For Millennials and younger homebuyers interested in reducing their footprint, three-story homes are becoming a popular choice in a mix of single-family and attached home styles. In the master planned community of Summerlin®, more than 15 three-story floorplans are now available in five neighborhoods located in Summerlin West, situated on elevated topography overlooking the Las Vegas Valley just west of the 215 Beltway and minutes from Downtown Summerlin®, the community’s vibrant urban core.

According to Jenni Pevoto, Director, Master Planned Community Marketing for Summerlin, three-story homes offer more square footage with smaller footprints, greater separation between bedrooms and living space, the aesthetics of staircases, and often, views via top floors and in some cases, rooftop decks.

“Younger homebuyers, especially, appreciate getting more space in a smaller footprint via a three-story design that is compact and efficient, yet roomy,” said Pevoto. “Staircases, which add architectural interest, and top-floor views are added benefits to those seeking a more sustainable home design.  In all cases, three-story homes in Summerlin embody a contemporary modern design reflective of the progressive tastes of younger buyers.”
