1963 “Showgirl Chic” party house designed by Palmer & Krisel

pam-kueberWhat’s up? Another house on the Vintage Vegas Home & History Tour with some surprises inside…

bed-with-mirror-above… Like, a master bedroom with a round mirrored-ceiling and walls….

stripper-pole-bathtubmirrored-bath-tub… in THE SAME ROOM, a sunken-style tub, also mirrored, and we kinda thought that pole on the outside edge would be for a …. ahem … dancer …

mirrored-vanity… still in the same room, a mirrored double-sink bathroom vanity …

kohlers-mans-lavatory… with two Kohler Man’s Lavs.

Story was, this house may have been a party house frequented by the Rat Pack. We hypothesized the original bed was round. What a master suite!

This showgirl chic, 1963 home was first owned by Gardner Greenman, who owned GiGi Women’s Clothing Store. Originally designed by Palmer & Krisel as a model 4B, the home was heavily renovated by Greenman during the late 60s and early 70s. Retired garment manufacturer Irving Alfasso took over the home from Greenman, and is rumored to have ties to Vegas’ Rat Pack entertainers. With mirrored walls, glass sliders along the back of the house, and ceilings that go on for miles, it’s easy to imagine…

upholstered-wallsAnother of the bedrooms was more sedate: It featured upholstered walls — which I have always loved. All matchy-matchy to the headboard and coverlet, of course.

kitchen-boothMuch of the house had undergone renovations and additions over the years. But I’m thinking this cute green kitchen booth was original.

swimming-pool-on-golf-courseThe property backed up to a golf course.

midcentury-modern-exterior-detailsThe exterior detailing was beautiful.

    What-a-fabulous house! Too glitzy for me, though. To-many mirrors. I guess I just don’t like looking at myself.
