Former Las Vegas Home of Famed Magician David Copperfield Anticipated to Close for Over $5 Million
LAS VEGAS, NV – The former Las Vegas home of famed magician David Copperfield – situated on “Billionaires Row,” known for its many high-priced mansions owned by celebrities and business magnets – was listed in February for $5.25 million and was quickly bought, with reports indicating the hot property will close within the coming days following intense interest from several buyers.
Billionaires Row – located near the Las Vegas Strip – has seen high-powered individuals such as Mike Tyson, Clark Gable, Carole Lombard, Phil Ruffin, the sultan of Brunei, and Wayne Newton call it home over the years.
Copperfield’s former residence – an estate located within the gated Marquis Community at 6755 Agave Azul Court, which served as the magician’s secondary residence as part of his four-year contract with MGM – is a lavish 8,228-square-foot four-level custom estate.
The property sold within just two weeks of being put up for sale, and experts say it is expected to close in early May. The quick turnaround on the listing, according to experts, is due to it being exceedingly rare for any of the homes on Billionaires Row to be put up for sale; on the occasions they do become available, they are often snapped up very quickly.
Custom built by Las Vegas-based developer Blue Heron and California-based firm Danielian Associates, the estate was considered ahead of its time when it was first constructed, utilizing insulated concrete for the home’s frame, solar thermal power, and an energy-efficient cool-roof system. Compared to conventional building techniques, the home – located on a half-acre plot of land – achieved a 76 percent reduction in energy use.
In addition, the home features two primary suites, three en suite guest rooms, an executive office and an elevator. The backyard boasts a vanishing-edge swimming pool with a swim-up bar, spa, sunken outdoor kitchen and a detached Zen casita with pocket doors that hide away.
