David Copperfield Purchases Most Expensive Home Ever Recorded in Las Vegas


This is not a trick-David Copperfield did in fact purchase the most expensive home ever recorded in Las Vegas. The Emmy award-winning entertainment icon has become world-famous (with more than $4 billion in ticket sales) for his work as an illusionist creating unfathomable magic tricks, and now he is famous for yet another magical feat. Copperfield is the new owner of a 31,000 square-foot residence in Las Vegas’ Summerlin community valued at $17.55 million. The mansion can be found on Enclave Court, an area that has become known in Vegas as “billionaire’s row.”

Copperfield’s new abode is as modern as it gets. The design by Scottsdale’s famed Swaback Partners is a four-story mansion made up of mostly steel and concrete. Even the front door itself is a marvel at 18 feet tall and weighing 2,000 pounds. Inside the luxury bachelor pad Copperfield will enjoy eight bedrooms, two separate guest homes, an office, a full glass gym, glass wine cellar, full-service spa facilities, a night club, three antique arcade exhibit rooms, a golf simulation room, two commercial elevators and a movie theater. And that’s just on the inside.

Disappearing glass doors open up the home to a resort-style infinity four-edge pool, interior Zen garden, lush tropical landscaping, and a 6,177 square foot garage with a detailing room for exotic cars. Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices Nevada Properties luxury team Shapiro & Sher Group represented both the buyer and seller in the purchase.

“This is the largest individual home sale ever recorded in Southern Nevada,” said Mark Stark, CEO of Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices Nevada Properties. “Ivan Sher, Florence Shapiro and the team at Shapiro & Sher Group represent the top-selling residential real estate team in Nevada. Their level of sophistication when it comes to marketing and selling luxury homes is unsurpassed in the industry.”

His other real estate properties include a four-story Manhattan penthouse, the world’s largest museum of magic history, and Musha Cay at Copperfield Bay, an archipelago of 11 islands in the Bahamas.
