    If I wasn’t half asleep I’d write another damn story for this place. Willy Wonka would be scared of the tackiness of this place.

    Eww. Vegas is a fun place to party, but that’s about all it has to offer. For the record, *IF* I wanted a house in Vegas, I’d take Floyd Mayweathers.

    I wanna know exactly what part of Europe inspired this. There’s very little that reminds me of Europe here. The Parisian sewers? No, they’re more tasteful than this. Maybe the Pope’s private residence was the inspiration; any man who wears a dress and pointy hat, and rides around in a glass display case, might find this appealing.

    Yes, this is heinous but it’s actually entertaining to look at this disaster that tries to pass for a house. I would love to tour the house simply for the hours worth of laughs.

    What’s truly frightening is that this is probably someone’s idea of a dream house. As has been said here many times, having money does not equal having taste or class.

      Your comment about the Pope was not appreciated.

    I like it. This guy went over the top and then decided that wasn’t far enough and just kept going. This is insane. This would be a lot of fun to ramble around in until you lost your mind.

    Oh come on people. If there is one place in the world where this type of tasteless gaudy excess should be allowed and even encouraged is Las Vegas. They obviously used the same interior design firm that has worked on a few casinos in their day. I’d say the design is location appropriate.

    Without a doubt, this is the absolute worst I have ever seen, anywhere! It is unspeakably hideous. Truly, there are no words to describe it adequately.

    The owners must be color-blind, if not completely blind.

    I’m totally LOVIN this place. Can you imagine the crazy gettin-your-freak-on parties this place could have? Holy SHIT! It would be A.W.E.S.O.M.E! I would have a field day with this place.

    Ok picture this: You invite a whole bunch of peeps over. Sprinkle in a busload of drag queens and some hipsters, a couple of pro sports faces, a handful of SWM republicans from Utah, a trio of loud BBW’s and what FUN you could have!

    OMG IT HAS a THRONE! The bondage parties would be UNBELIEVABLE!

    I am completely serious. This place has party potential like no other!

      All this time I was thinking you were some sort of arbiter of taste and style, and you’re really a dark horse.

      I know there is a tasteful place on Maple Street, one on Pine Vista and a third on Mountain Crest Drive, There, Satisfied now? I just accounted for all of the tasteful homes in the greater Vegas city limits on my one hand.

      But seriously this place is repulsively, garishly marvelous. A show stopper of bad taste to the max. I would make it a museum.

    This pad has changed a lot since built. It was originally built and owned by Charles Johnson, who rode the dot com boom with his company PurchasePro. One of the many hero to zero bankrupt busts in the Vegas scene, with a touch of fraud and court time thrown in for good measure. Now in the hands of the Kaufman (Abe and his son(?)Michael) trusts (who also own a nice pad at 716 N Palm Drive in Beverly Hills, down the street from the Semel (Yahoo! dude) house, which I believe you featured a while back…) I can only imagine how this place went from a $3M-$6M value to a $22M ask…’cause that decor isn’t gonna do it, kids.

    The only thing that makes any sense to me, is that the designer was trying to get a slot on some Bravo network TV show, and wanted to design something like this in order to be noticed.Sometimes bad is more memorable than good.

    This house is committing unspeakable sins against good taste, eyesight, nature, and even God himself. “Gaud,” on the other hand, approves

    As an interior designer, I can say that this home was obviously designed to look like the interiors of the casinos in Vegas. If that was the intent, the design is successful. The owner decides what he wants and the designer puts it in place. Personally, although it is undoubtedly gaudy and over the top, I rather like it for what and where it is.
