Willow Ranch Real Estate
Henderson, Nevada has some of the most amazing master-planned communities in the world, with plenty of amenities and natural beauty. Think Anthem, Seven Hills, Green Valley, MacDonald Ranch, Cadence and, of course, the unique and coveted Inspirada.
But what if you want something different, or off the beaten path? You might be seeking a nearby neighborhood that lets you enjoy the parks and amenities of the big master-planned communities, but without paying the HOA fees to have them in your own backyard.
Or you might be looking for something up-and-coming that offers the chance to get in on the ground floor before the big developments.
Both of those goals have a single answer: Willow Ranch.
Developed by DR Horton, Willow Ranch is the latest planned community in West Henderson. Next to Inspirada, this new community is more than just “Inspirada Lite.” It’s a fresh shining gem in its own right.

Whether you’re looking for supermarkets, financial services, cleaning, retail shopping, drug stores, postal services, flower shops, bakeries, home products, trendy salons, or quality restaurants, you’ll find it nearby.
Willow Ranch Parks & Recreation
Inspirada is designed around five amazing City of Henderson parks, and each is open to all city residents, not just those who live in Inspirada. As a Willow Ranch resident, these parks are easily accessible by walking, biking or skating. They are perfect for family playtime, outdoor activities, recreational sports, and meeting up with neighbors.
The parks also play host to plenty of public events, from bimonthly farmers markets to weekly yoga classes, marathons, movie nights, and more.
The five Inspirada Parks are:
Each park offers an impressive list of amenities such as open air meeting spaces, picnic areas with BBQs, Little League fields, lit tennis, volleyball and basketball courts, beautiful gardens, play areas, splash pads for the kids, heated pools, and dog parks.
Willow Ranch Schooling
Willow Ranch is zoned for Inspirada schools, including a choice of two top-rated and award-winning options. Robert and Sandy Ellis Elementary School is a state-of-the-art CCSD public school, while Inspirada Pinecrest is a K-8 charter school focused on STEAM (science, technology, engineering, art, and math).
After that, the kids will move on to Del Webb Middle School and Liberty High School. For private school options in the area, check out Southern Highlands Prep School or Foothills Montessori School.
There’s no surprise that people often choose Inspirada as their number one home choice, even moving sight unseen from out of state. It’s beautiful, thoughtfully designed, and made for connections and personal enjoyment.
But Willow Ranch is the new Inspirada, and offers the same amenities with a smaller, more private neighborhood and benefits of its own that deserve a second look in your home-buying search.
