Outside of Sunny Las Vegas, Mountain's Edge, One of the State's Fastest Growing Master Planned Comuniities, Has a Wide Range of Neighborhoods and Floor Plans
Tucked in the southwestern corner of the Las Vegas Valley, Mountain's Edge is a cluster of neighborhoods in Enterprise, Nevada. Construction on the 3,500-acre master planned community started in 2004. The local developer, Focus Property Group, originally planned for 14,500 homes and 22 neighborhoods. Development slowed in 2008, but Mountain's Edge has recovered nicely and is one of the fastest selling master planned community's in the state. At build-out, it should contain 12,500 residential units.
Mountain's Edge is part of Focus Group's New SouthwestTM. As such, it became the region's first drought-tolerant community. Unlike traditional grass sod, the community's rich variety of desert landscaping conserves water. Thoughtfully-placed trees and shrubs help lower local temperatures. Builders attracted to this progressive design include Richmond, D.R. Horton, Pulte, Lennar, Ryland, and KB Homes. The community has a variety of floor plans, including single-story plans, which are perfect for people no longer interested in climbing stairs.
Many of Ryland's homes have rooftop decks. Lennar's Monterey Ranch has a community gate, pool, and park. KB Homes have energy saving features like radiant roof barriers and low-e windows. Most residences include two- to three-car garages. Prices start in the mid-$200,000s. Please check with a Realtor to verify these prices as they may change.
The community is just a short drive from McCarran International Airport and the lights, entertainment, and dining of the Las Vegas strip. Mountain's Edge is also adjacent to the hiking, biking, and climbing available at Mount Charleston and the Red Rock Canyon National Conservation Area. Clark County is developing a regional park in the area.
Mountain's Edge maintains its own parks as well. Nathaniel Jones Park has basketball courts and a splash pad. Exploration Peak Park features a 2,846-foot-tall mountain, bicycle trails, panoramic views, and an amphitheater. Because of the park's proximity to the Old Spanish Trail, Exploration Peak also features an Old West replica town. The park is the home for community events, including Country in the Park, an annual music festival.
A Master Association and a management company both help control a burgeoning network of offices, restaurants, neighborhood shops, walking trails, dog runs, and open spaces. Not only does the Master Association sponsor events open to the entire Las Vegas Valley, but it also offers activities designed specifically for its member residents. Among the list of diversions are community garage sales, landscaping demonstrations, and gardening demonstrations.
Enterprise is an uncorporated town but is really a Vegas suburb. Most homes actually have a Las Vegas address. The community does not have a hospital of its own, but Vegas has several hospitals that are accredited.
Couched in the Mojave Desert's higher elevations, the Las Vegas Valley and Mountain's Edge can experience drastic temperature changes from day to night and season to season. Summer temperatures average in the high-90s, while winter temperatures can be as chilly as the low-40s. The valley's annual rainfall usually averages at less than five inches.
