A gated community located just 25-minutes northwest of downtown Las Vegas, Nevada, Silverstone Ranch has much to offer prospective residents. Built in 2006, the enclave was originally designed around a 27-hole golf course. That course has been closed since September 2015, and its future is uncertain. However, at this time the land remains for the use of the community, which has been organized and vocal about protecting the rights of homeowners in the vicinity. Silverstone Ranch is in the Northwest in zip code 89131.
Many of the spacious homes at Silverstone Ranch feature charming Southwestern design accents such as stucco exteriors and ceramic tile roofs. Most offer comforts such as private 2-car garages, elegant master suites, fireplaces, breakfast bars and covered patios amidst desert landscaping. Looking for an affordable yet luxurious retirement community? Silverstone Ranch might fit the bill. Quiet and relaxed, the area might also work for professionals working in the Southwest tech corridor or young families needing space to stretch out. Security is assured and the living is good in this corner of a lively and naturally stunning part of the Southwest.
In addition to all the entertainment and amenities of Las Vegas itself (a straight shot on Highway 95), directly northwest of the neighborhood is the expansive Floyd Lamb Park, centered around Tule Springs, a series of small lakes that form an oasis in this part of the Mojave Desert. The park features equestrian activities at The Ranch (which runs the acclaimed Horses4Heroes program) and a weekly outdoor farmer’s market. Other community amenities include greenbelts, walking trails, picnic areas and tennis courts.
