The Ranch that Michael Jackson planned to buy before his death
The legendary and renowned Primm Ranch, located on 10 acres near The Las Vegas Strip, will sell at auction through industry leader Concierge Auctions.
Grandiose in both size and style, unprecedented is the best word to describe one of the most unique and coveted real estate opportunities to present itself not only in Sin City, but globally. New York City-based Concierge Auctions, in cooperation with Kristen Routh-Silberman of Synergy Sotheby’s International Realty, will sell the 10-acre Primm Ranch in Las Vegas, owned by casino and resort developer Gary Primm, at 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.
«Magnificent and opulent properties with as much acreage and as many amenities as the Primm Ranch come to market once in a lifetime,» Routh-Silberman said. «It’s a secluded, gated desert oasis most people only dream of, and is just minutes from the famed Las Vegas Strip. Now, the highest bidder on auction day will demonstrate its true market value. It’s an extremely rare and amazing opportunity to own one of the most unique homes in the country at one’s own bid price.»
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.
«My family and I spared no expense when it came to building this home exactly the way we wanted, which I love, and always will,» Primm said. «But now that my children are older, I’m motivated to sell. I’m looking forward to shaking the hand of the new owner on auction day.» Michael Jackson, the «King of Pop,» toured the Primm Ranch with Routh-Silberman in 2009 and was ready to make an offer before his untimely death. The pop star appreciated its privacy and security features, she said.
With an estimated 37 million visitors annually, Las Vegas is an internationally renowned major resort city offering world-class entertainment, dining, gambling and cultural experiences that make it an international hub unlike any other city. The largest city in the state of Nevada as well as the state’s leading financial and cultural center, Las Vegas’s reputation as «The Entertainment Capital of the World» remains intact, with the city experiencing unprecedented growth in the last several decades. Nevada is among those states without state, individual, and corporate income taxes, helping city leaders draw upon light manufacturing, banking and other commercial interests.
