When it comes to the world of real estate, jumping over obstacles and through flaming hoops isn’t far from the limits some realtors will go for the opportunity to land a multi-million-dollar property. In the case of one luxury property in Summerlin, for Rich Robledo and his team at Acclaim Real Estate, the process was much simpler.

Prior to being put on the market in early 2016, the property had only two previous homeowners to date, the second being Nancy Nelson, a good friend of Robledo’s.

“Nancy has been in the valley for quite some time, and knows several other agents,” says Robledo, founder of Acclaim Real Estate. “I was honored when she chose me to help her with the sale of the home.” 

So what makes this $2.75 million property so extravagant? A combination of modern luxury, European elegance and a prime location.

Located in the Tournament Hills community along the greens of TPC Summerlin, this five-bedroom, seven-bathroom home includes a Las Vegas Strip view and embodies everything that denotes luxury and sophistication.

“The listing agents in Tournament Hills are all great. It’s an incredible opportunity to be selected to sell a property in the community and I am happy to be one of the listing agents in there now,” Robledo says.

Built in 1998, this property sits on approximately 8,000 square feet and includes a myriad of refined features including custom ironwork, a laundry shoot, marble and stone flooring, and faux paintings and artwork on the walls throughout the house. In addition, the house also contains a variety of built-in features such as fireplaces, entertainment centers, and sound system, vacuum, security, saltwater and fertilizing systems. 

In 2009, when in the market for a new home, Nelson said the house was full of elements that caught her eye and sold her on the property upon her initial visit. The property itself was picturesque and the artistic details in the interior design and architecture created a unique look to the house. The quality of workmanship and the maturity of the yard added to the property’s splendor, not to mention the abundance of space.

“Size was a factor,” says Nelson. “The three extra bedrooms allowed each of my grandchildren to have their own. I liked the very spacious and workable kitchen and eating area and formal dining room. I also liked the neighborhood. I like a guard gated community and the amenities of the golf course, tennis courts and park for children to play.”

From the majestic fountain highlighting the grand entrance and the stately iron works leading up the main staircase and accenting some of the windows, to the archways, raised ceilings and iron balconies, this house is abundant in architectural and interior design embellishments. With a basis of European elegance, the ambiance of the property transports residents and their guests from the standard Las Vegas motif to the chic and splendid setting of Italy or France.

The first floor is designated as the main living area, located on which are a great room with 30-foot ceilings and a built in fireplace, a spacious office and den, each with custom built-in cabinetry, and two bedrooms, including the master suite, which has a built in fireplace and entertainment center, large Jacuzzi tub, separate shower and two walk-in closets.

And for the at-home chef, the spacious kitchen includes a large eating area, a six burner gas island stove, two ovens, an oversized refrigerator and freezer, two dishwashers, custom alder wood cabinets, a granite double sink and a pass-through to the formal dining room which contains its own unique feature—a built-in wine refrigerator.

Located on the second level of the property are three more bedrooms and a family room with wet bar, refrigerator, dishwasher, fireplace and built in entertainment center.

And when it comes to luxury, no estate is complete without regal lion statues and this home incorporates those as well, framing the sides of the backyard’s custom pebble technology and saltwater pool. Multiple French doors extend the entertaining space to the backyard which not only features the pool and spa, but also a large built-in barbecue with bar and seating, outdoor fans and misting system. It’s an entertainer’s delight.

“When you walk in the door you’re happy to be there. It’s a great entertainment home,” says Nelson. “I've had as many as 150 guests and never did the home feel crowded.”

While this property sits as a highlight in their 2016 property client list, this estate isn’t the only high-end luxury property Acclaim Real Estate and Robledo have in their wings for 2016. In addition to the Tournament Hills property, Acclaim is working on two additional properties located in the Mandarin and in the Ridges, each to be listed at over two million dollars.

“At Acclaim, we are driven by passion for our client’s needs, putting our own ego aside to ensure all their needs are met and the real estate process is as pleasant as possible,” Robledo says.
