Making a Life Together at Onyx


Erika Tomlinson and James Hayes are proud homeowners in Pardee Homes’ Onyx neighborhood at master-planned Skye Canyon in Las Vegas.

Erika Tomlinson, James Hayes and their puppy, Neptune, have built a new home together at Onyx by Pardee Homes in Las Vegas. Located in the beautiful master-planned community of Skye Canyon, Onyx is a neighborhood designed for couples and growing families who love the outdoors and want to make a statement with their home.

This is the first time Erika and James have bought a house together and they chose Pardee Homes for its customer service and attentiveness. “Every step of the way, [Pardee Homes] is here to give you the information that you want and need to make you feel comfortable with the purchase that you’re making,” James said.

Erika and James settled on their home at Onyx because of several things, one of the most important being the community and its focus on connecting to nature. Onyx at Skye Canyon was built to embrace outdoor living. Amenities include a state-of-the-art activity and fitness center and neighborhood parks that are connected through walking trails. At Skye Canyon, open space is the norm, not the exception.

Another big factor in their homebuying decision was having their outdoor living space easily accessible. Erika had a three-story townhome before this and James didn’t like that he had to go up four flights of stairs to get to the rooftop deck. So they were drawn to their new home’s floor plan because of all the indoor/outdoor living space it offers. “The entire left side of our house can be open,” Erika said, “which is amazing and something that for Las Vegas, is a little unique. We put in the stacking doors … that just allow all this beautiful fresh air to come in with the mountains really close by.”

After Erika’s multi-level townhome and James’ one-story house, their two-story Plan 3 home at Onyx is the perfect fit for them. Onyx offers homes ranging from 3,186 to 3,386 approximate square feet with up to 5 bedrooms and up to 4.5 baths. Plus, the options for a downstairs master suite and upstairs loft make it easy for homeowners to pick the floor plan that works for them.

Erika and James knew Onyx was different because it didn’t look like everything else on the market. They were drawn to the modern lines, fresh designs and architectural styles of the homes, and love that when you drive down the block it’s not the same house over and over again.

“When we found out that we were able to build on this beautiful corner lot on Midnight Meteor with our [puppy] Neptune, we knew it was meant to be,” Erika said.
