The most favorited house on Mansion Homes of 2015 goes to design + build shop Blue Heron of Henderson Nevada and their “The New American Home” from a 2013 design contest. It is a 8,143 square foot spec house built for the National Home Builder’s Association’s annual event and is located in Blue Heron’s exclusive gated community called Marquis Seven Hills in a suburb of Las Vegas. It is a pretty big deal and Blue Heron has participated in 2 or 3 of them. Certified “Emerald” Status under the National Green Building Standard as well as boasting a HERS Index of 33, the 2013 New American Home has definitely achieved what it was set out to showcase! There were several homes with many favorites, but this modern mansion won.
