Picture-perfect palace: Estate combines timeless design and incredible views

This house epitomizes incredible materials and custom finishes,” says Gavin Ernstone, broker/owner of Simply Vegas, about the home at 15 Flying Cloud Lane in the Azure community in The Ridges of Summerlin.

Dramatic 15-foot, double glass doors at the entrance and opulent touches throughout the house such as imported marble, onyx and Scavolini cabinetry combine for a luxurious look in a unifying color palette of white, gray and blue.

An open floor plan with two adjacent living areas “flows very nicely,” Ernstone says. The floor-to-ceiling fireplace surrounded by 30 slabs of gray marble, accented with glasswork, is framed by a series of diamond-shaped mirrors, which serve as a stunning focal point for the main living area. Crystal lights cascade from the 28-foot ceiling in the formal dining room providing an elegant gathering place for meals.

The main level, with expansive, pocket doors, brings the outside in, opening onto a resort-style deck. “You have this enormous yard with incredible views of the mountains,” Ernstone says.

The home’s three-quarter-acre lot includes a backyard with an oversized heated pool with spa, a cabana and ample seating around the pool deck, a bocce ball court and putting green.

White and cobalt Scavolini cabinets, a marble waterfall-edge island with bar seating and pure white-onyx countertops continue the color theme into the spacious kitchen.

The main-level master suite has plush, gray carpet, a luxurious bathroom with a central tub and an expansive, dual-entry marble shower with an exquisitely patterned marble floor.

The floating staircase, with chrome and glasswork, leads to an upper-level, split-entry private master suite with balcony. The master bath features two showers separated by a tub.

The 12,025-square-foot estate, which is being sold fully furnished, has five bedrooms including the two master suites, 10 bathrooms, a temperature-controlled wine cellar, an elevator, a two-person office, a game/media room, a gym with salon, powered window coverings and a comprehensive home automation system. The home is on the market for $9,999,000.
