Peccole Ranch is located in the midst of some of the best shopping and restaurants on the west side of Las Vegas, like the Boca Park Plaza and the The Village Square. Golf courses and “locals” casinos are also nearby, along with the renowned Piggott Elementary School. Piggott, conveniently located adjacent to the Peccole Ranch club house, offers an excellent curriculum making the Peccole Ranch community especially popular with families of school age children. Neighboring communities include The Lakes, Summerlin, Canyon Gate and Queensridge.
Peccole Ranch has its own private 18 hole disc golf course which meanders through the extensive community walking trails for exclusive use of the residents. In addition there are also private tennis courts and volleyball courts.
History of Peccole Ranch
The master plan of Peccole Ranch was developed by the Peccole family and constructed from the mid 1980s to the mid 1990s, except for the Queensridge area which started construction in the late 1990s. It was named after William “Bill” Peccole, who acquired the land in 1949, swapping 15,000 acres in Northern Nevada for 3,000 acres in Las Vegas. Even then Peccole had a vision for the land, which he saw come true before his death in 1999. When he purchased the land, it was so far beyond the city limits, it was suggested that the Peccole family not pay taxes on it!
“He commented 40 years ago that he envisioned golf courses and casinos out there, and people thought he was crazy,” said attorney and longtime friend Bill Phillips in a Dec. 16, 1999, Las Vegas Review-Journal article. “But he lived to see that he was right and they were wrong.”
Peccole Ranch is particularly noted for the wealth of amenities it offers residents: from first class schools to parks to shopping to gourmet restaurants and first class medical facilities.
