Welcome to an oasis in the Las Vegas desert- The Lakes

A gorgeous rainbow view from the southern portion of Lake Sahara. What a beautiful oasis in the Las Vegas Valley!

Lake Sahara is a man-made lake located in the wonderful master plan community, The Lakes located in Las Vegas.  I recently had the opportunity to spend an uncommon, yet very welcomed rainy day in this fabulous neighborhood and was able to take a few great photos for you to enjoy!

Located just west of Durango Blvd., between Sahara Blvd. and Desert Inn Road, The Lakes was one of the first master planned communities in our Valley.  Developed in the mid to late 1980′s, approximately 4,000 residents gladly call The Lakes home!

Tree-lined Streets, walking paths, greenbelts and wonderful waterscapes add to the charm of this fabulous community

The community has so much to offer its proud residents.  Walking paths, greenbelts, waterscapes as well as many private recreational facilities, neighborhood business plus much more all are within The Lakes approximate 2 square mile boundaries.

One of the many business in The Lakes includes King & I Thai Restaurant. Delish Thai food and great Lunch Specials too!

There is a variety of beautiful single family neighborhoods in various price ranges, along with a wonderful mixture of townhomes, condominiums, and apartment homes.  There are even many residences with lake-front property!  Not too many places in our desert valley that you can say you have that!

Pertaining to The Lakes Real Estate, there are currently 143 properties (active, with contingent offers, and pending sale date) available.  The median price of these properties is $162,00.

The Lakes most expensive property for sale is a breath-taking, lake front home that is 9,469 square feet with six bedrooms and nine baths.  It is priced at $4,350,000.000

The Lakes least expensive property is a 672 square foot, one bedroom, one bath condominium  listed at $34,500.00

If you haven’t had the opportunity to experience the fabulous area, I highly suggest taking a drive over.  Maybe even stop in for lunch or dinner at one of the great dining spots- how about Marche’ Bacchus.  A great little French Bistro that also includes a magnificent Wine Shop!  Make sure to dine on the patio to enjoy your meal lake-front, the best-of-the-best!
