This year’s New American Home, built in Las Vegas, Nevada, and open for tours during KBIS 2019, was an amazing property.
Built up in the hills, in the Ascaya community, overlooking Vegas, it showcased all kinds of new materials and technology, with a masculine edge to its contemporary style. It was designed and built by Sun West Custom Homes.
These New American Homes always have a masculine look about them to me. This year, I felt it was really pronounced.
It felt very Vegas, very luxury, and very bold.
I’m sharing some photos from my tour today. If you like contemporary architecture, indoor/outdoor living, spacious layouts focused on entertaining……then this is the house for you!
I have to say, I really liked the curb appeal of this house. I’m in love with black houses and I so appreciate the one-story layout and the low profile of the house from the street. It feels very approachable to me from these views.
Here is the view to that courtyard area at the entry, from inside the house. Those front doors were really remarkable.
The living room is right in front as you walk into the home. Just beyond that room, a wall of glass that opens to the view of Vegas.
The linear fireplace extends out onto the expansive patio.
Kitchen and Living Room Open Up to Outdoor Patio
Sliding glass doors are everywhere, opening up the outdoors to the interior and creating one massive property, perfect for entertaining a crowd.
You can see in the pic below, the same idea was done at the kitchen, with the kitchen cabinetry wall seeming to run through the glass to the outdoors.
Love the perfectly flush countertop edge on the island, below.
The outdoor patio was like a full house outside, equipped with a kitchen, bar, fireplace, seating, even a shower. A pool too, of course!
On this end of the house, there was a bedroom and exercise room with bathrooms attached.
Some of those 3 dimensional tiles I saw at KBIS2019 earlier in the day, were used here in this shower. Love how the mirror repeats the design of those tiles.
Master Bedroom and Bath
On the opposite side of the home, the master suite opens up to the pool deck.
Yes, that guy was checking under the bed because the bed was CANTILEVERED. That’s right, no visible support!
A corner linear fireplace with your cantilevered bed…..why not?
The master bath had one of new Kohler curvy tubs I saw at KBIS2019 earlier in the day. It looked great in front of that window with the private patio beyond.
Here’s the large vessel sink and then the huge walk-in steam shower in the master. You would be living large in this master suite, for sure.
That is a lit agate slab in the closet, beyond.
Back up at the front of the house, the home office opens to that entry courtyard. You can see the glassed in garage, beyond there.
Here are a couple of the other bathrooms in the house with some interesting tile and nice finishes.
The show garage
And if all that didn’t feel masculine enough for you, then here is the luxury garage that will change your mind. This garage is not worried about showing off a mess inside with all that glass, this is a show and party garage. :-)
This is the view from the enclosed entry area as you walk up to the front door.
Okay, so maybe few of us would ever be able to build or own a home like this. I do love touring though, to see all the new products, innovations and design trends.
This home truly reflects a concept of modern luxury Vegas. Check out more about this home at this link.
