Why buyers are lining up for single-story homes in Las Vegas?

Today’s real estate industry is being propelled forward by buyers who know what they want: Spacious single-family homes, open floorplans, and luxurious features. But, there is one thing they increasingly don’t want, and it’s become such a trend that it’s changing the way some builders are approaching new-home design: stairs. Single-story homes in Las Vegas and throughout the country are becoming more and more in demand by a variety of buyers, and builders like Touchstone Living are responding; Touchstone just introduced two brand-new single-story plans at its Hidden Hills community of The Terraces, The Crest and The Horizon.

“One of the hallmarks of Touchstone Living is being able to be responsive to our buyers, building homes that reflect their needs now and into the future,” said Aaron Alred VP of Sales. “We have had overwhelming demand for single-story plans in Las Vegas, and are proud to be able to meet that demand with these two great new plans that showcase our product innovation and sincere commitment to buyers. This new introduction also highlights our nimbleness in being able to design brand-new floorplans without what can be a lengthy and complicated process elsewhere. Because we have a multi-talented and experienced in-house designer who creates all of the floorplans for Touchstone Living communities from scratch, not only is the design process far more streamlined than what you might expect or are used to, but the result is homes that don’t look like everything else in the Valley.”

Nor do they live like single-story homes elsewhere, which might require buyers to trade their land space in order to have a one-story home. “Single-story homes don’t work everywhere,” because of the “economics do not work in the infill neighborhoods, said Dallas-based D Magazine. “Most people do not want to move into a home upside down on cost versus value. Land is too expensive, and you need to justify it with a certain square footage to make the financials work.” And, in areas like Las Vegas, where the land might be more plentiful, lot sizes offered by many builders still might not be sufficient. Overall, “The yard of a one-story home might be smaller,” said The Balance.”

Single-story homes in Las Vegas—especially those in communities like Touchstone Living’s The Terraces at Hidden Hills—have an advantage over other areas in that buyers don’t have to sacrifice their outdoor space in order to get the type of home they want. Sales of these two new single-story homes in Las Vegas have been strong as buyers discover the spacious floorplans, high-end features, and expansive lot that give them ample room to spread out and create the backyard of their dreams, not to mention valley views, and a unique combination of privacy and convenience thanks to a far Northwest location just 10 minutes from Summerlin.

Enter into the three-bedroom, two-bath Crest, and you are welcomed by an extended foyer, the perfect space to introduce your design style and show off your art collection on the gallery wall. Beyond, the floorplan opens up into the large great room, with a wall of windows and glass doors that drink in the views. The gourmet island kitchen is open to the great room, creating the light-filled space and open flow today’s buyers are looking for. The luxe master suite is tucked into the back of the home, with a spa bath featuring dual vanities, plus a large walk-in closet. The spacious secondary bedrooms are located on the other side of the home for maximum privacy.

The three-bedroom, two-bath Horizon offers expansive gathering spaces and private hideaways, including the fantastic master suite with its own luxe retreat. Don’t be surprised if the massive island in the chef’s kitchen becomes the hub of the home with its convenient countertop seating and open sightlines to the immense great room. The two large secondary bedrooms on the other side of the home share a bath, and numerous options including a study, a flex room, and a storage bay, provide great flexibility for buyers to individualize the home to their needs.
