Shelter Realty agent Paul Rowe acted as the buyer’s agent on the purchase of a 12,000 square foot custom home in the upscale neighborhood of MacDonald Highlands. The $1.7 million dollar sale on 586 Lairmont Pl, Henderson NV closed on November 30th, 2015.
Originally constructed in 2010, this property is set to be completely renovated and reinserted back into the Las Vegas real estate market by July 2016.
I interviewed Paul about the upcoming plans for this project and here were his comments about the sale as well as the impending renovation plans.
This was a very interesting purchase. MacDonald Highlands was hit particularly hard during the recession, but is coming back strong now. The home was originally completed in 2010 and eventually was foreclosed upon in 2013. A new owner took possession in 2013 but never occupied the property. They had a grand vision to expand the property even larger; however, they eventually decided not to pursue the renovation, but not before completely demo-ing the property down to the floor boards and studs throughout the entire property.
It was placed back on the market in 2015 in this unfinished condition, but being such a daunting project, the retail buyers weren’t biting and the initial pricing was too high for the investors. The new owners I represented came in and picked it up at a pretty good time.
The home really is going to be like a new home for whomever buyers it after the renovation. It was barely ever lived in and now it is being reworked from the top to bottom with new everything. The pool will be new, landscaping new. All the finishes and fixtures, new, low voltage electronics throughout as well.
I love the new floor plan. It maintains the large capacity as a high profile entertainment home but is laid out so efficiently, a family will feel right at home. It is amazing how the rooms are interconnected. When you’re in it, it feels like a grand house but you still know what is going on in other areas of the home unlike some cavernous homes I’ve been in before.
The views are phenomenal. This house has a 4000 square foot finished roof deck. I am not joking, there are clubs on The Strip that don’t have this kind of space. You can see the entire Las Vegas valley from up there.
The current developers are already proceeding on the renovation and delivery is expected in late June 2016. There are opportunities for the eventual resale buyer to come in earlier during the renovation if they wish, and to take the home in a different direction prior to its completion. This is something that would have to be negotiated but as building from dirt in MacDonald Highlands can easily take about 24 months, it is a great opportunity to have like new construction that can be ready in only 4-5 months.
