Summerlin, a tony master-planned community in Las Vegas, is a self-contained serene suburb that loves the great outdoors and acts like a city slicker.
The community, which opened in 1991, sits on 22,500 acres, and according to the 2010 census, is home to some 100,000 residents.
It was ranked No. 3 in RCLCO Real Estate Advisors’ national survey of The Top-Selling Master-Planned Communities: Mid-Year Update 2018 and was lauded as one of the “Best Places to Live in America” by Money Magazine in 2014.
It is named after Jean Amelia Summerlin, the paternal grandmother of Howard Hughes, the reclusive billionaire land developer who bought the barren land in 1952. https://www.mansionglobal.com/articles/summerlin-a-scorching-high-end-nabe-in-las-vegas-204789
