Los Altos By Toll Brothers Opens Models Showcasing  One-Of-A-Kind Floor Plans And Largest Lots In Summerlin® 

Three models offering spacious floor plans at Los Altos by Toll Brothers recently opened and are available only in the master-planned community of Summerlin®.  Located in Summerlin’s Paseos village, homes at Los Altos are built on the largest lots currently selling in the master-planned community. The neighborhood is positioned to offer views of the Las Vegas valley and is set against a picturesque backdrop created by Red Rock Canyon National Conservation Area. 

The neighborhood’s location, large lot sizes and spacious floor plans were enough to sell nearly 20 homes, even before the models were completed, according to Dan Wright, division vice president, Toll Brothers.  “Building on Toll Brothers reputation for excellence and quality, we incorporated even more luxurious and innovative features into these designs and the homes practically sell themselves.”

Priced from the high $700,000s, Los Altos offers four single-story floor plans that range from 3,094 to 3,822 square feet on lot sizes from 8,400 to 12,000 square feet. A few additional sites as large as 17,000 and 23,000 square feet will be released later this year. They include three or four bedrooms, three-and-one-half or four-and-one-half baths and three-car garages. With gated neighborhood entry these homes come standard with foyers, formal dining rooms, coffered ceilings, 12-foot sliding doors, covered patios, courtyards and an optional casita.

“We are building our dream home at Los Altos,” said Melissa Payan, who, along with her husband, Jason, purchased their third Summerlin home at Los Altos earlier this year after seeing their friends’ home. Scheduled for completion in October, the Payan’s new 3,800-square-foot home is set on a 17,500 square-foot lot. “We weren’t even in the market for a new home, but we fell in love with Los Altos when we toured the lot our friends purchased. We bought the kind of lot I always wanted, and the home feels really custom, thanks to the opportunity to select finishes and details of our choosing.”

“This is the perfect home for our family,” added Jason. “We knew the wide open floor plan would work really well for us. We wanted a big kitchen to get the kids involved, and all three of them play piano and the cello, so the front formal living room is the perfect music room.”

The Payans’ friends, Irena Hall and her boyfriend, James Sullivan, already have homes in Summerlin but purchased a new home together at Los Altos.  “I have a five-year-old daughter, so the expansive backyard is ideal,” said Sullivan.  “Plus, a new park and elementary school will be opening soon within walking distance, so we truly feel at home here.”

“We never considered leaving Summerlin,” said Hall. “We love Summerlin. We love that it is a master-planned community and now with Downtown Summerlin, we don’t have to go to the strip. We basically have everything we need here.”

The Paseos, located west of the 215 beltway offers quick access to the Las Vegas Strip and McCarran International Airport and is just minutes from Downtown Summerlin®. Nearby amenities include a shopping center with grocery store, multiple restaurants and shops.
