Siegfried & Roy’s Las Vegas home hits the market for $3M
The legendary estate of two deceased illusionists in Nevada is looking for a new owner.
Despite once doomed to the wrecking ball, the former estate of flamboyant German-American duo Siegfried & Roy is now up for sale.
For more than three decades, this 100-acre Las Vegas estate was the magical citadel of Siegfried Fischbacher and Roy Horn.
Following Horn’s death from COVID-19 complications in 2020, Fischbacher’s passing in 2021 after a battle with terminal pancreatic cancer — and an apparently evaded death knell for the complex that was ringed by a 334-unit apartment building slated to take its place – the late mages’ lavish fortress is looking for a new set of owners.
Aaron Taylor of eXp Realty and the Real Estate Guy holds the listasking for $3 million.
Nicknamed Little Bavaria and Jungle Palace, the decadent abode has a clock tower, a 10-car garage, miles of labyrinthine walkways, and amenities for the duo’s myriad exotic pets (including horses, black swans, tigers, turkeys, cranes, and an amazing variety of cats and dogs), and an Olympic swimming pool.
In their day, the property also boasted a water park, a private chapel, and a collection of celebrity relics – highlights include a clock once owned by Napoleon, gifted gold Liberace candlesticks, and a gem-encrusted sword said to have once belonged to Genghis Khan.
“We have houses on each side, one for Roy and one for me,” Fischbacher explained in an interview with Las Vegas Weekly of best friends’ separate living arrangements. “They’re like two arms, wrapped around each other, and we meet in the middle.”
(The pair famously coy about their status as symbols of the counterculture: “”Gay icons? To these people? Well, I’m very honored,” Fischbacher told Vanity Fair in 1999. “In my life, I have a lot of friends who are gay, and I’ve made a lot of friends in show business, and I’ve found that they’re always interesting, intelligent, good people, and fun to hang out with.)
The current listing additionally states that it boasts six electric gates, water features throughout the property, custom stained glass, a bird sanctuary and animal enclosures galore.
The sale is also a bundle of all four lots on the property, including the 8,700+ square foot main house, three separate guest houses, a casita, a cabana and three swimming pools.
