Las Vegas is known as the entertainment capital of the world, a place where visitors seeking glitz, glamour and action have the world at their fingertips. But Vegas has so much more than just The Strip. For many, it has become a retreat complete with zero state taxes and a fraction of the traffic found in California.
There is a “mountain oasis” just 40 minutes outside of Vegas – and a lifetime away from all the glitz and glamour – the perfect spot to hideaway. This is where the affluent of Las Vegas have second homes for a quick and easy retreat. If you want to go hiking, mountain biking, or just take in the magnificent mountain views, Mt Charleston is your hidden gem of Las Vegas. There’s even a small ski resort – as in snow, yes! – located just 10 miles away!
This Las Vegas Mountain retreat sits at 7,742 ft. of elevation and is consistently 20 degrees cooler than the desert basin below. This 3 bedroom, 2 bath log home is 3,519 sq. ft. of luxury, plus approximately 1,080 sq. ft. of game and media room. Entertain or relax with a wall of windows which offer breathtaking mountain views. Vaulted ceilings with skylights and a magnificent floor-to-ceiling stone fireplace give an expansive yet warm feel. Upgraded carpet, slate, hardwood floors, wet bar, breakfast bar, and a loft overlooking the great room round out this stunner nestled into the mountain.
The owners, Steve Wilson, of Racing Optics, Inc. (the sole-proprietor and only manufacturer of Laminated-Tearoffs) and Linda Wilson, recent founder of Native Spirit Tequila, used this home for weekend getaways to escape the heat and to decompress after a long week working. Since Linda has started Native Spirit Tequila, the couple has spent the majority of their time in Mexico while working on their new endeavor.
With wonderful weather, outdoor adventures, majestic mountain views and only 40 minutes to the city, Mt Charleston represents a unique “mountain oasis”. Live Here!
