Amazing Las Vegas Homes is a weekly feature highlighting an impressive home for sale in the valley.
Tucked into a pocket of desert in a guard-gated community, a five-bedroom, seven-bathroom Summerlin home listed at $4 million towers over its neighbors.
Sitting on a .4 acre lot inside The Ridges, the 7,808-square-foot home at 95 Hawk Ridge utilizes contemporary architecture to keep rooms feeling bright and open. Glass paneling across the home's back wall provides a nearly panoramic view of the surrounding mountains, along with an option for fresh air throughout most of the first floor when the windows are open.
“The sophistication and design is sensational for someone who appreciates style, privacy and quiet,” said Ivan Sher, the property's listing agent.
The backyard maintains an urbane look while sill providing kid-friendly activities like a pool with an optional gate and a swing set.
The entire home, including its nursery, is wired with speakers and cameras than can be controlled from an iPad or iPhone. Although features like this make it apparent the home was built with a family in mind, there are still plenty of upgrades that may appeal to those with more adult tastes, like a glass-walled wine closet near the kitchen.
The view from the backyard is even more beautiful from the second story balcony off the master bedroom, which is equipped with his and her closets and bathrooms, and an oversized steam shower.
“With an eye for design and sophistication, the original homeowners really knew what they were doing,” Sher said.
The home features warm marble, gray brick and unique wallpapers highlighted with a metallic finish and paired seamlessly with designer furniture, modern art and unique carpets.
