Decorative Concrete Block Designs Are Used On Mid Century Modern Las Vegas Homes To Provide Privacy And Light

Real Estate Agent with Bella Vegas Homes

I'm running a series of posts on VeryVintageVegas about the many designs we find in all the vintage and historic neighborhoods of Las Vegas. I've collected pictures of about 50 of them, and am running them as a daily feature.

Stone Screens, as they're often called are named after a rather famous Mid Century Modern Architect named Edward Durell STONE. We see them used as privacy screens, accents, block wall edges and in many other ways.

From the 1960’s neighborhood called Winterwood which is on both sides of Sahara Avenue, EAST Of Nellis Boulevard on the far west side. There’s a lot of modernism, as well as ranch style. 

Our company has a very interesting mid mod listing there, but geographically it’s not really in Vintage Vegas as I define it. It’s way east of what we normally focus on. The block pattern we’re looking at today is across the street from it. But if you’re focus is purely on Mid Century Modern then Winterwood should be on you list.

Las Vegas Homes For Sale Often Have Mid century modern stone screensAs always, it’s just a matter of where you focus.





Mid Century Modern Homes For Sale In Las VegasA reader emailed me, and said I should be showing the bigger or total wall so that we can see it in context. When I took most of the pictures during the last several years, I didn’t do that. I think it’s much more fun for YOU to take a drive and find them in context for yourself. I happen to have a picture of this one, so here it is.

A bit retro. I am not a fan of the pre-formed lock as it looks like you are stepping into the 70's.

No, Adam, we're stepping into the 60's! And we're doing it with great enthusiasm.

But thanks for at least stopping by.

I love this style!  Growing up in the 60's/70's, I spent a lot of time in Miami Beach.  This style was very prevalent there at the time and your post brought back a lot of old memories!  Thanks for sharing!

So many styles come back after a period of time - glass blocks and terrazzo have resurfaced. We have lots of this type of concrete block screens in the older homes in Florida.

I have visited Las Vegas on many occasions to attend the NAB conference held there each year. When I'm in Vegas I try to take in all of the sites, because it's a wonderful city. I have visited these neighborhoods Jack is talking about and the architect is marvelous.
