This Stunning Development Redefines Luxury Living in Las Vegas

By Genevie Durano | March 5, 2018 | Home & Real Estate

This element-inspired development is setting the standard for upscale living in Las Vegas.


Ascaya, one of the most coveted luxury residential developments in Henderson, has been garnering accolades since it unveiled its first residences in 2015. Last July, it debuted its 23,000-square-foot, two-level clubhouse, which features ultra-luxe amenities such as a catering kitchen designed by Wolfgang Puck, a 3,000-square-foot fitness center, a children’s playroom, outdoor tennis courts and an 8,000-square-foot, zero-edge swimming pool with views of the Valley below.

Swaback Partners’ John E. Sather, who designed the $25 million clubhouse, wanted to create a space where the residents could come together as a community, says Darin Marques, Ascaya’s director of sales. Interior designer Todd-Avery Lenahan, Founder and Principal of TAL Studio, gave the space its modern touches, and Penta, which built the Wynn, was the general contractor.


“Ascaya is the most architecturally unique community in Southern Nevada, and at the forefront of the contemporary style movement that is sweeping Las Vegas,” says sales manager Darin Marques, who notes that Ascaya is set against the backdrop of the stunning McCullough mountain range and rises 1,000 feet above the valley floor. “While Ascaya can be classified as an ultra-luxury development, its owners are making it a true community for those who want to be surrounded by nature, inspiration and beautiful architecture.” To date, only four private residences are completed and occupied at Ascaya, but those who have closed on the homesites—which range from $485,000 to $5.9 million—can use the clubhouse. There are a total of 313 planned homesites, with completion of the development targeted between 10 to 15 years, according to Marques. In addition to Swaback Partners, Richard Meier & Partners, Marmol Radziner, Lake Flato, SB Architects and Hoogland Architecture are some of world-renowned architects that future homeowners can opt to design their Desert Contemporary dream homes.
