Summerlin neighborhoods share stunning location, grand entry

Two neighborhoods in The Paseos village in the master-planned community of Summerlin offer spacious floor plans.

In addition to their elevated location west of the 215 Beltway that creates exceptional valley views from select sites, Belmonte by Woodside Homes and Delano by Lennar Homes have in common one of the most unique architectural features in the community: a shared entrance, which creates a grander sense of arrival for neighborhood residents and visitors. This parklike entry boasts significantly enhanced landscaping that provides open space, perfect for play and socializing with neighbors.

Built for families who love to entertain, Belmonte’s three unique floor plans are designed with interior courtyards and large covered patios with multiple glass doors, allowing for increased natural light and extending the living space outdoors. Belmonte homes, designed with Woodside’s smart energy-saving principles, range from 3,202 to 3,934 square feet and are priced from the high $400,000s.

According to Michael and Angie Gunter, who, along with their children, Maddie, 17, and Ryan, 9, returned to Summerlin after living outside the community for a few years, the family is glad to be back.

According to Angie Gunter, Summerlin is a great place for her family because it’s close to the kids’ schools, Faith Lutheran Middle School &High School and Faith Lutheran Academy. They enjoy a view of Red Rock Canyon; and it’s near her favorite stomping ground, Downtown Summerlin, which includes personal favorites Andiron and Nordstrom Rack.

“There is something especially peaceful and quiet about living in The Paseos village at the foot of the majestic Red Rock Canyon,” she said. “And there is something magical and fun about having access to so many great restaurants and shops just minutes from home. We are so happy to be back in Summerlin and love everything about our house, our neighborhood and our community.”

The Gunters especially appreciate the open design of their home, the Tarrega model, which spans 3,618 square feet and offers six bedrooms and three-and-one-half baths. This floor plan features a first-floor master bedroom suite, laundry room, separate dining room and a great room with 20-foot ceiling heights. The second floor includes an optional loft, home theater or bedroom and balcony. Outstanding features in other Belmonte floor plans include a large outdoor lounge space, second-floor lofts, great rooms, game rooms and multigenerational suites. The largest Belmonte floor plan offers a master suite that connects to an optional retreat or exercise room with optional kitchenette. And a first floor junior suite doubles as an optional multigenerational suite.

Adjacent to Belmonte is Delano with five two-story floor plans that range from 3,312 to 3,881 square feet and come standard with Lennar’s Everything’s Included package. One floor plan includes Lennar’s Next Gen private suite. This signature Lennar feature is for buyers who share a home with extended family or who frequently enjoy visits from family and friends. Delano is priced from the high $500,000s.

All five floor plans offered at the gated Delano neighborhood include three to five bedrooms, three-and-one-half to four-and-one-half baths, large loggias and three-car garages. The Everything’s Included package means all homes have upgrade-quality features, such as granite countertops, gourmet kitchen with appliances and fireplaces. Delano also includes standard remote home automation features. Powered by Nexia Home Intelligence, Lennar’s home automation features include door locks, an indoor camera and home energy and lighting management, which can be controlled remotely using a computer, smartphone or iPad.

The Paseos village includes amenities like the developing 14-acre Fox Hill Park designed with a climbing adventure theme and a new public elementary school adjacent to the park, both slated to open in 2017. The village boasts 12-acre Paseos Park, which is within close proximity to the new Vistas Community Center and pool and features a children’s play area, splash pad, basketball courts and picnic ramadas. A neighborhood shopping center with a grocery store, gas station and multiple eateries is also nearby. The Paseos is just minutes from the 215 Beltway, offering access to McCarran International Airport, the Las Vegas Strip and Downtown Summerlin, the 106-acre shopping, dining and entertainment destination in the heart of the master-planned community.
