With four boys including a brand new baby, mom and dad and two dogs, the Klein’s hunt for the perfect home wasn’t exactly easy. They’d been renting locally in Mesquite since getting married four years earlier but they were ready to buy a home of their own. They knew they wanted to stay in Mesquite, where both Chad and Katie Klein are business owners, and their school-age children, Tristan (12), Aidan (10) and Braxton (8) were thriving in public schools in Mesquite. At the time, their youngest son, Caivan, was still a toddler and Chad and Katie knew they still wanted to grow their family.
Their hometown of Mesquite is a small city so the Kleins were familiar with Warmington’s Desert Ridge, a single-family home community that promotes a single-level lifestyle near the Oasis Golf Club. At the time, Desert Ridge had just debuted and when they visited, the fell in love with the model but that plan just didn’t have the square footage they really wanted. So, they waited and continued to look. When they ventured out they found that homes in other neighborhoods were too expensive or just not attractive. They looked at resale homes but really wanted a brand new home. They’d even considered a custom home since Chad is a residential home designer but the cost of the land deterred them.
Meanwhile, Desert Ridge had found its stride and the neighborhood now had many more homes built and new families had moved in and in Katie’s view, seemed to be “booming” so they went back for a second look.
This time, Katie knew the sales representative, Deb Parsley, who like Katie owns and operates a personal care business in Mesquite, and they developed a quick rapport. Deb took the Kleins under her wing and set about showing them a floorplan and location at Desert Ridge that she really knew would work for them. In her view, the Tempe, Plan 2X was a perfect fit for the Kleins. With nearly 2,500 square feet, an optional second level and the ability to incorporate up to five bedrooms and three full bathrooms, the flexible floorplan could easily accommodate the Kleins and their growing family. The Kleins almost agreed but Chad, with his eye toward custom homebuilding, wondered could the upstairs loft be split to include
two optional bedrooms, instead of just one? With Deb’s help he pitched this idea to Warmington who agreed to offer this second bedroom upstairs as an option. And the timing couldn’t have been better. That very same day, Chad and Katie found out they were expecting their fifth son!
“Suddenly our hunt for a new, bigger home that could accommodate our growing family became much more urgent!” said Katie as she recalled the excitement of that day. “As we finalized our home purchase, we were adamant that it had to be finished and ready for move-in in nine months. To our utter delight, our superintendent, Bob, had our brand new home complete and ready for us in six.” They closed in March and welcomed the new baby boy, Ronin, in May.
Today, the Kleins, the five boys and two dogs, Eevee and Chanel, are feeling right at home at Desert Ridge.
They’ve settled into their house and the upper level works perfectly for the two older boys who both have their own room plus a game room! Chad, who is a golfer who completes in the World Long Drive, is enjoying his proximity to the Oasis Golf Club and others throughout Mesquite. The dogs and the whole family are enjoying their newly designed backyard with views of the surrounding mountains, which Kleins customized to include a huge patio and firepit.
As the Kleins discovered, the homes at Desert Ridge and their location are perfect for those looking to enjoy a family-friendly, recreation-based and low maintenance lifestyle opportunity.
The four floor-plan styles range in size from approximately 1,502 to 2,455 square feet and include two bedrooms with the options for up to 5. All homes feature open-concept living with a great room, covered porches and/or patios, and a direct-access two-space garage.
Homes in the final phase are now selling from the low $200,000’s and the sales office and showcase home are open daily. Desert Ridge is located at 1332 Mariposa Way in Mesquite, NV. For more information, call (877) 930-5599. To see floorplans and a gallery of homes, visit homesbywarmington.com.
When Ben and Jessica Reber visited Warmington’s Ridgehaven community, they knew they were home. The beautiful model home they toured was within their budget and the perfect size for the new family of four, inside and out. Plus, the idyllic gated community, which is located in Southwest Las Vegas, is in the area they wanted to live in.
“It all just worked out perfectly,” said Jessica.
The Rebers moved in to their brand-new home on March 1, 2016, which they share with a teenage son and daughter. Not only was it their first home as a couple, the Rebers were one of the first residents to move into the family-friendly community.
The couple chose the Hillcrest, Plan 3 at Ridgehaven, which is the most spacious home available. At approximately 2,393 sq. ft., the two-story home has three bedrooms – two upstairs and one downstairs – and three baths, and also offers a covered patio and two-space garage.
The outside of the home is brown stucco with brick and a Spanish tile roof, which blends seamlessly into the surrounding desert landscape. The inside is impeccably-designed with granite countertops and dark espresso cabinetry in the kitchen, and hardwood laminate flooring the couple chose, which “came out beautifully,” Jessica said.
Green-living and energy conservation is important to Warmington, and each home in the Ridgehaven community is equipped with energy-efficient appliances. The Rebers’ home included a stainless-steel GE Profile refrigerator.
The driveway and patio feature paving stones instead of a solid concrete slab, which was an included upgrade.
“It looks upscale and classy and adds a lot of character to the home,” said Jessica.
The couple also chose the optional upstairs loft, which is their family room where they watch movies on their large screen TV and play games. The home also features spacious ceilings, which reach approximately 12-feet high.
Another perk of living at Ridgehaven, Jessica says, is living close enough to the 215 Beltway to be convenient, but far enough away to not hear the traffic. The family also likes living within walking distance of the new and exciting The Gramercy, a luxury urban village that combines luxury highrise residences, apartments, beautiful light-filled lofts, Class A office space, amenity-filled courtyards, and high-end retail including restaurants, a coffee shop, a nail salon and a gym.
The brand-new gated community, which offers a community pool with cabanas, is currently celebrating its grand opening and homes are now selling! Floor plans offer 3 -5 bedrooms, 2.5 -4 Baths, and range from 2,056-2,393 sq. ft. Prices start from the low $270,000s.
Ridgehaven is located at 9353 Briar Bridge Avenue (Oquendo Road and Fort Apache Road) in Las Vegas. Model homes are open from 10 a.m. – 6 p.m. daily, except for Wednesday from 1-6 p.m.
For more information, call (877) 930-5599 or visit Ridgehaven.
