Former Wayne Newton home in Vegas selling for $70M
LAS VEGAS (AP) — The lavish estate that was home to “King of Las Vegas” Wayne Newton is on the market for $70 million.
The 40-acre (16-hectare) property several miles southeast of the Las Vegas Strip was listed by Sotheby’s on Monday.
Newton lost the property in bankruptcy to CSD LLC, headed by investors Lacy and Dorothy Harber. A representative for the Harbers says a few members of the royal family of Saudi Arabia have inquired about the property.
In flusher days, the crooner’s “Casa de Shenandoah” property featured flamingos, South African penguins and Arabian horses.
Newton, 71, his family, and a menagerie of exotic animals moved in June to a downsized Las Vegas estate on about 20 acres (8 hectares).
