“The rotated floor plan is unique and it really worked; it creates interesting and dynamic interiors,” said Lisa Kaplan, marketing manager for Toll Brothers. “Large windows and tri-fold glass doors line the rear of the homes, enhancing the views of The Strip from the great room and master.”
The landscape is an extension of the homes in these communities and an integral part of the design. Both neighborhoods feature multiple, distinctive outdoor living spaces, each with their own unique contour and character thanks to the inventive rotation of the floor plan. Enclosed front courtyards, covered rear loggias, as well as more secluded, ‘pocket’ outdoor areas along the sides of the home create intimate spaces for a master suite or den and include multiple seating areas, BBQs, and wet bars to help create continuity between inside and out. With the addition of Infinity edge pools and spas, the outdoor living area is transformed into a personal retreat that anyone would be excited to share with friends and family, should they so choose.
Integral to the neighborhoods’ success was ensuring they were in sync with other neighborhoods in the master planned community, ensuring harmony throughout the development. KTGY used a mix of three architectural styles: contemporary, desert contemporary, and high plains, with the option of using flat and shed roofs with stone, bronze, rusted metal, wood tiling, and plaster. All options supported the effort to create a rustic and warm, yet modern home that syncs with The Cliff’s village’s ‘rugged contemporary’ style. Unfinished concrete sonotube columns added a characteristic unique to the neighborhood.
“By stepping outside of typical comfort zones, we worked together to create a truly unique neighborhood,” said Ramsey. “This required close coordination between Toll Brothers, KTGY, the civil engineer, and the landscape architect. All parties played vital roles in creating this fantastic result.”
Following these two successes at The Cliffs village, KTGY and Toll Brothers will add another community to Summerlin, Stonebridge. Although no official plans have been released, the project will showcase one-story homes with an optional second-floor living tucked away within the plan. In addition to Stonebridge, KTGY will be partnering with other builders, too, working to spread their enhanced style savvy to many other projects within Summerlin, Henderson, and Las Vegas.
