Bonanza in Sin City: This Las Vegas Compound Has Its Own Nightclub and Diner
In Las Vegas, everything's not quite what it seems, especially when it comes to real estate.
From the exterior, this home appears to be run-of-the-mill. But once you enter, the surprises never stop. This four-building compound has to be seen to be believed. Seriously. Just wait till we get to the disco tunnel.
Built in 1960 and currently listed for $4.9 million, the property includes a nine-bedroom main home, a three-bedroom duplex, and two additional buildings that house even more bedrooms.
The main home has a timeless style and everything (truly everything!) a buyer could ever want. Did we mention the disco tunnel?
"There are two master suites, a movie theater, a game room, two wet bars, and a large living space overlooking the pool," says listing agent Heather Neuwirth.
Not far from the main house sits a duplex. Each unit of the duplex offers a kitchen, living space, bedrooms, and bathrooms.
Beyond the duplex the two additional buildings may look typical from the outside, but inside they are something else.
One building was strictly designed for getting your groove on. The main level of the home is what Neuwirth calls "the dance hall." You could hold a formal affair with plenty of space for dancing, family gatherings, or banquets.
But if formal isn't your thing, just head to the basement where you'll find a nightclub. And we do mean nightclub. There's a full-service bar, a stage, a dance floor, plenty of seating, and even professional lighting.
Once you're done dancing the night away, let the disco lights guide you through the underground tunnel, right to the '50s-era diner in the basement of the adjacent building.
"It mimics a '50s diner in every way," says Neuwirth, right down to the red and white tile floor, which is original to the home. In fact, the entire room dates to the home's construction.
"The current owners found permits showing the diner was originally built in 1960," says Neuwirth.
If an authentic diner and your own private disco aren't enough Vegas style for you, the property has also rubbed elbows with celebrities throughout the years.
"The home is in what we call 'Old Vegas.' It is where the Rat Pack used to live. Basically all the big-time stars back in the day called Old Vegas home," says Neuwirth. In fact, none other than Michael Jackson owned an adjacent compound.
Mexican pop star Juan Gabriel owned this home for a time. He even put his own touches on the property. The nightclub, for example, has several safari paintings done by Gabriel.
Neuwirth hopes this piece of history is adopted by an entertainer or at least someone with a very large family. After all, those 20 bedrooms aren't going to fill themselves.
