No. 1

The $34 million listing is owned by billionaire Anthony Hsieh, the founder and chairman of LoanDepot, a California-based non-bank consumer lender of home mortgages. In 2021, he bought the newly constructed Henderson hillside home built by Blue Heron.

The three-level home measures 15,000 square feet with seven rooms that can serve as bedrooms, nine baths and a seven-car garage. It sits on 1.26 acres. The backyard has two infinity saltwater pools and a spa, outdoor kitchen and bar and seven fire features. There’s a sky lounge and deck with 360-degree views. There’s a covered outdoor living room between the two pools with breezeways and outdoor access from every room.

The home has a great room surrounded by water, glass wine cellar, game room, library loft, office, sky suite, primary bedroom with spa bath and private outdoor area. The kitchen has a separate catering kitchen.

“(The home known as Vegas Modern 001) is a testament to the design philosophy and architectural significance we implement into each of our homes,” said Tyler Jones, CEO and founder of Blue Heron. “We are proud that since the historical sale in 2021, VM001 has gained local and national recognition for its biophilic design and carefully crafted environment, which creates an unparalleled experience in connection to the surrounding Vegas landscape.”

Jones said the home at 685 Dragon Peak Drive has played a significant role in redefining luxury residential real estate, “intentionally connecting with the intrigue and glamour of Las Vegas. By weaving the city’s vibrant culture with the Mojave Desert’s natural aesthetic through warm, stimulating spaces and a stunning visual connection to the Las Vegas skyline and Red Rock Mountains, the home represents a rare, immersive architectural experience.”

The home is listed by Kristen Routh-Silberman, a Realtor with Douglas Elliman of Las Vegas who sold the property in 2021.

Since selling it in 2021, Routh-Silberman said Hsieh had Blue Heron enhance the home with updates, increasing the overall square footage of interior living space, with the construction of extended office space, lounge areas and additional butler kitchen.

Jones said the home is a nod to local midcentury modern architectural forms that capture the essence of the modern American West. It features a butterfly roof and contrasting horizontal lines.

“The living spaces in the home include a great room surrounded by water, a master kitchen that thoughtfully integrates beauty, function and views, a master suite with an intimate and private outdoor environment, and a sky suite providing a 360-degree view of the entire Las Vegas Valley,” Jones said.
