Setting you back by $7.295 million Ascaya is well worth every penny that you splurge on it and then some more. Add to it the allure of Vegas strip just a few miles away and you have a winner in every sense of the word!
A home where 10 poorly planned internal rooms stood has now been turned into a spacious cheerful and comfortable cabin and one can find absolutely no trace of those unnecessary partitions. Smart insulation elegant décor and carefully preserved traditional Norwegian charm now shape this remarkable escape.
As kids we all loved treehouses. They were the exciting little escape into a fantasy world where we could play high above the ground and plot our adventures. As adults some of that adventurous spirit still lies within us but now it’s mixed with a dream of a luxurious home and a peaceful getaway.
Beyond the passive solar design principles a lovely garden and green landscape around the residence add to its sustainable style. Despite a modest street façade the house opens up towards the rear and brings the outdoors inside.
A unique vertical design is ideal for a house that’s built around a tree! It brings an element of nature onto every floor of the home where the transparent wall offers a 360° view of the landscape. A house that combines the wooden exterior with gentle pastel shades truly represents the newer concepts of modern housing design and captures a fresh and bright look!
One of the major features that defined the house was the need for complete accessibility making every part of the home across its two levels wheelchair-friendly. Clear paths and easy access points add to this feature with beautiful lighting and top-notch insulation completing a classy contemporary residence set in an idyllic backdrop.
