British Businessman Vows to Restore Liberace Mansion

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 his 50th birthday in true Vegas style, says he plans to restore the mansion to its former flamboyant glory in honor of the previous owner.
