I've always preferred the drive in - either way - from the south, or even nicer imho, coming in from the north (I15). Spectacular. At night of course!

They had a mix of large formal dining rooms, sitting / lounge areas in huge masters, and sometimes even a sitting room on the main floor - all things my 70-year-old aunt loves and all things I consider a total waste of good space. I love what Pardee is doing, Lennar is our builder and has some other great communities, of course my favorite builder is Blue Heron, but Toll Brothers isnít for me.

I have probably 330 degree view thanks to a rooftop deck in an already built-out area. It is amazing. I never get tired of it. I love the "neon", but the mountains are soothing--the sunrises and sunsets are breathtaking.

The price for a lot premium for an unobstructed strip view was not worth it for me. We ended up paying a lot premium for backing up to the mountain and it creates a much better sense of privacy not having anyone look into your main living area or backyard.

Thatís exactly what I thought when I noticed places like Axis had $250-650K lot premiums for Strip views, but The Canyons had a house half-way into construction with a perfect Strip view, nothing in front of it and stunning panoramic view of the Valley for a $10,000 lot premium. I was so blown away, which is why I signed the paperwork that day. I wonder if there are other deals out there like that. I couldnít understand why they wouldnít mark it up more, but I did hear that after that they were raising prices on Strip view lots.

I would have a Strip view if there wasn't a mountain in the way, but being 13 miles away to the southeast I don't think we could see much.

We have mountain views from all sides and that's fine I guess. Having a view wasn't very high on my list when we bought the place. Getting a nice house in a nice neighborhood was more important.

Thanks for the list. I like Pardee too. I've watched so many Chakits Krulsawat's videos on YouTube touring modern homes in Las Vegas that I've lost track of who's who. It's house porn. Toll Brothers is all that's offered in Skye Canyon for modern home design, and they haven't presented what they're offering there yet but it's coming soon. I hope they get more in the way of modern homes to choose from in the Northwest for our commute. Otherwise, it's going to be Summerlin but that's alright too. I like Ironwood and The Cliffs so far that I recall. They have the city/Strip view with mountains backyard. I'd have to go back again and write names down for the rest. Henderson definitely has the best modern homes for the money but I can't justify the work commute all the way North for a house out there all the way SE. Unless he finishes that year of training elsewhere and starts working at Sunrise or somewhere south. Then we might consider it.
