The Ridges- Considered the crown jewel of Summerlin
Las Vegas is more than the glitz and glamor of the Strip…just outside its billions of luminescent lightbulbs lies a quiet, private gated community with recreational opportunities and luxurious amenities- inside and outside the home- that allow residents to live in comfort and style. On lots that average around half an acre (some that go up to 3.4 acres), custom one and two-story homes have been built with over-the-top features and functionality with views overlooking the Vegas Strip and Red Rock Canyon just 15 minutes away from the Summerlin area. It’s common to see sprawling 3-6-bedroom homes in this neighborhood with their own swimming pools, courtyards, timeless desert landscaping, gigantic kitchens, and privacy. A few homes even have awe-inspiring adornments such as dining rooms with live edge wooden tables that seat 12 people next to a floor-to-ceiling refrigerated wine cellar, home theaters, and brand new energy appliances that help with effortless entertaining. Besides the jaw-dropping architectural designs of homes within The Ridges, many people who enjoy hitting the links are attracted to the Bear’s Best Golf Course. Designed by Jack Nicklaus- fondly known as “The Bear”- this 18-hole layout comprised of bent grass, black sand bunkers, and 147-slope make it challenging for even the most proficient golfers. While not out swinging the clubs, residents also like to hang out at the Bear’s Den BBQ or indulge in a moderately-priced Chicken Sandwedge after their round. For those that enjoy being in the outdoors, the Red Rock Canyon National Conservation Area is a colorful desert oasis that provides over 30 miles of hiking trails and rock-climbing opportunities. There are also more than one hundred parks within the Summerlin area with miles and miles of hiking trails looping through it. As many people know, the temperatures in the Mojave Desert and Las Vegas are hot and dry which is perfect for those who are attracted to the sunshine. While the weather can top 100 degrees Fahrenheit in the summers, it also rarely drops below freezing in the winter months so that you can play golf practically year-round.
