The luxury market has been busy and getting top dollar for sales. Mark Wahlberg (actor) and Jim Murren(former CEO of MGM) have been associated with three of the top luxury real estate transactions in August and September.
Wahlberg sold his Summit Club bungalow for $16.65 million at the end of September. The sale of an existing Summit Club home on Aug. 31 for $21.25 million the highest-priced sale for this year so far, was purchased by Wahlberg according to public records and confirmed by an area luxury Realtor not involved in the transaction.
The reason for his buying and selling and buying another home in the Summit Club is really simple. Wahlberg said when the family decided to move to Las Vegas they wanted to be here before the school year started. The first home was a temporary place to live, and now they are in a bigger home. Wahlberg’s new home measures 8,419 square feet with six bedrooms, eight baths, and a three-car garage. It sits on 0.65 acres and has a swimming pool. The two-story home was built in 2022. No pictures of the new home have been released, which id customary for homes in this price range.
Wahlberg paid $15.6 million for 2.5 acres on which to build a luxury mansion before he bought the bungalow. That construction has yet to start, and it isn’t known what his plans are for that project.
The Summit Club is known for being private and very secure. The kind of people that live there and is not just because they can afford it but because it’s a certain lifestyle

The property’s “Skyspace” by James Turrell is an art installation that plays on space and light and is one of just a few residential installations from the artist in the world. It is an immersive art and sensory experience, capturing the natural light of the rising and setting sun, and combining that with a sophisticated pattern of lights inside the structure.
