A huge Las Vegas mega-mansion built for the Prince of Brunei sold last week for $25 million. Despite significant discounts, the deal became the most expensive sale of the year in the city.
The spacious estate, located in the Spanish Trail area and covering approximately 8 hectares, has a total of 25 bedrooms and 46 bathrooms. The main house offers five bedrooms and eight bathrooms, as well as a large living room, dining room, and music room. The 4,700 square meter sports club with badminton and squash courts, spa, indoor pool, bowling alley and nightclub features a guest suite and 10 bathrooms. The surrounding area also includes two guest houses, villas, a training pavilion and carriage house, a garage for 16 cars and 30 outdoor parking spaces. Nearby there is a tennis court, garden terraces and three swimming pools. The total usable living area, distributed across ten buildings, exceeds 11,000 square meters.
The mansion was sold by a company associated with Geoffrey Bolkiah, Prince of Brunei. Due to legal problems and property confiscation, he has not been able to complete his mega-mansion since 1996. In 2007, the complex was rented to Michael Jackson, and in recent years it has been empty. It’s missing some appliances and some rooms are unfinished, but otherwise it’s a move-in ready home that’s only been on the market for nine days.
The city’s previous record holder, a 1,500-square-foot state-of-the-art home located in Henderson, sold in 2021 for $24.99 million. It is now back on the market for $34 million.
