Six years ago, when Amy and Elion Prodani moved to Summerlin and put down roots in Las Vegas, they had no children.  However, the decision to live in the master-planned community was both deliberate and intentional, according to Amy, who said the couple collectively recognized this is where they wanted to raise their future family.  Today, the couple, now a busy family of four that also includes two dogs, recently purchased their second Summerlin home at Savona by Woodside Homes in The Paseos village.


“We loved that Summerlin was a master-planned community with lots of parks and walking trails, shopping and restaurants, close to Red Rock Canyon, and it offered the community activities we wanted to provide our family,” said Amy, who has sold real estate in Las Vegas for more than five years.  “We are attracted to the abundance of great schools, both public and private, that are available to us here.”


According to Amy, the family chose Savona because of its location, floorplans, exterior architectural design and Woodside Homes’ reputation as a quality builder.  “We knew we wanted to live in The Paseos village due to its elevation, proximity to Red Rock Canyon and Downtown Summerlin®,” said Amy.  “The new public elementary school under construction in The Paseos village was also a big draw given that our children, Jack, 3, and Giana, 1, will soon be school-age.  And as soon as we saw Savona’s Vernazza floorplan, we knew it was our dream home.”


Amy says the floorplan’s large private courtyard will allow her to work in the kitchen while keeping an eye on her kids who can play outside in a safe, enclosed environment.  The open great room and adjoining spacious kitchen is ideal for entertaining, something that is second nature to Elion, who has long worked in the restaurant business and currently serves as general manager of Costa di Mare at Wynn Resort.  In fact, the couple has already hosted a few neighborhood parties with the goal of building the strong sense of community and belonging they seek.


“We are truly living the good life and are thankful every day for our decision to be part of the Summerlin community and make Savona our home.”


Savona offers four stylish floor plans ranging from 2,092 to 3,220 square feet in both single- and two-story options on expansive lots from 6,000 to 15,000 square feet, priced from the high $400,000s. Located adjacent to the developing 14-acre Fox Hill Park and Rosemary and Billy Vassiliadis Elementary School that will open in August for the 2017-18 school year, Savona is a strong draw for families seeking immediate access to educational and recreational opportunities.


The neighborhood connects to Summerlin’s award-winning trail system and nearby Paseos Park. It is just minutes from the 215 beltway and Downtown Summerlin®, offering fashion, dining, entertainment, Red Rock Resort and the future home of the National Hockey League practice facility for the Vegas Golden Knights. 


Savona homes offer from three to five bedrooms and up to five bathrooms. One floor plan offers a multi-generational suite and home theatre. Design features include gourmet kitchens; oversized showers at master bath; multiple storage spaces; porches, courtyards and covered patios; and entry foyers with elevated ceilings. Two-story floor plans all include three-bay garages. These homes are built under Woodside Homes’ Environments for Living® program, which creates more energy efficient, comfortable and durable homes than conventional code-built homes. Savona homes exceed Energy Star standards by 15 percent. 


The Paseos village features some of the most scenic home sites in the community thanks to the village’s elevated location west of the 215 beltway.  With expansive valley views to the east and stunning mountain views to the west, it’s no wonder that so many families continue to put down roots in The Paseos’ many neighborhoods, including Savona. 


Woodside, which has the distinction as the builder of Summerlin’s first neighborhood that opened in 1991, is also currently building Cielo in The Mesa village, Belmonte in The Paseos village and  Skystone  in The Cliffs village.
