In the master planned community of Summerlin®, homebuilders embrace the great value that residents place on the community’s active outdoor lifestyle, incorporating at least 15 percent of outdoor living space into the design of their homes. That means Summerlin homes come standard with a variety of outdoor living features, including covered patios, loggias and balconies; sun decks; porches and rooftop decks. A unique feature and growing in popularity are front balconies that grace the front of a home’s exterior, providing a vantage point as well as adding architectural interest to a home’s façade.  

According to Danielle Bisterfeldt, SVP, Marketing and Consumer Experience for Summerlin, seamless indoor-outdoor living has long been a hallmark of homes in the community. “It’s more fun to be outside, and that’s something we have long recognized while developing design standards for homes in our community,” said Bisterfeldt. “Plus, Summerlin’s higher elevation delivers views from many vantage points and offers cooler temperatures, making outdoor living even more enjoyable.”

According to Bisterfeldt, water features, custom pools, outdoor kitchens, outdoor built-in flat screen TVs and fireplaces are just a few of the options offered by several Summerlin builders who have become masters at designing homes for the community’s exceptionally beautiful desert environment.  

“Summerlin is situated on elevated topography that overlooks the Las Vegas valley and sits at the foot of Red Rock Canyon,” said Bisterfeldt.  “With the area’s natural beauty and the community’s gorgeous parks, trails, golf courses and streetscapes, it’s no wonder most residents want to spend as much time as possible outside, starting with their own home.”  

Now entering its 32nd year of development, Summerlin delivers more amenities than any other community in Southern Nevada. This includes more than 250 parks of all sizes; resident-exclusive community centers, pools and events; 200-plus miles of interconnected trails; ten golf courses; 26 public, private and charter schools; a public library and performing arts center; Summerlin Hospital Medical Center; houses of worship representing a dozen different faiths; office parks; neighborhood shopping centers; and, of course, Downtown Summerlin®, offering fashion, dining, entertainment, Red Rock Resort, office towers, City National Arena, home of the Vegas Golden Knights National Hockey League practice facility, and Las Vegas Ballpark®, a world-class Triple-A baseball stadium and home of the Las Vegas Aviators®.

Homes, built by many of the nation’s top homebuilders, are available in a variety of styles – from single-family homes to townhomes, priced from the $400,000s to more than $1 million.
