Las Vegas Master Planned Communities
What is a Master Planned Community? Usually found in warmer climates, they are large communities of new homes typically at least 1,000 acres in size with development and construction governed by specified standards of design and restrictions of land use. These communities offer recreational areas, golf courses and parks as well as schools, restaurants and shopping within the community. Clubhouses with pools and spas are part of the community package.
In a Master Planned Community, all of the amenities and conveniences are planned and included ahead of time and are often in place before homes are built.
To maintain the original master plan, builders are carefully selected with home designs continuously reviewed. There are a number of smaller similar type communities or subdivisions existing within the Master Planned Community providing potential buyers with a choice of home styles and prices.
Las Vegas offers a number of Master Planned Communities catering to individuals and families of various ages and life styles – with “something for everyone”.
This luxury low-density community just west of the Strip boasts 320 acres with only 507 homes and features custom houses, luxury condos and upscale tract homes. Long considered the “Jewel of Las Vegas”, this Master Planned Community is family friendly offering kids’ camps and kids’ nights.
Close to the Spring Mountains and Red Rock National Conservation Area, homes in Canyon Gate have spectacular views.
The 24 hour manned gatehouse assures privacy and security to the owners of homes ranging from the $500,000’s to over $5,000,000.
The Canyon Gate Country Club offers a magnificent golf course with a 160 acre fairway designed by Ted Robinson and provides traveling golfers privileges at 192 courses throughout the world. In addition to golf, the country club offers a number of amenities including gourmet dining, tennis and a state of the art fitness center.
In order to join this exclusive country club, your initiation fee will be $32,000 with approximately $500 in monthly dues.
Some of the amenities in this secluded community include five lighted tennis courts, an outdoor Jacuzzi and two outdoor pools and an indoor wet steam room.
This beautiful, picturesque and quiet Master Planned Community is unique in that it is built around five man-made lakes. Residents can enjoy boating, fishing and swimming in these lovely lakes which are home to ducks and swans.
This community was built in 1988 and includes 22 different residential districts with 3,351 units on 682 acres and offers residents a community clubhouse, a large swimming pool surrounded with a sand beach in the style of a lagoon and paddle boating on the lake.
Homes are available in Desert Shores from compact condos and medium priced homes to huge homes in their own gated areas. Some lakefront homes have small docks. At this time, prices in this popular community vary from the $90’s to $1 million and more.
