Jewel of the Desert
On a dark desert highway … no, it’s not the Hotel California but the home of your dreams on the edge of Blue Diamond, an old mining town west of Las Vegas. Bold in design and built from concrete and steel, the residence is a striking example of modern architecture, yet fits organically and effortlessly within the surrounding desert landscape.
Address: 4 Montana Court, Blue Diamond, NV 89004
Square Feet: 3,249
Why We Love It
Just look at all those windows! The home is surrounded in floor-to-ceiling glass with sliding doors that open up the floorplan in a manner rarely seen—even in the world of exclusive luxury homes. Designed by Punch Architecture and built by Bugbee Custom Homes, it’s difficult to find an estate with a more engaging combination of indoor and outdoor spaces.
Why It’s “So Las Vegas”
There’s more to Las Vegas than bright lights and neon. Despite being only about 30 miles from The Strip, this desert compound takes full advantage of the tree-lined scenery with the charm and character of Blue Diamond outside the front door—and the beauty of the Spring Mountains and Red Rock Canyon within biking distance.
How Does This Home Make My Life Easier?
The high elevation provides an effortless breeze and easy climate that’s a few degrees less than whatever is happening in the heart of the Las Vegas Valley. No fuss, no muss and no tourists. Just enjoy the calm, family-oriented environment of Blue Diamond. Wine, beer and artisan pizza is a short walk away at Cottonwood Station, the town’s only restaurant.
The wow factor is immediate. Just look at the front entrance.
Glass, concrete and steel never looked so good.
Sit down and stay a while.
Just like everything else here, the kitchen feels one with the environment.
The square footage doesn’t even include all that walkable outdoor space. Think of it as a bonus.
Natural light is everywhere. Even in the bathroom.
You can feel the breeze just looking at this photo.
Yes, there’s an outdoor shower. Don’t worry, the neighbors won’t see a thing.
Look carefully. Solar panels are already in place for an “off-the-grid” lifestyle.
Whatever you’re currently waking up to … it’s not as cool as this.
Hang out by the fire pit. (Beer and ghost stories optional.)
