|Front of home|
Built in 1963 on the 12th fairway of the Las Vegas National Golf Club is this Palmer & Krisel-designed tri-level home which has been recently flipped. Expanded to 2,020 square feet, this home includes four bedrooms and two-and-a-half bathrooms, a two car garage and an in-ground pool all on a 12,100 square-foot lot with an asking price of $324,900.
|Driveway and front of home|
Last sold in November 2015 for $172,000, this home has seen recent updates to nearly every surface, yet carries one major drawback: the home is located directly on a six lane, 45 mph arterial roadway surrounded by offices. For those who don’t mind traffic noise this won’t be an issue, but for most buyers there’s better locations at comparable prices to be found.
Out front, the exterior of the home has been recently painted and fresh generally drought-tolerant landscape has been installed. The original two-car carport has been converted to a two-car garage, enclosed with board and batten siding matching that of the original façade of the home. The air conditioner and ductwork has unfortunately been mounted directly above the front door, which creates an unsightly view to all who enter the home.
|Living room, entry and kitchen|
|Entry, kitchen and living|
A pair of traditionally-styled leaded glass double doors leads past a small foyer into the open living and dining rooms. The original floating modernist fireplace has been replaced with a very traditional stone-veneered fireplace with hearth. Luckily, the original clerestories and windows are still intact throughout the living room, while the floor-to-ceiling windows and glass sliders offer views of the backyard and golf course beyond.
The kitchen has been updated in a current, contemporary style which is in keeping with the modernist roots of the home. Clean, simple white shaker cabinets are topped with grey quartz counters and accented with glass subway tile backsplashes. Stainless steel appliances and a farmhouse sink round out the kitchen, which has been opened to the living area.
|Secondary bedroom - windows don't match any other part of the home|
|Lower level family room|
|Lower level family room|
Two secondary bedrooms are located upstairs at the front of the home, and are essentially identical with the exception of a mismatched set of mullioned windows in one room. The master bedroom sits at the rear of the upper floor, and has been expanded with a large dressing area, sitting area and a balcony overlooking the backyard. The master bath features a soaking tub, stall shower and double vanities. The lower portion of the home incorporates a family room area in a labyrinth-like set up along with a half-bath.
|Backyard and back of home|
|Backyard and golf course views|
|Pool & back of home|
The backyard incorporates a small covered patio, newly installed turf and a large in-ground pool. Mature trees are combined with newer plantings, and a combination of open and solid fencing offers views and privacy from the adjacent golf course.
This midcentury home will only appeal to a specific buyer, but there’s great opportunity to own a decent-sized golf course home for those who don’t mind living on a busy road.
