Former Residence Of Us Senator Harry Reid Goes On The Market
Five-acre homesite in Searchlight, Nevada perfect for homebuyer looking to escape the city life
By: Colwell Banker Premier Realty
Searchlight was a popular mining town in the early 20th century and experienced a small resurgence during the construction of the Hoover Dam in the 1930s. Today it is home to approximately 300 households and is the birthplace of former US Senator Harry Reid. The former Senate Majority Leader built this house in 2001 and sold it in 2014.
"This property is entirely unique in that it's a custom luxury residence in the middle of the desert," said Skip Schifrin of Coldwell Banker Premier Realty with whom the property is exclusively listed. "It is secluded but not so far off the beaten path that you cannot enjoy the amenities of the city whenever you want."
The single-story home features 2.937 square feet with two large bedrooms, a spacious bonus room, and dining room. The living area invites natural light through an entire wall of picture windows facing West for perfect sunset experiences.
The open concept design integrates a 19' vaulted ceiling with custom wood beams, wood-burning fireplace with floor-to-ceiling natural river rock surround design, and a gourmet kitchen with large island, undermount sink, granite countertops, dark cabinetry with glass-front doors, double wall ovens, and an electric range.
"When you walk outside to the covered patio, you see miles of desert in every direction," said Schifrin. "You can practice your aim at the pistol/archery range during the day and sit by the firepit looking at the stars in the evenings."
The town of Searchlight is located within Clark County and consists of two gas stations, two casinos, and hundreds of trails.
"This is classic small-town USA with a rich Nevada history," said Bob Hamrick, chairman and CEO of Coldwell Banker Premier Realty. "If you're looking for a laid-back town with plenty of desert recreation, this is the place."
This residence located at 900 State Hwy 164 is listed for $549,900. If you'd like more information on this property or to schedule a private showing, please contact Skip Schifrin at 702.378.0214 or visit his website at https://skips.cbvegas.com/
