Nestled into the desert landscape that defines Nevada’s visage, Ascaya feels as if it were shaped by the elements. That it is manmade makes the terrain all the more impressive. Where stone rises up to meet the sky, there is a place called Ascaya.
Ascaya is a collection of 313 luxury estate homesites poised atop a monument of spiraling stone. Rising nearly 1,000 feet above the valley floor to a total elevation of more than 3,000 feet, the homesites have been carefully orchestrated to welcome the most impressive views of the entire Las Vegas valley.
Sn Francisco-based SB Architects designed the first of Ascaya’s six “Inspirational Homes,” which serve as community showcases. Matt Page was the lead designer for home, which can be yours for $7,7 million.
Before entering the house, you pass through a gate leading to a long “arrival courtyard” with walls on the southern side that provide shade from the sun and privacy from neighbors while outside.
The two-story contemporary home spreads over 6,641 square feet of luxurious living areas and comes with four bedrooms and six-and-a-half bathrooms. The home has an open spaces, and was designed with a resort feel. The home has an indoor-outdoor living design, while the master bedroom has a disappearing wall.
The expanded, horizontal floor plan feels like a seamless entertaining space — from the front yard out to the back of the home, where the rectangular pool abuts a sunken fire pit. The spa is around the corner, just outside a multiple-purpose room for guests, or an extra entertainment space, again with disappearing walls. There is also the large three-car garage.
This house is the first of six inspiration homes commissioned by Ascaya to be completed.
Four additional inspiration homes are under construction, with the final home scheduled to start construction later this year. The homes will serve as showcases for the luxury community for about two years, said Darin Marques, Ascaya sales manager.
The centerpiece of life at Ascaya is the spectacular 23,000 square foot Ascaya Clubhouse.This dramatic expression of desert architecture and hub for social activity is reserved for homeowners and guests. The Clubhouse provides a relaxed, elegant, and exclusive environment to socialize and unwind. Soaring rooflines, terraced gardens, inviting pools and the finest finishes surround you, all designed to fulfill the desires of discriminating owners.
