SkySide: Where the Desert Mountains and Sky Intersect

17Skyside is the place where the rolling desert hills meet the sky.  Designed to be luxuriously detailed and cohesive, it merges elements of nature – stone, sky, wood, and water – to become a truly unforgettable and artistic residence.

The theme of the home is immediately obvious: Quality and luxury. Made of steel and concrete, SkySide is perched atop the hillside of Summerlin, The Pointe at The Ridges.  From the clean geometric designs inside and out, to the neutrals, splashes of colour and texture, this is a 30-million-dollar unified masterpiece. The features are seemingly endless through this six-level, 23,748-square-foot home.

If there is a home is to warrant a high price tag, this one would be it.

 First Floor:

Starting the theme of light neutrals and gentle textures of Skyside are the gray limestone floors that gild the first floor. An oversized, two-sided gas fireplace stretches the length of the room with metal and stonework that reaches the ceiling above it.

Effortless cohesion is achieved between the great room and outdoor swimming pool, floor to ceiling windows pulling them into one.

The kitchen continues the luxurious, high quality standards of SkySide with its:

  • Stainless-steel, high-end appliances
  • Custom birch cabinets from Artesia Las Vegas
  • Lumix stone quartzite counter tops
  • An amply sized island
  • Custom wall art of intricately laid wood

Alongside the kitchen is an oversized dining room which overlooks the swimming pool, bringing forward the blending of space. A secondary kitchen is nearby with restaurant-quality appliances which, with its generous space would be ideal for catering.

Linking to the kitchen are a living room and game room which features a sunken bar and lounge built with slab glass and tile mosaic by Ann Sacks. The bar top is Thassos marble, bringing forward that bit of texture to liven the contemporary clean geometrics throughout. A pop of colour is added from an orchid container. Then, bringing the pool back into the space is a window the same length as the bar, as well as cleverly being able to open the room up to the swim-up bar.

Through piano-finished doors is a state-of-the-art theatre that can fit 10 oversized lounging recliners, which connects to the wet bar and bar seating for thorough cohesion of a luxury leisure space. This floor also features two oversized bedroom suites each with private baths.

 Second Floor:

Enjoying the view of the Strip, city coastline, Red Rock Country Golf Course, and the mountain is ideal on the 4,888-square-foot rooftop patio. It’s brought alive with lush landscaping and artificial grass, to still have the natural feeling of a yard, but on the second floor. The massive rooftop patio is fully equipped for cuisine with:

  • Stainless-steel grills
  • A deep-fryer
  • A dishwasher
  • A refrigerator

The entire outdoor kitchen is protected with a patio cover. And, that is not all the patio has to offer. It also has overhead air-conditioning and heating to help guests be comfortable at any time of day. Adding to the leisure space is a Jacuzzi hot tub with a pop-up movie screen, projector and full sound system within its sights, along with fire pits and torches to help light the space.

The icing to this already decadent cake is where this floor accesses the three-story master suite.

 Three-Story Master Suite:

On the first level, the master suite has its own living room, with a wall-sized flat-screen. This level also has a kitchenette, sitting patio and wraparound patio, making for an irreplaceable suite, even just in the first floor.

Continue to the second floor and there is an oversized bedroom with plenty of space for a queen or king bed, as well as floor to ceiling windows, harkening back to the cohesion of this home.

For the bathroom that sits on this floor of the suite, is an oversized shower, a wonder with:

  • Multiple sprayers
  • A rain showerhead
  • Tiled walls

Alongside the impressive shower are walk-in closets, a spa tub and custom cabinetry.

The third floor is ready to be whatever it needs to be to complete the master suite. It possesses a full 360-degree view with more floor-to-ceiling windows. Currently it’s designed as an office with a private bar, but can be adapted to what one feels would finish their needs of a truly luxury master suite. To top it off, giving it its name of SkySide, is an outdoor patio with a massive 10,474 square feet of outdoor living space.

Two Floors of Basement:

Not only are there three main levels, there are two basement levels, which can be accessed by either stairs or elevator. Part of it is an impressive 2,400-square-foot eight-car garage. This is also where the home’s possible maid’s quarters are, with its own private bath. The floor has an oversized laundry room, an equipped salon and massage room for even more irreplaceable features to this already spectacular home.

On the lower basement level, there is a half basketball court, as well as a fitness area comprehensively equipped with machines, weights, and even men’s and women’s bathrooms. For leisure, this floor is equipped with:

  • A bar
  • A wine cellar
  • A walkout outdoor meditation patio/zen garden
  • Air-conditioned dog run

It even has a sound-proof room that could be ideal for a music studio!

There are so many features that can be listed from this home, but the design alone is breathtaking, with the clean geometric shapes inside and out, with the gentle light neutrals with punctuating darker neutrals throughout. Then there are beautiful textured accents with marble, teak, metal, and bits of fur added in display. The contemporary elegance sits against serene desert mountains that meet with the open view of skies, making SkySide.
