Additionally, access to the many golf courses closeby, as well as its proximity to downtown Summerlin and Lake Las Vegas make this location very desirable. Originally purchased by Howard Hughes as a potential landing ground for the Hughes Aircraft Company, and later developed to become the city of Summerlin, the Ridges is one of the most sought-after neighborhoods in the region. Interestingly, the developers named their new master-planned community for Howard Hughes’ paternal grandmother, Jean Amelia Summerlin.
