The Gift of Joy

How do you define Joy?

Merriam-Webster Dictionary defines it as…a feeling of great happiness; a source or cause of great happiness: something or someone that gives joy to someone; success in doing, finding or getting something.

American West would like to help you find your joy this holiday season in a brand new home. Joy comes in the form of many things and is different for each individual buyer. This is one of the many reasons why American West offers new homes ranging from 1,798 to 5,487 square feet at 8 different communities located throughout the Las Vegas Valley.

Can your joy be found in our outstanding gourmet kitchens for the aspiring chefs in the family?

Maybe your joy can be found in the luxurious master suites and spas with deluxe spa showers that are unique to only American West.

How about finding joy in the use of our BRAG space featured in some of our homes? It is another unique feature that can only be found in an American West home. The BRAG Space allows you additional space in your home while not compromising your yard space for either that oversized bonus room or additional bedrooms.

Your joy can extend out to the front and rear balconies of our homes which provides alternative exterior entertaining areas.

There are so many other areas of our new homes that bring joy to our homeowners that you can discover when you visit our model homes. Visit a community today and we will look forward to helping make your dream of a new home come true.
