If you love Las Vegas so much that you would like to, live there, you are not alone but fortunately there are plenty of properties available to buy in the area. When youreview las vegas luxury properties you will see that many of them are located in one or other of the communities that make up the Summerlin development. The Summerlin development is a huge project based in the mountains along the Las Vegas Valley, close to the Red Rock Conservation Area, which includes about a dozen residential communities. As these communities were designed for family living, they are all luxurious and offer a great place for a relaxing in a secure residence. All the communities have guarded gates at the entrance for added privacy and security and most have their own recreational facilities. Several of the communities have their own golf courses and the one at The Ridges was designed by Jack Nicklaus whilst the one at Lake Las Vegas has also won awards. These communities do not just offer golf as a recreational activity though as they are all connected to each other by hiking trails and these hiking trails also venture as far as to join the 18 mile trail around the Red Rock Conservation Area. If that isn’t enough hiking for you, these trails also connect to 2000 miles of more trails and so is one of the largest trail systems in the South Western United States. Some of the communities offer still more amenities such as The Ridges which has been recognised as one of the best places to live in America. This community has a club that besides having the jack Nicklaus golf course also has a fitness centre with the latest state of the art equipment, a gymnasium and a spa. If, as well as a love for Las Vegas, you also like the laid back atmosphere of the Mediterranean, Lake Las Vegas may be the place for you. In the centre of this community, as a meeting place, an old world, Italian, Mediterranean village was built. Named MonteLago Village, this meeting place has cobbled streets, piazzas and waterfront restaurants and cafes. As the community was built around a private lake 320 acres in size, it also offers boating and other water based activities or recreation. Perhaps the most exclusive and most expensive community is that of The Pointe located just above The Ridges in the mountains. This gated community has only 12 expensive but very lavish and luxurious homes which all offer spectacular views of the entire Las Vegas Valley including the city, as well as some spectacular mountain scenery. Although these 12 homes may be valued in the millions of dollars, other communities offer homes with a price tag as low as $200,000 and so there is a home available in one of these communities for most budgets, allowing people to enjoy the pleasures Las Vegas has to offer, without having to wait for a vacation or free weekend.
