Laticia and David Dang like being first.  In fact, the couple, who has lived in Las Vegas for more than 20 years after relocating from Hawaii, was the very first buyer at Vistara by Pulte Homes in The Cliffs village at Summerlin when the neighborhood opened late last summer.  Their home is currently under construction and is expected to be complete soon.


“We can’t wait to move in and hope to be the first residents of Vistara,” said David of the couple’s new home, the La Vista floor plan, which spans 2,599 square feet. “This move is a big deal for us and represents a new chapter in our lives. Our previous home became too big for us and required too much maintenance.  This one is not only a better size, it’s modern, fresh and open.  We are so excited to make it our new home.”


Vistara, a gated neighborhood, offers six unique floor plans in both single- and two-story layouts ranging from 2,156 to 2,599 square feet and offering from two to five bedrooms, including a first-floor master bedroom; and two-and-one-half to four-and-one-half bathrooms.  Vistara homes are priced from the high $300,000s.


Vistara’s most distinctive characteristic is its “rugged contemporary” architectural style, designed to blend with The Cliffs’ stunning natural environment that includes the dramatic ridgeline that forms a gorgeous backdrop to the entire area.  To take advantage of the village’s outside beauty, Pulte has numerous options to personalize your space, such as large covered patios and balconies, multi-panel sliders, outdoor built-in fireplaces and BBQs seamlessly blend indoor and outdoor living spaces throughout Vistara homes.  


Stretching south of Bishop Gorman High School near the southernmost tip of the community, The Cliffs is conveniently located near the 215 beltway for easy access to all points in the valley, including McCarran International Airport, the Strip and Downtown Summerlin.


“Location was another selling point for us,” said David.  “Laticia and I both work on the Strip, so proximity to the 215 beltway is critical. That, coupled with the spectacular views of both the Strip and majestic cliffs, make this the perfect place for us.”


According to Danielle Bisterfeldt, VP - marketing, Summerlin, the village was carefully designed to maximize the area’s terraced landscape, allowing for unobstructed views in some neighborhoods.  To further maintain the area’s natural beauty, areas of land within the village will remain undisturbed and undeveloped. “Designed with a contemporary aesthetic for today’s families, these handsome homes perfectly blend with The Cliffs’ ruggedly striking topography,” said Bisterfeldt.  “They offer many options for true outdoor and indoor living in a home that is both energy-wise and spacious.”


Pulte keeps consumers top of mind when designing such features as ample storage and large living spaces, and includes industry-leading home warranties with a focus on energy efficiency. These elements, including tankless water heaters, Energy Star appliances, Low e-windows and High SEER HVAC systems, combine to earn Vistara a 3.1 Energy Star rating and superior build quality.  Vistara homes are priced from the high $300,000s.


The Cliffs village will eventually be home to 11 neighborhoods encompassing more than 1,700 homes. Village amenities include Faiss Middle School, Faiss Community Park, Wet ‘n’ Wild water park and an indoor aquatic center built by The Howard Hughes Corporation that was deeded to Clark County for public use. A new public elementary school is set to open this fall, and future trails and a Summerlin village park are in the planning stages.  A Cliffs village address also comes standard with all that Summerlin offers:  235 parks, 150-plus miles of interconnected trails, 10 golf courses, more than two dozen public and private schools and more.  Just minutes from The Cliffs, the Downtown Summerlin® area boasts more than 106 acres of fashion, dining and entertainment, including more than 25 restaurant options and the future NHL practice facility for the Vegas Golden Knights.
