The historic Scotch 80s, home to powerhouse players such as Oscar Goodman and the late Howard Hughes, has been on the rise for the better part of the decade.
The late entertainer Jerry Lewis’ estate in Scotch 80s was his home for 30 years. The hip neighborhood is a smart investment.
“I think people buying down here, they’re looking to permanently live,” says John Tippins, CEO of real estate firm Northcap. That’s a choice Tippins himself has made, now in his second home in the Downtown-adjacent residential area, which is common among many of its residents. Whether remodeling the unique midcentury modern homes or doing a new build, dropping $1 million for the typical half-acre to acre lot is a steal thanks to its proximity to the Strip and Downtown. But it’s also the neighborhood feel that Tippins feels people are after. “You get to know all of your neighbors. I think the reason there’s not that many homes on the market is people [who live here] work really hard to tell their friends about these homes.”
