So that property finally closed on 10/15/2013! The final sales price was $6.25M which is $1M less the asking price.

I hope this information has helped!

Ahhh...the 15-acre Contemporary home in the village of Lone Mountain in the community of Desert Mountain. This home was quite popular when it was featured on a few of our self-hosted Desert Mountain Luxury Home Tours.

This home was actually never lived in and it was thought to bring and target buyers of corporations for retreats--given the design and layout of the home.

I'm not quite understanding why there was a listed value of $1.556M? If indeed it is the value of the land, in my day-to-day experience at Desert Mountain, that valuation is quite a bit off. The land was purchased for just under $2.5M and 5-acres of that land has since been improved.

See, there are (3) 5-acre parcels of land there--the 5-acre parcel the home is built on, another 5-acre parcel to the north and another 5-acre parcel to the east--all purchased to preserved the mountain views and privacy.

I, for one, am excited to see what that home actually sells for. I have watched that home from the process of being built to when it was first put on the market.

If you ever have any questions about Desert Mountain, I'm a just an email or a phone call away.

Joel - The house is currently under contract and the amount of $1,556,000 is probably only
the land value.

The reason this listing disappeared from public websites is that's the home is under contract and currently in a Pending status. The listing you now see is just an estimate of value. The value listed is for the raw land and not the improvements.

This home was on the market for 338 days. It went under contract on 8/26/13 and off market on 9/25/13.

Looks like this property went pending on 9/25 and it was built in 2012- meaning an offer was accepted. Not sure why Trulia had it as anything else. I can definately set you up on listing alerts and access so you can see what is happening direct from the MLS which is accurate and shows you what is happening right away. Let me know if I can help,

currently pending sale @ $7,250,000 which is why it doesn't show to the public.
Tax records indicate 2010 construction, probably took 2 years to build resulting in the 2012 date.
The $1,556,000 estimate is probably just for the land.

The price you see is not a listing price, it is an estimated market valuation by Trulia. It is not listed for sale.
