Introducing the Newest Evolution of Vu at MacDonald Highlands
High Rise Magazine
Vu, one of the most exciting, innovative and beautiful luxury neighborhoods in Southern Nevada has expanded to introduce the next evolution of its popular brand. VuPointe, featuring 71 all single-story homes in a mix of single-story paired homes and single-story detached homes is staying true to its name with each home offering a spectacular view from the MacDonald Highlands hillside on which the luxury neighborhood sits. From the glittering Las Vegas valley to the north and west, to the dramatic ridgeline of the McCulloch mountains and triple fairway views of DragonRidge golf course to the south and west, VuPointe is positioned to deliver 360-degree views from every vantage point.
Offering distinctively unique, modern and spacious floorplans, all Vu homes feature gorgeous contemporary architecture with floorplans designed for empty nesters, professionals and influencers seeking a highly desirable place to call home. Spanning from 2,800 to 4,000 square feet, VuPointe homes are priced from the upper $900,000s.
Developed by long-time Las Vegas luxury homebuilder, J. Christopher Stuhmer, founder and CEO of Christopher Homes, Vu is the company's signature, contemporary neighborhood that is meeting strong demand for luxury living. Elegant appointments in each Vu home are abundant and include high-end finishes, details and products commonly found in custom homes. Vu's partnership with best-in-class brands like Kohler, Bosch, Thermador, Sub-Zero and Wolf outfit each home with top-shelf appliances and fixtures with special focus on gourmet kitchens that are as gorgeous as they are functional.
The introduction of VuPointe comes on the heels of a quick sell-out of Residences 1 and 2 within Vu's initial phase, underscoring the floorplans' popularity and award-winning design. In 2018, Vu was recognized by the National Association of Home Builders (NAHB) with a prestigious Gold Award for Best Architectural Design. Vu received top honors as the country's Best Community by Best in American Living Awards (BALA). And Vu won three Silver Nugget Awards from the Southern Nevada Homebuilders Association (SNHBA), including the top award for Best Home of the Year for its Residence 3 model.
"As a longtime Las Vegas homebuilder, I am particularly proud of what we've done at Vu," said Stuhmer. "We left no stone unturned and paid attention to every detail to ensure Vu floorplans meet the needs of the luxury buyer. Every home is sited to maximize the area's stunning views, and important architectural and design details create impact. The community's popularity says it all."
Vu is situated behind a 24-hour manned gate, high alongside the McCullough Mountain range that creates a sense of peaceful sanctuary and unrivaled privacy. Yet its location just west of the 215 Beltway offers convenient access to the Strip, McCarran International Airport, and just about anywhere in the valley. Residents of Vu have special access to the DragonRidge Country Club, a 42,000-square-foot clubhouse that offers formal dining, two casual restaurants/grills and lounges and a spacious ballroom to accommodate special events. It also includes a well-appointed fitness center, swimming pool, spa and pro shop. VuPointe is located adjacent to holes 1, 2 and 3 of the acclaimed private, 18-hole championship DragonRidge Country Club course.
All homes in VuPointe are carefully situated on three single-loaded streets, meaning homes are placed only on one side of the street to ensure each home offers spectacular unimpeded views of the surrounding golf course, mountain and canyons. As part of the MacDonald Highlands community, Vu residents enjoy access to three neighborhood parks with designated play areas and picnic facilities, plus tennis, basketball and volleyball courts. Outdoor enthusiasts will appreciate five miles of residential walking trails within the community that connect to additional and more rugged McCullough Mountain trails.
