Las Vegas (June 17, 2016) –  After 36 years in their Anaheim Hills, Calif. home, Gloria and Gary Moreau were ready for a change. They spent a few months renting in Henderson, and after an extensive search around the valley, found their perfect retirement home in Summerlin’s Montecito neighborhood by Toll Brothers.

“People in Summerlin are so welcoming and friendly,” said Gloria. “We met a lot of nice people in other parts of the valley, but we just fell in love with Summerlin,” added Gary.

When they toured Toll Brothers’ new single-story Montecito neighborhood, they realized it was everything they had been searching for.

“We wanted new construction, and this floor plan is the perfect size for us and all of the entertaining we plan to do,” said Gloria, who expects their two married daughters and five grandchildren to visit often.

The gated Montecito neighborhood is located along the cascading slopes of The Paseos village near Red Rock Canyon National Conservation Area. The neighborhood’s Catania, Messina and Trapani single-story floor plans range from 2,495 to 2,874 square feet with homesites that average approximately 8,200 square feet.

Montecito homes include three or four bedrooms and a two- or three-car garage. Enhanced design elements that come standard with each home include gourmet kitchen; and granite countertops.  Courtyards, covered patios and porches extend the living space outdoors. Stunning design options include attached casitas, upscale lighting fixtures, designer wall coverings, custom closets, top-quality appliances, surround-sound throughout and outdoor elements including pools, spas, water features, fireplaces and built-in backyard kitchens.

Additional stand-out elements in the Catania floor plan include a large dry bar or optional wet bar that creates a formal dining room while preserving the home’s open floor plan feel.

Flexibility in the Messina floor plan allows for three or four bedrooms and includes a sizeable front courtyard.

The Trapani, the largest floor plan and the only one with a standard three-car tandem garage, includes a separate formal dining room and two covered patios.

The Moreaus say an added bonus to finding the perfect home is the customer service they continue to receive from the Toll Brothers’ staff.  “Toll is a very responsive builder and the people in the sales office are wonderful. They do whatever they can to make us feel comfortable. They even call us into the office to introduce us to new neighbors,” said Gloria.

Montecito homes start in the high $500,000s. Nearby amenities include walking trails, shopping centers, the 12-acre Paseos Park and a second village park and public elementary school both salted to open in 2017. Just minutes away is access to the 215 beltway and the 106-acre Downtown Summerlin® fashion, dining and entertainment destination in the heart of the community.

“This is a wonderful community and there is so much to do here,” said Gary. “We encourage anyone to make Summerlin their home.”
