These properties also come with gourmet kitchens, indoor-outdoor living spaces, and dedicated work spaces and libraries. Recreation rooms are another key feature. They can come in the form of home theaters, game rooms, dens, and wine-tasting rooms for oenophiles.

3.) Latest home tech and features

Comfort and convenience are found in technology, and many luxury homes are fitted with the latest smart home features and security. One should also look at the fixtures and finishes, particularly the use of materials like exotic hardwoods, antiques, granite, travertine, onyx, and marble.

4.) Resort-style amenities

2.) 99 Hawk Ridge Drive, Las Vegas, NV

The topography and available lot sizes at The Ridges make it challenging to find a “true” estate in the community. Fortunately, Lady Luck is on your side.

Best of all, this could be yours.

This includes Indonesian sandstone for the walls, African afrormosia for the ceiling and wall details, kirei for some of the cabinets in the property, and glasswork by renowned glass artist Leslie Rankin.

The home also features the newest technology. This is most evident in the property’s home theater, which is possibly the best of its kind in the entire country.

99 Hawk Ridge Drive’s spacious guest house is as luxe as the main house. It has two guest suites, a game room, a three-car garage, two kitchens, and doors that seamlessly open for indoor-outdoor living.

The home opens to a glorious outdoor living space. There is a covered patio, a poolside cabana, an outdoor kitchen, and even a putting green for spontaneous tee times.
