Preview of The New American Home 2020: Comfortable Luxury

While we don't want to give away too much before the house is revealed in Professional Builder's January issue and at IBS, here's a sneak peek at this year's New American Home

The 6,428-square-foot New American Home 2020 sits on a nearly half-acre lot in Ascaya, in Henderson, Nev., overlooking the Las Vegas Valley with a bird’s-eye view of the Strip, providing luxury living at its highest level.

When you’re ready for some breathing room away from the glitter of the Las Vegas Strip and the bustle of the convention center teeming with thousands of IBS attendees, grab a free ticket and head to the south hills of Henderson to tour The 2020 New American Home (TNAH).

Enjoying even better views of the Las Vegas Valley than its 2019 predecessor in the same, super-cool development of Ascaya, TNAH 2020 is set on one of the highest lots in the community. And, true to his approach to designing homes for their locations, Dan Coletti, owner of Sun West Custom Homes, came up with a creative take for 2020. “Last year’s home had a single-sloped roof system that drove the design, but this year we have softly curving walls at the front and a more complicated roofline,” Coletti says. 

Those radiused walls at the entry lure you into the courtyard, where water features flank either side of the front door. Those elements continue inside, where the view from the front door through the great room to the pool reveals a panoramic vista of the Las Vegas skyline.

Coletti doesn’t want to give away too many secrets before the house is revealed in Professional Builder's January issue and at IBS, but he says that the 6,248-square-foot, one-story house has a main master suite and a “mini” master suite at opposite ends of the rear elevation, both of which enjoy a city view. And, he admits, there’s a cool hidden room in the master closet that IBS attendees touring the house may find intriguing.

Other enticing features include an outdoor kitchen connected to the indoor kitchen—part of a generous indoor-outdoor design along the back. While there are wow factors such as the 17.5-foot-long fireplace in the great room and a custom metalwork pattern enhancing the curved walls at the entry, the emphasis on natural elements of fire, water, and desert views keep the house tranquil. —Michele Lerner

Tickets are required and can be obtained (free) at The New American Home/Remodeled American Home booth near IBS registration at the Las Vegas Convention Center.
