How can I live in a castle

A Victorian Castle in the City of Lights

The Lakes: it’s one of the most affluent enclaves in the city of Las Vegas. It’s two square miles of master-planned residential real estate clustered around glittering Lake Sahara. Here, the streets are lined with multimillion-dollar homes. Nearby, you’ll find Red Rock Canyon National conservation Area and the picturesque Spring Mountains, which tower 9,000 feet over the city.

But even in the presence of such manmade opulence and natural majesty, 2928 Coast Line Court is a head-turner. This stunning, 11,600-square-foot estate is no mere McMansion – it’s a proper castle.

Old-World Craftsmanship

This home was finished in 1991 and constructed at a cost of $8 million – that’s more than 14 million in 2016 dollars. The quality of materials on display here is jaw dropping. Much of the wood and masonry material was imported from abroad, and no expense was spared in creating a residence that is remarkable in every sense of the word.

The level of craftsmanship is also quite impressive. If you’ve spent any time touring luxury homes, then you probably have an eye for the little details that separate the wheat from the chaff, and you’ll be quite pleased with what you find here.

The attention to detail is impeccable. From the rich wood hardwood paneling adorning the hallways to the ornately hand-carved pillars and front door, the intricate crown moldings to the stately fireplace mantels, it’s clear than many hours of journeyman-level labor went into creating this masterpiece.

The Three L’s

Of course, when it comes to luxury homes, the location is almost as important as the quality of the residence itself. And this location is hard to beat.

It’s mere minutes from the Vegas Strip, and it’s situated right on the shoreline of beautiful Lake Sahara. There’s even a private dock where you can store your favorite speedboat, yacht, or cabin cruiser.

Live Like Vegas Royalty

This home has too many amenities to list, but let’s talk about a few of the highlights. As you’d expect, the kitchen is a chef’s dream come true. It has an open, airy floor plan and is equipped with custom cabinetry and top-of-the-line appliances.

Nearby, there’s a stunning formal dining room, complete with rich wood paneling, an antique chandelier, and seating for ten or more.

There are six luxurious bedrooms, and the master bedroom is naturally fit for royalty. There, you’ll find a private balcony, a capacious dressing room, a spa-quality master bath, and a lovely sitting room ensconced in an inviting rotunda and lit by graceful, floor-to-ceiling lancet windows.

No castle would be complete without a dash of intrigue and secrecy, and this one does not disappoint. There’s a secret door behind a bookcase that leads to a hidden basement entertainment room!

You’ve seen luxury homes with lap pools, and you’ve probably seen a few with moats, but what about a lap moat? This castle has one. If you want to ward off intruders, you could swim laps in an alligator costume, but it would probably slow down your lap times.

A Rare Opportunity

Even in a place as glitzy as Las Vegas, Nevada, there’s nothing else like this home. It’s an over-the-top dream home that’s superlative in every sense of the word. And at $4.6 million, it’s a great deal. If you were to build something like this on your own, you wouldn’t even come close with that budget.
