I may never be able to afford to live in one of these beautiful, but expensive neighborhoods, but it’s nice to dream!

The fact that Las Vegas and Henderson are surrounded by hills and mountains gives community planners some very good areas on which to build large estate homes and mansions. The views of our city and the world famous Las Vegas Strip from a luxury home perched atop one of those high desert regions can cost upwards of $1 million dollars. A mansion in one of those gated, guarded, luxury communities, can cost up to $20 million bucks!

We are starting to see more and more famous celebrities move to the Las Vegas Valley. And now that we have two major league sports teams that call Las Vegas home, we are seeing those Las Vegas Raiders and Vegas Golden Knights players purchase estate homes in some of the expensive neighborhoods you’ll see when you scroll down.

Our city has been home to great entertainers throughout its history. Now that most of the major casinos offer multi-million dollar contracts to performers for residency shows, those entertainers would surely want to live in a luxury home in one of these expensive neighborhoods.

Then, of course, there are the gaming executives who are pulling down those big bonuses. They are certainly rubbing shoulders with the rich and famous professional athletes, celebrities, and entertainers in these exclusive communities.

So what do these expensive neighborhoods, scattered around Las Vegas and Henderson, have in common? They are all guard-gated, they offer custom-built homes, and most are situated on or near beautiful golf courses. Not a bad lifestyle if you can afford it. Heck, I can’t even afford to golf on one of those luxury courses. I’m not complaining. I’m just sayin’…

Feel free to scroll down and check out some of the most beautiful, and expensive neighborhoods in Southern Nevada.
