Designed by Blue Heron, a MacDonald Highlands estate clocks in as Las Vegas’ highest-priced sale ever at a cool $25 million. Take a peek inside.

A testament to the talent of Las Vegas’ premier design-led development firm, 685 Dragon Peak Drive is a 15,000-square-foot estate that serves as the brand’s flagship, a property that highlights the skill of its deft architects, interior designers and builders from start to finish.
An outdoor fire pit with plenty of seating offers an ideal space to retreat to in the evenings.
Dubbed Vegas Modern 001, the Savant-equipped smart home is the pinnacle of what Blue Heron founder and owner Tyler Jones has been aiming to accomplish since his company’s inception in 2004. “Vegas Modern is the name of our design philosophy, and this home is meant to be the physical representation of what our philosophy is all about,” shares Jones, a native Las Vegan, whose family roots in the area span three generations.
“There’s not a whole lot of architectural history in Las Vegas for residential, but we do have some pretty interesting midcentury communities that have influenced different parts of it. I would argue that that has been lost over the decades, and we are very interested in being genuine and authentic when it comes to representing our Las Vegas roots,” he says of the home, which was heavily influenced by the Mojave Desert.
The sleek dining room boasts seating for up to 10.
Disappearing walls bring the outside in, a nod to the space’s biophilic design approach, while unobstructed views of the Strip and the arid landscape below give the property a true sense of place. A floating, translucent staircase connects the main and upper floors, where an epic sky lounge embraces Sin City’s affinity for entertaining.
Unobstructed views abound from the great room.
In addition to its three dedicated bedrooms, nine bathrooms and an 11-car garage, a more than 2,000-square-foot reflection pool gives the home the appearance of floating, as the body of water runs between the great room and primary bedroom. Sold fully furnished to the tune of $25 million by Kristen Routh-Silberman of Synergy Sotheby’s International Realty, who represented both the buyer and seller, its lucky new owners have certainly found a forever home.
The good life, indeed.
