For Clients who want to be close to the Excitement of the Strip, yet still need the safety and features of a Guard Gated Community, Spanish Trail Country Club is an excellent option.
This 640 acre desert oasis with its lush greens and beautiful lagoons sits just west of Rainbow Avenue on Tropicana Ave. in Southwest Las Vegas. A quick trip East on Tropicana Ave from either of the Two Spanish Trail Main Gates will put you at the corner of Las Vegas Blvd. and Tropicana with access to the MGM Grand, New York New York and the T-Mobile Arena, home of the Golden Knights.
Founded in 1984, Spanish Trail was one of the first Country Club communities in the Las Vegas Valley. At that time, Spring Valley was the edge of town, comparable to what Summerlin is today.
Inside the Spanish Trail gates there are Single Family Residential and Townhomes, ranging in price from the mid $200k range to the multi-millions.
As of December 2018, there are currently 41 properties listed for sale in the MLS both Single Family Residential and Townhomes.
Spanish Trail Community Design
Twelve different neighborhoods, some with their own sets of gates, exist inside Spanish Trail Country Club. Three separate Golf Courses designed by Robert Trent Jones Jr. sprawl throughout the community. Many of the homes back up to sections of the course, offering amazing fairway/water features views .
Although the homes that are now on the re-sale market were built in the 80’s and 90’s, many have been re-modeled and brought up to date. As a Realtor finding interiors that are very modern can be difficult at times with current inventory, but as of late we have seen many homes within Spanish Trail that have been acquired by people who specialize in purchasing some of the older homes and making the interiors very modern and unlike anything that new homebuilders are offering in terms of design and darn good bones.
Spanish Trail residents enjoy roving security that patrols 24 hours a day. Each home is equipped with an alarm system and a panic button that can be monitored by the main gate if activated.
Tennis is also very popular and with two tennis centers that have a total of 12 lighted courts, tennis enthusiasts have an opportunity to meet other members who share similar interests.
There is a multi tier membership that ranges from full access to Golfing privileges with the Fitness Center and Pool areas to a scaled down membership fee’s for Residents just wanting access to Dining and Gym / Pool access. From speaking with many of the current Owners one of the more popular amenities is the front door delivery from the restaurant at the Clubhouse that will bring delicious food choices directly to the homes during Dinner time hours.
A sense of family exists in Spanish Trail, with so many long time standing members and staff that have developed relationships over the years making it a unique community in Las Vegas.
As life long residents of Las Vegas, the Stark Team are very familiar with Spanish Trail Country Club and can offer insight and specialized advice that other Agents new to town cannot. What make this community so special is that it is a Guard Gated Golf Course development with an easy commute to both the excitement of the City and the upscale shopping and dining in Summerlin.
