Liberace Mansion for Sale Las Vegas
An historical remnant of Las Vegas’ colorful heyday made the news this week: the 15,000 square foot Liberace Mansion. Built in 1962, Liberace purchased the mansion in 1974 and made it uniquely his own. Containing only two bedrooms but a whopping 10 bathrooms, the mansion still exhibits evidence of Liberace's original decor, including large piano key decorations, ancient Greek pillars and a bedroom ceiling adorned with a $1.6 million reproduction of Michelangelo’s painting from the Sistine Chapel.

Selling for $3.7 million back in 2006 but going to foreclosure in 2010 and sitting vacant since, the sadly neglected property was purchased last Friday for a scant $500k by Martyn Ravenhill, a British property salesman and avid Liberace fan. Martyn, celebrating

Living in Henderson Nevada

Las Vegas Strip View


 

 

 

 

The results from the FBI crime statistics are in, and Henderson Nevada made the 2012 list of the top 20 safest cities to live in the United States. Statistics took into account the size of the population vs the number of violent crimes, including rape and murder.

Ironically, in 2008 Henderson also made the Forbes top 10 list for the most boring cities to live in. Read the Details Here 

As a resident of Henderson, I am delighted with safe, and "boring" is just fine with me. Especially when in 12 minutes I can be at the heart of the Las Vegas Strip, which is about as un-boring as you can get.  And it's only 20 minutes to downtown and Fremont Street with its electric light canopy, live bands and street musicians.
