Paradise Palms 1963 Palmer & Krisel Golf Course Home Meets the 1990s – Las Vegas, NV

Built in 1963 is this expanded Palmer & Krisel-designed home on the 10th tee box of the Las Vegas National Golf Club in Paradise Palms. With 1,870 square feet, this tri-level cul-de-sac home features three bedrooms, three bathrooms and a two-car garage all on a 10,800 square-foot lot with an asking price of $184,900.

Front entry

Front of home

The home has had significant alterations inside and out that took place in the early to mid-1990s that removed much of the original midcentury modernist aesthetics of the property. Outside, the front yard could use a little attention, with bare ground and deciduous plantings making up most of the landscape. A tall, white iron fence encloses the front yard and separates the home from the street. Chunky lace stucco and window pop-outs were added to the exterior of the home, replacing what would have originally been a smoother sand finish.

Living room 

Family room addition

Inside, the living room sits just off the entry. The signature Krisel modernist floating-wall fireplace has been made more traditional, with a bench hearth added and tile surround replacing original mosaics. A small family room has been added adjacent to the living room, sited on the south side of the home, and kitchen has been expanded into the back yard, incorporating a bay window breakfast nook overlooking the golf course.

Kitchen and nook

The kitchen cabinetry was updated at the same time the house last saw a renovation, and features oak raised-panel cabinetry, older black appliances and composite counters. While the kitchen isn’t current, it is clean and functional and can be utilized as-is or updated in time.

Master bedroom

The three bedrooms are upstairs, with the expanded master at the rear of the home overlooking the golf course. The master bedroom expansion includes a private rear east-facing balcony. The remaining two bedrooms are at the front of the home, and along with the baths, aren’t shown.

Covered patio off of breakfast nook

The backyard contains a small covered patio off the kitchen that was added at the same time as the other renovations to the home were made. The yard has been carpeted in artificial grass, and provides sweeping eastern golf course views.

While the home has been taken away from its modernist roots, it’s got great lines and great bones under those pop-outs, and can be enjoyed as-is or given a modern makeover.
