For most people, their Las Vegas journey ends at the Strip. For others hoping for a quieter idyll with more space, lake and mountain views plus plenty of recreation at their fingertips, their search may eventually lead them further out to Lake Las Vegas.
Often hailed as a “destination within a destination,” Lake Las Vegas is a quintessential desert oasis where you can golf, bike, hike or shop, and yet you’re only 30 minutes to the airport and the Las Vegas strip. It’s just the kind of all-inclusive place that inspires second-home vacation visions of “what-ifs” and “one day…” musings. Of course, buying your own desert getaway doesn’t have to stay as fantasy forever; in fact, it might be closer than you think.
In this lakefront contemporary recently listed by Henderson-based Coldwell Banker Global Luxury Property Specialist Kim Chitwood, you’ll find the ultimate home from which to live and play – and sometimes work remotely, if you wish. Tucked away in the prestigious community of Lago Vista, the home takes its position right on the lake with stunning head-on water and mountain views that instantly put you in a vacation state of mind.
“One of the home’s most striking features is its open space design and disappearing glass walls for indoor/outdoor living,” says Chitwood. “You have that sense of nature coming into the space that really has a calming effect.”
Your arrival begins with the entry as a massive pivot door introduces a freestanding wet bar and a floating concrete stairs with glass stair rail. “This home is all about escape, having fun and enjoying a relaxed Vegas lifestyle,” adds Chitwood. Inside, clean, contemporary lines and over 5,000 square feet of living space sets the stage for easy living and entertaining. “The highest level of finishes and upgrades give it a luxurious feel from the moment you step inside,” says Chitwood.
A spacious entertainer’s kitchen – appointed with Wolf appliances and an oversized island – opens to the great room and dining room, which has corner multi-slide doors leading to an awe-inspiring infinity pool, spa and outdoor living room. The effect completely blurs the lines between indoors and out so you can enjoy those balmy Vegas nights. The dining room also has a loft with a full wet bar and a large deck with unobstructed views. If you want to give the party a lift, take your guests up to the loft with a wet bar and a large deck with unobstructed views.
The first-floor owner’s suite rivals any five-star hotel on the Strip with a fireplace and spa-inspired primary bath. Three en-suite bedrooms have their walk-in closets, and one suite even has a private deck with unobstructed views. “Every room has been impeccably designed and furnished just like the finest hotels,” says Chitwood. “The furnishings are also negotiable, which could give the future owner a chance to simply move right in if they wanted.”
Beyond the home itself, there’s all of Lake Las Vegas and its offerings to enjoy – a privately-owned 320-acre lake, luxury resorts, championship golf courses, dining, shopping and more. And as part of the community of Lago Vista, there is also access to a private beach. “The location doesn’t get any better than Lago Vista,” says Chitwood. “Since it’s gated, it’s very private. You really feel like you are living in your very own village.”
