Summerlin is a master planned community within the city of Las Vegas. Located on west side of Las Vegas boarding the Red Rock Canyon National Conservation area. Summerlin is one of the most well known master planned communities in all of Las Vegas with over 100,000 residents. Many people assume that Summerlin is actually its own city. Although it consists of over 22,000 acres of land and more than 40,000 homes so far (scheduled for 80,000 homes eventually); Summerlin is technically just a large master planned community. It stretches from Cheyenne to the north to beyond the 215 beltway to the south. Numerous home builders have constructed homes in this community since the early 1990’s and continue to build new homes currently. Summerlin has more than 9 golf courses, over 26 schools, over 150 parks, over 100 miles of walking trails, and over 20 sub communities within Summerlin. Summerlin was formally owned by the late Howard Hughes where the name was originated (Hughes grandmothers name was Jean Summerlin).
Summerlin has consistently lived up to its highly regarded reputation by maintaining top honors as one of the top 10 master planned communities in the nation. Summerlin is a true example of how a master planned community should be. The Summerlin lifestyle brings everything within reach. You have brand new Resort Hotel/Casinos, Shopping, Parks & Recreation, Trails, premier Golf Courses, fine Restaurants, Community Centers, evenly mixed housing communities ranging from custom homes to condominiums, and breathtaking views of the entire Las Vegas valley. It is no wonder why so many people have called Summerlin home for the past two decades.
