Vegas Modern 001 – Exterior

This historic sale validates our philosophies and quantifies the premium for the inspired experiences that only Blue Heron can deliver; we couldn’t be more excited for the new owner.

Acclaimed design-led development firm Blue Heron announced today the record-breaking sale of Vegas Modern 001 (VM001), a pioneering 15,000-square-foot home in the exclusive MacDonald Highlands community overlooking Las Vegas. The innovative design-build sold for $25 million, making it the highest-priced residential sale in Southern Nevada, shattering the previous record of $17.55 million.

Every aspect of the three-level home at 685 Dragon Peak Drive was designed, built, and furnished by Blue Heron’s in-house team of architects, interior designers, and builders. Created to showcase Blue Heron’s influential Vegas Modern™ design philosophy, VM001 will continue as Blue Heron’s experience center, in a unique arrangement with the buyer.

“At Blue Heron, we believe that extraordinary design will change your life, and this belief inspires everything we create. VM001 demonstrates how our approach elevates the human experience at home, and it is very gratifying to see how swiftly the market has responded to this unique offering,” said Tyler Jones, CEO and Founder of Blue Heron. “This historic sale validates our philosophies and quantifies the premium for the inspired experiences that only Blue Heron can deliver; we couldn’t be more excited for the new owner.”

Both listed and sold by Kristen Routh-Silberman at Synergy Sotheby’s International Realty, Las Vegas, VM001 offers its new owner unobstructed Las Vegas Strip views throughout the home and its commanding 1.26-acre lot. This sale sets a new benchmark for Las Vegas luxury real estate.

“The combination of Blue Heron and Synergy Sotheby’s International Realty created the perfect blend of design, luxury, innovation, and global marketing prowess,” said Routh-Silberman. “Having a global network of highly qualified luxury buyers is a requirement when bringing exceptional properties to market. My network, powered by decades of experience and results and backed by the Sotheby’s International Realty brand, enabled me to secure a buyer on this record-breaking sale quickly.”

VM001 received international press from Robb Report, James Edition, Yahoo, and Mansion Global upon hitting the market. Described by the media as “the most state-of-the-art home in the country,” VM001 dramatically pushes boundaries when it comes to in-home technology.

Through a key partnership with Savant, VM001 boasts industry-leading features that make the home truly special. The new owner will enjoy full automation for every pillar of the connected home – climate, lighting, entertainment, security, and energy. In addition, a groundbreaking energy-management system from Racepoint Energy optimizes a 118-kilowatt photovoltaic solar array and battery backup system, ensuring the home can operate even if disconnected from the grid.
