The Howard Hughes Corporation Announces New Custom Home Neighborhood in The Riges at Summerlin
The Howard Hughes Corporation®, developer of the Summerlin® master-planned community, announces the opening of Talon Ridge, the newest and ninth custom home neighborhood in The Ridges, a 793-acre exclusive, guard-gated residential village and home to Jack Nicklaus’ Bear’s Best golf course.
Talon Ridge, located along the southeast edge of The Ridges, features 17 custom homesites ranging from one-quarter to one-third acre and priced from the $400,000s. It is the last custom home neighborhood to take shape in The Ridges, a village that is home to many of the valley’s influencers, captains of industry, celebrities and leaders.
Currently, six custom neighborhoods in The Ridges are sold out, while two actively selling neighborhoods, Azure and Indigo, offer lots from one-quarter to more than one acre with only 23 homesites remaining in both neighborhoods.
There are many reasons why The Ridges in Summerlin is the literal pinnacle of luxury living in Las Vegas, according to Kevin T. Orrock, President, Summerlin. “The Ridges’ elevation at 4,000 feet above sea level is twice the height of the top of the Stratosphere Tower,” said Orrock. “As one of the city’s most scenic spots, The Ridges delivers consistently cooler temperatures, offers expansive and commanding views of the entire valley and provides sanctuary and privacy via its protected location and guard-gated security.”
Named by Forbes.com in 2003 as the third most exclusive gated community in America, The Ridges has continued to unfold in keeping with that distinction. Today, The Ridges is home to more than 300 completed custom homes of which the majority are primary residences, ensuring a year-round vibrancy often missing from other luxury communities. Nearly 25 additional custom homes are under design or construction throughout the village.
At the center of The Ridges is Bear’s Best Las Vegas, a Jack Nicklaus-designed golf course that features replications of his most famous holes from courses throughout the southwest. Club Ridges, a private health, fitness, tennis and swim facility, is for the exclusive use of Ridges’ residents and their guests.
Located high above the Las Vegas Valley, where Desert Inn Road meets the mountains, The Ridges is aptly named. The area’s dramatic rocky ridges and nearby Red Rock Canyon form the foundation of the community’s elegant design aesthetic while creating a stunning backdrop that’s impossible to replicate in Southern Nevada. Today, The Ridges is one of the most spectacular custom home sites in Las Vegas.
Homes in The Ridges are required to embody the community’s desert contemporary style and design guidelines, ensuring consistency and quality throughout. Yet, creativity is beautifully and uniquely expressed in the designs of the region’s premier architects.
Situated along an elevated ridge on the Las Vegas Valley’s western edge, The Ridges at Summerlin boasts some of the most stunning desert contemporary architecture in the valley, according to Orrock. Views from The Ridges are exceptional from sunrise to sunset and encompass both the glittering Las Vegas Strip and the dramatic rocky ridgeline that forever protects The Ridges from future development. Starry, starry nights are another benefit to living in The Ridges because lighting is kept to a minimum to mitigate light pollution and increase visibility of the night-time sky. A true sanctuary, The Ridges is a world apart from the hustle of the city, yet it’s only a short 20-minute drive from the excitement of the Las Vegas Strip.
