America's Biggest Open House

America's Biggest Open House

Well its back America’s Biggest Open House this weekend in Summerlin!  This is a great event for those who are not as familar with Summerlin as those of us who live here because all of the model homes in all of the communities are open for viewing.  This is a great opportunity to view all of the new construction homes modeled by the builders and have a chance to win prizes while doing it!  If you visit all of the models you get a chance to win a $500 American Express gift card to any General Growth Mall Property and smaller prizes like a $200 gift card for a nights stay for two at the Red Rock Resort, $150 for the fabulous Vinter Grill Restaurant and memberships for the Friends of Red Rock Canyon and a guided hike in the canyon.  
In addition the various builders will have Open House specials and incentives good for only this weekend so if you are thinking about buying a new home this is the weekend to shop!  I am also getting into the Open House spirit and if you contact me it would be my pleasure to give you a guided tour of the community as well as the model homes!  Just give me a call and we will set up a time!  Thank you so much for reading, leave comments and as always visit:

New Residential Opportunities in Summerlin!

Boulder Ridge by Christopher Homes



I recently toured the models at Boulder Ridge by Christopher Homeslocated in the Fabulous Ridges Village in Summerlin.  The Ridges is a large multi-neighborhood, guard-gated custom home community which was named the Third Most Expensive Gated Community In the US by  Christopher homes is building this small neighborhood of 46 Frank Lloydesq palaces nestled in the hillside bordering the Red Rock Canyon National Conversation Area to the west and the glittering Las Vegas Strip to the East.  Bordering Red Rock is a very uncommon and rare feature of these beautiful homes because nothing will be built behind this community, so put on your hiking boots and grab the Camelback and enjoy hiking in one of the most spectacular places in the world right from your back yard gate!

Christopher Homes is taking the headache out of building a custom home in Boulder Ridge but still allowing buyers the flexibility to customize the home to match their uses and tastes!   The design is contemporary and they are so full of features they are hard to describe.  These home are perfect for entertaining or large family because they have huge kitchens with two of everything, butlers pantries and formal dining rooms.  The floorplans have large open areas that can be customized as family or living rooms or home theaters.

Villa Trieste by Pulte Homes located in Summerlin Centre.  Pulte has done a fabulous job of designing and building LEED Certified homes here in Las Vegas!  These are very energy efficient and incorporate roof tile solar power units, tankless water heaters, bi-flush toilets, high efficiency a/c units and the Pulte insulation and quality we expect.  These homes are located in a small neighborhood in West Park in Summerlin Centre directly to the west from the Red Rock Resort and the now stalled Shoppes at Summerlin Centre. 
These are VERY UNIQUE HOMES that are different from every product available in Las Vegas at this time!  What makes them different is the power generating capability of the solar cells and all of the energy and water conserving features that are all part of the base price of the homes in addition to courtyards and small, low maintenance rear yards with just enough space for a small barbecue or cocktail party.  So the bottom line is dramatic energy savings,  high quality construction, appealing, well designed floorplans in a very low maintenance, efficient package!  Best of all, these homes start in the low $200,000s (prices not currently available for new single family residences) and will be within walking distance to the new mall!  What a tremendous opportunity this is for primary residents, a second or vacation home or even as  an investment property!  It would be my pleasure to answer any questions you may have so leave me a comment, contact me directly or visit!

A great group to be a part of!

Tom Warden, Vice President of Community and Government Relations for the Howard Hughes CorporationI recently joined the Summerlin Friends of Red Rock, a group incubated by the Howard Hughes Corporation developers of Summerlin.  The group is a branch of the Friends of Red Rock Canyon which originated in 1985 to preserve the canyon’s resources and provide a volunteer organization to assist the BLM.  I had a great time at the welcome chuck-wagon breakfast and interpretative hike on the Moenkopi trail near the visitors center.  We had a great naturalist, Athena, with the Red Rock Canyon Interpretative Association.  Athena pointed out plants that the native Americans used to wash their clothes, eat and use as a straw and rock formations that geologists come from all over the world to study at Red Rock Canyon- all stuff the typical person sees as desert wasteland!  I had a GREAT time listening to Athena and laughing at Tom’s many jokes and one liners!  This is a great way to meet your neighbors and do something good for this national treasure!
