With a forecast for spring-time weather this weekend, Tuscan Cliffs invites those looking for a new home to experience its signature indoor-outdoor living philosophy.
“Our commitment to indoor-outdoor living means you can enjoy the scenery all year round, but the homes at Tuscan Cliffs are especially pleasant this time of year,” said Michael Goeth, sales associate for the Southern Highlands development. “It is days like these that make us all thankful we live in Las Vegas. Pleasantly warm days and cool breezy nights give us the opportunity to enjoy the outdoors more than ever.”
Homes include front and interior courtyards, covered patios that overlook pools, spas, waterfalls, cabanas and fire features in the four model homes.
Many create a natural flow between interior rooms and outdoor courtyards through disappearing glass doors, Goeth said. These doors, when closed, appear as walls with large glass windows. When opened, they ‘disappear’ into openings in the walls.
“The outdoor spaces become a more cohesive part of the home, like another living room but with a better view,” Goeth said.
Model homes have fire features in their interior courtyards, backyards, cabanas and patios. The home’s most functional fire element is a standard outdoor kitchen, which includes a grill, refrigerator and granite countertops.
“We designed each home’s water elements to mirror the styling of the homes,” Goeth said. “This gives potential residents a sampling of the unique possibilities for their own private resort within Tuscan Cliffs.”
Water features shown in the model homes include a pool and spa with a rain shower in the Villa de Franchesca. This home’s pool and spa can be viewed from both the covered patio and a cabana. The spa includes a stepped waterfall as well as stone steps leading directly into the main pool.
In the Villa de Gabriella model, natural stone is used to surround the pool and spa and faux stone boulders complete the look.
“This is one of our most popular water features,” Goeth said. “There is a wading pool at one end, a lagoon near the middle and a beautiful backdrop for the spa at the far end.”
The semi-custom home range from 4,328 to 6,001. More than 50 configurations are available among the four base models. Each offers a master suite with a separate retreat, a rear patio, central courtyard and common areas.
Home sites measure at least one-quarter acre. Premium lots, including some with views of the valley and others that are oversized, are available, Goeth said.
Among thousands of available options at every home are home theater systems, elevators, wine cellars and grottos, custom ceiling treatments, swimming pools, outdoor fireplaces and water features.
In addition, each residence qualifies as an Energy Star home, saving owners on their heating and cooling expenses while providing quieter, more environmentally friendly homes, Goeth said.
Base prices start at just over $1 million.
Residents will receive a one-year social membership to the Southern Highlands Golf Club, upon application approval., Goeth said. The club includes a social calendar, spa, resort-style swimming pool and other facilities.
To visit, take Interstate 15 to the St. Rose Parkway exit and go west. Drive north on Southern Highlands Parkway and proceed to Stonewater Lane, then turn left and follow the signs.
