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’s higher elevation delivers views from many vantage points along with cooler temperatures, making outdoor living especially enjoyable,” said Jenni Pevoto, director of marketing at Summerlin. “It’s refreshing to be outside, and that’s something we have long recognized while developing design standards for homes in our community.”

Many Summerlin homebuilders offer additional features via upgrade packages including water features, custom pools, outdoor kitchens, outdoor built-in flat screen TVs and fireplaces.
