Historic Paradise Palms "Mid-Mod" Home Restored & Open to the Public Today...

Paradise Palms is one of Las Vegas' jewels of history. A neighborhood that was built in the early 1960's around what was then the Startdust Country Club (National Country Club). The neighborhood is nestled behind the Boulevard Mall off of Desert Inn and Eastern.

Today one of these spectacular Mid-Century Modern Homes will be open to the public. The "ReVision" house, located at 3546 Pueblo Way, was completely retrofitted with all the latest state-of-the-art engineering in the spirit of sustainability while at the same time maintaining its vintage character. The home was a showcase of sustainability during the International Homebuilder Show at the Las Vegas Convention Center last week. This special tour of the house is being sponsored by my good friend Jack LeVine of VeryVintageVegas. Jack has been granted this exclusive one time opportunity to show the world that these great houses can be rehabilitated with the latest in technology, while at the same time preserving them for posterity. Come down to Paradise Palms where you will be able to experience Vegas as it was almost 50 years ago with latest in "Green" technology of today.

The house will be open to the public for FREE today from Noon to 3pm. For more information on this house please visit http://www.veryvintagevegas.com/

Please note that this is NOT an "open-house" nor is this home sale.
