At the northern end of the Las Vegas is where you'll find Silverstone Ranch, offering homes built around the Silverstone Golf Course. It's within the Centennial Hills community in the northwest valley. The subdivision and course are above Buffalo and Grand Teton Drive near the top of the community's boundary.
To the north are the Sheep and Las Vegas Mountain Ranges of the Desert National Wildlife Range. Also to the north in part of the BLM designated conservation and recreation area will be the Clark County Shooting Park, one of the largest competitive and sport facilities in the country, that is scheduled to open June 2009. Just to the west is Floyd Lamb Park and Tule Springs, once famous as a dude ranch and where prehistoric mammoth remains have been uncovered.
The Master Planned Community of Centennial Hills is diagonally split by US Route 95, offering freeway access to the downtown of Las Vegas, the Strip, and McCarran International Airport. The 215 Beltway also dissects it east to west, currently as a 4 lane expressway, but is scheduled to be completed as a freeway around 2013. The 53 mile Beltway circles nearly ¾ of the Las Vegas Valley from I 15 North near the Las Vegas Motor Speedway, to the 515 / 95 / 93 Interchange in Henderson.
While still within the city limits of Las Vegas, much of Centennial Hills has a more suburban feel. Their are a wide variety of housing options found throughout the vast community, with something to fit most any taste or need. In the subdivision of Silverstone Ranch choices range from town and tract homes to luxury and guard-gated, wrapped around the 27 hole course with the fantastic mountain views.
I was out and about the area for clients this past Sunday, so here's a photo tour of Silverstone Ranch and Silverstone Golf Club to give you a little idea of what it's like.

For those in golf homes in Las Vegas, Silverstone is the only course in that immediate area, and currently no others are scheduled to be built there. While a public course, there are a limited amount of private memberships, and to join you don't have to reside within Silverstone Ranch. More information is found at Silverstone200.com.
For my clients relocating to the area, there are tours available to show you the quality of their facilities. I can arrange for my home buyers to see what all Silverstone has to offer, a test drive with a round of golf, or lunch in the 34,000 square foot clubhouse dining facilities. For more details please watch my Silverstone Golf Club Video Presentation.
If you've been following my blog, you'll know that this trip to the north for Aliante and Silverstone on Sunday was at the opposite end of the valley from the day before. Saturday was spent at some of the southern golf communities, Seven Hills, and McDonald Highlands. It appears there's a growing interest in many Las Vegas home communities as prices are now just too hard to resist.
