Las Vegas Neighborhoods with Mid-Century Modern Homes
Mid-Century Modern homes are back in a big way and here to stay. They are popular for their breezy open floor plans, clean lines and minimal design, as well as their combination of muted and vibrant colors.

You don’t have to look far to find Mid-Century Modern neighborhoods in Las Vegas. The city offers countless options for home buyers in search of this highly coveted home style.
