The Lakes Real Estate

The Lakes is an upper scale housing development located in Northwestern Las Vegas, Nevada. Covering two square miles, bordered by Sahara, Desert Inn, Durango and Hualapai, it’s close to the Spring Mountains and Red Rock Canyon National Conservation Area. The highlight of the area is a large man-made lake, Lake Sahara, which gives the community its name — originally it was intended to have two lakes, but they decided one was perfect.

The Lakes community was constructed from the mid-1980s to the mid-1990s, and at the time was at the cutting edge of advancement in the Las Vegas Valley. It contains a blend of gated neighborhoods featuring large single-family homes, condos, business plazas and office buildings. There are more than 4,000 private properties from apartment suites to single-family homes to extravagant custom mansions on the waterfront, complete with private docks.

The Lakes Amenities

The Lakes has an abundance of green areas, unprecedented water features, and walking and biking trails for residents. A few other impressive communities are close to The Lakes, including Summerlin to the west and Peccole Ranch and Canyon Gate toward the north.

The central lake is private and accessible only to residents and their guests. Sailboats and electric power pontoons are allowed on the lake, and weekends find residents skimming peacefully through the bays and waterways. This is one of the few places in Las Vegas where you can enjoy waterfront property and recreational opportunities without venturing to the outskirts.

There are also a few businesses located on the lake like The Lakes Lounge. Opened in November of 1987, The Lakes Lounge has remained a family owned and operated restaurant, bar and gaming lounge. It has evolved with the times, keeping up with Las Vegas trends and offering an ever-changing selection of dining options at affordable prices.

And nestled among these attractions is the award-winning and luxurious Red Rock Casino Resort & Spa, featuring unrivaled aesthetics, highly-rated restaurants and bars, refined hotel rooms, world-class entertainment, upscale casino gaming and overall unapparelled quality of service.
