If Money Were No Object, Here's Where These Vegas Insiders Would Live

By Vegas Staff | July 3, 2018 | Home & Real Estate

If money were no object, what part of Las Vegas would you choose to live in?

“If I had the choice today to live anywhere in the valley, I would choose to live in Blue Diamond. But money isn’t really the factor living there; it’s more about waiting for somebody to move! I’d choose this location because it has an intimate and completely different vibe than the rest of the valley, yet it’s close to all of the action. The weather there is generally cooler, too, and it’s located within the beautiful Red Rocks bordering the far west of our metropolis.”

“There’s an authenticity and spirit that makes Las Vegas’ historic neighborhoods—Scotch 80s, Rancho Circle, McNeil Estates among them—so appealing. These are 1950s- and ’60s-era homes, and while many have been upgraded or customized, there are so many stories within their walls. Look at Paradise Palms—who wouldn’t want to live in Robert De Niro’s house from Casino?”

“I love the unique, gorgeous homes in The Ridges, but my heart will always be in Green Valley. I love living on the east side of town—it’s an easy drive to the Strip, but also out to Boulder City, which I adore. It would be so hard to move to Summerlin, but if I ever make the plunge, it will be for The Ridges.”

“My absolute favorite spot right now is in the Huntridge neighborhood in the Arts District. Those midcentury modern houses have my heart, and the ones that have been revamped are absolutely gorgeous on the inside. Plus, the neighborhood itself is walking distance (imagine, walking to your favorite coffee shop every day!) to some incredible dining, shops and bars.”
