There was a viewing event yesterday of the stunning Ascaya community in the hills above affluent Hendersonís southern Green Valley area. The three homes we saw ranged in prices between $7.55M ó $9.5M. Big liveablity misses in all the houses. Iím surprised ó with those price tags ó about some of the fails.

*a 2-story house with Master upstairs for great views (although views were great from first level) and no way to install an elevator for aging in place
*a 2 story house with ever-changing levels ó one & 2 step changes on the first floor which prevents anyone disabled from manuevering about the home ó and lots of opportunities to trip and fall
*a magnificent single story house ($9.5M) with a detached gameroom that was a simple room with a pool table and had no bathroom or bar/kitchenette so could never double as a casita. Also same house didnít have a hot tub although it had wonderful privacy and a $10M view!!

Anyone else attend the viewing event and have comments?

In the last year 98 homes over $2,000,000. 7 over $7,000,000.

Made for celebrities, musicians and ultrariche who want a mansion while they are in Las Vegas on a trip. Otherwise who's really buying this nonsense. Even then they'd be better off buying a high rise condo that's on the strip. Non-functional garbage.

also dont agree with the carpets....no high end home should have carpet in the hallways and that room (not sure what that room is...bedroom?). to me carpets seems kind of cheap, like they didnt want ot spend more for high quality hardwood floors or tile

plus its hot in vegas, why would you need carpet. i would expect in cold climates sure.

Actually I periodically trip and fall and vastly prefer landing on carpet to the limestone in the main living area of our home. And in the homes of this class carpet versus something else is pretty much petty cash.

I try to use a walker on the limestone. But try to walk free on the carpet.

It is a failed project. They have had very little interest.

My former boss is 2/3 of the way through construction of her custom home in Ascaya - about 10K square feet, IIRC.

From my perspective, the major downside to Ascaya is the build-out schedule. It easily could be another 20 years of construction in that development -- another 20 years of traffic caused by the trades, another 20 years of nails-in-tyres as you drive through, another 20 years of essentially no privacy, another 20 years of empty fast food containers that didn't quite make it into the dumpster.

Good point. We owned a house in a gated community in Texas (neighbor was Dr. Phil McGraw & wife Robin) that had many mansion-type homes. Our house was built in 1989 and when we moved out in 2014 a few lots were still being built on. When I moved there in 2004, about 20% was still under development. Its a fact of life that construction workers and contractors have pretty free and constant access ó gated or not ó in a community under development.
