Toll Bros Luxury Homes in the Paseos of Summerlin
Toll Bros is now building single story luxury homes in the Paseos of Summerlin. Santaluz is a gated community, located just North of Paseo Park. It's in a beautiful desert setting with the Red Rock Canyon Conservation area next-door and less than 5 minutes to shopping, restaurants and all the amenities of Summerlin.
Toll Brothers has established itself as one of our most popular luxury home builders. Their homes are available in the resale market at several locations, including the nearby Red Rock Country Club. For those who prefer to start new and pick their own upgrades, the Santaluz community will not disappoint. Construction started in this subdivision a few months ago. Initially, the sales staff was operating out of a trailer. This past week they opened two model homes that are sure to Wow even the fussiest buyer. We were very impressed with the model homes. In fact, it would be difficult for us to decide which of the plans they have modeled that we would prefer. They both have beautiful features and you can see touches like the upgraded fireplace in the Messina that you can do with Toll Bros.
Three floor plans are available:
The largest of the models is the Trapani. From the moment you open the door of the model, you will feel the "Wow" factor. It has a large entry hall. Just off the entry hall is a hallway that leads to and office and two spacious bedrooms with a shared bath. This corner of the 2874 sf home is on the opposite corner from the master suite. A formal dining room is featured in this plan with windows that open onto a side courtyard and a butler's pantry leading to the kitchen.
The Trapani features a large great room with windows overlooking the covered patio and a pool sized backyard. The kitchen includes a large breakfast island with the laundry room conveniently located behind the cooking area on one side. On the other side is a huge walk in pantry. You'll want it finished like the kitchen in the model with built in wine rack, a butcher block work space and a built in wine cooler.
You won't be disappointed in the spacious master suite either. It features a view of the backyard, space for a retreat/sitting area. The master bath has a vanity with dual sinks, a 6' soaking tub and enclosed shower. This master includes a huge walk-in closet, the largest closest of the three homes available in Santaluz. In mid December, base prices for this home started at $570,995 for the Mission Elevation.
The Messina is the mid-sized home in the options. This home features a large courtyard entrance that is perfect for an outdoor sitting
area. The standard Messina model is 2684 sf with a 2 car garage plus a 1 car tandem garage. As you can see in the model of this plan, the tandem garage can be converted into a guest casita with a walk in closet and full bath. When the garage is converted into a casita, the home offers approximately 2900 sf of living space.
When you enter the front door, you're greeted with a beautiful den and an over-sized great room. In the model of this home, the great room features a wet bar. The standard home will have a closet where the wet bar is located. While the storage space is nice, we really like the way the wet bar leaves the room open so you have a view of the backyard from the moment you enter the home. Second and third bedrooms are at the front of the main home. They share a bath with dual sinks and a tub/shower combo.
The master suite is nicely arranged on this home. An entry hall leads past the master bath with dual sinks, deep soaking tub and enclosed shower. Add a large walk in closet and a spacious bedroom with room for a sitting area and access to the backyard. The base price of the Messina is currently starting at $550,995 for the Spanish Colonial elevation.
The Catania is the smallest of the homes offered with 2495 sf. This home features a 10 foot ceiling in the entry foyer. You'll enjoy a view of the backyard through the windows in the great room which comes with a covered patio as a standard. Kitchen features a breakfast island and walk in pantry. All three homes offer spacious master bedrooms with soaking tubs and glass enclosed showers in the master baths. The Catania isn't modeled. As of mid-December, the base price on this one starts at $525,995 with the Spanish Colonial Elevation.
