Built in 1972, this home retains all of the original features including chandeliers, brass sunburst doors, a spiral staircase, and rosewood throughout. It's like stepping back in time… to Las Vegas in the seventies.
There are two rotundas connected by a glass pavilion. The first rotunda is two stories and includes the four bedrooms, while the second rotunda boasts the living room, dining room, and kitchen.
A close-up view of the circular skylight, whose design is keeping with the whole circular theme throughout the pad.
Understated it is not. The formal dining room is located in the second single-story rotunda.

Step into the main two-story rotunda and enjoy the four bedrooms this spread has to offer. There are two bedrooms and one bath on the first floor.
The listing sure didn't stretch the truth when it proclaimed that the house retained all of its original decor and features. Check out this bathroom, which is straight out of the 1970s.
