OAKLAND, CALIF. – International award-winning firm KTGY Architecture + Planning reports that the firm’s residential designs at two brand new neighborhoods by Toll Brothers in The Cliffs village of Summerlin, Granite Heights and Ironwood, have been selling at a brisk pace. Ironwood opened their models on June 8, 2017, and they have already sold 16 homes. The models at Granite Heights opened a week later, and the team has had 14 sales to date. Toll Brothers Group President Gary Mayo says that interest has been very strong for these contemporary home designs in the newly-selling Cliffs village and expects sales to continue at a good pace based on visitors to the community.
The Cliffs village is located in the prestigious Summerlin Master Plan in Las Vegas and is named for the picturesque cliffs and ridgeline that form its spectacular backdrop. According to Bill Ramsey, AIA, a principal in KTGY’s Oakland, Calif., office, “The homes at Ironwood and Granite Heights have exquisite views of the valley, The Strip and the Spring Mountains and blend with the environment.”
Both communities are built along a steep hillside that faces approximately 30-degrees away from the Las Vegas Strip. “Providing views and outdoor spaces to enjoy them was a priority when designing these homes,” said Ramsey. “This drove the decision to terrace the homes following the natural contours of the slope as well as rotating the rooms along the rear of the home 30-degrees to orientate the great room, kitchen, loggia and the master bedroom toward The Strip. We also have single-loaded streets so that many homeowners are able to have an unobstructed view.”
The homes feature a collection of single-story open floor plans that offer multiple outdoor spaces including; enclosed front courtyards, covered rear loggias and private outdoor spaces off the master suite. Floor to ceiling windows with ceiling heights ranging between 10-16′ with transom windows in the raised areas let an abundance of natural light in. The project sits at the highest allowable point within The Cliffs which is located at the bottom of Red Rock National Park. This strategic placement means permanent open space with no chance of development behind Ironwood or Granite Heights, Ramsey noted.
“In addition to the permanent open space abutting the neighborhoods, a Paseos walking path sits between the neighborhoods, connecting both to the Summerlin trail system, future Oak Leaf Park, and the numerous recreational opportunities that the Master Plan is known for,” Mayo added. “The home designs paired with this location and amenities promise to be a success.”
Stretching south of Bishop Gorman High School near the southernmost tip of the community, The Cliffs village is on Hualapai Way near the 215 Beltway for easy access to all points in the valley, including McCarran International Airport, the Strip and Downtown Summerlin, which features fashion, dining, entertainment, Red Rock Resort and the future National Hockey League practice facility for the Vegas Golden Knights.
A Cliffs village address comes standard with all that Summerlin offers, including nearly two dozen village parks, resident exclusive community centers and pools, 150-plus miles of interconnected trails and two dozen public and private schools, including a new public elementary school — Shelley Berkley Elementary School that is opening in August for the 2017-2018 school year.
In addition to Ironwood and Granite Heights, KTGY has designed many residential communities in the Las Vegas market for Toll Brothers including award-winning Regency at Summerlin, Toll Brothers’ first Active Adult Community in the Las Vegas market, and the first age-qualified, single-family neighborhood to open in Las Vegas in 15 years.
