Description

If one only relied on Lao Tzu’s claim “The excellence of a dwelling is in its site.” all would be said in regard to this listing. The site at The Ridges (former Howard Hughes property) is a front line promontory affording arguably the best panoramic view of the Strip, desert and mountains in Las Vegas. And then there are the gardens: carefully landscaped with a desert palette, but functional with greensward, fruit trees, herb garden and specimen plantings, each selected to be draught tolerant, and environmentally compatible. Yet this is just the setting for a dialogue of serious work of art, architecture, and landscape which as a piece affords a most comfortable and sophisticated lifestyle that clearly re-defines, on a more conscious level, the meaning of residential luxury in the desert.

The personal daily interaction with the art and architecture is elevating. Carefully planned indoor-outdoor relations of the architecture bring a close connection to sustaining nature. Subtle trails invite one into the gardens, while a morning or evening respite within Turrell’s ever changing art forces a continuing deeper awareness of how pre-conceived perceptions limit one’s view of the world within which we live.

The precision of the industrially fabricated steel and glass structure itself calms the mind with its re-assuring order, but with its natural free-flow across the landscape, it is not limiting or constricted by an imposed geometry. The residence is not just cerebral; it has been designed to enhance the health and happiness its occupants. There is a luxurious outdoor spa contiguous to the master bath; physical exercise is provided for with a long lap pool, and the subterranean indoor basketball court. The grand two story living room, dining pavilion, wine cellar, and theatre accommodate formal entertaining, while the over-sized glass walled eat-in kitchen, which flows out to wide verandah-like patios, is the ideal focus for casual interaction with family and close friends.

Within the 24-hour guard gated Ridges enclave, Arrowhead Las Vegas is sited on approximately 1.5 acres, and incorporates: additional gated and fenced security, master controlled sophisticated electronics and security, Master suite, three additional bedrooms, guest house, 7 baths, living room, dining room, theatre, indoor basketball court, wine cellar, laundry, subterranean 6 car garage/workshop, and additional secure off-street parking.
