LAS VEGAS, NV – A historic Las Vegas residence that was once the former home of late Country Music great Kenny Rogers has just been listed on the open market with an asking price of over $3 million, according to reports.
A 7,249-square-foot single-story estate located at 500 Shetland Road, the glamorous home is situated on one acre of land and has been listed for $3,199,999. The residence was completely customized and its design was considered extremely forward-thinking and progressive when it was originally constructed back in the early 1970’s.
The estate boasts a private gated entry, a grand double-door glass entry, four en suite bedrooms with dual master suites, six and a half bathrooms, an office/library, large living room, dining room, and great room with a sunken bar lined with padded club chairs. Design aesthetics include beveled mirrored walls, fabric upholstered walls, marble flooring, crown molding, and large amounts of natural stone.
The property is topped off by a large, lush backyard with a resort-style pool with spa and a sizable deck area.
Several notable personalities have called the residence home in the years since it was built. Kenny Rogers, the iconic singer and actor, purchased the home in 1995 and owned it for three years, later selling it to casino mogul Phil Ruffin in 1998. Ruffin’s wife at the time, Lynne, then proceeded with extensive renovations, and stayed in the home after the couple divorced in the early 2000’s. She later remarried a man named R.T. Smith and lived in the home until her death in 2011, with Smith remaining there until his passing in 2019.
The property then fell into the hands of Smith’s two step-children, who are co-trustees of the estate; with the home having fallen into a state of disrepair, they have since performed extensive restorations to return the home to its former glory before listing it on the real estate market.
