David Copperfield Buys the Most Expensive House in Las Vegas

Over-the-top amenities include a movie theater, three antique arcade rooms, and a golf simulator…

The award-winning illusionist and magician, David Copperfield, just purchased a 31,000-square-foot residence in the upscale Summerlin community of Las Vegas. According to the Clark County Assessor’s Office, the eight-bedroom property sold for $17.5 million, making it the most expensive home ever sold in Las Vegas. (The record was previously held by a home that sold in 2007 for almost $17.4 million.)

Symmetrical palm trees, tropical landscaping, and an infinity-edge pool grace the property’s 1.58 acres, and a towering 18-foot-tall door serves as an entryway to a large open-layout within. The remarkable amenities—including an office, gym, wine cellar, full-service spa, night club, three antique arcade rooms, golf simulation room, Zen garden, and movie theater—are no illusion. Two elevators provide easy access to the home’s four stories. And the 6,177-square-foot garage has a detailing room for exotic cars. The famed illusionist performs in residence at MGM Grand’s David Copperfield Theatre, so the purchase (which joins his four-story penthouse in New York and private Bahamian archipelago Musha Cay) comes as no surprise.
