This is a very large and friendly home with a big beautiful kitchen for the gourmet in all of us. Hard wood floors and carpet throughout. The kitchen has granite counters, three ovens, two convection, and an American built in Frig (48' across) plus a second frig in the 3 car garage. A/C and two fireplaces with a very large backyard for a house so close to the strip. The backyard has many climbing toys, a BBQ, a table with six chairs with lots of grass. A blow up pool is available.
Upstairs: The Master Bedroom has a king size bed, a TV with VCR and DVD as well as cable and large sliding doors which lead out to the enormous balcony which has an amazing view of the mountains behind and the hotels on the strip in front. The Master bath has two toilets, sinks and a double shower(we listed it as one bathroon, however,it is really two as there are one for him and one for her), as well as each has a closet. Our son's room has two twin beds, and a TV with VCR, no cable hook up, so no television reception. His bathroom is shared by the adjoining room which is the au pairs room. It has two sinks, a toilet and a bath/shower.
The au pair's room has a double futon, double French doors going out to a small balcony, a TV with VCR and DVD as well as cable.
Our daughters room right now has a crib/cot, but by next summer will have a double bed. She has a private bathroom with a sink, toilet and bath/shower.
Downstairs: The guest room has a queen size bed, TV and full bathroom with sink, toilet and very large shower.
All bedrooms have large built in closets.
There is a playroom filled with toys and a TV with DVD and VCR. There is also a queen size sleeper in here. Both the living room and the family room have gas fireplaces that light with a switch on the wall. We keep them off with the gas turned off to them in summer to save money. They are heating units and It is really too hot to put them on and a waste of the air conditioner.
We live at the opening of the Red Rock Canyon with many hiking and biking trails as well as horse back riding and camping. We are 15 minutes from The Strip and downtown. We are 1500 feet above with an amazing view of the strip from our full balcony.
There are wonderful community pools and parks all around us. You can go to the www.Summerlin.com website and see all the great things to do here. While we are so close to the action, here is quiet and idyllic. The brown and red mountains that surround the house are magestic. Because it is a vally, we can see the mountains that are on the other side and the clear blue skys almost everyday.
We are about an 5 -6 hour drive from the Grand Canyon and 3 1/2 from Los Angeles.
I am a Professor at the local University and my husband is a computer engineer who works from home.
We have a little girl, 2 now and a boy who will be 4 soon. we also have an au pair who will be coming with us.
We are looking for a like home, large, kid friendly with videos and toys near London. We want to come for most of the summer so we are open to one month or two. If there is a community pool nearby that would be great. We have a dog, but she will be away with friends while we are in the UK, so you won't be responsible for her, however, if there is a dog allergy this house is not for you.
We like to keep it neat and clean and if you are interested, you may have our regular cleaning lady come in every other week for about 50 pounds.
