If you’ve ever wondered what it would be like to live in a dream, pay attention. Blue Heron’s newly completed Vegas Modern 001 provides the answer to that question. This 15,000-square-foot, three-story, contemporary masterpiece in the master-planned Dragon’s Reserve community in MacDonald Highlands integrates earth, water, fire and air in a residence that connects with the vibrant Vegas Valley.
Although you may choose to enter the home through the massive garage, a customizable area with space for from four to 11 vehicles, a show car display and Tesla charging stations, you could also come in from the front entry. Jets of fire, a watery bed, greenery and massive stone walls welcome you, giving a taste of the four elements present throughout the home.
To one side is a separate casita/home office/studio with glass walls allowing a glimpse of the main home. You’ll pass over a walk suspended in water as you enter, where a pool stretches between massive stone-tiled walls, with the master bedroom suite on one side and the downstairs living area on the other. That pool and walls also frame a gorgeous view of the valley with the Strip as a focal point. Plantings throughout connect to the desert landscape.
Inside the great room are several seating areas perfect for entertaining, surrounded by water and pools, yet open to the outdoor spaces and looking to the valley. A massive kitchen and a dining area stretches across one end, and a catering kitchen leads through to a craft room and the garage beyond. The craft room holds a custom pet area as well, with an enclosed grassy yard to the side.
The master bedroom is a joy that you might cocoon in without missing a thing, with a luxurious bathroom, a bedroom with a sunken sleeping area and seamless floor-to-ceiling windows providing a stellar view. A steam shower and floating tub are showpieces of the open bathroom, and an outdoor area contains two showers as well.
Ascend the grand staircase from the great room and you’ll find the Sky Suite, a gorgeous open bedroom with luxury bathroom and attached terrace. Another bedroom also lies tucked away on this level. And on the top floor, a rooftop deck and seating makes those views even more amazing.
In this property, there are so many elements that they are almost impossible to describe. Inside the home, there is a 13.5-foot custom LED media wall, almost 100 miles of low-voltage wire and a 300-solar panel installation on the roof, meaning you are virtually your own power company. Architecture and design go hand-in-hand here, with one complementing the other.
And throughout, you’ll find small and large surprises that add to the glory, from a powder room with 30-foot ceilings to a cantilevered outdoor landing that provides a romantic spot to take in the stellar view.
