Welcome to European Elegance
Imagine coming home or welcoming guests to your European villa, secluded behind the double gated access of Las Vegas’ Country Club Hills, within the award-winning, master-planned Summerlin community. 1717 Enclave Court beckons from behind yet another private gate where visitors will marvel at the Maria Theresa Yellow, the color favored by the Austrian Empress. A grand driveway welcomes guests to the colonnade front façade of this opulent 1.5-acre property; the attention to detail and worldly design make this home and its grounds incredibly unique.
Guests enter through a solid wooden door into the grand entry, complete with an elegantly cascading staircase, beautiful textures—including onyx and a custom wood treatment, and a priceless view through a stunning sitting room to the gorgeous Western horizon. Revel in beautiful natural light and sweeping views of the Championship TPC Golf Course and the La Madre Ridge Mountains, with an enclosed cypress hedge offering privacy. However, the home’s frame for artwork is the showstopper with countless opportunities to display a world-class art collection.
On the main floor, wander down a stunning eucalyptus wood arched hallway, which doubles as a state-of-the-art closure system to protect artwork. Some arches frame hidden doorways to storage and technology rooms. A picturesque dining room comfortably seats ten with room to expand and walls perfect for highlighting masterpieces. Hidden doors conceal access to a butler’s pantry, as well as, a closet storing tanks for the gas suppression system. At the end of this elegant hallway, his and hers executive offices are finished with custom ceilings, exquisite lighting and coordinating gas suppression units for art preservation. At the opposite end of the manse, relax—or entertain—in an additional family room with a wine closet, a plush state-of-the-art media room, and a den that could become a children’s playroom. The fully modern kitchen is equipped with two Wolf stovetops, two full-size refrigerators, and two microwaves; a second kitchen serves as a fully equipped butler’s pantry. An airy breakfast room framed by multiple sets of French doors offers breathtaking views of both the European-inspired backyard and Summerlin landscape. A back staircase or the dramatic front entryway stairs both bring one to the luxurious second level, complete with a dreamy owner’s suite and three guest bedrooms. All bedrooms have either full or Juliet balconies with cascading views of TPC and the mountains beyond. Enter the west-facing owner’s suite to an elegant yet comfortable bedroom, with luxurious his and hers chambers beyond. The men’s retreat includes a stainless-steel plumbed shower—we’re told to resemble the current owner’s yacht. The dressing room is a full closet with stunning details like Hermès-inspired drawer pulls. This closet is not only for a collector of art, but a collector of fashion. Her retreat is three chambers comprising a full bath, shower, salon, massage room, as well as, an opulent closet that rivals any flagship on the Rue Saint-Honoré. Details include white Venetian plaster and white lacquer piano finish, making this a dream suite for any lady of the world. The guest rooms are airy with natural light; all have a three-quarter baths and motion sensor closets. Every upstairs bedroom has views of the gorgeous backyard. This European outdoor sanctuary features an extravagant fountain, charming gazebo, pool and spa, and English gardens with artificial grass. Travertine stone was added throughout, with slip-resistant grit stone installed around the pool. Tall hedges that originally sectioned off the pool and gazebo area were removed to reveal an expansive outdoor space. A unique treasure for a discriminating buyer and art collector, this villa is comparable to a resort hotel as it is 100% self-contained. The three-phase counselor backup power system with an automatic transfer system can generate power for 36 hours within seconds, and infrared cameras on the exterior of the home serve as expanded security measures. The home is entirely controlled by Creston smart home automation, and a new tankless water heater was a part of the recent upgrades. The finishing details enhance the display of a treasured art collection, while state-of-the-art technology protects art at all costs. Forté Specialty Contractors incorporated several new home systems to improve the protection of artwork, including a Novec 1230 gas suppression system installed throughout the common areas on the first floor, Daikin freon air condensers and 24 fan foil units to provide low velocity, high volume temperature control, and waterproof floor systems on the home’s second floor. The all-new gas suppression system, designed to suppress smoke and flames, is the first of its kind to be installed into a private residence and includes cleanroom doors that automatically deploy when smoke is detected, as well as, double-insulated walls and new door and window seals that maintain an air-tight interior. The home theater highlights top-of-the-line Dolby Atmos technology, with an incredible surround-sound system, paired with an 8K resolution television, 4K resolution Apple TV, Blu-ray, and Kaleidescape Strato S Movie Player. Toward the back of the house on the first floor is a caretaker’s wing, including a full gym with wet bar, caretaker’s office, laundry room with double Bosch washers and dryers, and climate-controlled garage with skylights and arched entryways. The current owner spared no cost to re-create this inviting sanctuary intended to house some of the world’s most expensive artwork. Each detail is timeless and elegant with every crevice, room, and wall designed for the sole purpose of showcasing art. Museum-quality lighting highlights the gallery, coordinating gas suppression units match each room’s décor, and custom railings support art throughout the home. This one-of-kind residence with nuanced European elegance with a touch of Las Vegas history is perfect for the international art collector.
