Las Vegas Single Family Homes
Las Vegas offers a wide variety of luxury single-family homes for buyers looking for space between themselves and their neighbors. With condo complexes in abundance, the Las Vegas luxury single-family home allows for the option of additional privacy and the license to customize.
Like everything else in Las Vegas, luxury single-family, or detached homes come in a wide variety of flavors. Homes show structural components resembling Art Deco, contemporary, traditional Western, or cutting-edge designs. With a single-family home, the owner has free reign (unless HOA rules say otherwise) over style, layout and composition of their domicile.
Master-planned communities that dominate this desert landscape comprise a majority of luxury single-family homes available for sale. Thousands of acres have been developed into neighborhoods highlighting the advantages of living in single-family residences. Golf courses are built for them, along with shopping malls, and even water parks highlight these well thought out areas. Borrowing the cliché "birds of a feather flock together," as an example of how and why these clusters of rooftops are so successful.
Luxury Single-Family Homes in Las Vegas
The planned communities command of the Mojave all began with Howard Hughes. Mr. Hughes was the son of an engineer. Mr. Hughes Sr. devised a drill bit for oil rigs that could pierce through hard rock layers, leaving his son in the position to be an extremely wealthy man. As it takes money to make money, Howard Hughes came to Las Vegas for a holiday and ended up acquiring enormous amounts of land.
One plot, in particular, a 25,000-acre section near the Red Rock Canyon National Conservation Area went from a far-flung idea to what is now known as the community of Summerlin, Nevada. The area sat dormant for decades after the initial purchase. Then in the 1990s, residential building began to gain momentum. The Hills was the first village built in the now 100,000 person community. After The Hills phase one was completed, a park was constructed, reinforcing the developer's commitment to the residents.
The concept of stages in residential construction was not as prevalent as it is today. The Hughes' approach revolutionized neighborhood blueprints, bringing forethought to the forefront. Planned streets, green spaces, parks, and an overall sense of community were what made this concept unique. And it worked. Today Summerlin is one of the most popular areas to live in Las Vegas.
Residents of Summerlin and other master-planned developments all enjoy a sense of community. Luxury single-family homes line the streets, giving neighbors space, but also a sense of familiarity and belonging. Communal areas, like the parks, allow people the opportunity to interact with those who live close by, but without bumping into them in the elevator.
Of course there are options for luxury single-family homes in the Las Vegas area, but master-planned communities are a great example of how homeowners can combine space with the feeling of closeness to those around them.
