Summerlin Luxury Properties For Sale
There is a bit of a rivalry between Summerlin Luxury Homes for Sale and the luxury home communities in Henderson and elsewhere in Las Vegas. Based on the number of $1 Million plus homes sold over the past year, Summerlin seems to be winning the contest.
For homes that SOLD between $1M and $1.5M, Summerlin had 59 closings. Henderson trailed with 38 in this price bracket. The rest of Las Vegas came in with 32, including 4 in Queensridge.
Summerlin also had the highest number of homes that sold for more than $1.5M with 46, followed by 26 in rival Henderson, 37 in the rest of Las Vegas. Queensridge, which is technically not part of Summerlin accounted for 7 of the "Las Vegas" closings.
While Queensridge isn't part of Summerlin, the location is just across the Street and it's right in the heart of the shopping that folks in Summerlin enjoy. Considering that Queensridge had three homes that sold for $4M, $6.3M and $6.4M, it should still rank on anyone's short list of most desirable neighborhoods in Las Vegas.
Summerlin Luxury Homes for Sale
Summerlin has several luxury home communities that are fully developed and some that are still being built. Considering that Summerlin is one of our most popular communities, one could argue that having any Summerlin address is prestigious and qualifies as the luxe life. For those who are looking for a truly luxurious home in a guard-gated setting that is truly exclusive, we suggest you consider the following Top Seven Summerlin Neighborhoods.
This contemporary enclave has established itself, not only as the most exclusive neighborhood in Summerlin, but is included on anyone's list of the top communities in Las Vegas and Henderson. This community is bordered by Bear's Best golf course on the East side with the Spring Mountains on the West side. There are several villages within the two guard-gates that allow entrance to the Ridges.
The entry level homes include Topaz Ridge, an all single story section that borders the golf course with highly upgraded production homes that were built by William Lyons Homes between 2002 and 2005. Another production community, Boulder Ridge, was started by Christopher homes in 2006 with contemporary, semi-custom homes.
More recently, William Lyons has started construction of model homes that will open in March in the Sterling Ridge section. These are semi-custom homes that have adapted many of the contemporary finishes seen in the custom homes in the Ridges.
True luxury awaits in the custom home communities. These include the newest, Azure Ridge where construction continues on many of the home sites. Next is Falcon Ridge, Red Hawk and Arrowhead. The sections of the Ridges that offer the highest elevations are found in Rim Rock and Promontory Ridge. Those enclaves border the mountains at the highest points. Inside Promontory Ridge, one finds Promontory Pointe where homes offer the highest elevations and some of the best views in all of the Valley.
Owners in the Ridges enjoy a beautiful setting that feels removed from the busy Strip but it's only a 15-20 minute drive on the 215 Beltway. The new regional mall in Summerlin is only 5 minutes away, along with Red Rock Station Casino, shopping, restaurants and all the amenities Summerlin offers. In addition, the monthly HOA fees include use of the private, Club Ridges. This is an exceptional facility that offers a full gym, locker rooms, pools and a tennis club that was voted "Best in Las Vegas".
