The Tor Barstad designed home offers a sophisticated and seamless transition between the indoor and outdoor living with disappearing glass walls that showcase unobstructed, panoramic views of the Valley.

The 5 bed 7.5 bath estate was originally built in 2015 by Gemini Development and embraces luxury living in every aspect. Soaring ceilings lead to a modern Chef’s kitchen, which boasts beautiful waterfall marble and granite countertops and a one-of-a kind dramatic wine wall.

Disappearing glass walls open to outdoor resort living; Alfresco entertaining overlooking a 3-sided infinity pool, spa, rainfall wall water feature, fireplace, social bar and dramatic linear fire pit. The impeccable views and luxurious outdoor amenities are a masterful blend that create a true and unrivaled oasis.

Luxury listing agent, Tami Henderson of Russ Lyon Sotheby’s International Realty said she utilized several different platforms, including high-profile magazines, social media, and customized websites specific to the home to achieve a global reach in the marketing of the home.

When it came to showings Henderson said her team put safety first but still delivered a top-notch experience for the dozens of qualified buyers who viewed the home.

“This home needed to be experienced to be fully appreciated and with the arrival of COVID-19 we had to be creative in our efforts to achieve this, along with ensuring we were protecting everyone’s health. To showcase the home, we arranged for multiple photo shoots capturing the home at different times of the day, a professional video and offered virtual tours both pre-recorded and live. We endeavored to make each showing a celebration. We made every attempt to keep everyone safe while delivering a truly memorable experience. This was best achieved through private, in-person showings which were complete with a sanitizing station, catered hors d’oeuvres, champagne, and breathtaking views,” said Henderson.

The main floor of the home boasts the great room, chef’s kitchen, master retreat, an executive office, and two of the four guest suites. The lower-level guest retreat is accessed via a floating staircase with a 22ft soaring glass window-wall backdrop or private elevator. This estate truly represents luxury living at its finest. Henderson said the Desert Mountain community and club amenities were also major selling points.

“It was imperative that we were able to share information about living in Desert Mountain and the Desert Mountain Club. Being a resident of Desert Mountain, a Club member, and a member of the HOA board, I was fully prepared to share information on the security and unparalleled amenities Desert Mountain has to offer,” Henderson said.

Luxury Agent Kelly Jones represented the buyer. Like other luxury buyers, Jones said it was important for her to have a clear understanding of exactly what her buyer was really seeking, and what was essential in finding the home of their dreams.

“I often tell people that it is not unusual to get a sense that they have found the right home the moment they walk in the door. This was true when my wonderful buyers walked through the door of this magnificent estate. That said, we were very discriminating and our due diligence took some time and we used a number of ‘experts’ to scrutinize every aspect of the house. It was worth it. My clients could not be happier. The home is a perfect fit,” said Jones.
