Entertainment capital of the world. Sin City.
These monikers are probably the first things that come to mind when you hear “Las Vegas.” And no doubt, these titles ring true. In no other place in the world can you find the most concentration of top artists, celebrities and talent at any time of the year. It’s the only place where world-renowned performers hold “residencies”– Cher, Barry Manilow, Celine Dion, Usher, Elvis.
The 4-mile Las Vegas Strip contains hotels and casinos that have either cameo’d or have been primary locations for numerous classic films through the decades, adding to the fame and, some might argue, the infamy that this desert city has gained. In the movie The Godfather, Michael Corleone wanted to buy a Las Vegas hotel and casino, thinking that entertainment was going to be huge. He was right.
Outside of classic movies, Las Vegas never stops churning out legendary moment after legendary moment as it has been–and continues to be–the site for enormous prizefights featuring names like Ali, Mayweather, and Pacquiao.
Las Vegas has come a long way from being an actual oasis in the desert (this makes the Bellagio water fountain show such an artistic homage to Las Vegas’ origins). But Las Vegas is so much more than just glitz, glamor, and gambling. Beyond the hotels, casinos, and clubs, Las Vegas has a wide range of luxurious neighborhoods that any couple, family, or person can be proud to call home.
Luxury living, Vegas-style
Custom architecture. Golf courses. Gated communities. Spectacular views. Exclusive amenities. If you have the bucks, you get an incomparably luxurious lifestyle that the various neighborhoods in Las Vegas offer. From single story luxury homes woven with an 18-hole championship golf course to elegant mansions overlooking The Strip, Las Vegas offers unparalleled comfort, beauty and style for those looking to reward themselves and their family.
Read on and find out which luxury neighborhood in Las Vegas is the one for you.
Hailed by Forbes Magazine as one of the three most exclusive communities in the US, life in The Ridges is as rarefied as its high-altitude location. From this guard-gated community, you can enjoy magnificent views of the Las Vegas Valley and the sparkling downtown that only a handful have the privilege to see. A members-only community center, Club Ridges, offers residents a private and exclusive haven to socialize while enjoying top-notch fitness facilities, tennis courts, steam rooms, and a resort-style pool.
Golfers are in for a treat as the championship course here, Bear’s Best Golf Course, was designed by the legend Jack Nicklaus himself. This par 72 course was conceptualized to replicate the courses Nicklaus himself played throughout the US and Mexico. It is, hands down, one of the country’s best planned golf courses.
If you are more of the outdoor type, Red Rock Canyon is a natural wonder just beckoning to be explored. The conservatory’s trails and hike paths are sure to be any runner’s, walker’s, or hiker’s delight.
This is an ideal community for growing families. At the heart of Summerlin is a vibrant, walkable downtown filled with shops, restaurants and event venues that everyone in the family can enjoy. Here you can find the Las Vegas Ballpark, home of the minor league baseball team Las Vegas Aviators. There’s also City National Arena for some pro hockey action. Kids can also enjoy the rink during open skate or maybe even be part of the Junior Golden Knights tournament.
While shopping and dining in Summerlin are world-class, its outdoor attractions are incomparable. Like The Ridges, Summerlin has easy access to Red Rock Canyon, offering myriad adventures for the wanderlust.
To balance the great outdoors, Summerlin is steeped in cultural sophistication. The Donald W. Reynolds Cultural Center is home to the Nevada Ballet Theatre who holds various performances throughout the year. And if reading and introspection are more up your speed, the Summerlin Library is the perfect nook for you.
Outside of Bear’s Best in The Ridges, Summerlin has more golf courses for you to get swinging at. There’s Eagle Crest, Highlands Falls, Palm Valley and more, including Nevada’s only two Tournament Players Club courses.
Sitting 15 miles away from the Las Vegas Strip and overlooking much of Henderson and Las Vegas Valley is MacDonald Highlands. This gate-guarded community is one of the most affluent neighborhoods in the US, ranking 7th highest in per capita income. Perhaps Nancy Walton Laurie’s purchase of a home here back in 2007 has got something to do with that. Ms. Laurie is heir to the Walmart fortune.
If golf is Summerlin’s calling card, tennis might be MacDonald Highlands’. Its Tennis Complex features five championship courts, including a stadium seating center court that hosts professional tournaments, clinics, and exhibitions.
Your furry family members are also very much welcome in MacDonald Highlands. It has two dog Parks where dogs of all sizes can roam and socialize. Of course, hoo-mans are not forgotten; the DragonRidge Country Club holds Yappy Hours in Dog Park 2, where dog-loving residents can mingle over some wine and cheese.
Want to be in the same neighborhood as Andre Agassi and Floyd Mayweather? Living with celebrities may be the last thing in your mind but their presence here is testament to Queensridge’s privacy, security and beauty. This guard-gated community is the site for luxurious custom homes ranging from the Mediterranean to Modern architecture with enviable views of the Spring Mountains, Red Rock Canyon and the Las Vegas Strip.
Those looking for quiet leisure can’t have a better starting point than the Queensridge clubhouse. Soak in the luxury in its spas, green belts, and landscaped gardens. The Badlands Golf Club is also just nearby if you want to swing a few holes.
For those seeking an active lifestyle, sports and activities for any age–humans and dogs!–abound in Queensridge. Whether you go in for rock climbing, swimming, skating, and running, the community is equipped for you. With its 11 lighted soccer fields, 3 dog runs, a 2.5 mile track, nearly two dozen tennis courts, and a jiu-jitsu academy, you’ll never run out of energetic pursuits in Queensridge.
The Summit Club is the most recent addition to the roster of Las Vegas’ luxury communities. It may be a relative newcomer but it is definitely a contender for Nevada’s most exclusive and most luxurious neighborhood.
Within The Summit’s 555-acres lies a lifestyle of elegant pleasure and play. Its centerpiece is a Tom Fazio-designed 18-hole championship golf course strictly for residents only.
Its clubhouse, called Club Village, can rival even the best hotels in Las Vegas (yes, Club Village is talking to you, Bellagio and Four Seasons). Here you and your family can enjoy any of the uber-luxurious amenities–from swimming pools, to spas, gyms, tennis courts, restaurants, and bars. If you’re more of the adventurous type, The Summit’s Outdoor Pursuits team can hook you up with trail hikes through Red Rock Canyon, water sports at Lake Mead, and camping in the Valley of Fire.
When it comes to the residences, the bespoke homes in The Summit are each of the triumphs of modern architecture. Whether you choose a desert bungalow or a club villa, these resort-style abodes perfectly meld luxurious indoor comfort with spectacular outdoor views and atmosphere.
Once voted the Best Master-Planned Community in Las Vegas, Southern Highlands offers the best of Las Vegas living: lush landscapes, small-town feel, and proximity to the Strip. If you’re looking to raise a family in Las Vegas, Southern Highlands is for you.
The Southern Highlands community is fond of festivals, giving your family lots of beautiful opportunities to make memories. There’s Memorial Day, Fall Festival, Summer Movies in the Park, and Holiday Tree Lighting to name a few. And every year, new events pop up to delight the community.
When it comes to the kids’ education, Southern Highlands is home to or near to quality schools at every level. Whether you choose to send them to private or public school, the kids can get topnotch instruction in or around the community.
The “tournament” in Tournament Hills comes from the Tournament Players Club (TPC). This is the world-class golf course in the heart of this neighborhood, which is one of the stops on the PGA Tour. If you haven’t gotten the drift yet, golf is the thing in Las Vegas outside of the Strip. The clubhouse and its amenities are exclusive to Tournament Hills residents, and being a resident sure comes with a lot of perks–access to the library and the performing arts center, the Hills Center Business Parks, the Plaza at Summerlin, and more.
This neighborhood may be known for golf, but the homes here are attractions unto themselves. The custom luxury houses here cover a variety of architectural styles and they sit on large lots. The smallest homes here span at least 4,000 square feet while others cover nearly 10,000 square feet. If you are looking for a large home for your family, you could do worse than start your search in Tournament Hills.
Country club living at its finest–that’s what you can expect from Anthem. And while most people come for world-class golf, many stay for the friendly atmosphere.
Like many of the previously mentioned elite neighborhoods, this master-planned community is built around an 18-hole championship course designed by golf legend Hale Irwin and golf architect Keith Foster. 5-star amenities are found across the estate, providing both relaxation and activity for every member of your family. With its excellent service, occasions are often celebrated here including weddings.
When it comes to the residences, the luxury, comfort, and security in this gate-guarded community is second to none. Despite its proximity to the Strip, the vibe here in Anthem is peaceful and light. The eye-catching waterfall entrance to the community is but a preview of the care and craft that went into designing the homes and spaces in Anthem. As one of the first master-planned golf communities in Henderson, Nevada, Anthem has carved a name for itself that equals prestige and luxury.
Ascaya calls its residences “inspiration homes.” And boy, are they truly inspired pieces of architecture and luxury. With majestic mountain and canyon views blending seamlessly with fine modern interior designs, Ascaya homes are the epitome of luxurious indoor-outdoor living. Ascaya is where the desert meets design.
Sitting south of Las Vegas and west of Lake Mead, Ascaya provides a welcome hometown charm of the Henderson kind as a counterpoint to the glitz of the Strip. The community is very walkable, both for leisure and for active fitness. Some of the best scenic walking trails in the area go through the McCullough Range and Ascaya itself. If you have a desire to connect with nature and explore the wild, Ascaya is ideal for you.
Despite its location at the heart of nature, Ascaya is close to everything else you and your family would need–private and public schools, shopping areas, resorts, and golf courses. It’s also only 9 miles from the Las Vegas Strip.
Ascaya is known both for crafting custom homes and keeping its residents safe and private. Henderson was ranked as America’s second safest city. It’s simply one of the best communities for your family.
Dubbed “Billionaire’s Row,” Enclave Court is as elite as it gets in Las Vegas luxury living. Home purchases here are usually the most expensive home purchase in Las Vegas for that given year. For example: David Copperfield’s $17.55M purchase of an estate here in 2016 and Steve Wynn’s $13M purchase of “Museo” in 2018. Both properties are valued much higher today.
The prices of homes here may be steep but they more than live up to the community’s striking nickname. Every property in Enclave Court is a masterpiece of absolute opulence, and each one is built and designed with a unique identity. Each residence is a luxurious world of its own. Designs range from classic to modern architecture, and every owner has of course customizations done to their taste. All other perks mentioned in the luxury neighborhoods above also apply here–five-star amenities, world-class golf courses, hotel level services–but Billionaire’s Row just has that special ring to it. Enclave Court is on a whole different level of luxury.
