Mad-Men Era Phoenix History For Sale: Bring your Playboy Club Card!  Mid-Century Loft Style at it’s best- 5 Condo-homes in a bulk sale!

Imagine it’s 1965. You’ve just picked up your Jaguar XKE from Flint British Motors…and you have ARRIVED. You know because your sales job at the Hi-Fi center has you rolling out Muntz Stereo-Pak radios that keep you flush with cash AND a Playboy Club Key-card… So where do you live? No question about it: one of the Bunnies (was it Jan, Jacque, or Molly?) turned you on to the ultra-mod and completely hip Scene: 1123 E. Maryland…The Aphrodisiac Apartments!

Then and Now: Flash forward a few decades and just imagine the history these fantastic condos hold. And now, a chance to OWN FIVE! Designed by Modernist Architect Miles Stahm and built in 1964 these were know as the ‘Aphrodisiac Lofts’ and were featured in the October 1965 issue of Playboy Magazine. Locally, they gained quite a reputation: many just called them the Playboy Apartments…

Each unit offers a generous 900 sq feet+- of MCM, and a serious dose of style not found elsewhere. Consider features such as the dramatic double volume living space, efficient open kitchen and a loft bedroom complete with curved walls. Most of the five units offered have been updated: Several retain the floating orb fireplace, sunken conversation pit and lava rock wall.   The Community Pool is… Bunny Shaped!  With five units you control the HOA and are in a great position to restore and renovate with confidence.  Fully leased, these units have excellent potential but are platted and ready to sell individually as condos.

Be sure to read the 1965 Playboy article found in Photos. Group Sale Subject to existing Leases.  Please do not disturb Occupants!
