Illusionist David Copperfield has just proven that mastering a couple of magic tricks will put you on the fast track to success having just shelled out $17.55million to shatter the record for the highest price ever paid for a single family home in Las Vegas.
Copperfield’s new uber-modern mega-mansion is located in a prestigious, guard-gated enclave in the master-planned Summerlin community on the western outskirts of town and was custom-built into a 31,000-square-foot stone, glass and steel kingdom from a flat parcel purchased in 2005 for a humble $2.575 million.
The four-story home features a roof terrace a 6,177-square-foot subterranean garage, 6 bedrooms, 8 full and 3 half bathrooms, plus two guesthouses that each have another bedroom and bathroom. As if that wasn’t enough already, Copperfield’s new digs also includes a golf simulation room, movie theatre, wine cellar, glass-walled gym, full-service spa facility, infinity pool, two commercial grade elevators and a tricked out nightclub with a bar and dance floor.
Adding to the madness is the fact that this is not David Copperfield’s only home. In fact, the master illusionist also maintains a four-story penthouse in Midtown Manhattan he bought in 1997 for $7.4 million, and that’s without even mentioning the string of 11 islands he owns in the Bahamas that he rents out for around $400,000 per week. We’ll just wait for you to pick your jaw up of the floor.
