The second largest home in Nevada just got a little expensive. The Royal Family Landmark Polo Estate Playground at 7030 Tomiyasu Lane in Las Vegas is now publicly listed for $37.5 million by Vegas Fine Estates. The former home of the Sultan of Brunei was initially offered for $60 million when it went on the market for $60 million in November 2009 before the price dropped to $48 million earlier this year, according to Norm Clarke of the Las Vegas Review-Journal.
Construction on the 73,000-square-foot home on 11.2 acres started in 1999. The property features separate guest homes, staff quarters and an office complex with 17 bedroom suites, 36 baths and more than 65,000 square feet of living space. On the grounds you can find horse stables, a championship tennis court, a swimmer’s pool, a restaurant-grade commercial kitchen, a discotheque nightclub, a ballroom, gentleman’s spa and salon, ladies’ spa and salon and outdoor entertainment areas are also situated on this prestigious private compound.
Doors throughout the home open onto the terraces, gardens and pool and tennis court. Beyond an allée of pines sits the equestrian center, where stables contain groomer’s quarters plus stalls for more than 10 horses or polo ponies. Paddocks, a polo practice field and track adjoin.
Real estate agent Zar Zanganeh, who is handling the sale of the estate, was Michael Jackson’s agent when the King of Pop was interested in purchasing the property long before it went on sale.
The Sultan of Brunei’s brother, Prince Jefri, reportedly transformed the two still-unfinished mega mansions into party palaces. The sultan removed Prince Jefri, nicknamed the “Playboy Prince,” as treasurer of Brunei after $30 billion reportedly turned up missing from the tiny, oil-and-gas rich sultanate’s treasury, Clarke reported.
The Sultan of Brunei owns a second home in Vegas, reportedly weighing in at 140,000 square feet and built for $150 million. As far as cost, the $200 million spent by eBay founder Pierre Omidyar in Seven Hills encompasses 19 custom home sites he bought and rebuilt with four structures taking up 65,000 square feet on the land with a view.
