A Las Vegas casino owner’s compound with security tunnels, bulletproof doors and secret rooms that Michael Jackson was rumored to buy before he died is going to auction.Located at 7000 Tomiyasu Lane, an exclusive enclave and celebrity-studded street just five minutes from the Las Vegas Strip, the Primm Ranch compound – once desired by pop icon Michael Jackson – will sell without reserve on October 10th. It is currently listed for $14.5 million.
Built upon 10 expansive Nevada acres, the Primm Ranch is comprised of two sub-dividable parcels, extraordinary accommodations and amenities and more than 21,000 square feet of living space including a total of 12 bedrooms and 19 bathrooms. Upon driving through the main gates, visitors are immediately welcomed by dancing fountains and lush landscaping punctuated by palm trees, fruit trees, and grapevines, all of which are fed by the property’s two irrigation wells and ample water rights.
The contemporary, 23-room Mediterranean main residence – a five bedroom, six full and three half-bathroom property comprised of 15,000 interior square feet – offers unique, luxurious amenities including a beauty salon, trophy room with wet bar, multi-floor elevator access, a gym, screening room with a purified air system, a 5,000-bottle wine cellar and tasting room and a casino game room with a full-sized bar, fireplace, pool table and lounging area.
Built to entertain, the entire estate provides a number of fantastic venues and activities. Its resort-style spa features a steam room and sauna, while the tropical swimming pool has waterslides, caves and waterfalls that conceal a large grotto bar and guest suite. Unique security features include underground tunnels, hidden interior passages and 10-foot exterior walls, with certain tunnels leading to a soundproofed, underground shooting range and a 2,000-square-foot, 20-car showroom complete with a deionized-water carwash, power-lifts for on-site vehicle maintenance and two gas stations to support both diesel and unleaded fuel options.
The automated golf driving range offers three separate teeing spaces, while the world-class equestrian facilities include stables with indoor and outdoor stalls, two pasture stalls and a two-stall wash bay. The actual pastures include a 100 x 200 square foot arena, a 100-square-foot round pen for lounging and a 500-square-foot trainer’s quarter with one full and one half bath.
