Couple returns to Summerlin®, falls in love with Cielo in Mesa Village

In 2011, Summerlin® “boomerang” couple, Chris and Anna Jackson, purchased a home in the master-planned community of Summerlin.  A few years later they moved to a master-planned community in the northwest part of the Las Vegas valley.  Today, they are back in Summerlin, living in a new home by Woodside Homes in The Mesa village’s Cielo neighborhood.

“As soon as we moved away from Summerlin, we knew we had made a mistake and wanted to return as soon as possible,” said Chris. “We are especially enjoying our new location in The Mesa village which offers a sense of sanctuary and privacy and incredible views of both the Spring Mountains and the valley.  Those benefits, coupled with a floorplan we love and proximity to Downtown Summerlin and our daughters’ schools, are the reasons Summerlin feels like home.  We love it here and don’t have any plans to leave this amazing community.” 

Today, the Cielo neighborhood is in its final phase, offering four spacious and open floor plans ranging from 2,102 to 3,498 square feet with three to six bedrooms and up to five bathrooms. Homes in Cielo include one single-level home with three or four bedrooms, while its two-story floor plans offer three-bay garages, a first-floor master-suite, separate dining room, optional office and entry foyer. Select designs provide the versatility of a bonus room or study that may be selected as an optional extra bedroom or casita. These homes are priced from the mid-$400,000s to the mid-$500,000s. 

Featuring spectacular upgrades, Cielo’s models  showcase the two-story homes’ standard design features including foyers; 10-foot, first-floor ceilings; multiple windows in every room offering expansive natural light; three-bay garages; and front and backyard pavers. Indoor and outdoor entertainment spaces, including lofts, large covered balconies, courtyards and loggias are a staple to these homes.

Cielo homes are designed with desert contemporary, modern craftsman and modern architectural exteriors. Gourmet kitchens feature granite countertops, large food-preparation islands, maple cabinets, generous pantries and GE appliances. Outdoor living spaces include porches, loggias and courtyards and feature front yard water-conscious landscaping and paver stone driveways and walkways. Each home design comes with Woodside's standard energy efficient construction and is solar ready.

“Woodside Homes is Summerlin’s very first homebuilder and opened the community’s first neighborhood I 1991,” said Danielle Bisterfeldt, VP, marketing – Summerlin.  “Obviously, their quality speaks for itself as one of the community’s enduring builders, and their designs have continued to evolve and adapt to today’s modern families.  Cielo is an exceptional neighborhood in an exceptional village that offers an array of great amenities and a stunningly beautiful location at the foot of the Spring Mountains.”

The popular single-level Balboa 4510 Plan encompasses approximately 2,102 square feet and offers up to four bedrooms, three baths, great room, covered loggia, and two bay tandem garage. Options include a casita, junior suite, and spa at master bathroom.
