An east side pocket neighborhood you should know about

There's lots of these really nice little neighborhoods on the east side of Vintage Vegas. Spacious homes on good sized lots. Many have pools, many even have garages (at least the ones that haven't been converted).

Let me introduce you to Carriage Square. These were built as semi-custom homes, and there's only 62 homes in the subdivision. It's located between Desert Inn and Sahara and can be accessed from either Mojave or McLeod. All the homes are on Liberty Circle North or Liberty Circle South. Built in 1969, right at the end of the era we call Vintage Vegas, they're still charming and cute, with a dash of mid-mod.

They're well known for having extra large bedrooms and living rooms, and garages. Carriage square is one of the last all single story neighborhoods to be built till they became popular again in the late 90's. Most of the lots were 7000 sf, but there's a few in the corners of the neighborhood that ranged up to 11000 sf.

All the homes have 2 bathrooms, and 3 or bedrooms, though the living area ranged from 1200 to 2100 sf. There is one home that had a 2 story addition added to it.

Currently there are 2 homes for sale, and 3 have turned over in the last year. The 2 for sale are at $305,000 for a 4 bedroom 1996 square feet and $309,000. for a 1880 sq foot, 3 bedroom with a pool. Both still have garages.
And... we found some fun "yard art" while driving around to take our pictures.
