s master-planned community of Inspirada in December.

Living in California since 2005, the couple decided a move to Southern Nevada would give them a better quality of life and lower cost of living, affording them the opportunity to purchase a new home with higher quality construction standards and more amenities.

Impressed by Inspirada for its breathtaking views and vibrant feel, the couple also appreciated that “the community’s location in Henderson offered an intimate setting while also being close enough to everything Las Vegas offers,” Monica Larson said.

Among the many Inspirada neighborhoods, it was Tri Pointe Homes’ Arden that grabbed the Larsons’ attention for its contemporary architectural style, quality construction and higher elevation with spectacular views of the Las Vegas Valley. After exploring Arden’s four two-story open floor plans, the couple fell in love with Arden’s Plan One for its spaciousness, quality craftsmanship and beautiful aesthetics. And most importantly, it met the couple’s aspirations for a home that fit their work and leisure lifestyle.

“We both work remotely, so finding a floor plan with bedrooms that would accommodate two offices was imperative,” Monica Larson said. Arden’s Plan One bedrooms feature large windows, which allow for plenty of natural sunlight as well as spectacular elevated views of the mountains, walking trails and the Las Vegas Strip. “It’s a setting that we find peaceful.”

Arden also provides the Larsons with the ideal location for their active lifestyle. “We were impressed by the numerous walking trails and paths,” Larson said. “I love walking to Starbucks for morning coffee, and we’re looking forward to enjoying the dining and retail experiences available within and near Inspirada.”

Like many out-of-state buyers, the Larsons remained in California during the entire construction process, relying on the expertise and consistent communication from the Tri Pointe Homes’ team of professionals to keep things moving smoothly.

“We can’t say enough about the superb customer service we received from Tri Pointe. From sales and construction to design and mortgage, the Tri Pointe staff provided a flawless and seamless experience, taking us throughout the entire process of purchasing our new home,” Larson added.

The couple give a special shoutout to their Tri Pointe new-home adviser Veronica Gottsmith, who kept them apprised on all construction milestones; the Tri Pointe design team who made selecting upgrades easy; Matthew Gladd, Tri Pointe Homes construction manager, who made a last-minute change to the primary suite bathroom happen on the same day it was requested by the Larsons; as well as Xavier Perez, assistant construction manager.

The Larsons also thank customer service representative Grant Harworth, who stepped in and oversaw the delivery of their furniture when it arrived early while they were still in California.

“The Tri Pointe team’s ability to coordinate all aspects of our new home build, work together, authenticity and professionalism made the entire process easy,” she said.

And the icing on the cake — the Larsons’ son, Zachary, visited and gave his approval of their new home. He is now considering a move to Arden.

Homebuyers can choose from Arden’s four distinct two-story floor plans, priced from the $500,000s and featuring two to five bedrooms, 2½ to three baths, spacious great room, modern kitchen, two-car garage and energy-saving features and options through Tri Pointe Homes HomeSmart program.

Arden’s cutting-edge design embodies modern interpretations of Spanish, Desert and Nevada Living architecture that showcases the unique Southern Nevada indoor/outdoor lifestyle.

Pets also can be affected by moving. Cats are more routine-oriented, and packing and moving upsets that balance; however, dogs may be fine until the actual move.

Summerlin homes embrace outdoor living

In the master-planned community of Summerlin residents place great value on the community’s outdoor lifestyle and its beautiful natural surroundings. For those reasons, the community’s homebuilders are required to incorporate indoor/outdoor detail into their homes. That’s why Summerlin homes come standard with a variety of outdoor living features, including covered patios, loggias and balconies, sun decks, porches, rooftop decks and even front balconies that provide a unique vantage point and add architectural interest to a home’s façade.

Summerlin offers homes with small foot prints
