Flanked by MacDonald Highlands, the numerous communities within Green Valley may differ in some ways, but one thing they all have in common is their commitment to family-oriented, lush living.
The first-ever master-planned community in all of Southern Nevada, Green Valley was founded in 1978 by America Nevada Corporation and has been bursting with the gentle buzz of a graceful lifestyle ever since, even as newer communities developed within its borders. One of these newer communities, Green Valley Ranch, is rated the best neighborhood in all of Henderson, while the streets in Green Valley South are lined with verdant foliage and sumptuous landscapes, perfectly complimenting the history of Green Valley.
Today, Green Valley offers everything from elegant gated communities to the cheerful, close-knit community of Green Valley North. With that in mind, it’s no wonder Green Valley is home to a wealth of home styles, though they typically range from estates to single-family homes in Spanish and ranch styles, defined by charming stucco walls and tile roofs. Enchanted by Green Valley’s short commute time, a treasure trove of amenities, emphasis on lifestyle, and city skyline views, many young professionals and families are proud to call Green Valley their home.
Residential properties can be found on 775 acres while 310 acres are set aside for retail, medical, and a resort hotel. The remaining 200 acres provide recreation amenities. The community is designed to complement its natural desert surroundings. Palm tree-lined streets lead to homes that feature stucco and tile roofs. Around 4,000 homes and condominiums in Green Valley Ranch range in price from the upper $100,000’s to over $2 million.
