This elevated modern home was brought back to life by opening the spaces, adding windows and moving/adding doors. Updated lighting was added to fit today's lifestyle and also respect the age and style of the home. Thought was given to each finish to ensure that the original style of the house was retained with a more modern touch.
This modern home with a view features a sleek pool built into a clean-lined wood deck with interesting angles. A wire rail system surrounds the elevated deck, offering safety without obstructing the view.
The exterior of this renovated, ultra-modern home stands proud as a fantastic example of functional, exemplary design. The lower level houses a garage, while the second story contains the home's common spaces. The third floor boasts all the home's bedrooms.

Peeking around the corner of this cedar-shingled home, visitors arrive at an elevated wood deck on a concrete paver and gravel pathway.

This modern Las Vegas home is split into two parts: the main house and the guest house. With the pool in front of it, the main house plays host to the living room and modern master suite, while the guest house contains the guest rooms and the home theater. These two parts of this home are separated by an elevated courtyard that serves as an outdoor living room for both portions of the home and overlooks the property, as well as the Las Vegas Valley and Las Vegas strip.
The guest suite in the HGTV Dream Home 2011 was inspired by boutique hotel room design. Italian linens and contemporary furnishings, including a platform bed crafted from Appalachian hardwoods, elevate the home's sophisticated style.
The rear elevation of this Spanish eclectic home is full of windows so that the interior spaces can take advantage of an abundance of natural light and the home's beautiful view of Morgan Junction below.
