Las Vegas Home Featuring “Little Italy” Street Design Sells for Nearly $6 Million
LAS VEGAS, NV – A strikingly unique mansion on sale in the gated Las Vegas community known as The Ridges in Summerlin that features a cobblestone Italian street complete with faux storefronts has sold for nearly $6 million.
Dubbed “Little Italy” and located at 15 Bright Hollow Court in The Ridges’ affluent gated Azure community, the home was originally listed for $6.5 million, with the eventual sale being finalized on May 30 for $5.9 million to a homeowner currently living in The Ridges.
The owners of the six-bedroom mansion, Lara and David Stone, spared no expense to create a stunning replica of an Italian street in the backyard of their home, located on a 0.6-acre plot of land.
Built by the Stones in 2011, the three-story, 9,771 square-foot home features six en suite bedrooms, formal living and dining, an executive office/library with built-ins, a craft room/office and an elevator.
The backyard has a lightwell in its basement that is located under the backyard, and in an effort to spruce it up in an unusual way, the couple took a suggestion from Lara’s mother to build a European street scene around it. With the Stones having visited Italy multiple times, it seemed only natural to use it as inspiration, they said.
The result is an ultra-realistic replica of an Italian street – “Via Di Pietra” which translates to “Stone Street” – complete with cobblestone floors, fake storefronts with windows and doors, and quaint little cafe tables. The storefronts, while fake, nonetheless contain rooms behind them, such as a wine cellar and a home theater.
Other amenities in the house include a pool, an outdoor fire pit, a basketball court. Crestron 4 Smart Home Technology, and a four-car garage and porte-cochere entry.
