Innovative, Leading-Edge Design
How you spend your time matters more to most individuals than how many things they have bought. The people you choose to spend your time with and where your time is spent is what really matters. As such, you should live in the utmost style and comfort. Your home should be equal parts effortless and innovative as you enjoy time with family and friends. In every aspect of your life, home matters, as does who makes your home. That is why I sat down with Blue Heron Design/Build, leaders in luxury home design. Their owner and founder’s story is a unique one, and it starts right here in our very own Las Vegas. A fourth-generation Nevadan, Tyler Jones was brought up in this industry from working in construction with his father at a young age. He began his design career by working for architects while still in high school. He later moved to Boulder, Colorado, to study architecture at the University of Colorado. After that, he founded Blue Heron in 2004 and began his first project, Stone Canyon, built in what is now Blue Heron’s trademark style, Vegas Modern. Just like it sounds, it’s a modern take on Vegas living in response to the climate, culture and lifestyle of his esteemed hometown. Tyler walked me through the design philosophy behind their custom homes.
“We believe building a home should be a seamless process. This innovative and integrated design/build approach to business is evident in the creative and distinctive homes that we build,” Tyler says.
You should feel confident that the entire team involved in the design and build of your home is working together with the same vision in mind. The level of integrated design/build services that Blue Heron offers is unparalleled. From the architect to the interior designer, general contractor, landscape and pool designer, Blue Heron’s full range of services will make sure you get an exquisite home.
And indeed, the customization process is extensive but exciting. You are involved in every step of the way, from the inception of the house to the laying of the last stone. Blue Heron also offers multiple pre-designed custom communities in which to build your dream home, each a bit different than the previous. Today, we’ll take a sneak peek at three of their newest communities.
Sleek. Modern. Innovative. Carved into Black Mountain’s foothills, Obsidian is a private, double-gated community of 33 homes with panoramic views of the Las Vegas Valley, including the Las Vegas Strip and vast mountain landscape. Each of the three-floor plans, ranging from approximately 5,000 to 7,600 square feet, takes Blue Heron’s signature Vegas Modern architecture to the next level. An impeccable desert landscape, energy-efficient technology and luxurious amenities are only the beginning.
Overlooking the shimmering Lake Las Vegas, Vantage is a stunning gated community of 37 homes that will feature a new single-story floor plan and two all-new two-story floor plans. Ranging from 2,800 to 4,700 square feet, these Vegas Modern homes allow you to take in the flawless desert landscape and stand-out amenities you won’t find anywhere else.
Perched on a hillside in Southern Highlands, The Bluffs is a private, double-gated community overlooking the Las Vegas Valley with stunning views of the mountains and the Las Vegas Strip. This community offers three flexible floor plans ranging from approximately 5,000 square feet to more than 6,900 square feet. These 39 elegant homes feature tranquil courtyard entries as the spacious great rooms invite you in across the threshold. The clean lines and seamless flow of these terraced homes allow you to take in the views.
Blue Heron is an industry leader, an award-winning design/build firm with more than 30 accolades to its name including being voted the gold winner of the Best of Las Vegas in the Luxury Homebuilder category in 2017 and 2018. As a comprehensive lifestyle brand, Blue Heron is with you every step of the way, from site selection, architecture, interior design, construction and furnishings. That level of service is what sets them apart from other builders in town. Celebrating its 15th year of business this year, Blue Heron is going to continue to innovate and push the boundaries of what Vegas Modern means to its hometown.
