Summerlin. The finest of Las Vegas housing and communities.
Situated to the Western portion of Las Vegas, Summerlin has a fascinating past and a scintillating future. Summerlin houses run the gamut from starter condominiums to luxury, palatial estates.
1952, the reclusive millionaire Howard Hughes bought a 25,000 acre parcel of land for a reportedly $3 per acre for the purposes of relocating his California businesses to Las Vegas. Named after the grandmother of Howard Hughes, Jean Amelia Summerlin, the parcel sat empty for decades after Hughes decided against moving his businesses here. The Summa Corporation (organized by the heirs of Howard Hughes) started plans to develop the vast land in 1988.
As of this writing, there are over two dozen commercial and residential villages with approximately 100,000 residents in the Summerlin area and there are still nearly 6,000 acres left to develop. With the finest of not only housing, but also amenities like premier shopping, dining, casinos, theaters, parks and even a state-of-the-art baseball park, Summerlin contains the best of everything.
Due to its slightly higher elevation, Summerlin is often a few degrees cooler than the remainder of the Las Vegas valley. This makes it even more ideal for outdoor activities.
