Like a jewel in the heart of the sprawling 4,500-acre master-planned Anthem community, the popular Coventry Homes at Anthem, in south-western Henderson, Nevada is a favorite residential destination of many. With homes ranging in size from 1,500 to 4,400 square feet to accommodate households of nearly any size, the community attracts an eclectic mix – from families and young couples to singles and retirees.
Coventry Homes is like a modern Anytown, USA, where neighbors know each other, interact on a regular basis, and care deeply for the community. Don’t be surprised to see kids with lemonade stands in the summer, and a neighborhood watch group patrolling at night.
In fact, the Coventry Neighborhood Watch boasts almost 1,000 active members, and hosts an annual Halloween Night “Safe Street” Event that attracts thousands of families for trick-or-treating. But that’s not all! The old-school village-like atmosphere of this area is enhanced by numerous supportive community groups, including a Mom’s Club and Babysitting Club, in addition to the expected Golf Club, Fitness Club and Poker Club. The Coventry Moms Club has close to 100 members, and hosts social events like holiday parties, play dates at the park, fire station tours and the annual Fall Fest.
The Coventry Homes at Anthem Homeowners Association also hosts a variety of events throughout the year for resident families. These are designed to bring neighbors closer together and increase the value of the community.
The events include “Outdoor Movies and Camp-Out in Harmony Park,” and the popular Winterfest Celebration, which attracts 500 to 600 Anthem Coventry residents. Santa Claus flies in by helicopter to Harmony Park for a visit and neighborhood foodies compete in the community Chili Cook-Off.
There’s also the Coventry Homes at Anthem “Spring Fling” festival, which is held at Easter time in Harmony Park. Hundreds of families come out to enjoy the Spring weather, the area’s largest Easter Egg Hunt with over 3,000 stuffed eggs, and a visit from the Easter Bunny. The festival also includes face painters, bounce houses, a rock-climbing wall, pony rides, a petting zoo, horse-drawn hayrides and a United Blood Services blood drive.
But it’s not just for the kids … you’ll also find adult-only events like the “Bike and Wine Walk” Fundraiser and the Summer “Beer Fest and Sing Along.”
Established in 1999 and developed through 2002, Anthem Coventry’s population of 3,000 lives peacefully in about 1200 private and strategically placed single-family homes.
The houses were built by Del Webb, the original developer of the master plan of Anthem communities, and other top home builders Richmond American Homes and DR Horton.
Sections of the community include Anthem Coventry by Del Webb, Anthem Coventry by Richmond American Homes, Estates at Anthem Coventry by DR Horton Homes and Heights at Anthem Coventry by DR Horton Homes.
Between the houses you’ll find meandering walking paths, plenty of green belts, the 10-acre neighborhood Harmony Park and the popular 53-acre Anthem Hills Park.
Anthem Hills Park features every amenity you could ask for, including lighted ball fields, soccer fields that host the City of Henderson Soccer Club games, skate park, roller hockey, basketball and volleyball courts; barbeques, picnic tables and covered picnic shelters; restrooms, playground, walking course and open grass area.
Harmony Park is a community park managed by the Homeowner’s Association, and forms the central focal point of Coventry Homes. Here you’ll witness kids playing, couples strolling hand-in-hand, and families cycling along the walking trails. While smaller than Anthem Hills Park, this well-loved neighborhood destination offers two basketball courts, soccer nets, frisbee golf and life-sized Jenga.
Nestled against the Black Mountains, near the McCullough Mountain foothills and Sloan Canyon National Conservation Area, Coventry offers the best of both worlds: nature on one side, and a world-class city on the other.

The Sloan Canyon recreational area is popular for hiking, and the Sloan Canyon Petroglyph Site is one of the most significant cultural resources in southern Nevada with more than 300 scenic rock art panels.
Just 20 minutes from the heart of the Las Vegas Strip, many of the custom homes in this community feature beautiful city views, as well as mountain views. The McCarran International Airport is also a mere 20 minutes from your door, providing easy access to worldwide travel.
