The mere fact that it is part of the master-planned Summerlin community in Las Vegas, Nevada gives this gorgeous house a big advantage over many other luxury homes in the area. Its name is J2 Residence and its cool features are numerous. First of all, the project was designed with deep respect to the desert environment in which it is located, thus complying with the local design requirements: “design individuality, horizontally and sensitivity to the desert hillside environment”.
Every single detail was carefully planned to obtain a flawless result. The building’s environmental orientation, the materials, the landscaping and everything in betweenis the result of careful pondering and dedication to perfection. Renewable energy sources play an important role in the project: Kyocera Multicrystal Photovoltaic Modules provides a significant percentage of the home’s power needs, while the earth construction helps keep temperatures at an optimum level regardless of the extreme temperature fluctuations between day and night.
Another important characteristic of the J2 Residence is the fact that it encourages a continuous communication between the outdoors and the indoors. All public areas (library, dining room, great room, casita) boast expansive views into the distance, while also being very open towards the intimate courtyard with pool. Even the basement area with game room and bar benefits from natural light, becauseit is connected to the beautiful courtyard. Overall, this is a very easy to love property.
