I completely agree with you regarding the large backyards where you can build your private pool etc... and on the top of that I wanted it to be gated...
You cannot even find something like that in Summerlin or Spring Valley at all..

Thanks for the update and sharing your experience!
I am not sure if part of 89129 is in summerlin, in any case much of it is in lone mountain.
I think LVMensch will know more about this...


We hear the birds singing and little rabbits are coming to eat at our front yard. Lot of hummingbirds in our backyard too. Very relaxed living over here, but still very close to everything.

We use Cheyenne to access the freeway and it works great already. But you are in couple of min, e.g. at Tivoli village, or Downtown Summerlin. It is all very close.


Touchstoneliving is building lot of new houses here. http://www.touchstoneliving.com
There are also some very nice houses on the market.

That is simply the RJ's neighborhood section (The View) distribution. Summerlin stops at Cheyenne. Summerlin is actually a set of master plans with a central manager. Lone Mountain is a couple of different things...It is a town in unincorporated Clark County - which includes most of 89129 and 89149 and parts of 89143, 89166 and 89131. May even be a couple of isolated islands in other zips. It is also an RNP (Rural Neighborhood Preserve) in 89129 and 89149. It is also a mountain standing all alone with a nice set of county parks at the base.

One of the biggest land deals in a long time. 3 builders have bought land all the way to the limit where Las Vegas meets the Paiute reservation. 600+ acres purchased. 3000+ homes slated to be built.

Here is the timeline for completing the interchanges at 215/95(Centennial Bowl).

Summerlin was good access when 215 didn't exist. Times have changed. Far NW is a 40 min + drive in rush hour to work downtown and that is why development has been slower. That said, its not a bad area.

Summerlin is aging. Outdated strip-malls, outdated housing. No energy efficient features. Dying golf courses.


hmmmmmmmm
I have no idea where you get ideas like this lol. Summerlin isn't "aging," it's the newest and most affluent area of Las Vegas. The development of Summerlin won't even be completed until 2029 and it has half the population that's planned for the area.

Let's be honest, if most people had the money, there's no way they'd be anywhere but Summerlin or maybe Macdonald Highlands in Henderson, they'd certainly not be stuck in a row home somewhere.

I also have no clue where these people are finding houses in Summerlin for $400,000, they must be really lousy, because you can barely find a lot for that price. Any decent home I've seen there is $750,000+ unless it's the oldest part of Summerlin, which isn't bad but isn't very desirable either. It's like buying into a poker game with the minimum buy-in. Yeah, you're in the game, but barely.

The bottom line in most markets in a big city is if you want any real space, you're looking at a custom home build and you'll need at least $3 million if not more to make that happen. Otherwise, even very nice $1M to $1.5M homes are usually semi-custom on decent but not big lots.

that's huge news. the influx of people will put a strain on schools, parks, stores etc.... in the area. Good thing the centennial bowl will be built by then. That is going to be such a awful commute (for residents) to go from that far north west to central parts of town/ the strip.

This was also a factor in why we are moving. 3000 homes could cause value to go flat or go down

Donít forget about the huge amount of homes to be built at Elhorn N Decatur all the way past Farm. And by the new 215 Revere exit. Itís going to get crowded very very fast

@airics - 3000 is about 2-3 weeks of inventory. Those houses aren't going to be available all at once, but be completed in phases. I'm sure there are other reasons motivating your decision.

Michael|2016, my husband and I retired to NW Las Vegas for many reasons. We found a house/property that we love, it's a custom home with a pool and front yard, RV parking, and no HOA fees at all. It's in Clark County in one of the pieces of the map that are adjacent to LV City, but not technically in it. Temperatures are significantly more moderate compared to the SE part of the Valley, and we made sure it's not on a flood plain or near the pig farm, etc etc. I've lived here only a few years, but have already seen an increase in housing developments all throughout the area, and I doubt if that will stop anytime soon. The area I'm in is fully developed (no chance of construction over my back fence), but there are checkerboard pieces that are open, empty lots, owned but not yet developed. No telling if or when those will be built. We have many very nice parks and lots of restaurants, shopping centers, service businesses, healthcare options, etc. The schools are okay. I can think of only one negative, and that's the lack of public transportation. As one realtor advised me when we were first looking, once you get on the Beltway, you can be almost anywhere in Greater Las Vegas in 30-40 minutes. When I lived in L.A., that was my one-way commute, so it's really no big deal getting to the airport or the Strip, or to museums, libraries, etc. Crime occurs everywhere, but can mostly be mitigated as long as reasonable safety and security measures are taken. We have a Neighborhood Watch group and we know and look out for all our neighbors. I hope this helps you.

of course, but when the homes at Decatur/elkhorn start getting built, its going to get crowded out here

going closer to my inlaws

and selling my home in 24hrs for 384k, when I paid 252 in 2008 also helps.....
