In the private mountainside community of Ascaya, located in Henderson, NV, a new residential project called The Canyon at Ascaya aims to set a new standard for luxury living.

The Canyon will be just 20 minutes from the Las Vegas Strip, offering a serene retreat near the city’s vibrant culture, adding to a growing number of options for luxury homebuyers looking to settle down in Sin City.

And there’s no shortage of wealthy buyers scooping up properties in (and around) the city.

Las Vegas is increasingly becoming a hotspot for luxury home buyers, including celebrities seeking privacy and exclusive amenities away from the public eye. Celine Dion sold a house here for $30 million last year, setting a new local real estate record and making a killer profit in the process.

Actor Mark Wahlberg bought himself a $14.5 million bungalow in The Summit Club (which he has since sold) while waiting for his mansion to be built on a separate 2.5-acre lot in the same community, which he purchased for $15.6 million. But the newest enclave isn’t necessarily targeting high rollers.

The Canyon at Ascaya will offer architecturally significant homes designed by acclaimed Nevada-based firm, Blue Heron, known for its integrated architectural, interior design, and construction services.

Sales are set to launch this spring, with potential buyers encouraged to register online for more details. But we’re here to give you a sneak peek inside the modern desert abodes.

Each home in The Canyon will be crafted to be a work of art, featuring a modern desert design that maximizes views and privacy.

These residences are strategically positioned across elevated terraces to enhance the connection between indoor and outdoor spaces. Large glass doors and expansive windows are designed to bring in natural light and offer residents unobstructed views of the surrounding desert canyon landscape.

The homes will range in size from 3,391 to 4,407 square feet, with configurations that include three and four bedrooms. The design emphasis is on creating spaces that are both aesthetically pleasing and functionally sophisticated.

The residences boast dual primary suites, spacious great rooms, and a layout that promotes seamless flow from indoor to outdoor living areas.

Beyond the stunning architecture, The Canyon promotes a lifestyle enriched with wellness and relaxation. The community features landscaped communal areas with pools, spas, and outdoor kitchens. Additionally, private wellness parks with yoga decks and meditation spaces offer residents opportunities for personal health and tranquility.

“Our architectural philosophy is rooted in the belief that a home should be a sanctuary, and at The Canyon, we’ve created sanctuaries that celebrate the distinct canvas of the desert landscape,” shares Chris Beucler, President of Blue Heron. “In every detail of The Canyon homes, you’ll find a commitment to excellence, sustainability, and design that enhances the human experience. This is modern desert living reimagined.”

Community and amenities

This includes a 23,000-square-foot clubhouse, a 50-meter pool with private cabanas overlooking the Las Vegas Strip, and a sports pavilion offering tennis and pickleball, and a two-acre Family Park, complementing the serene living environment and providing a balanced lifestyle of leisure and activity.
