Home Feature - Winter 2014-Rhodes Ranch

At Home in the Desert

Rhodes Ranch is a luxurious oasis

Story by Kim Cooper Findling

If there is one thing that the gorgeous community of Rhodes Ranch is known best for, it’s as an oasis in the desert. This luxury neighborhood in southwest Las Vegas has been recognized as a wonderful lush and luxurious residence since the Rhodes Ranch public golf course was installed in 1997. Shortly thereafter, neighborhoods were under construction and folks began moving in. Many of the home-sites in the master-planned community are currently built out, and 3000 residents now live happily in Rhodes Ranch. But many more home-sites remain, and resale homes are also available.

Ryan Soucie, director of sales for Dunhill Homes, developer of Rhodes Ranch, says that now is an excellent time to take the opportunity build a new home in this fabulous gated community. “We have more space to build,” says Soucie. “We have maybe five more years worth of home sites to sell.”

While many companies sell homes, Soucie explains that what Rhodes Ranch actually offers buyers is an all-encompassing lifestyle. The signature centerpiece of this lifestyle is the multimillion-dollar recreation center at Rhodes Ranch, known as The R Club. This 35,000 square foot center offers a full size gymnasium, a full indoor basketball court, a cardio/weight room, aerobics room, arts and crafts room, billiards room, and multi purpose rooms, as well as a social area that features a baby grand piano, accordion, and a large fireplace along with couches, tables and chairs. A variety of group classes are offered, including stretch and flexibility training, boot camp, total body conditioning, zumba, tai chi, yoga for kids and kids fitness training.

Also at The R Club are four tennis courts, basketball, beach volleyball, a playground, racquetball courts, a giant lagoon pool, a lap pool, three spas and an amazing water park. The total result is an amazing recreational destination, private to the community and welcoming to all residents. “The recreation center is a real draw for families especially,” says Soucie, noting that many residences find most of their recreation needs met right within the boundaries of their neighborhood. “In the summer, kids enjoy eight different waterslides without the lines they would find at a commercial water park.”

Then there is the overall feeling of a lush green oasis. The Rhodes Ranch golf course is what anchors this feeling at Rhodes Ranch. The neighborhood was built and designed around course. Designed by renowned architect Ted Robinson, the 6,909-yard course presents a unique blend of challenge and playability to golfers of all skill levels, highlighted by a group of par threes. “The course provides a world class golf experience in lush tropical surroundings,” says Soucie. All of Rhodes Ranch, in fact, is lush and green. The property is thick with palm trees, lakes, elaborate landscaping and lots of grass. “The entire neighborhood is very lush, very green,” says Soucie.

Dunhill Homes has created a wide range of lovely home plans for buyers to choose from. A variety of flexible floor plans and meticulously crafted interiors are matched by an unbeatable value in home pricing. Charming courtyards, spacious floor plans, gourmet kitchens and dramatic Rhodes Ranch golf course views are just some of the design amenities available.

In addition, unlike other master-planned communities, Rhodes Ranch has no extra land improvement fees. “The square footage of the homes range from 1,751 to 3,649 square feet and the price range is from the mid-200’s to the low 400’s,” says Soucie. “With all the amenities included with the purchase of a home, Rhodes Ranch is truly the best value in Las Vegas.” The neighborhood has attracted many families of all varieties. “There is a home to suit every family’s needs. We have second home buyers, first-time buyers, retirees and families in Rhodes Ranch.”

With two entrances, both of which are protected by a 24-hour guarded gate and beautifully landscaped, you’ll always feel content to arrive home at Rhodes Ranch. Located at the base of Spring Mountain, just minutes from downtown and the Las Vegas Strip, Rhodes Ranch offers easy access to major travel routes and all the excitement Las Vegas has to offer. The 215 Beltway is just up the street, connecting to many destinations throughout the Valley. The airport is only 15 minutes away. Many schools both public and private are nearby, as well as a wide choice of excellent shopping.
