Reno-Tahoe, NV – Parc Forêt, the latest and final enclave within the well-established Jack Nicklaus Signature Golf Course community of Montrêux, wins six awards from the Builder Association of Northern Nevada (BANN) and three Silver Awards from The Nationals. The three Silver National’s Awards establish Parc Forêt as one of the few finalists in contention for the prized gold, to be awarded February 4, 2014, in recognition of superior craftsmanship, value, and home and lifestyle design. One of the BANN-ER awards, “Best Survival Strategy”, nods to the coveted value of Parc Forêt’s offering: a starting price of only $900k for a semi-custom state-of-the-art home with thoughtful open floor plans in a pristine, tree-lined, gated Jack Nicklaus Signature Golf community.

In a state where residents relish in the total absence of state and corporate income taxes, this price-for-value opportunity has further driven the flood of Californians seeking the true value of a Nevada address in a picturesque Tahoe setting, resulting in the rapid sell of 8 of 10 lots in the first release. Parc Forêt was developed by Ladera Development to highlight a lifestyle of culture, community and year round outdoor adventure in a region known for boasting an average of 300 days of sunshine annually. This idyllic neighborhood is just minutes from the world-renown recreation of Lake Tahoe, the Mount Rose Ski Resort, and the many conveniences of the Reno, Nevada metropolis.
