Welcome to Summerlin
A lively collection of modern upscale communities close to the Vegas Strip
Nestled between the edge of Spring Mountains and Red Rock Canyon to the west, Summerlin splits the difference between the official city limits of Las Vegas and the nearby encompassing Clark County. Replete with a top-rated outdoors scene, luxurious living, and an emphasis placed on lifestyle, the centrally-located Summerlin appeals to young professionals, couples, and families alike.
In the early 1950s, entertainment mogul Howard Hughes purchased land in the area that would become Summerlin. After his death in 1976, the land slowly began to circle talks of development until the late 1980s, when the ground was officially broken, and the area became the master-planned community well-beloved today by many, named Summerlin, after Howard Hughes’ paternal grandmother.
Developed with an eye for environmentally sound planning, community engagement, and upscale options, Summerlin is an inspiring sanctuary of new construction, love for the outdoors, and family living. With fifty home plans by ten different builders throughout all the neighborhoods of Summerlin, choosing your dream home has never been simpler. The Ridges in Summerlin offers over 700 acres of guard-gated residential living, while a homesite, The Summit secures a spot at Las Vegas’ only private residential lifestyle club and community. Completed single-family homes, estates, and more, Summerlin creates a perfect destination for modern life.
