Here’s a closer look at one of the four homes included in this year’s Parade of Homes:

The Ascension (Home No. 4)
Cascade West Development

According to the Clark County Parade of Homes website, The Ascension built by Cascade West Development is “the embodiment of a personal journey to greatness.”

This home is designed to incorporate all of life’s little moments. The geometry of this plan allows the rooms to fit together in a way that maximizes square footage and the illumination of natural light.

The kitchen is composed to entertain and promote all types of social activity. An integrated outdoor living space, with its large fireplace, formidable cooking area and built-in barbecue, acts as an extension of the Great Room further blurring the line between fabricated and organic settings.

The main floor of the house also includes a centrally located exercise room with scenic forest views and a study off of the Great Room.

Another highlight of this home, according to the website, is the fortified retreat of the master suite and bath. A built-in linear fireplace, custom 11-foot coffered ceilings and five large windows allow the interplay of light and form to surround the homeowner in their place of rest. The master bath includes a modern freestanding tub, which is set against a backdrop of three six-foot-tall windows. The large personal sauna and immense tile shower offer even more options for relaxation and relief from the day.

The downstairs includes three bedrooms, one of which is a princess suite. The downstairs also includes a full bathroom and an oversized game room.

According to the website, this home plan is “designed for people who value family togetherness, natural beauty, social gatherings and all of the little moments in between.”
