Tour of Merito Manor Residences (1961) by Barry Berkus

February 19, 2017 |


10:00 AM, 10:45 AM, 11:30 AM

Designed by modernist architect Barry Alan Berkus and built in 1961, Merito Manor is a 10-residence, single-story condominium garden community located on one acre in the historic Old Las Palmas neighborhood, just a few blocks from the Uptown Design District.

The dramatic ‘folded plate’ roof design and clerestory windows sitting above decorative rock walls are distinctive examples of midcentury modern architecture. Floor-to-ceiling windows and sliding glass doors overlook large private patios. All residences were originally 1,426 square feet with 2 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms. Tour seven of these thoughtfully restored and individually styled Merito Manor residences. Proceeds from this year’s event will be used for landscape restoration with drought-tolerant and desert landscaping. Light refreshments will be served by the pool.

Event Restrictions | Special Instructions
No children under 12. Please, no pets, food or smoking inside residences. Interior photography at the discretion of the homeowner. Private residences are not wheelchair accessible.
