Since 2004, Blue Heron Homes has been in the spotlight as Southern Nevada’s premier and forward-thinking home builder. Most recently, Blue Heron is setting real estate records and making national headlines with the $25 million sale of their Vegas Modern 001 home in MacDonald Highlands in Henderson, Nevada.
Founder and owner of Blue Heron, Tyler Jones, is a trailblazer in Southern Nevada for his indoor-outdoor and biophilic-designs. In short, Jones is a wunderkind when it comes to incorporating the natural aspects of the Nevada desert landscape into his architectural design.
Today more than ever biophilic-design plays a crucial role in what homeowners seek from their custom home builders. Biophilic-design (meaning love of nature) was popularized by the American biologist Edward Wilson in the 1980s as a result of the increasing rates of urbanization and the disconnection between people and the natural landscape.
“Vegas Modern 001 is the culmination of 17 years of our company,” explained Blue Heron Founder and CEO Tyler Jones. “At Blue Heron, we develop homes that live beyond words. With VM001, we’ve created an extraordinary emotional connection to home that will change your life. This home will transcend time and inspire generations for years to come.”
Used within the building industry to increase occupant connectivity to nature, biophilic-design incorporates aspects of the natural world into the architecture and interior design of living spaces.
The strong desire for biophilic-design is evident in the sale of Blue Heron’s Vegas Modern 001 in the exclusive enclave of MacDonald Highlands. The 15,000-square-foot home includes 3 to 5 bedrooms and sits on 1.26 acres. An extraordinary and state-of-the-art feat in design, the home incorporates the desert’s wide-open sensibility by incorporating natural materials such as stone and wood.
Additional features include a 5,000-square-foot deck space and seamlessly placed pools of water surrounding the home. An outdoor shower and tub bring further connectivity between the homeowner and nature with the inclusion of a spa-worthy outdoor shower and tub.
Ranking as the No. 1 broker at Synergy Sotheby's International Realty and with more than $150 million in sales to date in 2021 alone, Kristen Routh-Silberman is the seller and the buyer’s agent for this top of the line home.
“I think Tyler Jones is at the forefront of innovative and modern architectural design—influencing and changing the way America lives in modern homes, and will go down as one of the great American Architects of this Century,” said Routh-Silberman.
While Blue Heron and Routh-Silberman are making record-breaking sales and news around the country, Blue Heron homes are still available to those looking for a homebuilder to create harmony between physical and human nature, starting at $1.9 million and 2,800 square feet. Tours of Vegas Modern 001 are also available to qualified clients.
