When Jack Ball left Arizona and moved to Las Vegas in 1995 to open his window fashion business, his flight over the city landed him a preview of the development he and his wife, Patti, would one day call home.
More than 20 years later, the Balls are celebrating their long-awaited move to Lake Las Vegas and settling into William Lyon’s Lago Vista community.
“We always wanted to live in Lake Las Vegas,” said Jack Ball, who has followed the growth of the community over the years. “Being boaters and people who love the water, we had this area on our radar to watch. We thought it would be an amazing place to live one day.”
As the owner of Cover It Window Fashions, Jack Ball has more opportunities than the average home shopper to visit new-home communities. His business of outfitting windows with the latest technology in screens, shutters and custom blinds takes him to new communities on a regular basis, and he said nothing compares to Lago Vista in Lake Las Vegas.
When completed, the gated community of Lago Vista will feature 52 contemporary designed homes situated near Reflection Bay Golf Club and Montelago Village. Residents have their own private beach cove with access to all the amenities of the lake and steps away from the world-class Reflection Bay golf course. Lago Vista offers four distinct contemporary plans from 3,733 square foot, single-story home to 5,032-square-foot, two-story. Lago Vista offers lakeside homesites and golf course views. Prices start in the high $700,000s.
The Balls and their 9-year-old Australian Shepard, Rain, live in a 4,300-square-foot, two-story home with four bedrooms and 4½ baths. The interior of their home is being completed by designer Perry Aubuchon who said the décor will reflect an eclectic contemporary style.
“The furniture is mostly contemporary with some traditional elements included,” Aubuchon said. “For example, we’re thinking of adding a big chandelier over the piano. We’ll have accent walls and maybe some wallpaper. The artwork will be big and bold.”
