Eric and Chris Fritts were considering a move from New Jersey to Nevada when they visited the Silver State and embarked on a house hunt. After stops in Las Vegas and Henderson, the quest ended at Moutnain Falls, located in Pahrump.
“After a long day of home shopping we sat down at a restaurant and I told another patron that we were going to check out Pahrump the next day,” Chris Fritts said. “She knew all about it and I said, ‘We’re definitely going to find the home of our dreams tomorrow.'”
After touring several homes in the Pahrump area, the couple discovered the master-planned golf community by William Lyon Homes located 45 miles west of the Strip. They stepped into plan three at William Lyon Homes’ Bella Sera at Mountain Falls and proclaimed their search over.
“We instantly knew it was the house for us. It was awesome, beautiful, perfect for our needs,” Chris Fritts said of the 2,897-square-foot, single-story home with five bedrooms, 31/2 baths and three-car garage. “Eric saw the casita and knew he was looking at the media room he had been dreaming about for a long time.”
“I feel so good about our decision to move here,” Eric Fritts said. “Mountain Falls is ideal. This area has a small town feel with a big town just down the road. I would recommend Mountain Falls to anybody — to everybody.”
Like all residents, the couple has exclusive use of Mountain Falls’ community resident facility.
Amenities include a fully equipped fitness center and a resident lounge with a pool table.
An outdoor aquatic center boasts a 25-yard lap pool and Jacuzzi for adults, plus a free-form family pool and interactive splash pad for youth.
