Las Vegas is, after all, an oasis, and that means Las Vegas luxury homes are a destination, not just an address. We, as a community are entertainers, think tank hosts, entrepreneurial spirits, and pushers of the architectural envelope.
The Las Vegas Convention Center hosts the National Association of Home Builder’s show on a yearly basis. While the exhibition is a boost to the local economy, it also keeps engineers stretching their imaginative boundaries. One example of the sophistication of new construction can be seen in electronic floor-to-ceiling movable interior walls of a Park Tower penthouse.
How Las Vegas Luxury Homes Are Evolving
As the bar continues to rise on what homeowners expect in return for all those zeros on the sales contract, real estate developers, and their accompanying teams continue to meet expectations.
New World Development’s Ascaya, in Henderson, invested more than $65 million in the community to secure a top spot in the luxury neighborhood segment. Ascaya is in the McCullough Range, about 1,000 feet above the valley floor.
A designated art studio for lessons and residents is part of the plan. As is the $25 million clubhouse, designed by John Sather, of Swaback Partners, Phoenix, AZ.
A hand full of the 313 lots are sold and under construction. These are Inspiration Homes and have what is now known as desert contemporary architecture. Modern minimalism, as Studio G Architecture likes to call it, features technology hidden inside the bones of the home, discreetly integrated into the overall design.
These are more like private resorts than single-family homes, as SB Architects, one of the Inspiration Home designers, is widely recognized for their award winning resort configurations.
A recent study named Henderson No. 5 in the nation for bicycle-friendly safety in cities with populations over 200,000.
Famous Las Vegas Luxury Homes
Palomino Lane once housed Michael Jackson in a 24,276-square foot mansion. The 8,500-square-foot home featured a subterranean basement and a tunnel that connects two houses to each other. This same underground retreat played host in 2014 to artwork created by the late musician, Jimi Hendrix in a gallery format.
The Heartland Mansion, at 31,000 square feet is the largest private residence built in the city of Las Vegas. The grand dame began as two homes, underwent renovations, survived two fires, and now stands as the showcase of 6th Street.
“Gone With The Wind’s” Tara was the inspiration for the dual staircases in the formal entry. Other famous themes inside the home include an Elvis room, as the performer was a frequent guest. The “Grand Party Room” serves up celebrations for hundreds of attendees with no problem, even with the indoor pool and commercial-grade kitchen.
Additional Comforts of Las Vegas Luxury Homes
The indoor/outdoor lifestyle provided by Las Vegas luxury homes incorporates televisions, movie projectors, and sound systems to create outdoor movie theaters. You can include outdoor bedrooms or courtyard with glass on two sides for flowing entertaining at home.
One Las Vegas, a high-rise condo community on the South Strip, offers residents wine tastings, poolside cabanas, a movie theater, a two-story fitness center and a sports lounge with billiards, table tennis, and video games. Plus, with an on-site concierge, residents can arrange restaurant reservations, grocery delivery, show tickets, or a car and driver.
The Ridges Exemplifies Las Vegas Luxury
With visual access to the Strip and the Spring Mountains, living in The Ridges is a harmonic blend of nature and fabricated finery. Outdoor trails, along with The Bear’s Best Golf Course invite a balance of scenic strolls and escape to your security and seclusion without the feeling of isolation.

Lifestyle amenities like Casitas for guests or caretakers, garages with sound buffers, basements for cinema rooms and game room, plus subterranean living and entertaining.
The Ridges planning commission commits itself to protecting the natural desert environment that surrounds the village—from natural plant materials to wildlife consideration. For example, there is no glaring fluorescent street lighting in this luxury composite, only low-energy path lights that guide pedestrians along the eco-friendly landscapes.
