Paradise Palms Palmer & Krisel Pool Home For Sale – Las Vegas, NV

Built in 1963 by Paradise Homes is this Palmer & Krisel-designed home in Paradise Palms in Las Vegas, Navada. With 1,215 square feet, this midcentury modernist home includes three bedrooms and two bathrooms and a large in-ground pool all on a 9,100 square-foot lot with an asking price of $169,999.

Entry and carport 


Last sold in December for $110,000, this home has been freshly flipped and cleaned. The exterior of the home still maintains its original lines and form, with an open side-entry two-car carport and soaring gable elevation with clerestory windows. Bars at some point were added over the windows and entry door, and they remained as part of this flip. The landscape is mature, with older plantings and a mature olive tree out front, and the exterior of the home has recently been painted.

Inside, the living, dining and family rooms all face the rear of the home, while the bedrooms and baths are all at the front. Those with a keen eye will recognize this floor plan as nearly identical to yesterday’s featured Krisel home in La Mirada, CA. The original vaulted ceilings with their original texture are still in place, and new large 24” tile has been added throughout the home.

The living room overlooks the swimming pool area and back patio through floor-to-ceiling glass windows, obscured slightly by the added security bars. The living is anchored by Krisel’s signature fireplace, which has had stacked blocks, a mantle, and raised hearth added to it at some point during the later 1960s or early 1970s.

Family/dining room 

The galley kitchen and family/dining room sit adjacent to the living room and have received the same flooring and updates as the living room. The kitchen features two differing style of cabinets, older lower cabinetry which has been painted a dark brown floor, and a newer shaker cabinet box has been added over the slid-in-range in lieu of a traditional vent hood. Newer granite counter tops and linear mosaic backsplashes have been added, creating an interesting juxtaposition of very new, trendy materials mixed with old. The kitchen has also been sealed off to the living room, which cuts off the flow of the room but creates additional wall space in the living area.

Master bedroom

Master bathroom 

The master bedroom sits of the entry hall, and overlooks the side yard. The original master bedroom closet and dressing area has been removed to create a larger entry hall, and the master bedroom door has been pushed back. A new closet has been added to the side of the home, adjacent to the master bedroom window. The master bathroom originally was jack-and-jill style with the entry, and has been converted to a single-entry room with updated fixtures indicative of a big-box store style renovation.

Secondary bedroom

Jack-and-jill bath

The secondary bedrooms feature a jack-and-jill bathroom between them, which has been updated in exactly the same manner as the master. The signature Krisel sunken tub is still in place; however the tile surround has been replaced with a fiberglass surround topped with ornate molding. Both bedrooms overlook the west-facing front yard through and feature large clerestory glass windows.

The backyard features a large, in-ground pool with diving board, and a small uncovered patio and more mature landscape. There’s lots of room to revision the yard or enjoy as-is.

This home is clean, move-in ready and offers lots of potential to enjoy as-is or can be renovated and restored back to its modernist roots. Either way it’s a great property at a decent price.
