Las Vegas-based design/build firm sets tone for 2020 with prestigious new custom home offering

Blue Heron, an award-winning design-build firm specializing in custom homes and boutique communities, has announced the launch of a new limited collection of homes known as Dragon Rock in Las Vegas. Following a record-setting year in sales for the visionary firm in its existing communities Obsidian, Vantage and The Bluffs, the addition of Dragon Rock introduces a new, design-forward homeownership opportunity in one of the city’s most sought-after enclaves. Dragon Rock will add to the growing portfolio for the brand, which includes custom homes, the Vision Collection, and Communities, boasting more than 250 homes in the Las Vegas area.

“Every home at Blue Heron allows our team to deliver a truly exceptional design, and a client-centric homebuilding experience. From the day our team walks the site, to the handing over of the keys, we are responsible for creating a fun engaging experience that results in a dream home for our client,” noted Tyler Jones, Chief Executive Officer. “As we bring our Vegas Modern™ philosophy to new homeowners, we’re not just building their homes; we’re introducing a new, harmonious and energy-focused way of life to our residents, bringing more balance to the spaces they inhabit every day.”

“Working with the Blue Heron team on the new Dragon Rock community has inspired us to complement the magnificent architecture of each home with a uniquely angled lot to encapsulate and maximize the stunning desert views, ultimately resulting in an expansive development to provide more open space and access to views previously thought unattainable,” remarked Tyler Fegert, managing principal of Shaded Horizon, the land developer. “We’re proud to work alongside the West Coast’s most innovative designers to bring the beauty of the desert to future MacDonald Highland residents.”

Active Selling Communities

  • Dragon Rock – The newest community in the Blue Heron portfolio, Dragon Rock is adjacent to the famous Dragon Ridge and nestled in the heart of the prestigious MacDonald Highlands master planned community. The community offers five of the most popular and often-requested Blue Heron home floor plans. Dragon Rock will feature a model home, set to begin construction in Spring 2020. Fifty lots are now available.
  • Obsidian – Carved into Black Mountain’s foothills, Obsidian is a private, double gated community of 33 homes with panoramic views of the Las Vegas Valley, including the Las Vegas Strip and vast mountain landscape. Each of the three floor plans, ranging from approximately 5,000 to 7,600 square feet, including impeccable desert landscape, energy-efficient technology and luxurious amenities. To date, half of the homes are sold and under contract, with homes starting at $1.8 million.
  • Vantage – On a bluff overlooking the shimmering Lake Las Vegas, Vantage is a luxury gated community of 37 unique homes with boundary-pushing elevations and modern detailing starting in the high $800,000s. Blue Heron’s signature Vegas Modern™ architecture stands out in each of Vantage’s three flexible floor plans, ranging from 2,800 to 4,700 square feet. The dramatic entries and living spaces sprawl in multiple directions as views of the flawless desert landscape and stand-out amenities take center stage. More than half of the homes are currently under contract, with 17 homes currently under construction. The model home will open late spring/early summer 2020.
  • The Bluffs – Perched on a hillside, The Bluffs, a private, gated community overlooking the Las Vegas Valley with stunning views of the mountains and the Las Vegas Strip, offers three new flexible floorplans ranging from approximately 5,000 square feet to more than 6,900 square feet. These 39 elegant Mediterranean Modern homes will reflect the sensibilities of Blue Heron’s award-winning team, known for its careful attention to detail, innovation, efficiency and style. 85 percent of the homes are sold, with only three available homes remaining with pricing starting at $1.5 million.

2020 Vision

With a customer base that spans the Western United States, Blue Heron is primed to continue its success and growth in the decade ahead. The $1.9 billion Raiders Allegiant Stadium and the $1.5 billion expansion and renovation of the Las Vegas Convention Center have already spiked renewed interest to the area and attracted new investments to Nevada. For the housing market, the Las Vegas area has seen tremendous appreciation and will continue to be sustained by newcomers moving from out of state, buyers who are drawn to the area for a more affordable lifestyle, with the means to invest in higher priced homes.

“The moment you walk into a Blue Heron home, you’re struck by the architectural touches and intricate design, from the immersive entryways to the stunning sightlines, it’s evident the level of design is in a class of its own,” noted David Lessnick, Blue Heron resident. “From there, it was an easy decision to relocate from California to Las Vegas, reinforced by the abundance of opportunity and consistent appreciation of homes in the market.”

As demand for impeccably designed, luxury homes in Las Vegas strengthens, Blue Heron will elevate its design platform to new heights this summer with the unveiling of Vegas Modern 001. Introducing a new phase of Vegas Modern™ philosophy for the design-build firm, Vegas Modern 001 will feature groundbreaking architecture and cutting-edge designs yet-to-be-seen.

2020 will also mark the expansion of Blue Heron into new markets beyond Las Vegas: the brand will soon unveil a multimillion-dollar custom home in Southern California’s affluent La Jolla community, along with a second property expected to be unveiled by the end of the year. Well accustomed to the sensibilities of California-based clientele, the strategic move will position Blue Heron to showcase its design-forward aesthetic, blending the Vegas Modern™ philosophy with the natural beauty of the region.
