Ascaya is a new, ultra-luxury community located in Henderson, Nevada, about 20 minutes southeast of the Las Vegas Strip. Ascaya is still in development, but impressive homes are currently being built into the stunning foothills of the McCullough Mountain Range. Buyers interested in an Ascaya home are often limited to purchasing building sites for custom homes, though accelerated, under construction homes and completed, previously owned homes are sometimes available.
According to the community website, “ownership at Ascaya is available only to the fortunate few,” and there is truth in this statement. Only 313 houses will be constructed in this exclusive, guard-gated community, and prices are steep, but worth it for the most discerning home buyer. The 670-acre community features home elevations of up to 3,000 feet above the Las Vegas Valley floor, as well as 31 miles of rockery walls averaging 12 feet in height. This distinct landscaping complements the desert environment and provides residents with additional privacy.
Much of what sets Ascaya apart from other communities is its stunning architecture and landscape design. The Ascaya community is not just a community of homes, but a work of art, and one of the most dramatic collections of desert contemporary architecture in the world. Homes are built in earthy colors and textures with complementing wood and brushed steel, and designs welcome the desert through indoor/outdoor living spaces and floor-to-ceiling glass views of the mountains, canyons, and cityscape.
Homes in Ascaya are built around the magnificent $25 million clubhouse. The 23,000 square-foot clubhouse features a full-service spa, state-of-the-art workout equipment, tennis, pickleball and basketball courts, zero-edge resort and lap pool, and hot tub. Ascaya offers year-round circuit, spin, and yoga classes, as well as personal trainers. Residents can also socialize or host events at the clubhouse and food and beverage service is available. The clubhouse also features a Children’s Pavilion, offering movie nights, game nights, arts and crafts, and additional activities and community events.
Family Park offers lush green spaces, a splash pad, and play areas for children of all ages. The park will feature custom-built climbing structures and designs that blend with the surroundings. Much of the park’s architecture will also pay homage to the resident bighorn sheep that roam the community ridgelines. The park will connect with the clubhouse, homes, and scenic vistas through a network of private trails that span the community.
In addition to the private community trails, Ascaya offers numerous outdoor recreation activities just outside its gates. About 35 minutes to the east is Lake Mead, which offers numerous hikes from beginner to advanced. Lake Mead also offers an array of watersports, including boating, fishing, swimming, wakeboarding, and waterskiing. Animal enthusiasts can also view a variety of wildlife, including more than 240 species of birds. To the west is Red Rock Canyon, a mecca for hiking, biking, and rock climbing, as well as being home to hundreds of Native American petroglyphs. South of Ascaya is Sloan Canyon, where visitors can explore volcanic landscapes, including lava flows, ash falls, and glassy zones.
If aesthetics and architecture are important to you and you’re interested in building a custom home in a spectacular landscape, Ascaya is a community worth considering. This family-friendly, exclusive community captures the stunning beauty of the rugged desert while still being fairly close to city life and amenities.
Ascaya homesites are still available and each is positioned to maximize privacy while capturing expansive, panoramic views. Every building site is distinct, varying in size, elevation, and topographical features. Buyers are currently looking at homesite prices from $800,000 to about $2.3 million. Home sales prices for a completed or soon-to-be-completed Ascaya home range from about $4.5 to $15 million. HOA fees are around $650 per month.
