Affinity by William Lyon Homes in Summerlin® puts focus on Millennials with vibrant lifestyle, right-sized floorplans perfect for entertaining

Affinity by William Lyon Homes in Summerlin Centre, just west of the 215 Beltway on West Charleston Blvd, is one of Summerlin’s most unique and diverse neighborhoods that offers four distinct living arrangements ranging from one-bedroom flats to townhome-style condos, second floor flats and single-family cluster duplexes. 

 

According to Kim Chitwood, VP of Sales & Marketing for William Lyon Homes, what really sets this distinctive Summerlin neighborhood apart is its vibrant lifestyle for residents of all ages.  Designed to cater to those seeking a maintenance-free lifestyle, from millennials to empty nesters,  Affinity  homes range from 874 to 2,492 square feet and are affordably priced from the mid-$200,000s in this gated neighborhood. 

 

“Affinity floorplans are also ideal for young professionals and Millennials because they are appropriately sized for singles and couples; they are designed for entertaining and socializing; - a features that really resonates with younger buyers.”

 

According to Chitwood, the Revo model features a third-floor party deck with insta-worthy views of the entire valley that make any social gathering extra fun. The Evoke Plan 1 offers single-floor living with direct access garages, while the Savu Plan 1 offers a second floor flat, that doubles as a great party space or comfortably accommodates a roommate.

“There is a real trend toward experiential living, which calls for smaller homes with reduced maintenance,” said Chitwood.  “Affinity is the answer to growing demand for more urban style living. Yet it’s in the heart of suburbia within one of the valley’s premier master-planned communities that offers access to unparalleled amenities, including Downtown Summerlin® and all that it offers – shopping, dining, City National Arena – the Vegas Golden Knights practice facility and coming next year, Las Vegas Ballpark – the new stadium for the Las Vegas 51s.”

“Affinity is one of the most exciting and unique neighborhoods to develop in Summerlin given its diversity of living arrangements,” said Peggy Chandler, SVP- Summerlin.  “While Summerlin has long been known as a community comprised primarily of single family homes in a variety of price points, today we are welcoming a greater variety of attached housing products that accommodate emerging trends and lifestyles. From inception, Summerlin was envisioned as a multi-generational community, and the growing diversity of the community’s housing options helps us to maintain that goal.”
