Live large in a Summerlin condo or town home

While single-family homes are still the dream of many, condominiums, town homes, lofts and other city-style options are growing in popularity for obvious reasons: Their typically smaller floor plans equate to less maintenance; yard work is nonexistent; and there are often abundant amenities on-site. In Summerlin, five neighborhoods offering attached homes in a range of sizes and prices deliver convenient, maintenance-free living surrounded by amenities that encourage a healthy, active lifestyle.

According to Danielle Bisterfeldt, vice president of marketing for Summerlin, homes that better accommodate a more experiential and “lock-and-leave” lifestyle are being sought by all ages — from millennials to empty nesters.

“As the dream of homeownership evolves, so do the options in Summerlin. More and more, we are seeing an interesting variety of attached homes to meet the growing demand for homes with smaller footprints and less maintenance, allowing residents to live more freely.”
