Log-framed estate in Mt. Charleston, Las Vegas’s best-kept secret, offers a quiet four-season mountain lifestyle just 45 minutes from the famed Strip
Offered at US$3,950,000, the home perfectly melds a rustic aesthetic with luxury living, showcasing mountain views of protected National Forest land, mature Ponderosa pines and endless blue skies
New York, New York (December 14, 2021) — Those accustomed to the urban glitz and glamour of the global destination of Las Vegas will be delighted to discover this mountain retreat an easy 45 minutes away. The town of Skye Canyon is but 10 miles away, with its charming restaurants, boutiques and other services, such as hospitals, schools, gas stations and grocery stores. Towering almost 12,000 feet above the desert floor, Mt. Charleston is snow-covered half of the year and home to a popular ski resort. The surrounding Humboldt-Toiyabe National Forest offers hiking trails and camping opportunities right out the front door.
A magnificent log-frame residence located in this hidden enclave with breathtaking mountain panoramas is now on the market, offering a unique alternative to Las Vegas’s urban living. Located in the Spring Mountains to the northwest of the city proper, this home on Seven Dwarfs Road enjoys four changing seasons and cooler temperatures than that of the city’s desert floor. Once considered a weekend getaway, the area has evolved into a full-time residential community.
This exceptional estate, spanning 6,735 square feet with five bedrooms and five-and-one-half baths, is represented by Mariah Armknecht and Belen Clark of Elite Homes. Christie’s International Real Estate is providing global marketing support. Said Kate Mannix of Christie’s International Real Estate, “Mt. Charleston is an underestimated living alternative for the prospective Las Vegas buyer. It’s a truly scenic and tranquil enclave, in stark contrast with the neon-lit hustle and bustle of the city beyond. This home is one of the jewels in Mt. Charleston’s crown and offers the best of both worlds for those looking for a quiet lifestyle and urban energy close by.”
The multi-level home is accessed through grand wrought-iron entry doors which open into a striking foyer crafted from hewn wood logs and accented by a dramatic wooden staircase and heated stone and tile floors. Soaring high-beamed ceilings in the great room and elsewhere capitalize on the spectacular outdoor views.
Another centerpiece of the great room is a magnificent stone hearth that serves as a focal point of the living space. The home’s footprint of more than 6,700 square feet is further enhanced by wraparound balconies and terraces that offer seasonal venues for entertaining guests.
The chef’s kitchen is notable for its granite surfaces and state-of-the-art appliances, including a Viking gas range and Sub-Zero wine storage unit. The home also offers a modern office space, a basement gym, and an upper-level billiards room/game room. Outside, a man-made creek bed provides a soothing atmospheric touch.
Ms. Clark added: “This meticulously crafted timber home is only one of a handful of properties available that can offer the Las Vegas resident a truly unique alpine lifestyle as an alternative to living in the desert below. While the Mt. Charleston enclave has traditionally been a second-home market, we’re now seeing many Las Vegas dwellers consider this area as a primary residence location.”
