Summerlin offers homes with small foot prints

The master-planned community of Summerlin has long been regarded as Southern Nevada’s premier place to live and a popular choice for the city’s influencers, professionals, captains of industry, celebrities and professional athletes. Yet, Summerlin is also a great place for first- and second-time home buyers, as well as empty nesters and retirees with dozens of floor plans under 2,000 square feet that offer lower maintenance and a lock-and-leave lifestyle, ideal for those who like to travel.

According to Danielle Bisterfeldt, senior vice president of marketing and consumer experience for Summerlin, the community offers its largest selection to date of smaller homes designed for today’s modern families, couples and individuals — homes that are more affordably priced while still offering access to all the amenities that create Summerlin’s hallmark lifestyle.

“Consumer preference for open floor plans, smaller footprints, indoor/outdoor living and flexible spaces are evident throughout many homes in Summerlin today,” Bisterfeldt said. “Summerlin was designed from inception as a multigenerational community with homes in a variety of styles, elevations and price points. Today, Summerlin continues to deliver on the promise of homeownership for a wide range of buyers looking for exceptional value in a premier community.”

Homes in Summerlin measuring 2,000 square feet or less are located in six villages or districts, including South Square, home to abundant neighborhood retail and services and located just off the 215 Beltway for easy access to just about anywhere in the Las Vegas Valley. Within South Square, Trilogy by Shea Homes offers condominium living for those ages 55-plus with four right-sized floor plans from 1,538 to 1,912 square feet, priced from the $600,000s.

Summerlin West, the area of the community located west of the 215 Beltway, is under active development and is rapidly taking shape with dozens of new neighborhoods, including many with floor plans under 2,000 square feet.

In the village of Stonebridge, located along the scenic western edge of the community near W. Charleston Boulevard and Sky Vista Drive, and home to Stonebridge Park and Doral Academy Red Rock Campus, Heritage by Lennar offers age-qualified living for those 55 and older.
