Former Las Vegas Home of Comedy Legend Jerry Lewis Up for Auction with Starting Bid of $1M

LAS VEGAS, NV – After failing to sell earlier this year for its asking price of $2.5 million, the former Las Vegas home of comedy legend Jerry Lewis has now gone to auction with a current starting bid of $1 million.

Its current owner, Australian private lending firm Brumbies Capital, originally purchased the home of the late “King of Comedy” – who resided there for 35 years until his death – in September 2023 for $2 million.

The 7,230 square-foot home – located in Las Vegas’ swanky Scotch 80s neighborhood and boasting an impressive six bedrooms and six bathrooms – initially had difficulty in finding a buyer following Lewis’ passing in 2017 at the age of 91. It was eventually sold to Jane Popple in 2019 for $1.2 million, and then auctioned off for the sum of $2.5 million; however, when the winning bid fell through, it was listed on the open market for $1.8 million.

Thereafter, the property, 1701 Waldman Ave, Las Vegas, was sold to Iddo Gavish of Century 21 Gavish Real Estate for approximately $1.4 million. Gavish subsequently modernized the home, making several large-scale updates to the landscaping, gates, pool, master bathroom and kitchen.

Later, the home was purchased by Blooming Desert LLC in 2021 for $1.4 million, and then put up for sale for a brief amount of time in 2022 for an asking price of $2.7 million; the home was later sold by Nevada Trust Deed Services in a foreclosure sale to Brumbies Capital.

The two-story residence – built in 1954 and located at 1701 Waldman Avenue – will be holding an open house on June 29 followed by an offer presentation, with the formal opening bid set at $999,999 with an undisclosed reserve price that will only be made public if it is met, reports say. Bidders are required to pre-qualify or provide proof of funds.
