Merlin Custom Home Builders is excited to announce that we are finalists in two categories for the 2020 Silver Nugget Awards, the annual awards honoring excellence in the Southern Nevada Home Builders Industry. Merlin is nominated for Best Design and Architecture for a Custom Home and Best Outdoor Living Space for a Custom Home for “Terra,” a custom home at The Summit in Las Vegas. The virtual awards ceremony will be held on Thursday, October 22, 2020.

“We are honored to be nominated for two awards at this year’s Silver Nugget Awards,” stated Steve Jones, Founder and CEO of Merlin. “To have one of our homes recognized among the best in the business is a testament to the skilled expertise of the entire Merlin team.”

A desert oasis, Terra incorporates visual and physical connections to the desert which surrounds it. The contemporary, two-story desert home features rammed earth walls, red rock tones and textures and open living spaces as well as an extended roof that forms a central entry courtyard featuring the natural elements of water, wood and fire, into which all areas of the home have extended views. Earth tones and natural materials are expertly paired throughout the 6,025 square foot home to create an elegant, yet comfortable ambience in harmony with the natural elements in the courtyard and surrounding landscape. The roof also enables the home to provide large, protected expanses of glass, void of direct sun, to capture panoramic views of the mesa, foothills, golf course, and the Las Vegas Strip.

The annual Silver Nugget Awards is a joint program of the Southern Nevada Home Builders Association and the Las Vegas Review-Journal. Honoring the best in design and professionalism in local home building, the awards will honor more than 40 winners from over 200 nominees, including home builders, interior designers, marketing directors and sales directors.

Merlin is a past Silver Nugget Award winner, having brought home the 2019 award for Best Design and Architecture for their Water’s Edge model custom home located in the Estates at Reflection Bay at Lake Las Vegas.
