Summerlin’s Mesa Village to open new neighborhoods

Several new neighborhoods in Summerlin’s Mesa village are opening this summer, offering a variety of home styles including townhomes, single-story ranch-style homes and traditional two-story floor plans with up to six bedrooms and three-car garages.

The new homes provide buyers with the latest in energy saving technology, built-in safety features and the opportunity to choose from a variety of options that turn pre-set floor plans into personalized dream homes, said Danielle Bisterfeldt, marketing director for Summerlin

Buying new comes with new conveniences and immediate and long-term perks that are both beneficial and valuable.

“We know that when people are choosing a home, the difference between buying new construction and choosing a home that’s a few years old may seem like a simple price comparison,” Bisterfeldt said. “But the reality is, homes built today offer construction standards that weren’t in place even just five years ago. That means many new homes have appliances and insulation standards that exceed today’s minimum home construction requirements, greatly reducing utility bills and improving energy conservation from Day One. And standard new home warranties will also significantly reduce maintenance expenses.”

Cielo by Woodside Homes is one of The Mesa’s new developments that features three unique neighborhoods with homes ranging in size from 2,100 to 3,500 square feet and offering as many as five bedrooms and four bathrooms.

Monte Bello by Richmond American Homes features five single-story floor plans and three two-story options, ranging from 2,950 to 4,200 square feet.

Toll Brothers is forming a registry for Vista Dulce, a gated, multi-family luxury townhome neighborhood offering attached garages and private backyards.

“In addition to modern design and upgraded amenities, buyers who choose a new home start off with construction that employs what is called a tighter-sealed building envelope,” said Tom Warden, senior vice president, Summerlin. “That means these new homes come standard with radiant barrier roof sheeting, specially treated window panes and energy-efficient window and door sealants that minimize leakage of cool air in the summer and warm air in the winter. New homes also include improved safety features like smoke and carbon monoxide detectors. New homes aren’t just beautiful; they require less maintenance and boast better energy efficiency and a higher level of safety.”
