Realtor John Lendacky patiently waited to build until the lot of his choice was available at The Ridges in Summerlin.
"It was well worth the wait," he said of the estate that offers a panoramic view of the Las Vegas Valley.
The nearly 10,000-square-foot Frank Lloyd Wright-inspired estate features five elements throughout the home's design and exterior landscape that include wood, metal, earth, water and fire. According to Lendacky, consistency was a key component of the design process.
"I wanted common threads and a consistent look throughout the home and landscape," he said. "The five rare elements made this easy and fun to accomplish, and the result is truly inspiring."
The home features a contemporary design, incorporating a copper patina roof, sleek sandstone flooring imported from Israel, a gourmet kitchen, upstairs game room/home theater and two master bedrooms with Las Vegas Strip views.
The three-tiered backyard was designed for entertaining. Outdoor amenities include an infinity-edge pool with wet deck, spa and waterfall; an outdoor cooking area; eight fire pots and a large fire pit. All major rooms feature retractable pocket doors, allowing for a seamless blend of indoor and outdoor living areas.
Lendacky chose The Ridges because of its elevated location, sense of exclusivity, well-manicured streetscapes and architectural diversity.
"There isn't a better place to call home," he said.
