House Tour: The New American Home 2019
This year at the International Builders' Show, we had the pleasure to partner with The National Association of Home Builders to help create The New American Home 2019. The dazzling, 8,226 square-foot showhome is located in Henderson, Nevada and boasts a jaw-dropping view of Las Vegas. The New American Home boasts cutting-edge smart home technology at every turn. Additionally, the home is 53% more energy efficient than the average new code-built home, which will create over $3,4000 in annual energy savings.
Sun West Custom Homes designed and constructed the luxury home. The team is known for its contemporary designs, minimal decor and integration of glass and flat rooflines into each project.“Design is always maturing,” Dan says, “and with the mixture of this home’s design, the products, the lot and its overall aura, I’m hoping that when people see the finished product, they truly enjoy it and say ‘Wow, I can’t believe they could do that.’”
When you enter the home, you are greeted by an open-layout kitchen and lounge area. A triangular Noble Grey table sits near the center of the room and helps to break up the kitchen from the sitting room.
The kitchen boasts tons of Montblanc counter space made and a subdued, modern color palette.
An oversized waterfall island with an expansive slab of Montblanc (equipped with plenty of built-in shelving) sits in the center of the space.
If you follow the elongated kitchen counter far enough, you will make your way outdoors. The open shelving mirrored on either side of the glass pane creates a continuous flow between the outdoor and indoor areas.
Floor-to-ceiling panes of glass are used as walls throughout the house in order to highlight the stunning outdoor views. “Transitions between living areas will be so seamless, it’ll be hard to tell where the home’s interior ends and the outside begins,” continues Coletti.
Across from the outdoor grill is a Raven bar area, which is the perfect location for sipping cocktails and enjoying the view-or the outdoor, mounted high-definition television.
The real show-stopper in this area, however, is the adjacent, indoor Jet Black wet bar. The cantilevered, right-angle surface enclosing the space gives the illusion of being suspended by four cables from the ceiling.
A jaw-dropping fireplace sits in the common area next to the wet bar. Guests can sit on the Montblanc hearth while they take in the views.
Outdoor fire pits can be found outside next to the infinity pool, which features color-changing lights. It’s hard not to admire the panoramic view of the Las Vegas Strip at this serene oasis.
A dining room is connected to the open concept kitchen. The large Noble Grey table sits center-stage in this minimalist, modern masterpiece.
Wine collectors, rejoice! The back wall is covered in mirrors to highlight each bottle on display.
Next to the living room is what Sun West has coined the “Wall of Doors.” Dan Coletti was inspired to create a distinctive look for this hallway between the suite and study. The door to the owner’s suite is concealed to flush the wall.
A vertical application of Georgian Bluffs was used for a floor-to-ceiling look to create a bold statement in the study. This unique feature is yet another example of Sun West’s ability to convey architecture as art.
Down the hallway is the master ensuite, which features a floating bed and a right-angle fireplace. The bed adds a distinctive architectural flair to the room, not to mention ensures that vacuuming is a breeze!
Two DaVinci Custom Fireplace units were seamlessly connected to give the illusion of a single unit, augmented by a deep wraparound hearth made of Vanilla Noir. The light of the fire dances on the quartz and highlights its white veining.
Backlit Sfumato glows in the walk-in closet and is visible from the transparent glass shower, which is complete with two shower heads. Floor-to-ceiling open cabinetry and a Vanilla Noir-topped table ensure your purses and shoes will be front and center!
Vanilla Noir countertops enhance the sophisticated, contemporary and luxurious appearance.
The 2019 New American Home is truly an architectural feat. Dan and his team at SunWest Custom Homes, as well as everyone involved in this project, have truly outdone themselves and we could not be happier to be involved!
