Due Diligence: Retired software executive Jerry Foley and his wife, Roxanne, bought the first 2.5 acres of this property for $204,000 in 1996 and spent a year building a home. The house has flagstone floors, hand-carved wooden doors and floor-to-ceiling windows with views of Red Rock State Park. An artist from Hawaii oversaw the design of the grounds, which include sculpture collected from around the world and included in the sale. There's a nondenominational chapel with stained-glass windows. Mr. Foley says it's inspired by ones he and his wife saw on a trip to Bali; they've held weddings and baptisms there for friends and family.
