Recruiting buyers' agents to your side is one technique, and a $1 million commission could go a long way toward generating visits from luxury buyers' agents and their elite clientele.
Meet 10 Promontory Drive, a modern masterpiece in The Ridges. Now on the market for $9,995,000 million with that $1 million commission -- a first in the luxury real estate market.
Sellers' agent Robert Sibulkin, of the Ivan Sher Group, knew the listing was something special. It wasn't just the size of the home -- 14,611 square feet of living space spread across three levels. Nor was it the setting, a corner lot tucked in the mountains and overlooking the Bear's Best golf course, with only one neighbor.
What stood out to Sibulkin was the care evident in the design of the property.
With seven ensuite bedrooms and a private master wing, 13 baths, two home offices, a private fitness center and basketball court, and a 15-seat movie theater, 10 Promontory Drive offers everything a luxury homebuyer would want in a property that's incredibly easy to live in.
The luxury estate blends modern and midcentury design principles with the finest quality materials. Textured walls and gleaming Travertine floors make you feel as if you're in an Italian villa, while the Asiatic metal gates set off private spaces within the large home.
When you walk in, you are greeted by a stunning entryway with a statement water feature and a formal sitting room complete with gas fireplace. Front rooms flow into a central courtyard, which becomes a spontaneous gathering place for family and visitors.
That cozy, connected feeling drew the current owners to the property, which was designed by California architect Mark Scheurer in 2005. They enjoyed the centralized courtyard and the blend of interior and exterior entertaining space. They knew the home's amenities -- craft room, game room, and resort pool -- were sure to be enjoyed by their kids.
Yet by no means is all the fun left for children. A 10-car garage accommodates serious car collections, and the climate-controlled wine cellar is ready for your favorite vintage.
A fully-appointed chef's kitchen has professional appliances, granite counters, custom SieMatic cabinets, and an extended bar counter with seating that stretches into the great room. The great room offers a gas fireplace and a wall of glass doors that open onto the pool area. The deluxe amenities make it the perfect place to entertain. “People who appreciate fine art and fine living will love this house,” said Ivan Sher.
While it might get overshadowed by the upscale interior of the home, “the backyard is one of my favorite spots of this house,” Sher notes. The views are unsurpassed, and the resort-style backyard offers many vantage points for taking it all in.
The master wing is bathed in natural light and packed with his and hers amenities. A master library has custom built-in shelves and two seating areas. The his and hers master baths offer a walk-in steam shower, soaking tub, and marble finishes. The step-down bedroom includes a private balcony that feels as if it's in the mountains.
Ceiling-to-floor windows that let in the brilliant Las Vegas light keep the home feeling light and airy, as do the doors that allow pass-through access to the courtyard.
This one of a kind property in the exclusive Summerlin neighborhood offers another level of amenities for the luxury buyer. It's an exciting property to show. Come see for yourself.
