Desert Distinction

Located just 20 miles from Las Vegas on the outskirts of a historical mining town, this house is situated on the banks of a desert arroyo against the backdrop of millions of acres of public-access wilderness and trails.

Weathered World

The design of the home works with the bank of the arroyo, giving the illusion that it seems to have been worn away over time, exposing the concrete foundation, like in this outdoor area with captive rock walls and outdoor dining.

Twilight Trek

Leaving home and crossing the arroyo gives access to trails like the home’s namesake Rubber Ducky Trail, featuring foliage adorned with rubber ducks to alert hikers and bikers to sudden changes in direction.
