You won't find amenities inside the borders of this bedroom community in Mesquite, Nevada, but you will find them nearby. Developer RFMS, Inc. opened Shadow Crest in 2008 as part of a larger master-planned development that comprises several 55+ active adult neighborhoods. This ruggedly beautiful setting in the Virgin River Valley rewards residents and visitors alike with sweeping mountain views and proximity to some of Nevada's best golf and nature recreation.

Upon completion, 105 single-family detached homes are planned and are currently available on a new and resale basis. Six customizable floor plans range from 1,585 to 3,048 square feet and come with attached garages and a choice of up to four bedrooms and three-and-a-half bathrooms. Options include modern kitchens, covered patios and, for some homes, backyard pools. All residences are built to maximize views of the surrounding landscape.

The City of Mesquite Recreation Center is only a short drive away and offers many opportunities for staying fit, social and active. It houses a fitness room, an aerobics and dance studio, two large gymnasiums and a heated indoor pool. Residents will also find ping pong and pool tables and a climbing wall. Outside, there's a second heated pool with a water slide, in addition to basketball courts.

Outdoor recreation continues at the Mesquite Sports and Events Complex with two large soccer fields that are also used for golf exhibitions, archery events and more throughout the year. When the grandchildren are in for a visit, they'll enjoy the on-site playground and splash pad, as well.

Golfers will be happy to know there are several great courses nearby, including the neighboring Falcon Ridge Golf Course. This is an 18-hole championship course that is well maintained and caters to all levels of play. Falcon Ridge also features a bar and grill where players can unwind and enjoy a bite to eat after a round of golf, along with a driving range and practice greens.

In addition to making full use of the nearby amenities, community members enjoy getting together for local events or meeting for book club discussions, hobbies, card games, and various other activities.

It wouldn't be Nevada without world-class dining, gaming, or entertainment, and you don't have to travel far to find them. Several restaurants and bistros are within minutes of the property. Residents can also take in a live show or dance the night away at a Mesquite-area lounge, or try their luck at one of the local resort casinos.

The state is well-known for its nature parks and preserves. Bryce Canyon, Lake Mead and the Grand Canyon North Rim are all within driving distance of Shadow Crest, which is sure to please any outdoor enthusiast.

For those who want to travel out of state every once in a while, Mesquite is also a gateway to neighboring Arizona and Utah, as it's located so close to both state borders.

Many 55+ active adults relocate to Nevada because of the lifestyle it offers. Shadow Crest provides a quiet residential retreat in the heart of stunning natural beauty and easy access to Nevada's parks and outdoor recreation.
