As most of us discover each year, it’s not easy meeting the wants and needs of everyone on your list when gift-giving season rolls around. But the smart ones have learned to “plan ahead.” After all, you have friends and loved ones in several walks of life; they all have unique personalities and interests of their own; and one way or another, you find you’re always thinking of them.
“It’s the same with us,” said Kim Chitwood, director of marketing for William Lyon Homes. “We spend all yearlong thinking about our homebuyers and how to build homes to meet their different tastes. It takes creating the right location, lifestyle designs and features to meet each budget so that we can offer every homebuyer the right home at the right price.”
She said the builder is offering “A Home for the Holidays” sales promotion with special offers, incentives and move-in opportunities at its 13 new-home neighborhoods through Dec. 31. Prices range from the low $200,000s to more than $1 million.
It starts with single-story homes in the golf-course community of Mountain Falls — Series I at Villa Serena and Series II at Tivoli. Series I at Villa Serena offers four floor plans as large as 2,102 square feet and priced from the mid-$100,000s. Series II at Tivoli steps up in luxury with four plans up to 2,741 square feet and priced from the low $200,000s.
Both Mountain Falls neighborhoods offer a laid-back lifestyle with views of mountains, desert and golf course.
The third all single-story neighborhood is Tierra Este. Priced from the low $200,000s, it’s in a quiet pocket of North Las Vegas and offers stylish architectural design. Homes range to 2,434 square feet with as many as five bedrooms and three-car garages.
Lyon Estates — the 2014 Community of the Year — is in the northwest valley on spacious homesites with wide-open sky views. The recent addition of new floor plans raises the total to seven dramatic single-story designs priced from the low $400,000s — ranging from 2,639 to 4,440 square feet with as many as to five bedrooms and 4½ baths.

Only 87 homesites will be offered at Allegra in a gated community of three two-story floor plans as large as 3,323 square feet.
