It's another Las Vegas secret...there's more than one lakefront home community in the Vegas Valley. Desert Shores is tucked away in the northwest side and is wrapped around four man made lakes. This Master Planned Community has 3351 home units built on 682 acres that was begun in 1988. The homes run the gambit from condos and median priced homes to luxurious customs, that are located in 22 individual communities.
Of course there is boating and fishing available for residents and includes those that aren't living on the lakefront. There are community docks with paddleboats, and a 2100 square foot community center that terraces out to the main lake. It's all part of this recreation oriented development, with a unique twist. In addition to the picnic park with volleyball, basketball, bocce ball court and playground, there's a 200,000 gallon lagoon style pool with sand beach on the lakefront at the clubhouse. Besides this, there are miles of walking and biking trails through the community.
Next door to the clubhouse is the cozy Lakeside Center with a variety of sevices, restaurant, and office space. For just an idea of what you can find, the Village Pub offers food, libations and gaming. For some pampering there's The Spa at Lakeside and The Salon at Lakeside. For those wanting to tie the knot, Lakeside Weddings is there with a hall, garden and patio overlooking the lake that can be a lovely place for ceremony and reception.
So when you're thinking of lake view homes in Las Vegas, there's more than just incredible sites found at Lake Mead in Boulder City. Of course there's another neighbohood I've blogged about, The Lakes on the west side, and now you have Desert Shores. There are a lot of interesting communities throughout the area, and you might just be surprised by what you don't know about the Las Vegas Valley.
