The master-planned community of Summerlin® continues to wow new home buyers with its wide variety of floor plans in its scenic Paseos village west of the 215 Beltway, including two neighborhoods that share a single entry: Sarasota by CalAtlantic Homes and Altura by Toll Brothers.   Both neighborhoods, though distinctly different in price and style, are marked by a park-like entrance that creates a grand sense of arrival for residents and visitors, alike.

Featuring six floor plans, including one single-story and two unique reverse living designs, Sarasota offers five plans with hidden rooftop decks that afford views of Red Rock Canyon to the west and the Las Vegas valley to the east. The five two-story floor plans are designed with spacious and open first-floor layouts that connect great room, dining room and kitchen. All six floor plans offer standard and optional design elements including a first-floor master suite, dual master bedroom suites,  gourmet kitchen upgrades, bonus room with wet bar, master bedroom suite with private balcony, den, Wi-Fi station, large bonus room with adjacent balcony, covered patio, family room and a unique bunk room for even more sleeping space.

Sarasota floorplans range from 2,189 to 2,572 square feet and feature up to five bedrooms, three-and-one-half baths and a wide variety of design options, including two unique floor plans that feature outdoor stair cases with second-floor entries.   Homes at Sarasota are priced from the mid-$300,000s to the low $400,000s.

The gated Altura neighborhood features four, elegantly designed, two-story floor plans ranging from 3,842 to 4,237 square feet, ideal for entertaining and expansive living.  Each Altura floor plan features unique architectural elements, offering up to seven bedrooms, six-and-one-half baths, three-car garages and covered patios. Homes at Altura are priced from the $600,000s.

The 3,842-square-foot  Provenza model offers a formal dining room, first-floor bedroom with full bath, 21-foot ceiling heights in the great room and optional attached casita.  The Venosa, at 4,037 square feet, includes an entry foyer with 20-foot ceiling, striking curved staircase, formal dining room and separate living room. A courtyard, covered patio, master-suite covered deck and optional balcony adjacent to the loft offer multiple spaces for comfortable outdoor living.

The slightly larger Brescia floor plan (not modeled) spans 4,042 square feet and features a first floor guest suite with full bath and walk-in closet, optional attached casita in place of a single-bay garage, dual walk-in master bedroom closets and a huge covered patio and covered deck. The expansive Sorrento, offering 4,237 square feet, features a foyer, curved staircase and large great room connecting kitchen and dining area. The first floor also offers a full bedroom suite and planning center or optional wet bar or wine cellar.

“The array of home styles and prices at Sarasota by CalAtlanic Homes and Altura by Toll Brothers accommodate families at all stages – from young, growing families with small children to empty nesters with visiting adult children, as well as home buyers seeking the ultimate house for entertaining in style,” said Danielle Bisterfeldt, VP – marketing, Summerlin.  The built-in flexibility in floor plan features, coupled with the area’s unparalleled topography and elevation that creates spectacular 360-degree views, is unbeatable. It’s no wonder these are such popular neighborhoods.”

Residents at Sarasota and Altura are within walking distance of the 12-acre Paseos Park and two developing amenities: Fox Hill Park; and a new public elementary school under construction by Clark County School District. Both are slated to open in 2017. Also nearby in the adjacent Vistas village is a neighborhood shopping center with grocery store, bank and eateries, as well as a large Summerlin community park with a new community center, pool and children’s splash pool.

Just minutes away is the 215 beltway offering convenient access to McCarran Airport, the Las Vegas strip and the 106-acre Downtown Summerlin area home to  fashion, dining and entertainment in the heart of the community. For more information about Summerlin’s newest homes and amenities, visit 

PHOTO CAPTION: This paseo that runs through the Paseos village will eventually connect the developing Fox Hill Park and the Paseos Park.  Summerlin’s award-winning, 150-mile trail system connects neighborhoods, parks and schools throughout the community and provides a great place to walk, run and bump into neighbors and friends.
