This oneâ€™s for you, Clay.
Thereâ€™s no mistaking the Tri-Level design. They were only built South of Desert Inn,Â in Paradise Palmsâ€“ theÂ firstÂ Mid Century Modern Neighborhood of Las Vegas. You canâ€™t miss them. Thereâ€™s about a dozen or so of them all together spread out through the neighborhood. Thereâ€™s still 3 or 4 of them that havenâ€™t had additions or severe modifications or havenâ€™tÂ been stuccoâ€™d over.
Find the one on Pawnee Circle. Itâ€™s the best original.
They have some of the largest of the â€œStone Screenâ€ or â€œSun Screenâ€ privacy walls made out of the decorative concrete block that Iâ€™m so fond of. (that link will take you to the entire series that we spent all of last year on)
Youâ€™ll also note that they came with a zig zag of concrete panels that made up the steps from the street to the front door.
The line of shadow block in the chimney has always been inspirational.
The rubber stamped pricing isnâ€™t very legible but the builder price is starting to really get up there in 1963.
Lot A = $27,950
Lot B = $25,950
Lot C = $31,550
A few (many) of you have been actually reading the amenities list. A few of them that have amused me, or caught my eye:
â€œilsa imported Italian tile or glass tile walls around tubâ€
â€œExtra large Superamic tile counter top and splashâ€
â€œWall to Wall Carpetingâ€Â and a â€œBuilt-In TV outletâ€
â€œfull luminous ceiling with fluorescent tubingâ€
â€œ6 foot built-in sloped mirrored medicine cabinetâ€
â€œDecorative block screen wall across entire lower levelâ€
