LAS VEGAS, NV – A massive mega-mansion compound in Las Vegas’ affluent Spanish Trail community that boasts a super-impressive 25 bedrooms and 46 bathrooms has been sold for a whopping $25 million. The sale ties the record for the most expensive home ever sold in the region, which was originally set as a 15,000-square–foot residence in Henderson that sold for $25 million in 2021.
The compound – which was previously built for and owned by Jefri Bolkiah, the Prince of the tiny Asian country of Brunei – comes in at 110,320-square-feet and is situated on a 16-acre plot of land located at 99 Spanish Gate Drive.
The compound has 10 interconnected buildings, with the main house coming in at 37,466-square-feet with five bedrooms and eight baths. There’s also a 47,367-square-foot athletic club/pool house with an indoor badminton and squash courts, a hotel-sized spa and gym, indoor pool, bowling alley and nightclub.
In 2007, singer Michael Jackson had reportedly moved into Bolkiah’s compound and stayed there for some time.
Construction of the property originally began in 1996 and is approximately 90 percent complete; there has been no additional development of the compound since 1999, according to the listing agent. While the home is completely enclosed and finished, appliances aren’t included and some degree of detailed finish work isn’t complete; however, otherwise, the home is mostly completed.
When asked why construction wasn’t finished, the listing agent noted that when Bolkiah built it, he had “different expectations” regarding Las Vegas and ultimately ended up not moving there.
The listing agent has not named the now-former owners of the property, noting that he has not dealt with them directly and instead has been conducting business through their lawyers and financial advisors; the reason the property was put on the market is unknown, he said.
