Realtors attend MacDonald Highlands event

Realtors attended a special viewing of nine estate homes at MacDonald Highlands in Henderson March 24.

Agents were treated to lunch and were able to tour the development via private shuttle buses with designated stops at featured homes.

Showcased during the event were a collection of hillside estates with views of the Las Vegas Strip.

Additional custom homes were adjacent to DragonRidge Country Club, the private golf course within the development.

“Ordinarily these custom estates would be seen by appointment only, making it a time-consuming process for the agents.” said Rich MacDonald, developer of MacDonald Highlands. “This was a great opportunity for them to enjoy these spectacular homes.”

Showcased homes offered the agents a chance to see the latest in home technology, custom furnishing and creative designs. Featuring single-, two- and three-story homes, highlights included a 1-acre castle estate with a full Irish pub and water-spouting dragons, a split-level hacienda with multiple courtyards, three second-story swimming pools, adult lounges, disappearing walls and extravagant backyards.

These custom homes range from 5,100 to 11,000 square feet and are priced from $2.4 million to $6.5 million.

MacDonald Highlands is a 1,200-acre community with five custom home neighborhoods. 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 panoramic views of the Las Vegas Strip. These custom lots range from a quarter of an acre to more than 21/2 acres and are priced starting at $500,000.

DragonRidge Country Club is a private 18-hole course designed by Jay Moorish and David Druzisky.

The award-winning clubhouse, built of stone and glass, features a gourmet steak house viewing the Las Vegas Strip, two mixed grills and lounges, a brand-new fitness center, swimming pool and an extensive golf pro shop. Private golf membership is limited.
