Nationals slugger Bryce Harper drops $2.7 million on a home near Las Vegas
The National League’s reigning MVP has found a new place to hang his hat.
Bryce Harper, star outfielder for the Washington Nationals, has bought a home in a gated Henderson, Nev., community for $2.7 million.
Completed last year, the two-story house offers a contemporary spin on the Prairie School style. The symmetrical front of the house is reached by a concrete steps leading up to a frosted-glass front door. Bands of casement windows are positioned on both sides of the home, while celestories enhance a pop-up above the entry.
Inside, the home opens to a vaulted foyer with a floating wood-and-steel staircase and an ornamental garden feature. A cascading water wall underscores the raised ceilings while providing visual interest.
Other features of note include a glass-enclosed wine wall with storage for 360 bottles and a chef’s kitchen complete with quartzite countertops, modern fixtures and an island/bar. A wet bar with a glass pop-up counter sits across from the kitchen.
Upstairs, there’s a game room with an additional kitchenette and an oversized balcony overlooking the roughly half-acre grounds. The master suite sports a fireplace, a spa-like bath and a walk-in closet for a total of five bedrooms and five bathrooms in 7,400 square feet of living space.
Pocketing glass doors off the family room open to a swimming pool with a raised spa. Views extend as far as the Vegas Strip.
The property was most recently listed for sale at $2.95 million, records show.
Florence Shapiro of Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices Nevada Properties was the listing agent. Harvey Tadmor of Desert Sky Realty represented the buyer.
Harper, four times an all-star, has ties to the area, having attended Las Vegas High School and, for a year, the College of Southern Nevada.
The 23-year-old tied for the National League in home runs last season with 42 homers, earning Silver Slugger and Most Valuable Player honors in the process. The touted first overall draft pick has 20 home runs in 103 games for the Nationals this year.
