Couple buys Discovery home in Mountain’s Edge community
September 24, 2011 - 1:02 am
Barbara and Bill Scannell know homes. With five children and more than a dozen grandchildren, the couple has purchased 14 homes throughout their 53-year marriage, in the United States and abroad. Most recently, they moved into Cascade in Mountain’s Edge. The couple anticipates moving into their new home right around the time of their 54th wedding anniversary.
“We moved to Las Vegas about three years ago and divide our time between here and Palm Springs,” said Barbara Scannell. “We had been looking for the right home for some time and decided to check out Mountain’s Edge. “We went to the Visitor’s Center at Mountain’s Edge to find all of the neighborhoods with single-story homes, since running up and down stairs is no longer fun for us.”
Scannell said she checked out all of the single-story homes available in Mountain’s Edge and found Discovery Homes had the best floor plan at the best price.
The Scannells purchased Discovery Homes’ Luciana plan in its Cascade collection. The Luciana is a 2,624-square-foot home with three bedrooms, two baths, vaulted ceilings, granite kitchen countertops, a formal dining room, great room and a three-car garage.
“I really like the floor plan. It suits our lives well,” Scannell said. “It is very open with the vaulted ceilings and I like that the kitchen is open to the living room. The kitchen is a primary area of the home and where we spend a lot of time. So I like that this home’s kitchen is central in the home and is in the middle of things.”
Extra space was also available with this home site and the Scannells plan to build a pool in their new backyard.”
Discovery Homes offers its Breckenridge and Cascade collections in Mountain’s Edge. Both are housed in the master plan’s only guard-gated community. Six unique designs in the collections allow homebuyers to choose their space. Large master bedrooms, covered porches, private courtyards and up to four-car garages are available on homes that start at just $234,990.
Standard features include granite kitchen countertops, energy-efficient construction and designer selected beech wood cabinetry throughout the homes. The builder also offers a 2-10 Warranty, which goes beyond the traditional one-year warranty from the second to the 10th year of ownership for construction and structural defects.
Mountain’s Edge has devoted more than 500 of its 3,500 acres to community parks and recreation. It is surrounded by mountains and is less than a 15-minute drive from Red Rock Canyon, Spring Mountain Ranch and Bonnie Springs.
The sales office is open daily from 10 a.m.-6 p.m. To visit, take Blue Diamond Road to Buffalo Drive and head South on Buffalo. Turn right on Gomer Road and make the first left to the community. For more information, call 202-3200 or visit discoveryhomes.us.
