When Kimberly Ferrari and Aaron Williams began looking for a new home just two months ago, the quiet mountain-side communities in the southwest valley appealed to them. After a thorough search of the area, the first-time home buyers and their son Rylan, 5, found what they needed at Rhodes Homes’ West 57th neighborhood located west of Interstate 215, the Las Vegas Beltway, off Sunset Road.
“When we started looking for a new home, we knew that we wanted to be in the southwest. We really like this area because of the nearby mountains where we can go running with our dogs, there’s very little traffic because the community is at the end of the road and it’s close to shopping and parks,” said Aaron Williams, 26, a firefighter with the city of Las Vegas Fire Department.
“It’s also nice because we have family just down the street from here and the nearby schools are really great,” said Kimberly Ferrari, 25, a nursing student who also works at a local law firm. “We already enrolled Rylan in kindergarten for the next school year.”
The family chose Model 1832 at West 57th, a two-story home named for its square footage.
The purchase of their new four-bedroom, 21/2-bath home couldn’t have come at a better time for this growing family as Kimberly Ferrari is expecting and will soon be bringing home a new baby.
“We’ve rented for the past five years and so we’re excited and ready to move into a home of our own,” Aaron Williams said. “We definitely found a house here at West 57th that could accommodate our growing family.”
West 57th is now offering its three floor plans, ranging from 1,720 to 2,225 square feet, with prices starting at $213,000.
Three model homes are offered at West 57th: the 1720 Residence, 1832 Residence and 2255 Residence, named for their respective square footage. Each two-story home includes a fireplace, an upstairs laundry room and two-car garage.
The 1720 Residence is a three-bedroom home with 21/2 baths, a great room and a loft. Its master bedroom includes two walk-in closets as well as vaulted ceilings.
West 57th’s 1832 Residence includes three bedrooms, 21/2 baths, a great room and a loft that can be converted into a fourth bedroom or master retreat.
The 2,255 Residence includes four bedrooms, three baths and a loft that can be converted into a fifth bedroom.
