MacDonald Highlands offers 2 custom estates at auction

In the community of MacDonald Highlands is a hidden canyon of 14 lots. Two custom estates within the canyon, built by Rich MacDonald, developer of MacDonald Highlands, will be going up for auction March 6. The homes had been constructed to showcase the unusual canyon and the art of hillside building. All of the lots have been sold and the homes are no longer needed as a sales tool for the development.

“These two homes, On the Edge and Pointe of View, were built by my own company because we noticed buyers were hesitant to purchase a hillside lot,” said Rich MacDonald, developer of MacDonald Highlands.

“The houses are completely decorated, furnished and have incredible, commanding views of the Las Vegas Strip. We invite prospective buyers to come out to the open houses that are being held each weekend.”

Both MacDonald Highlands homes are 6,500 square feet with views of the Las Vegas Strip. Features includes personal home theatres, wine cellars, entertainment rooms, gourmet kitchens with Wolf and Miele appliances, elevators, disappearing walls of windows, large balconies and infinity-edged swimming pools and spas. These custom homes are available for sale before the auction, priced at $2.8 and $2.9 million. Broker participation is welcome.

MacDonald Highlands, hidden behind its two guarded gates and landscaping, encompasses 1,200 acres of mountainous terrain while incorporating DragonRidge Country Club and 10 acres of parks into its development. Four custom home neighborhoods are available with custom lots. Each neighborhood features its own distinct topography and views.

Buyers can choose from a variety of terrains including golf frontage, multi-level pads or hillside elevations with views of the golf course, mountain range, or views of the Las Vegas skyline. These custom lots range from 1/4 acre to more than two acres. Prices start in the $300,000s.

DragonRidge Country Club is a private, 18-hole championship golf course. The stone-and-glass clubhouse features a formal dining room and lounge, a separate mixed grill and lounge, exercise facility, swimming pool, a golf pro shop and a ballroom seating more than 300 guests. Social membership to the clubhouse is provided upon application approval.

Visit the information center at 1730 W. Horizon Ridge Parkway. To get there, take Interstate 215, the Las Vegas Beltway, to Valle Verde Drive and travel south to the corner of Valle Verde and Horizon Ridge Parkway. The office is open seven days a week.
