Ardiente offers resort lifestyle

Shea Homes at Ardiente, one of the top-selling communities in Nevada, is a stunning resort community that features luxurious amenities, advanced, energy-efficient home designs and a lifestyle that connects people who share a similar zest for life. Homebuyers are flocking to this one-of-a-kind community and prime location set amid the serenity of the Southwestern desert and surrounded by the excitement of one of the world’s top travel destinations.

“Guests always comment on how warm and welcoming Ardiente is,” said Kyle Tibbitts, general manager. “Every time I tell them, it’s our homeowners that truly bring it to life. Every resident is so passionate about their home and their community that many of them even devote their free time to showing prospective buyers around. They are proud of the community they call home and love answering new homebuyers’ questions from a ‘real-life homeowner’s perspective.’ ”

One of the couples Tibbitts is referring to is homeowners Joe and Deb Kelly. The Kellys moved into their new Rome SheaXero-No Electric Bill Home last August and volunteered to be Ardiente ambassadors from the beginning.

“Joe and I love when interested homebuyers visit the community,” Deb Kelly said. “Homebuyers always ask if Ardiente is really as amazing as they say it is, and we get to tell them it really is. We’re so happy, and everything the sales team told us — how the community is, how wonderful the people are — it all came true. Every morning we wake up and say we are so thankful to be here.”

Some residents say the resort amenities make living at the community feel like an endless vacation. To top it off, every homebuyer has the opportunity to speak with homeowners like Joe and Deb Kelly, who not only share their own Shea stories, but give insight into what the people and the social opportunities are like.

Among Ardiente’s resort-style amenities is a 20,000-square-foot contemporary Club featuring two resort-style pools, state-of-the-art fitness center, lighted tennis courts lined for pickle ball, bocce courts, chipping and putting greens, billiards room, game room and business center.

“We’re both very active, and I just couldn’t see myself retired, sitting at home and watching TV all day. It’s just not me,” Deb said. “That’s why we both love Ardiente. Here, you can be as active or inactive as you want to be.”

Ardiente’s SheaXero-No Electric Bill Homes can save homeowners as much as to $3,000 a year on their electric bills thanks to a powerful solar power system and energy-efficient features that drastically cut each home’s carbon footprint, Tibbitts said. Thanks to the financial relief, these advanced homes clear the path for homeowners to invest their time and money in what they love, he said.
