Synergy Sotheby’s International Realty

People often say function over form—or more rarely, form over function. But why should you have to choose? The best homes are artistic and pragmatic. They are comfortable to live in and stylish enough to enjoy living in them. For the ultimate in desert extravagance, treat yourself to waterfront, resort-style living at Lake Las Vegas, located in the northeast corner of Henderson, Nevada, compliments of Sotheby’s. Comprising multiple gated family neighborhoods, the community of Lake Las Vegas offers contemporary designs crafted with spacious open floor plans and exquisite custom features. Nowadays preconstructed and box-built homes are unreasonable to live in. Why not make your house into your dream home with a custom lot? There are several 1-acre lots available in an exclusive gated enclave, providing the opportunity to create precisely the custom home you want to construct in this enviable location. 

However, there is much more to where you live than just a house. Enjoy yourself, and take part in some community activities. It is also a lifestyle that you are buying. The comfort of living in Lake Las Vegas is unparalleled. Set along the lake are the Reflection Bay Golf Club and its lavish 32,000-square-foot clubhouse with golf shop. This challenging par-72 golf course, designed by Jack Nicklaus, was ranked one of America’s 100 Greatest Public Courses by Golf Digest and was listed No. 4 in Nevada by Golf Week. In the community, there are even two fully functioning hotels so you can have friends and family over any time.

The picturesque lakeside village of MonteLago offers award-winning waterfront dining, live music, entertainment and stylish boutique shopping. You can dine alfresco while taking in the spectacular desert sunsets. Multiple bistros, taverns and dining experiences are set up around the waterfront, the perfect place to enjoy a meal. Another perk is the brand-new residents-only sports club. This private club offers traditional exercise equipment, as well as more exciting option such as yoga, tennis,  steam rooms and a spa in their immaculate facilities. And if you ever get bored of swimming in the breathtaking waters of the lake, you can take a dip in the family and lap pools on site. However, there is no reason to sit back if you don’t want to. If you enjoy a more active lifestyle, then there are indeed still things for you to do. There are more than 180 miles of hiking, cycling and equestrian trails fanning out from Henderson into the surrounding wilderness, including Lake Mead, Lava Butte and maybe some rock climbing for the more adventurous. But the centerpiece of this luxurious community has to be its 320-acre freshwater lake with 10 miles of stunning shoreline. Residents of Lake Las Vegas enjoy virtually endless recreational opportunities, from paddle boarding, kayaking or just swimming in the pristine waters of the lake. Relax under the shady canopy of an electric pontoon boat, or take a yacht cruise from the full-service marina. Don’t be afraid to move in here; new homes are going up every day, and one of them could be yours.
