William Lyon Homes: luxury living for all household styles

When it comes to experiencing the alluring lifestyle overlooking the greens of a golf course, a hefty household income isn’t necessarily a must-have.

Nestled within the wide-open range of the Mountain Falls Golf Course, William Lyon Homes’ Mountain Falls community presents a range of new and affordable homes.

As the only master planned community in Pahrump, Mountain Falls offers homebuyers two series of living spaces that incorporate a small-town feel while being only 40 minutes away from the Durango and Blue Diamond area within Las Vegas.

“People think of us as the jewel of the desert and the jewel community of Pahrump,” says Deborah Davis, sales agent for Mountain Falls Series I and II. “Not only are we one of the only communities in Pahrump on city water and sewer rather than standard well and septic, we are affordable and offer amenities such as a private fitness and resident center, two pools, a Jacuzzi, a restaurant, and many mini parks.”

With an 18-hole, par 72 course, running through the middle of the community, Mountain Falls’ homes are a reasonable series of single-story collections, starting at $154,000 for their Series I collection and $221,000 for their Series II collection.

“Mountain Falls definitely fills a need in Vegas for families who couldn’t afford a nice golf-course lifestyle in the city,” says Davis. “We are an affordable way to live the golf course life. You get a lot of value for your money. 

While the developers of William Lyon Homes have successfully built an affordable, golf course community, their developments are far from stopping there.

For those looking to settle closer to the Las Vegas area, William Lyons Homes offers an assortment of communities within the city as well. These include Tuscan Cliffs, Lago Vista, and their most popular developments at Sterling Ridge, all of which range in styles, locations and values for an array of homebuyers.

Within Southern Highlands, the Tuscan Cliffs development offers Mediterranean inspired design styles, and, as an added perk for homebuyers, includes a social membership to the Southern Hills Golf Club.

Each home of Tuscan Cliffs offers two-story layouts with over 4,000 square feet of living area in the low $700,000 range.

In addition to the individual properties, the community itself caters to families of all sizes, with a multitude of parks and recreation outlets both family and pet-friendly.

For more of an oasis feel, those looking to grab a lakeside property can do so in Lago Vista, which offers over 4,000 and 5,000 square foot properties with a resort-inspired oasis located in the newly renovated and expanding community of Lake Las Vegas. The Lake Las Vegas area, after previous closings, is reviving itself with new businesses and attractions, and for new home buyers it’s a chance to move in while the community continues to progress.

These contemporary, two-story homes range from the high $800,000’s to low $900,000’s and are within the vicinity of dining and shops in Montelago Village, and private lake access.

With two-story homes and predesigned layouts to choose from as well as an option for building one of their predesigns from the ground up, Lago Vista offers exquisite living in a move-in ready arrangement or a possibility for ultimate personalization opportunities.

“Standing on the back deck over looking the lake is just breathtaking,” says Kim Chitwood, director of marketing for William Lyon Homes. “It’s a destination unlike anything here in the valley.”

Moving away from the water and back to the west side of town, another community offers an additional contemporary style home, and is one of William Lyon Homes’ most popular properties.

The Grand and Premier Collections at Sterling Ridge, located near Bears Best Golf Course within The Ridges of Summerlin, is a collection of the developer’s most prestigious residences, beginning in the high $800,000’s and reaching over $1 million. These one and two-story designs range from approximately 3,546 to 4,871 square feet and include an abundance of luxury architectural sophistication.

Whether it’s their affordable desert jewels located in Pahrump or their lavish residences on the outskirts of Las Vegas, William Lyon Homes seeks to build homes for every style and budget.

“We look for unique land acquisitions, ones that range from affordable homes in the $100,000 and $200,000 range to more luxury estates that reach over $1 million,” says Chitwood. “We aren’t just a cookie cutter builder for only one demographic. We offer a variety of products for everybody.”

In addition to company longevity of approximately 60 years, communities that expand across six states and a high level of quality and customer service, William Lyon Homes also offers peace of mind. The company also offers a three-year-warranty on all home purchases.

From Pahrump to Lake Las Vegas, the William Lyon Homes developers have and continue to build developments that incorporate the lush and unique settings throughout Southern Nevada for any household to enjoy.
