This custom-built home may be set in a place called Spanish Hills, but don’t be fooled by the name. The design is ultra-sleek contemporary.

Distinguished by strong horizontal lines, the stylish house is located within a gated neighborhood in southwestern Las Vegas, Nevada. The entire master-planned golf course community is made up of custom homes, giving it an appealing architectural diversity.

Floating-style steps lead up to the gated entryway. Inside, the gallery-style foyer accesses the staircase and houses a spacious wine cellar enclosed in glass.

Voluminous ceilings and floor-to-ceiling windows enhance the great room, which encompasses a living area with a long horizontal fireplace and a gleaming waterfall bar. Retractable glass walls open the main living space to the outdoors.

Shiny white surfaces are paired with wood grain in the top-of-the-line kitchen. (THE IVAN SHER GROUP)

The open-plan, nearly 9,100-square-foot residence takes in views of the Las Vegas Strip, about seven miles away.

Custom white and wood cabinets set the tone in the kitchen, which has professional-grade appliances, a waterfall island and an informal dining space with seating for six. The kitchen is open to the more formal dining area, the great room and the outdoors.

The home office can be set up for remote working. (THE IVAN SHER GROUP)

Diners can see through to the wine display in the adjoining cellar should they want to make an additional selection.

A clerestory window insures privacy and brings light into the home office, a flex space that could be utilized for a number of pursuits.

The primary suite contains a fireplace, lounging space and walk-in dressing room-style closets. Sliding glass doors open to a balcony that stretches along the back of the house. The spa-like primary bathroom features dual vanities, two showers and a stand-alone soaking tub. The home has a total of six bedrooms and eight bathrooms.

The outdoor areas center on a resort-style pool with a fire feature and an adjacent spa, both of which look out on the city skyline. A cabana sits near the spa.

The primary bathroom contains extensive counter and storage space. (THE IVAN SHER GROUP)

There is garage parking for four vehicles.
