For active adults and empty nesters looking to right-size their homes, the community of Summerlin® currently offers two actively selling neighborhoods with more than 20 floorplans developed exclusively for homebuyers ages 55-plus: Heritage by Lennar and Trilogy by Shea Homes. Two additional actively selling neighborhoods offer all single-story floorplans, including Falcon Crest by Woodside Homes and The Arches by Lennar, while many other neighborhoods feature single-story elevation options.
Popular with retirees and empty nesters seeking easy maintenance homes, a calendar of social events and activities, as well as opportunities to build friendships with like-minded neighbors, age-qualified neighborhoods offer a complete lifestyle each with distinct differences to suit all preferences. Heritage offers single-story detached homes, including one with its own NextGen® suite, while Trilogy offers attached condominium homes in both single- and two-story elevations.
Summerlin’s abundant offering of single-story floorplans is also attracting active adults seeking to enhance home safety and comfort by eliminating stairs.
“We’re seeing an increase in homeowners who prefer to age in place, growing the demand for single-story elevations,” said Jenni Pevoto, Director, Master Planned Community Marketing for Summerlin at Howard Hughes.
According to Pevoto, living in an age-qualified neighborhood is a choice that provides homeowners with the opportunity to meet neighbors with similar interests, travel more easily thanks to simplified home maintenance, and enjoy life more fully with programmed events, activities, and opportunities for social engagement.
“Active adult communities are no longer just for the Baby Boomer population,” said Pevoto. “The oldest members of Generation X, born in the mid-1960s, are also starting to age into the active adult category. Together, both generations are seeking and creating dynamic, fun, and active neighborhoods that provide them the opportunity to right-size their home while upgrading their lifestyle.”
At Heritage by Lennar, located in the picturesque village of Stonebridge, single-family detached homes are offered in nine single-story elevations that range from 1,232 to 2,873 square feet, priced from the high $400,000s to the low $900,000s. The neighborhood is staff-gated to add a level of security and privacy. The largest home includes a NextGen suite that provides ultimate privacy for extended family and visitors. Heritage’s robust offering of amenities include pickleball courts, swimming pool, fitness center, and clubhouse.
At the centerpiece of the village is Stonebridge Park, a 12-acre village park with lighted soccer fields, basketball court, exercise area, pickleball courts, and shaded playground and picnic pavilions. In Stonebridge, Summerlin’s popular trail system and a hallmark of the community, will eventually connect to the Red Rock area as part of a larger planned Clark County Red Rock Legacy Trails project.
Trilogy by Shea Homes is located in the village of South Square, offering an abundance of nearby retail and neighborhood services. Attached homes with both single- and two-story floorplans encourage entertaining and reduced maintenance, while the community’s activities, events, concerts, classes, and clubs offer many opportunities to enjoy life and maintain an active, healthy lifestyle full of fun and socialization. The Outlook Club is at the center of the community and houses a resort-style pool, fitness center, culinary studio, social spaces, pickleball courts, bocce ball courts, and more.
The staff-gated neighborhood of Trilogy offers 13 floorplans from 1,538 to 2,915 square feet, priced from the $600,000s to the low $800,000s. Trilogy homes offer two to three bedrooms with two to three and-one-half bathrooms.
