Lets Explore Coronado Ranch

If you’re looking for a bedroom community near Las Vegas that feels a bit out of the way but is located just blocks from restaurants, shops and the freeway, you might picture yourself in Coronado Ranch. “It’s one of the nicest neighborhoods that’s still affordable,” says Realtor Kate Alessi of LIFE Realty District. “It’s family oriented and very good amenity-wise.”

Developed by American West builders between 2001 and 2020, this master-planned community near Warm Springs Road and Rainbow Boulevard features three- to six-bedroom homes with two- to three-car garages, great for families and first-time buyers. Many of the properties are in cul-de-sacs where kids can safely play. Subdivisions here include Southbrook, The Reserve, Jones Crossing and Woodbridge. As Southwest Las Vegas explodes with new housing developments, square footage and lot sizes diminish. But Coronado Ranch is old enough to still feel roomy, Alessi notes. Floor plans range from 1,600 to 5,000 square feet, perfect for out-of-towners looking to relocate but accustomed to having space to spread out. On average, properties here sell between $300,000 and $400,000.

If stairs aren’t an issue, you might consider one of the community’s three-story homes. From your private balcony, enjoy your morning coffee and a gorgeous view of Spring Mountain. Or relax on your patio after dinner with the Las Vegas Strip glittering on the horizon. Many homes in Coronado Ranch were designed for outdoor living and entertainment. Generous backyards include private pools, barbecue grills and other appealing features that make the most of Las Vegas’s excellent weather.

Several schools are in walking distance for much of the community. Students in Coronado Ranch attend Tony Alamo Elementary School, Lawrence & Heidi Canarelli Middle School and Sierra Vista High School. Noted for its academic rigor, Alamo is one of the most diverse schools in Nevada. Canarelli, ranked one of the best middle schools in Nevada by U.S. News & World Report, emphasizes excellence in science and math and in 2023 sent two robotics teams to the largest robotics competition in the world. Sierra Vista is home to an award-winning marching band. There are also several private schools to choose from nearby.

Coronado Ranch residents head to Cougar Creek Park, located along the neighborhood’s southern edge, for outdoor fun. Cool off on the splash pad during warmer months. Year round, you can burn off some energy on the music-themed playground, work out on the fitness areas or challenge neighbors to pickleball. Or simply relax with a picnic.

When you live in Coronado Ranch, you’re right around the corner from nearby shopping centers, restaurants and services. Take your grocery list to Smith’s, which anchors the Southwest Marketplace, or Walmart at the huge Arroyo Market Square. UnCommons, a new mixed-use community less than three miles west, is a destination for foodies. An upscale food hall and variety of high-end, locally sourced restaurants are opening there in 2023. A caveat, however, for when you're heading out: "Rainbow Boulevard is always busy, especially during rush hour," Alessi says.

When the glitz of the city beckons, hop on the 215 to be at The Strip in less than 15 minutes. You’re also close to the 15 for a quick getaway to Lake Mead, Sloan Canyon and Red Rock conservation areas. Or get out of town altogether: Harry Reid International Airport is 15 minutes away. Whatever your destination, when you start at Coronado Ranch, a world of opportunity is just outside your door.
