‘Every room is an experience’: $15M Summerlin home tops July sales

A Summit Club home in Summerlin known as Sky Summit has sold for $15 million and is the top sale in July so far. The two-story home on Vegas Hills Court measures 8,936 square feet with seven bedrooms, six full baths, two partial baths and a five-car garage. Built in 2020, it’s perched on 0.8 acres and is billed as a home where every room is an experience, according to listing agent Austin Sherwood with Luxury Estates International.

Sherwood called it a French-contemporary inspired home as far as the design that he called timeless. He called it a fantastic lot with views of the mountains and golf course. The home has soaring ceilings and is “light, bright and airy.”

“This modern, open concept design truly embodies and captures the best of desert living,” Sherwood said in his listing. “With its floor-to-ceiling windows, pocket doors, private Zen courtyard, extensive shaded patios, pool deck and balcony, it truly is a resort unto itself. With smooth white stucco exterior and stone columns, the entrance ushers you into a grand foyer. A great room holds a seating area ringed by beautiful stone, and first and second-story windows allow gorgeous mountain views.”

Sherwood said the dining area and kitchen have a granite island with bar seating. The first-level primary suite has mountain views, two custom walk-in closets, and an indoor/outdoor master bath ringed by landscaping. A separate set of stairs leads to a second level that includes an additional living area with a kitchen and dining area, a private balcony and two bedrooms, he said.

Market update

Forrest Barbee, corporate broker with Berkshire Hathaway Home Services reported 103 sales of $1 million and higher as of Thursday with a handful of days to report other closings. There were 106 in July 2022 when the market started to slow with higher interest rates and concerns about the economy. There were 167 in July 2021 and 69 in 2020 and 49 in July 2019.

“I haven’t felt this kind of momentum since the pandemic,” Sherwood said. “In the market we are in right now, pre-pandemic pricing and activity wasn’t this strong. We are talking homes between $15 million to $20 million selling every other week. There was a big sale at Ascaya and a few more in escrow that are very large and about to transpire.”

Doman said the luxury market is picking up and the bar continues to be set higher as sales prices increase.

“I’m excited it’s heating up again,” Doman said. “It’s definitely a seller’s market because of the inventory shortage.”
