A new 15,000-square-foot “Vegas modern” mansion outside of Las Vegas hit the market earlier this week for $28 million, making it the most expensive listing in the metro area.
Located in Henderson, Nevada, southeast of the city, the residence could also be the most expensive residence sold in the area if it closes for anywhere near its asking price, according to records from the Multiple Listing Service.
A new record for the most expensive condo in the state was set earlier this week, when a 12,940-square-foot penthouse near the Las Vegas Strip sold for $16.25 million, records show.
Sin City has seen an influx of new buyers since the Covid-19 pandemic started pushing people to smaller, more affordable cities, The Wall Street Journal reported in April. Prices there were up close to 13% in April compared to same time last year, according to Las Vegas Realtors’s most recent data.
This superlative new listing, known as Vegas Modern 001, boasts numerous over-the-top amenities, including a great room with retractable walls, water on three sides and views the Vegas Strip and the Red Rock Mountains, a sky bar and lounge, an office casita, seven fire features, 200 solar panels and a smart-home system that integrates security, sound and energy management.
“It’s one of the most beautiful and cutting-edge properties to ever come to market,” said listing agent Kristen Routh Silberman of Synergy Sotheby’s International Realty. “It’s a showcase for the way people are going to be living in the future.”
The home has space for up to seven bedrooms, including a primary suite with a private patio, and there are nine bathrooms, according to the listing. There’s also a separate suite accessed by a glass bridge, a chef’s kitchen with Wolf and Sub-Zero touchscreen appliances, a full catering kitchen, a glass wine cellar, native plantings and a garage with room for up to 11 cars.

“Vegas modern” is the design philosophy of Blue Heron, the local architecture firm that created the show home, Tyler Jones, the founder and owner of the firm, said during a virtual tour of the property.
“It’s all about capturing the energy of our city, where we were born,” he explained. “It’s meant to connect with people about the current modern lifestyle for Las Vegas.”
