Luxury Las Vegas Real Estate Goes Green

Las Vegas real estate is going green. MGM City Center was the first LEED certified multi-use project in Nevada and now the Las Vegas homes market is following suit.
But the "best of the best" is without a doubt the Marquis Las Vegas project. Not only are the homes supremely energy efficient Smart Homes, they are knock your socks off gorgeous!

Walking through the models at Marquis Las Vegas by Blue Heron will have you voicing a rapidly rising crescendo of “oh wows!” Chosen by the National Association of Home Builders as the New American Home 2009, Marquis Las Vegas was featured during the International Builders Show as the epitome of green technology and innovative building techniques. These incredible homes are located in an ultra-exclusive neighborhood off of Tomiyasu Lane, an historical Las Vegas community that has been home to celebrities like Wayne Newton, Clark Gable, Carole Lombard, Robert Goulet, the Sultan of Brunei and Mike Tyson. The area contains several of Nevada’s most expensive properties, including estates ranging to more than 40 acres, but is just minutes from the Las Vegas Strip and Downtown.

Even as a Realtor who has literally seen thousands of luxury homes over the past 25 years, Marquis Las Vegas had me drooling! These homes have a distinct “desert contemporary” architectural style designed for entertaining and are packed with innovative features. From the zero edge pool, to the meditation room, to the waterfall flowing down the wall of the sunken outdoor patio, to the rooftop gardens, all your senses will be engaged and renewed. The master bath is a sheer delight – the master tub vibrates, sending soothing pulses throughout your body in time to relaxing music, and the steam shower features light therapy and rainbows, yes rainbows, that stimulate your brain.

And of course there is every type of technology that even computer geeks will find impressive. Homebuyers that choose the Smart House Package will actually spend two weeks with Microsoft, programming the entire home for their comfort and lifestyle. You can access the entire home from an I-phone, and if you can’t figure out what light switch to hit, you can call up a 24/7 hotline and they will do it for you!

I could go on and on about these homes, but you really have to see them to believe what you get. Each home is set on a half acre cul-de-sac lot next to Sunset Park which is set to undergo a $30 million dollar renovation. The Marquis courtyard style home plans can range from 4500 square feet to over 10,000 square feet and are exquisitely customized for each buyer according to their needs.

But the best part is: going green does not mean you have to sacrifice quality. The Marquis model home is a 9,000 square foot masterpiece, but since the energy for the home is both solar and solar thermal, you actually generate electricity back into the power grid for a net zero electrical balance. It is estimated that this home will run on natural gas and electricity for a mere $175 per month average.

And the price tag is extraordinarily reasonable for this level of luxury as well. Prices start at about $300 per foot finished, though they can go up to $425 per foot for the complete smart house and green features. To view some photos of this amazing project, visit our site at:
