Water World: Dazzling views, exotic aquatic concept make multimillion dollar home one of a kind

Stan Gribble’s bachelor pad in Ascaya resembles more of a resort than a home. The 79-year-old real estate developer and investor commissioned a one-story home designed and built by Sun West
Custom Homes.

The Henderson hillside property sits on 2 acres, and boasts a pool that nearly surrounds the home and measures 5,900 feet.

“We wanted to give the impression that this is a resort-style home that would really feel comfortable and feel timeless,” said Sun West owner Dan Coletti.

“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.”

The intention was that people approaching through the front door would be able to see through the center of the house into the great room, which has a 21-foot ceiling, and beyond, to the pool and views of the Strip,
Coletti said.

“Stan and I talked about (how) the water need(ed) 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.”

In addition to the oversized swimming pool, there’s a spa, and cold plunge pool along with a putting green and outdoor kitchen, all overlooking the Strip.

“Vegas doesn’t have an ocean, but you have the Strip views and, at night, the views are spectacular,” Gribble said. “It’s a home for entertaining.”

The one-story residence with a six-car garage has six bedrooms and a full casita. There is also a theater room, game room and study.

At the beginning of the design process, Gribble made it clear that he wanted to capitalize on exceptional city views.

“From the study, you can look over almost 90 feet of water before the edge and the city views beyond,” Coletti said. “What makes the home stand out from other homes is how it’s situated on the property. All of the rooms — except for two guest rooms — have a stellar city view.”

The property at 8 Rockmount Court is listed for $15.5 million with Coletti at Sun West Luxury Realty.
