DELANO BY LENNAR IN SUMMERLIN® OFFERING 3-D VIRTUAL REALITY TOURS;

NEIGHBORHOOD NOW OVER HALF SOLD

Lennar Homes is now offering 3-D virtual reality tours of Delano, one of its two neighborhoods in the master-planned community of Summerlin.  This state-of-the-art technology makes it possible for prospective homebuyers to “experience” the home without having to personally visit.  And according to Ashley Max, marketing manager, Lennar Las Vegas, the virtual reality tour has been a great boon to sales within Delano, a gated neighborhood within The Paseos village.

“While our 3-D videos can be viewed by anyone on our website and on Summerlin.com, we happily mail a special virtual reality headset to serious homebuyers, including those who live in the valley, along with those who live out of state,” said Max.  “With the special headset, prospective buyers can literally experience the home in true virtual reality and three dimensions from the convenience of their home or office.  It’s an exciting technology that has escalated the sales cycle.  In fact, Delano is now more than half sold.” 

 

According to Max, Lennar is among the first homebuilders in Southern Nevada to use this  technology that can be accessed from a desktop computer, iPad or smart phone. “Virtual reality fully emerges viewers into our homes to allow them to get a true and accurate sense of the home’s space,” said Max. “This technology is also useful for homebuyers to monitor the construction of their home from afar after they have purchased.  We are continually finding new and exciting uses for this technology with our buyers.”

 

Delano features five, two-story floor plans that range from 3,312 to 3,881 square feet and come standard with Lennar’s Everything’s Included package.  One floorplan includes Lennar’s “home within a home” Next Gen® private suite. This signature Lennar feature is the perfect additional living space for buyers who share a home with extended family or who frequently enjoy visits from family and friends. Delano is priced from the high $500,000s. 

 

All five floor plans offered at the gated Delano neighborhood include three to five bedrooms, three and one-half to four-and-one-half bathrooms, large loggias and three-bay garages. The Everything’s Included package means all homes have upgrade-quality features including granite countertops, gourmet kitchen with appliances and fireplaces. Delano also includes standard remote home automation features. Powered by Nexia™ Home Intelligence, Lennar’s home automation features include door locks, an indoor camera and home energy and lighting management which can all be controlled remotely using a computer, smartphone or iPad.

 

In addition to a stunning elevated location west of the 215 Beltway that creates exceptional valley views from select locations, Delano by Lennar Homes shares its entry with a second neighborhood.  This unique architectural design feature creates a grander sense of arrival for neighborhood residents and visitors.  The parklike entry boasts significantly enhanced landscaping that does double duty as open space, perfect for play and socializing with neighbors.

 

The Paseos village includes amenities like the developing 14-acre Fox Hill Park designed with a climbing adventure theme and Rosemary and Billy Vassiliadis Elementary School, a new public elementary school adjacent to the park that will open in August for the 2017-18 school year. The village currently boasts a 12-acre Paseos Park with children’s play area, splash pad, basketball courts and picnic ramadas and is within close proximity to the newly opened Vistas Community Center and pool. A neighborhood shopping center with grocery store, gas station and multiple eateries is nearby. The Paseos is just minutes from the 215 beltway, offering convenient access to McCarran International Airport, the Las Vegas Strip and Downtown Summerlin®, offering fashion, dining, entertainment, Red Rock Casino, Resort & Spa and the future home of the Vegas Golden Knights’ NHL practice facility.
