Modern minimalism and understated elegance
Modern minimalism and understated elegance are the hallmarks of this superb two-year-old residence in The Ridges of Summerlin. A huge master suite forms a private compound on the main level of the two story home, surrounded by an open-plan arrangement of public spaces that invite family activities and provide ample space for entertaining. The main level features an indoor-outdoor ambience, highlighted by a distinctive rear yard with an artistic mix of hard surfaces and greenery, a stone wall accented by massive elevated planters, and a combination of covered seating areas and open-to-the-sky gathering spaces. The home's courtyard entrance leads to a dramatic oversize glass entry door with a view toward the impressive backyard. Enter the home's great room just beyond, with an unobtrusive wet bar nestled into the ell of a contemporary staircase leading to the second level. A sculptural linear fireplace that dominates one wall is mirrored by a similar outdoor fireplace just beyond a disappearing wall of glass that visually expands interior space. A working kitchen is also a work of art, with a massive central island to ease food preparation and offer seating space for family and guests. There is nothing ostentatious about this home, but it possesses all the qualities to make living a delight, with a neutral palette that invites distinctive personalization. Three bedrooms with private baths and an expansive outdoor deck occupy the upstairs level. The home has a total of just over 5,000 square feet, a four-vehicle garage and an enviable location in a prime subdivision, and represents great value.
