Las Vegas, Nevada (PRWEB) February 6, 2009
American West Homes in Las Vegas, Nevada grand opens Lexington in Highlands Ranch with prices starting as low as $188,950. Home shoppers looking for quality affordable homes need to look no further.
"American West Homes is excited to open our newest neighborhood, Lexington at Highlands Ranch. This neighborhood is just an extension of the quality homes that we have been building in Southern Nevada for 25 years. We are the only builder in Las Vegas that continues to open brand-new communities and the fact that we are doing it starting at $188,500 is unheard of these days," Larry Canarelli, president of American West Homes, said. "Lexington's two- and three-story designs will appeal to today's buyers who are seeking spacious and affordable new homes."
The two- and three-story designs measure from 1,216 to 2,189 square feet with starting prices ranging from $188,500 to $238,500. Three two-story floor plans are available, measuring 1,216, 1,486 and 1,641 square feet respectively. Each features three bedrooms, 2 ½ baths, a great-room design and a convenient second-floor laundry area.
A three-story design - The David - measures 2,188 square feet. This home features three bedrooms and 2 ½ baths with the option for a fourth bedroom and third bath located on the first floor. A huge family room which is something every family needs highlights the first floor. The main floor consists of a great room suitable for all your entertaining needs, dining room and gourmet kitchen with island. There is an option for a balcony located off the great room. The third floor consists of two bedrooms and the master suite with a spacious walk-in closet and luxurious master bath.
The homes are designed with desert living and energy efficiency in mind. "Our architects designed Lexington while considering the environment and energy conservation," Canarelli said. "Each home has received the designation of Energy Star Plus for meeting and exceeding efficiency requirements set by the Environmental Protection Agency by our inclusion of efficient building products. This rating means that each home at Lexington is at least 30 percent more energy efficient than current National Home Building Standards and 15% more energy efficient than homes that qualify only as Energy Star."
Energy-efficient features include a 14-SEER natural gas heat and electric central air-conditioning with Puron; radiant heat barrier roof sheathing; programmable setback thermostat; R-13 insulation in exterior walls and R-30 insulation in ceilings; Pro Installer E2S Complete Weatherproofing System; fiberglass front-entry door; vinyl-framed, dual-pane low-e windows and sliding glass door; 50-gallon quick-recovery natural gas water heater; and Super-Flow water management system.
"In addition to including these energy-efficient features in each home, home buyers will discover that many highly desired design features are included in each Lexington home that other builders may consider as 'upgrades,'" Canarelli said. "We are conscious to provide what today's buyers really want in their homes. They definitely get more with their money with the purchase of an American West home."
Each home includes ceramic-tile entries; granite-tile kitchen counter tops; decorative pendant lighting over kitchen islands; Whirlpool dishwasher and self-cleaning oven custom cabinetry with satin chrome drawer knobs and door handles; cultured-marble vanity tops; luxurious deluxe spa shower in master bath; raised-panel interior doors; and a 10-year structural assurance plan.
Lexington is one of five neighborhoods offered by American West in the Highlands Ranch community. Like the residents of its Fairmont, Newcastle, Windsor and Kensington neighborhoods, Lexington residents enjoy the same convenient access to new parks, schools, retail developments and shopping in the burgeoning southwestern valley. "As a builder, we believe in giving our homebuyers all the benefits of master-plan living with out any additional fees such as a SID or LID." Canarelli said.
