Taking it Back to Tradition

In such a modern era, the terms “traditional” or “classic” when used in real estate often get construed as old or out of date. That is most certainly not always the case. A million-dollar home designed in traditional fashion should be timeless and for lack of a better word, homey. A place that looks and feels welcoming, a place that is comfortable enough to make memories but equally as elegant and worthy of praise

A classic and tasteful design should be able to speak to generations for years to come. Style continuously moves through cycles, but taking it back to tradition never gets old.

The best part of some traditional homes, is their traditional backyards! In fast growing cities like Las Vegas and Henderson, lot size can sometimes be the first bend in a buyer’s criteria.

However, in many of the older neighborhoods, you will find those big traditional backyards with lots of grass, trees, and room to spread out.

The Fountains community near Green Valley in Henderson is one of those neighborhoods. The new listing 2288 Trafalgar is a perfect example of a beautiful traditional home with a sensational backyard. Resting on just over an acre of land on a corner lot, this backyard is gold!

A park-like setting with a basketball court, mature trees and vegetation, fields of grass, a covered outdoor kitchen and a large pool & spa with diving board. The curb appeal is reminiscent of a country home as you pull around the big sloping yard and through the Porte Cochere entry.

Inside the home, smooth, bright white walls and crystal chandelier lighting is reflected off of the flawlessly polished marble floors. An elegantly curved staircase makes a classic statement in the foyer, while French doors along the entire rear wall fill the home with natural radiant light.

Big open spaces invite all who enter and beautifully carved archways connect each room. If there’s ever a time that you are not interested in facing the elements of the outdoors, a remarkable English-inspired conservatory will solve the problem. This enormous sunroom is an original take on indoor/outdoor living. Great for plants or gatherings any time of the year.


2288 Trafalgar offers 6 large en-suite bedrooms, each comparable to a master suite. Plus, an office and separate art studio. Even if the cosmetics of an older home may not be to your liking, the bones and amenities could be well worth the investment.
