And yet, should the urge arise for some weekend entertainment, a short drive along I-95 puts a homeowner in the middle of The Strip’s enchanting energy and lasting memories.
Throughout the world, Las Vegas has evolved into a buzz word for nightlife and bustle. The exotic entertainment industry brings in participants from every country. The now household idiom, “What happens in Vegas stays in Vegas” has become symbolic of a place pleasant to visit but not to live. Fortunately, in recent years, communities surrounding the heartthrob of The Strip have developed unique personalities. In particular, in the past 10-15 years, this area has witnessed exponential growth and still attracts house-hunters every year.
This section escapes the ever-hectic phenomenon that is Las Vegas while still being located within a convenient 40-minute radius. It’s considered the area pitted west of Route 95 and north of Cheyenne Avenue. Nuzzled up against the foothills, living in northwest Las Vegas means large homes with unique identities, plus plenty of outdoor activities to keep you occupied.
Painted Desert Homes 89149
Painted Desert, a gated golf community offers a luxurious retreat from work. Also, the burgeoning, new Town Center runs along both sides of Route 95 and includes stores, shops, restaurants, automobile dealers–businesses of all types. Condos and apartments also continue to sprout up alongside Route 95, rising out of thousands of acres of desert.
Due to the banning of strip malls north of Cheyenne Avenue, the area is predominantly residential–single family homes, both currently under development and previously built by custom home builders. A vast majority of the houses have been constructed within the last 15 years and offer large lots, often spanning a half acre or more. Less populated than Summerlin to the south, and far enough from The Strip and downtown to feel like a real escape from the city.
Lone Mountain Homes 89149
Lone Mountain rests on the west side of an isolated peak named Lone Mountain and has many new homes in the development. The homes are production homes and offer smaller lots than the area average. Lone Mountain encircles the 215 Beltway and offers beautiful sights of La Madre Mountain further west.
Part of the far northwest — north of Alexander and west of the 95 freeway — is zoned as horse property. The houses are spacious custom homes, and lots for sale are significantly larger than those in the rest of the area. A half acre lot is average though more significant land areas are typical. The area also includes riding stables for people who want to keep a horse for riding but not on their property.
Desert Shores Homes 89128
Another neighborhood, Desert Shores, has recently been named one of the hottest neighborhoods in America. The Desert Shores community surrounds four man-made lakes and offers affordable lakeside homes, townhouses, and condos. The water is restricted to quiet boats only, jetting off from small docks for a comfortable, getaway experience. The gated Desert Shores Racquet Club also offers lakefront properties and a small complex of condos. Sandy beaches are scattered throughout the Desert Shores district, interspersed between endless walking and biking paths. And, should the summer heat become too much, the Mt. Charleston ski resort is a mere half hour drive away.
Centennial Hills 89149
Centennial Hills is located far north of the strip and yet still offers a surprisingly beautiful view of the city because of its higher elevation. Out here is original horse territory and you will still find roads for horses and land built with horse specifically in mind. Also, no matter what your budget is, there is a home out here for you. Whether you are a millionaire or just starting out in life there is a property that you can find and love and call your own in Centennial Hills Real Estate.
