LAS VEGAS, NV – According to reports, a residence in the small, unassuming town of Blue Diamond – located 23 miles southwest of Las Vegas – has been listed on the open market for $5.35 million. Originally a mining town founded in the 1940’s and now known for attracting outdoor sporting enthusiasts such as rock climbers and hikers due to its proximity to the Spring Mountains that encircle the Red Rock Canyon National Conservation Area, Blue Diamond is known far and wide as a refuge for those who wish to partake in the wonders of nature.
However, despite the local community being on the small side – there are currently only about 130 homes in Blue Diamond – making the luxury residence located at 4 Montana Court raise eyebrows at its price on the open market.
The 3,249-square-foot, modern-style home features floor-to-ceiling windows that offer views of the Spring Mountains and boasts a plethora of high-tech amenities, such as iPad and smartphone-controlled electromagnetic locks, Crestron-controlled lighting, thermostats, sound and window shades.
The home’s design incorporates Corten steel and concrete, which is said to show off a green or brown film on the surface – known as patina – produced by oxidation over a long period. The overall design aesthetic of the property is said to be “zen,” and also features ample amounts of wood and glass, which represents an organic “breathing, living element,” according to Anthony Spiegel, a Realtor with the Ivan Sher Group, Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices, Nevada Properties.
“It’s raw, yet refined,” he said. “What is so cool about this house is that it has a raw element, but is so deeply refined and sophisticated in its architectural and interior designs and materials that were chosen for both.”
The home also features a two-car oversized garage, a master suite located in the lower level, an upper level with a kitchen and living areas and two bedrooms. The name of the owner has not been publicly disclosed.
