Affinity by William Lyon Homes in Summerlin Centre, just west of the 215 Beltway on West Charleston Boulevard, is now selling with models open. Affinity offers four distinct living arrangements, ranging from one-bedroom flats to town home-style, second-floor flats and single-family cluster duplexes. Designed to cater to those seeking a maintenance-free lifestyle, from millennials to empty-nesters, Affinity homes range from 874 to 2,492 square feet and are affordably priced from the mid-$200,000s in this gated neighborhood.
According to Kim Chitwood, director of marketing for William Lyon Homes, the response to Affinity is widespread, with interest ranging from first-time homebuyers to those who no longer want the maintenance and upkeep that goes with owning a single-family detached home.
“There is a real trend toward experiential living, which calls for smaller homes with reduced maintenance,” Chitwood said. “Affinity is the answer to growing demand for more urban-style living. Yet it’s in the heart of suburbia within one of the valley’s premier master-planned communities that offers access to unparalleled amenities. It’s a great combination, and interest in Affinity reflects that demand.”
Affinity boasts its own recreation center, Club Affinity, for neighborhood residents. It includes two pools, barbecue area, full fitness center with state-of-the-art equipment, movement studio and a multipurpose room that is available exclusively for Affinity residents for special events and gatherings on a rental basis.
Affinity is surrounded by abundant amenities within walking distance, given its proximity to the Downtown Summerlin area bustling with city blocks of fashion, dining, entertainment, Red Rock Resort and City National Arena, practice facility for the Vegas Golden Knights. And its location west of the 215 Beltway provides close proximity to Red Rock Canyon National Conservation Area, known for its outdoor lifestyle that includes world-class hiking, rock climbing, cycling and exploring. Nearby is The Vistas South Tower Park, a 7-acre community park with open play areas, interactive water features and picnic ramadas.
“Affinity is one of the most exciting and unique neighborhoods to develop in Summerlin given its diversity of living arrangements,” said Peggy Chandler, senior vice president at Summerlin. “While Summerlin has long been known as a community comprised primarily of single-family homes in a variety of price points, today we are welcoming a greater variety of attached housing products that accommodate emerging trends and lifestyles. From inception, Summerlin was envisioned as a multigenerational community, and the growing diversity of the community’s housing options helps us to maintain that goal.”

According to Chitwood, living in an urban-style neighborhood is a choice that provides homeowners with the opportunity to meet and build friendships with like-minded neighbors and travel more easily thanks to simplified home maintenance that leaves more time for personal hobbies and interests.
