This luxurious hillside development of Ascaya in Henderson resembles more of a resort than a home. The “house of wow and water” served as Stan Gribble’s bachelor pad. Gribble, a semi-retired real estate developer and investor, put the one-story home located at 8 Rockmount Court on the market for $15.5 million.
The beautiful home was designed and built by Sun West Custom Homes. The estates spans 12,100 feet on more than two acres of land. The home consists of five bedrooms, seven bathrooms, a full casita and a six-car garage.
Adding to the fun is a theater room, game room and study. But, that’s not the best part. What makes the home significantly stand out more than the others located in the valley is a pool that measures 5,900 square-feet. According to the Las Vegas Review Journal, the pool can be seen as soon as guests walk through the front door.
Sun West owner Dan Coletti said that the concept behind it is for visitors to see through the windows to the center of the house and into the great room with its 21-foot ceiling to the pool and views of the Strip and beyond.
“Stan and I talked about the water needed to play a big part of the home because Stan loves water in the desert,” Coletti said. “It’s a lot of surface area — being almost 6,000 square feet — but the pool is only 18 inches deep. It’s not a lot of volume, even though it looks like there’s water everywhere.”
Gribble mentions that is exactly what he desired from Coletti, since water is the “wow fact in the desert.” The swimming lane is more than 90 feet long, Gribble says, which helps people who like to swim for fitness.
The home also contains an oversized, outdoor basketball court and a spa cold plunge pool that Gribble claims assists in recovery and stimulates nerve endings. The water is kept at 50 to 55 degrees. Guests can access the rear bar from the water, watch TV, play on a putting green just outside the pool and even cook thanks to an outdoor kitchen.
The views witnessed are said to be one of the best aspects of the home. “Vegas doesn’t have an ocean, but you have the Strip views and at night the views are spectacular,” Gribble said. Every room, aside from the two guest rooms, has a stellar city view, according to Coletti. “It’s such a premier piece of property in how we were able to capture views,” Gribble said.
Coletti also mentioned, “The home is 12,000 square feet, but it has a warm feel to it. The design style is desert contemporary, but you can give it the name ‘everlasting.’ Between the stone, glass and wood features, this home will not date itself in the next five to 10 years. It will still look current in the future.”
