Morning View

A Sweetheart Of A Home In Morning View Heights

There’s a custom cluster just east of Maryland Parkway off of Oakey. I talk about it a lot, as it’s one of my absolute favorite areas of Vintage Vegas. There’s actually several neighborhoods clustered together that include Marycrest, Crestview, Morning View Heights, Becke Circle, Maria Elena Circle, and Concordia Circle.

1700 Chapman in the historic Crestview Neighborhood of Las VegasThere’s only 7 homes for sale in the entire pocket. Our listing on 15th street is under contract, and so is the huge mid mod on Maria Elena. But among the 7 that are for sale, my listing on the corner of Chapman and Oakey certainly stands out and deserves more attention.

One of you ought to grab this up while you can. It’s actually a modestly sized home for the area at 1550sf. It’s very original  with a wood beamed ceilings, an excellent 2 sided brick fireplace in the living room as well as original 1956 bathrooms and kitchen.

It’s built over a crawlspace, so there might be hardwood floors under the carpet. The hardwood floors in the bedrooms seem to be real.

 

 

 

IMG_5955There’s very little for sale that falls into the normal category of “nice house at a great price”. Most of the would be sellers who have owned and loved and taken care of their homes for years are waiting things out. This is true in every part of Vintage Vegas.

When we find one that’s for sale and priced to sell, then it deserves to be considered.

It’s been fun showing and selling the beat up crappy foreclosures, but it’s much more fun to find an all original, well loved home.

Historic Pocket Neighborhoods In Downtown Las Vegas – Custom Homes From the 1950′s and 1960′s

There’s a big pocket of custom homes on the east side of Maryland Parkway. We’ve talked before about Marycrest, which is 14th and 15th streets as well as Bonita and 3 cul-de-sacs off of 14th, but if you continue east on Oakey, you’ll find 4 other neighborhoods that are equally impressive.

Crestview Estates is the name of the custom homes on Chapman Drive and 16th Street. Continuing another 2 blocks to the east are the Morning View Heights Custom homes which are on Cochran Avenue and 17th Streets.

Leaded Glass Bay Window On Concordia Circle In Historic Vintage Las VegasThere’s also 2 very really fun cul-de-sacs called Concordia Place, and Becke Circle. If you’ve never turned north off of Oakey into these, you’re missing some of the most interesting homes in all of Vintage Vegas. Our absolute favorite is the Herbst Mansion, which is the epitome of 2 story modernism. Concordia Circle boast the best collection of leaded glass windows to be found in one place.

 

 

 

One of the most stately and impressive homes is the SW corner of Chapman and Oakey. There you’ll find our newest listing, which I hinted at in the last few weeks. I’m on my way to take the pictures right now.  We’ll have the flyers, MLS listing, brochures and most of the rest of the internet marketing ready by the end of the day today. Watch for them tomorrow.
