Excitement continues to build as Ovation at Mountain Falls — William Lyon Homes’ age-qualified community — nears its scheduled opening of early spring. The debut of these homes represents the builder’s first Nevada edition of its new “Ovation, A Lyon Active Lifestyle Community” collection.
With characteristic expertise and intuitiveness, the William Lyon team re-envisioned the design of the typical senior living environment. This meant focusing on the varied lifestyles choices that today’s 55-plus buyers seek, which is a world apart from the alternatives offered to their parents’ generation
“Of course, lifestyles change over time, but possibly more for this age group than others,” said Brad Nelson, president of the Nevada Division of William Lyon Homes. “Baby boomers have reshaped every decade, so much that the old ‘norms’ have all but vanished. No more ‘30 years and a gold watch,’ then retire and pass the time waiting for the grandkids to come visit. These days — between an encore career, exercise classes, travel and social activities — those same grandkids might find time on grandma’s lap a little hard to come by.
“Now, it’s not unusual to see three generations out enjoying the same activities together, and that’s precisely the point. These 55-plus buyers age differently than previous generations, which meant we needed to rethink every facet of the living environment to meet not only today’s needs, but also the years to come.
“So, that’s what we did, by utilizing our research and decades of homebuilding experience. William Lyon created a new lifestyle experience with Ovation by incorporating timeless architecture, feature-rich style and ambience and extraordinary amenities. The result? An entirely new interpretation of private spaces and social community that blends perfectly with the modern and active-adult lifestyle of today’s 55-plus buyers. And, one that also plans for a future of aging gracefully in place.”
Just a few examples toward those goals include nine single-level homes with open plans and clean lines, with a thoughtful orientation to nature, views and outdoor living. More comfortable living is found in large, covered patios with optional outdoor kitchens, walk-in showers with seats, wider interior doorways and additional storage space.
Within the gates of the Pahrump housing development is the start of many active lifestyle opportunities. Close at hand and private to Ovation residents is a recreation center that syncs indoor/outdoor spaces — from pool, spa, fire pits and outdoor barbecues to cardio, fitness, billiards and creativity rooms. Beyond the Ovation gates, fun and wellness continue with easy access to the Mountain Falls master plan trail systems’ smooth path to the golf club, pro shop, Grill Room and resident’s facility. Here, recreation, gathering, event, socializing and wellness areas are shared by the Mountain Falls community as a whole.
Ovation’s location within Mountain Falls capitalizes on the existing foundation of the master-planned community and its amenities. Its stunning geographic setting ringed with mountain ranges; vast views and open skies; and the perks of being a 45-minute drive from the Las Vegas Valley.
Tying all those elements so successfully into one community made Ovation at Mountain Falls the “2018 Gold Award Winner for Best 55+ Independent Living Community, On the Boards,” as presented by the NAHB (National Association of Home Builders).
Ovation at Mountain Falls is a gated community consisting of three distinct product offerings: Onyx, Jade and Topaz, each of which features three floor plans. These nine modern single-story homes are within the golf course master plan of Mountain Falls with many homesites offering stunning golf course, desert and mountain views. Natural light is in abundance throughout each floor plan, designed with an eye toward maintaining private living spaces, smart technology and a fresh, contemporary style.
One feature of particular note in all floor plans at Ovation is the open concept interior of the main gathering areas. Effortlessly weaving together indoor and outdoor environments and enhanced with options for multislide doors, additional windows and an outdoor kitchen.
Onyx is the smallest collection offering from two to three bedrooms and two to 2½ baths. Each design includes a foyer that leads to a spacious great room and kitchen area, while sleeping quarters have been thoughtfully separated for privacy. Room variations are available per plan, including the option to turn a den into a dining room, third bedroom. Extending the two-car garage is also an option. Plans range from 1,462 to 1,732 square feet, with pricing from $206,000.
Jade is the next Ovation collection, stepping up in size and flexibility, with pricing from $269,000. Two to four bedrooms are available with up to 2½ baths, where buyers may choose to alter spaces (per plan) into a second bedroom suite, add a fourth bedroom or an optional hobby room and pantry. Before even getting to the option list, the increased square footage (1,982 to 2,152 square feet) provides a sense spatial abundance where it makes the most sense in daily living — the master bedroom, the kitchen island, the laundry room and the closets.
Topaz is the largest of the Ovation collections, combining many features and qualities of Onyx and Jade, while enhancing the experience even further. Front porches and courtyards grace exteriors (per plan), while every great room entry continues the sense of generous space and outdoor enjoyment. Two to four bedrooms, 2½ baths, and two and three-car garages (per plan) are priced from $295,000, with a number of available area configurations available.
Those familiar with William Lyon Homes will recognize the painstaking attention to every detail in the selection of finish materials chosen and quality of construction. At Ovation at Mountain Falls, these include granite kitchen countertops, garden tubs, designer plumbing fixtures and quality cabinetry.
Buyers can choose from designer-created packages of flooring, countertops and other interior selections, or may visit the William Lyon Design Studio.
