The Summit was developed by Presley (now William Lyon) Homes and consists of 141 single-family properties.
In June of 1995, which is the date of the earliest builder price list that I have in my files, the pricing began at $198,900 for the 1,854 square foot Samoa model. At present, prices range from the high $300,000’s to around $500,000 with the highest values going to those homes with the most attractive settings and views.
The community was originally built in two phases. Although both began construction in 1995, the first phase, located north of the Paradise Lane recreational center, was completed before the second, located just south of Bell Road.
There were six different models ranging in size from 1,854 square feet to 2,688 square feet. Each model was offered in three different exterior “elevations” and also had a number of customizable exterior options, which gave the community a more varied and attractive look.
The Summit, which can be easily recognized by its distinctive turquoise front doors, was also one of the few communities that offered homes in the Territorial style. Interestingly, although all homes were offered with three car garages, a large number of buyers opted to convert the third bay and substantially increased the available square footage of their properties.
