Ascaya is a renowned 24-hour guard-gated community poised atop a monument of spiraling stone in Henderson, Nevada. This vibrant city—ideally situated south of Las Vegas and west of Lake Mead and the Hoover Dam—has been named “One of the Best Cities to Live in America” by Bloomberg’s Businessweek. Built at an elevation of over 3,000 feet, Ascaya features 313 custom homesites on 670 acres of land. Many homesites showcase sweeping views of the iconic Las Vegas Strip, while others are nestled amidst the picturesque canyons and hills of the McCollough Mountain Range. These custom home lots can be combined for those who want more space, and there is no timeline requirement for submitting a custom home design after purchasing a lot.

Ascaya was developed by Hong Kong billionaire Henry Cheng. The development of Ascaya was a massive undertaking. The site was originally a mountain of rock; over 15 million cubic yards of material had to be excavated to create the homesites, which marked one of the largest excavations in the country. The project also included the construction of over 32 miles of 16-foot high rock retaining walls made from the excavated boulders.

Phenomenal architecture is the touchstone of Ascaya’s philosophy; the influence of the land itself—desert sun, earth, and stone—is reflected in every angle and dramatic line. Spacious windows with large overhangs allow desert beauty to naturally enter each home’s interior while creating functional shaded spaces outside. To set the architectural tone for the community, the developers invested in a collection of “inspiration homes” designed by five of the world’s top architects. The result? Living in Ascaya is like living in an art gallery.

At the heart of Ascaya lies the magnificent Ascaya Clubhouse, a remarkable gathering place valued at $25,000,000 and exclusively reserved for homeowners and their guests. Spanning an impressive 23,000 square feet, the Clubhouse was meticulously crafted by the esteemed architectural firm, Swaback Partners—with a masterfully curated interior by the renowned TAL Studio, known for their exceptional designs at Encore Resort & Tower Suites, Four Seasons Lanai, and the Chicago Mandarin Hotel. Exemplifying the awe-inspiring desert contemporary style, the structure seamlessly integrates indoor and outdoor areas, creating a captivating experience.

Ascaya puts you within minutes of Henderson’s highly-rated public and private schools, high-end resorts, savory restaurants, and popular shopping destinations. Beyond the safety and seclusion of the gates, residents of Ascaya enjoy close proximity to two golf courses—Desert Willow Golf Course and DragonRidge Country Club. The Las Vegas Beltway (I-215) is conveniently located nearby and offers easy access to all of the premier entertainment, fine and casual dining, and exclusive retail shopping that the Las Vegas Valley has to offer.
