Ardiente is one two newer age restricted communities that have come on-line over the last couple of years, Solera at Stallion Mountain being the other, which is now sold out. This community is in North Las Vegas just south of the 215 beltway and west of the I-15. This is the only age restricted community selling new free standing homes inside the Las Vegas valley. Two more, somewhat smaller communities, are scheduled to open early 2016,
A new builder is now at Ardiente. Shay Homes opened a sales center on March 7, 2011. Eleven models are now available. Home sizes range from 1,218 sq. ft. to 2,444 with base prices ranging from $213,490 to $328,990. Shay Homes represents themselves as the first builder in the United States to introduce green, eco-friendly elements as standard, not optional, features. They also represent that Green Certified homes with green features and solar power systems will be available on all homes. This is one of only three age restricted communities still selling new homes. The other two being Solera at Stallion Mt. and Terra Bella, a mid-rise development in Anthem.
Please note that I can help you in the purchase of a new home at Ardiente. The builder pays my fees and you pay no more. Without an agent, you have no representation as the builder’s agent represents only the builder. Also note that as of August 2016 Ardiente is close to being sold out.

The elevation at Ardiente is approximately 2,000 ft. above sea level.
Pros and cons for Ardiente include the following, in my opinion: The commute to the center of the strip/airport area is fairly easy with close access to the I-15. Ardiente does not have any Land Improvement Assessment fees. This is a small guard gated community so it should be good security wise with an officer roaming the neighborhood as well. Ardiente promotional material puts it as “lock-and-leave lifestyle perfect for age-qualified residents”. On the con side, it is not part of a master planned community and as such it will be surrounded by subdivisions without the protections and amenities usually associated with master plans. Homeowner Association fees may be a little higher than most of the other new options in age restricted, in that it will be guard gated. Also, the fact that the original builder as ceased sales here is not a positive. That fact that a new builder is in place is good. All common area amenities were finished by the original builder, Centex.
The community center at Ardiente is a real jewel. It seems more than adequate for the size of the community and has a real country club feel to it. For veterans, there is a new Nevada Veteran’s Administration Medical Center being constructed 1 1/2 miles from Ardiente. This will include a hospital, outpatient clinic and long term care facility. There is also a 55,000 sq. ft. commissary at Nelllis Air Force Base 3 miles to the east.
