A rock star’s fully furnished condo on the market, a players club purchase, and new spots for outdoor dining are making real estate news.
Paul Stanley’s fully furnished Flamingo Road penthouse is on the market for a little more than half what he paid for it in 2008, right before the financial crisis rocked the real estate market.
ROCK STAR DIGS: Partying like a rock star isn’t difficult in Vegas, and now you can live like one, too. Kiss guitarist Paul Stanley has put his 3,142-square-foot, 57th-floor penthouse at Palms Place on the market for $1.799 million. It comes fully furnished, right down to Stanley’s bedroom set, oversize dining table, huge couches, pool table, and rock star-worthy outdoor Jacuzzi with skyline views. “You’ve got full hotel amenities,” says listing broker Gavin Ernstone, including “room service, a tanning salon, a full gym, and the great Simon restaurant.” And while a “sky tube” connects Palms Place to the Palms Casino Resort, the building has its own entrance, so you can dodge autograph seekers.
Pamela Anderson recently purchased this 10,000-plus-square-foot mansion designed by John Rattenbury, a protégé of Frank Lloyd Wright.
MOST APPROPRIATE STREET NAME: From sex tapes to starchitecture, Pamela Anderson (famously filmed in bed with Tommy Lee) and Rick Salomon (costar of Paris Hilton’s most famous on-camera appearance) know how to keep things lively. Anderson recently filed for divorce from Salomon, not long after the power couple purchased 9028 Players Club Drive, a 10,000-plus-square-foot mansion designed by John Rattenbury, a protégé of Frank Lloyd Wright. They paid $3.8 million for the house, which cost $8.5 million to build. Listing agent Kamran Zand of Luxury Estates International says that 100 people, including casino executives and Ultimate Fighting Championship mogul Dana White, visited the open house. The residence includes four bedrooms, a 27-foot observation tower, and 1,000 tons of custom stone amid indoor and outdoor waterfalls, tropical trees, desert plants, a golf course, and mountain views. But Anderson and Salomon added a touch of their own. “They gutted it,” Zand reports. “It’s a transformation. More people are attracted to modern, clean lines now.”
Monte Carlo’s new open-air dining plaza.
COME OUT AND PLAY: As part of MGM Resorts’ latest massive Strip makeover, Monte Carlo has unveiled an open-air dining plaza with an energetic collection of eateries, including the Vegas debuts of the popular LA pizza destination 800 Degrees and Chicago chef Matthias Merges’s highly acclaimed Yusho, which serves elevated versions of Japanese street food. Rounding out the new spots are Double Barrel Roadhouse, featuring craft cocktails, sliders, and deep-fried s’mores, and the organic ice cream shop BLVD Creamery. “We didn’t want mass chains of restaurants and what people can see in any other city they travel to,” says Monte Carlo GM Patrick Miller. This part of the Strip will receive further enhancement in 2016 when MGM Resorts opens a 20,000-seat arena and the new development The Park, offering the first Vegas outpost of the famed NY burger mecca Shake Shack.
