Boxing promoter and former boxing champion Oscar De La Hoya, known as The Golden Boy, has paid $14.6 million in cash for a home under construction in the luxury Henderson hillside community of MacDonald Highlands.
The purchase tops the list of Las Vegas area sales in May on the Multiple Listing Service of the Las Vegas Realtors association. It’s one of two sports celebrity sales in May with former Vegas Golden Knight Alex Tuch selling his Summerlin home after his trade to Buffalo.
De La Hoya’s one-story home sits on nearly 1 acre and measures 10,460 square feet of livable space with five bedrooms, seven baths and an eight-car garage. The home was acquired from luxury builder Blue Heron by Dragon Peak LLC, according to Clark County property records. It lists an address of 1990 S. Bundy Drive, which is tied to Golden Boy Enterprises, the Oscar De La Hoya Foundation and Oscar De La Hoya Real Estate.
The home, part of Blue Heron’s Equinox Collection at MacDonald Highlands, is near a record-setting $25 million home sold by the builder in June 2020 to Anthony Hsieh, the founder and chairman of LoanDepot, a California-based non-bank consumer lender of home mortgages throughout the country.
The De La Hoya custom home with its indoor, outdoor and water features is described as having a floor plan design that only Blue Heron can create, according to the listing from Kristen Routh-Silberman, a partner with Corcoran Global Living. It has 8,051 square feet on the inside and 2,409 square feet on the outside and is a classic design with a modern twist, she said.
“It represents another masterpiece and milestone for Blue Heron and Tyler Jones,” Routh-Silberman said. “It’s sensational and will be a showstopper once it’s complete. Blue Heron is constantly evolving and (this home) here they are taking modern and mixing it with timeless. It’s a new look for them. It’s very refined for modern architecture. It should be a showpiece in Architectural Digest when it’s finished.”
The home features panoramic views of the Strip and mountains. The entrance is considered a statement with water features and a porte-cochere. “It’s every man’s dream to have the garages and an entrance be a statement when you’re coming in,” Routh-Silberman said.
The home has a primary bedroom on its own wing, a guest wing with a digital den and media room. There’s an office, gym and bar, as well. Other features include an outdoor living room, outdoor kitchen and outdoor dining and wine room. The backyard has a lap pool. It has a spa, fire lounges and play areas.
The home will be fully furnished from a Blue Heron furniture collection when completed next spring, Blue Heron CEO and founder Tyler Jones said.
