Single-story homes in Tularosa, a southwestern valley neighborhood, range from 1,514 to 2,102 square feet with three bedrooms and two baths and are priced from $164,000.
"William Lyon Homes builds homes that are ideal for entertaining, both inside and out. We are known for designing homes with open great rooms and spacious family rooms that are ideal for indoor entertaining and for offering home sites that provide ample space for outdoor living," said Julia Giordani, Tularosa sales agent.
"At Tularosa, the space for everyday living and entertaining includes not only a home’s inside, but also its backyard where buyers may opt for a covered patio. Some of our homes are located along a walking path and greenbelt, adding to the backyard’s ambience," Giordani said. "Our location, within the Mountain’s Edge master-planned community, also lends itself to outdoor recreation with trails, parks and picnic areas all nearby."
To visit Tularosa, take the Las Vegas Beltway to Rainbow Boulevard and head south. Turn right on Blue Diamond Road and then left on Buffalo Drive. Proceed south to Erie Avenue, turn left and follow signs to the neighborhood.
Homebuyers also have the opportunity to live along a walking path at The Fields in the Aliante master-planned community in North Las Vegas, where two-story homes feature 2,210 to 2,723 square feet, four or five bedrooms, 2½ or three baths and prices from $183,000.
"Aliante did an amazing job of setting land aside for walking trails and arroyos, as well as parks throughout the community. Some of our homes, at The Fields, overlook a walking trail that meanders throughout the community and connects to one of Aliante’s many parks," sales associate Tammy Temple said.
"We offer homes with patios and even second-story walk-out decks along the walking trail, which is very nice because it not only adds to your outdoor living space, but you can view the community from a different perspective."

"There’s plenty of room, both inside and outside, for family gathering and entertaining. There’s plenty of room if you want a pool or a trampoline, or a covered patio for barbecuing," Bengston said, adding that home sites that accommodate RVs are available in Phase Four.
