Mountain’s Edge Exploration Park

Mountain’s Edge is the number one master-planned community in Nevada. On the national level, it was consistently part of the top 10 master-planned communities. There was also a time when it ranked first for four straight years!

Focus Property Group is the proud developer of Mountain’s Edge. Just like its other projects, the real estate company designed and developed Mountain’s Edge with respect to its natural surroundings. For example, it revegetated Exploration Peak, one of the recreational amenities of the large-scale neighborhood, with desert-friendly plants. 

Clearly, Mountain’s Edge will not be a top master-planned community without a reason. Aside from the homes, access to various work, education, lifestyle, and entertainment outlets were also its points of attraction. This includes offices, schools, restaurants, and of course, recreational parks!
