Tiger, I think the exact architectural term of those houses is "Early Ugly".

This is southwest style, Aka: Pueblo Revival, or Santa Fe style. Sometimes I hear Realtors wrongly call it Sedona style. Santa Fe is over 400 years old ...Sedona, although beautiful, is about the same age as Las Vegas, and is a copy of towns in New Mexico where the style (I'm pretty sure) was brought over from Spain by the Conquistadors, and their Moorish slaves in the late 1500's. But if you look at the 900 year old Indian cliff dwellings of the southwest you'll see similarities. Probably has a lot to do with the local materials they had to work with.

You'll also find three other southwest styles, mostly in New Mexico, but also Arizona: Territorial, Mission Revival, and Contemporary Southwest. I've seen Territorial style in Reno.

The worst version...the three storey crunch...has goe out of favor. That was also known as the mountain goat model.
I've seen those types as well.

ACTUALLY...I kinda like them...

Which is probably a good thing for me, as it means I might be able to get one at a decent price someday

I like those kinds. I saw quite a few of them northwest of Phoenix...that smaller highway that goes between Kingman AZ and Phoenix. Evens some of the fastfood restaurants in those areas have that style now.

Major plus in style from me!

There seem to be some in Vegas, but I wonder why it never really caught on so much as they did in AZ and NM.
