Las Vegas’s Extravagant Primm Ranch Is Up for Auction
A famed estate with a spirit that matches the essence of Las Vegas has found its way to the market. Once referred to as “Wonderland” by the late Michael Jackson (who took interest in purchasing the property in 2009), the 10-acre Primm Ranch estate is located five minutes from the Las Vegas Strip and features a laundry list of amenities that rival the finest entertainment in Sin City.
The 15,000-square-foot, Mediterranean-style main residence—comprising five bedrooms, six full bathrooms, and three half bathrooms—boasts sweeping ceilings and honey-colored hardwood floors. The airy kitchen includes a breakfast bar and matching island, two large convection ovens, two dishwashers, a six-burner stove, a double refrigerator, and a barbecue grill. An art deco–themed screening room is outfitted with velvet-lined walls, a popcorn machine, and lighting fixtures reminiscent of flame torches.
Once the end credits roll, there is no need to leave home to have Vegas-style fun: a casino-like game room includes a full bar, pool table, and fireplace. A labyrinth of James Bond–esque underground tunnels and hidden passages lead to a soundproof, underground shooting range and a 20-car showroom furnished with a car wash, a mechanic’s station, and two gas stations.
Outside amenities include: a free-form tropical swimming pool encircled by waterfalls, waterslides, and rock-hewn grottoes (one of which houses Egyptian hieroglyphics and a secluded bar); an adjacent resort-style spa with a steam room and sauna; a three-tee driving range that automatically returns your ball; and a professional-grade equestrian facility with a four-stall horse stable, an arena, a round pen, and a two-stall wash bay.
Although the estate is currently listed at $14.5 million, it will be sold without reserve on October 10 during a live auction hosted by Concierge Auctions. (Inquiries: Sotheby’s International Realty, Kristen Routh-Silberman, 702.360.1414; conciergeauctions.com)
