Think Nevada. You thought Vegas, right? Garish, bright, full of scantily clad dancing girls draped in feathers, light shows on domed ceilings in outdoor thoroughfares, men who tame tigers and acrobats who fly as if winged. But travel outside the city, just 30 miles or so, and the magic takes on a whole new form. Located in Henderson, this breathtaking 6524 sq. ft. European villa wannabe boasts incredible views of Lake Mead National Park and Lake Las Vegas, complete with its own bell tower, lush landscaping, multiple fireplaces, and an inviting saltwater pool with adjoining spa. But step inside and prepare to be transported. From the dark hardwoods to the “reclaimed pavers imported from the south of France,” the arched-and-tiled ceilings of the exquisite kitchen, the murals on the ceilings and wall that are way too cool for words, the gothic undertones from light fixtures to the collection of ornate crosses, the princely four-poster bed best suited for royalty … this is a house like no other, one that can be yours for the equally princely sum of $6.9 million USD.
