Nestled high above the world renowned Dragon Ridge Golf Course, this extraordinary, nearly 12,000 square foot home has quite possibly the finest views of any house in the Vegas Valley. Beyond the sweeping views of many fairways and greens sit the picturesque surrounding mountains. But, perhaps most striking are the unobstructed views of the entire Vegas skyline from nearly every room in the home as well as the multiple decks and patios - of which there are over 5,000 square feet - and from all of the superb outdoor retreats.
This home is situated in the MacDonald Highlands guard-gated country club community, which is widely regarded as the most exclusive address on the east side of the Vegas Valley. The community sits a mere 10-minute drive to the Henderson executive airport, 15 minutes to McCarran International Airport, 5 minutes from the 215 beltway and moments from exceptional shopping, restaurants and schools.
This community is a true country club. It is guard-gated and incorporates the Dragon Ridge private course as well as an elaborate clubhouse, restaurant and fitness facility.
The home itself can only be described as spectacular. All of the rooms are excellently proportioned and not only capture natural light, but each room benefits so perfectly from the Strip views. Most of the feature rooms have concertinaing doors that open to the expansive decks, creating a true indoor/outdoor living environment.
The build quality is second to none. This home was designed by Jon Jannotta and built with a “no expense spared” approach that is evident throughout. Very recently this home has gone through some high-level improvements to bring it to the forefront of technology. The whole home has Alexa voice control, so by simply talking to Alexa you can turn on lights, televisions, music, open drapes, change the temperature and so on. In addition, each room has “in wall” iPad control.
From the street you head through entry gates which open to a tranquil courtyard that creates an excellent buffer from the road. It features a delightful Koi pond filled with mature Koi. There are also sitting areas and a fireplace nestled inside.
As you enter the residence you are immediately taken aback by the views - they’re at every angle. Through the entryway you’ll come upon the great room. The areas have been thoughtfully separated to create a dining room, central bar, family room and living room. All the rooms are open to each other and all connect to the balcony.
The home features a chef’s dream kitchen with a large center island and is packed with high-level commercial grade appliances. There are ample countertops and prep areas as well as an abundance of cabinetry and an oversized food pantry. The kitchen is adjacent to a large family room and a charming breakfast nook with folding doors that open to a covered patio. It’s the perfect place to have your morning coffee while taking in the Strip views.
Also on the street level is the first of two master suites. It’s a great size and has rich Parquet floors in the bedroom as well as a kitchenette and fireplace. There’s also a door leading to one of the balconies. Like many of the rooms in this home, there is a charming seating area and, of course, an unobstructed view of the city. This is a true secondary master and thus has an expansive bathroom that includes a soaking tub, steam shower, two toilets and a large walk-in closet.
The middle level of 1480 MacDonald Ranch Drive contains the secondary bedrooms, all of which are excellent in size and have large walk-in closets, en-suite bathrooms, balconies and, once again, incredible golf and city views. Also on this level - one of the only rooms without views- is the true 12-seat movie theater. It’s in the perfect location, nicely tucked away to avoid any sound penetration when you crank up a blockbuster or host a Super Bowl viewing party.
On this level you’ll also find what could be described as the main master suite. It’s similar in size to the secondary master but has the benefit of foldaway doors that open it up to yet another balcony. With (or without) the doors open you can relax in bed and enjoy the extremely private, unobstructed views of the Strip and golf course.
Like the upstairs master suite there is a kitchenette and fireplace as well as built-in home entertainment (Alexa controlled), plus a plush master bathroom that has a large tub, steam shower, fireplace, enormous master closet and the all-important dual toilets.
The lowest level of this extraordinary home is still perched high above the golf course and serves as the entertainment level. There’s a giant game room with plenty of space for pool, shuffleboard, video games, a poker table and much more. The game room has folding doors that open to the outdoor kitchen and patio areas. Even from the lowest level, you’ll still enjoy outstanding city and golf views.
In addition, on this level you’ll find the wine cellar. It’s impressive, fully climate controlled, and large enough for not only an extensive wine collection but also a seating area to host an “in cellar” wine tasting.
The outdoor areas are, quite frankly, exquisite. There is a four-level cascading pool that is topped with a Strip view spa. There’s also a secondary swim spa so that you can get your laps in - a treadmill for swimming of sorts. The backyard also features a full outdoor kitchen that includes a pizza oven, barbecue, beer tap and fireplace as well as an outdoor television. There is even a putting green. All of which, of course, have amazing city and golf views.
Each level can be accessed via elevator and the home has a generous amount of storage rooms. There’s an oversized four-car garage as well as a long driveway with an electronically powered gate.
All in all, this is one of the finest homes on the market today and it’s a fantastic value.
This spectacular MacDonald Highlands home has possibly the best views in town. Its jaw-dropping unobstructed views of the Las Vegas Strip, city and mountains can be seen from almost every window of the house. Situated above the award-winning Dragon Ridge Golf Course, the house also offers expansive views of multiple fairways and greens.
