The Lakes Las Vegas - Pictures of this Hidden Gem

By
Real Estate Agent with Simply Vegas Real Estate

I was previewing some homes for a client today at one of my favorite spots in the Vegas Valley. It's also a favorite of my photographer, who was a little upset he had to use his backup camera since his favorite Nikon is in the shop for cleaning. I won't post all 300+ pictures he took, but think these will give you a good idea of this hidden gem.

No, this isn't Lake Las Vegas, or Lake Mead, but just as beautiful. It's a community called simply 'The Lakes', and covers about a two square mile area. It's not far from Red Rock and the Spring Mountains. It was built in 1985 and is one of the many unique communities you can find in Vegas. The lakefront homes offer private docks for the owner's electric boats, and they can cruise down for dinner at the restaurant, a run to the convince store, or to pick up their dry cleaning...that might be hard for some to imagine as desert living.

There are a variety of homes on and off the lake. From area condos starting in the low $100,000, to smaller single family homes in the high $100,000 - low $200,000's , all the way up to very large 8,500 to almost 11,000 sf customs that are currently ranging up to $4,900,000. There is a wide variety of home sizes and prices, even lake front. So take a home tour starting of with the view from the pool of one of the homes I previewed today.

As you can see from these pictures there are incredible mountain views. Even if not lake front, there are lake and mountain view homes, and the beautiful lush landscaping throughout the community. Use the HD button on the bottom toolbar of the player to view full screen. Click it again to exit full screen when finished. You can also view this show and others online HERE.

I hope you enjoyed this tour of Las Vegas homes at The Lakes, one of the many spectacular communities in the Vegas Valley. As you can see there is a wide variety of lifestyles to chose from here in southern Nevada. From lake front or view, mountain view, golf course communities and equestrian properties, to luxury condominiums on the Fabulous Las Vegas Strip, and everything in between.

Linda: Yes it is absolutely gorgeous there, and I can't tell you how many times I've sent pictures out and I'll hear "That's in Vegas?" There are quite a few gems around the valley, if you know where they hide them! :-)
