    Damn. Finally seeing the inside of this home, I’m now a fan. Sure, the rooms are bigger than they need to be, but this is a really nice mansion. And how could you not fall in love with that backyard, and view.

      Okay, not a “backyard”, but the pool area and staircases.

    Bill Pennington’s house, the founder of Circus Circus Casino ! May he rest in peace even though his casino/hotel is a dump . Finally, the neighbors in the tract homes get some quiet from that noisey helicopter.

    Annnd the clubhouse design continues. Sorry, but $18.5 million in Reno?!? The dining room ain’t bad and the view is pretty cool, but the house is ugly and somber looking.

    The front looks like a nursing home. The rear is quite nice. Not too bad of a home. $18.5 million in Reno is hilarious though.

    Did he build it before all the cheap houses surrounding it went up? How depressing it must have been to have to drive through such mediocrity to get to his place. No wonder he had a helicopter.

    It does look like the clubhouse for the tract house development surrounding it. Even the front entrance gates look like a country club entrance. Up close the exterior is kind of interesting, but from any distance it’s all roof. The interior is completely forgettable: None of the spaces are exciting and some of the rooms feel tenebrous. It’s kind of funny to see that casino-style carpet was incorporated into the house. Funny in a tragic way that is.

    The back yard is all concrete and pool. I would have preferred less driveway/grassland in front and more grass in the back. This place will not sell for a long, long time.

    This house reminds me of the time I saw this massive drug dealer’s mansion built right in the middle of the ghetto in Detroit. Who is going to buy this house in Reno and in that neighborhood at this price or really any price?

    I think this house was just big for the sake of being big and could have been pared down about 30% or more and been just fine. A lot of the rooms just swallow up the furniture and have tons of wasted space.

    This would be laughable at half the price.

    House is way too big – so much unused space. Tasteless and awful.
