Buy Barry Shulman’s Las Vegas Home for $4.9 Million


If you’re looking for a little “Louis XIV-inspired, three-floor penthouse” in Las Vegas, look no further than a $4.9 million pad just put on the market by Barry Shulman and his wife Allyn, according to the Las Vegas Review-Journal.

You thought your condo was upscale, but this one has “columns, chandeliers, and wall sconces… even in closets and baths. Most of the walls are covered in fabric and rope trim, framed with wood molding with 18-carat gold-leaf filigree to achieve an Old World look.” The abode comes in at 5,467 square feet and is located on Desert Inn Road near Paradise Road.

If you think $4.9 million is a shade high, keep in mind that according to the Review-Journal, Shulman spent $7 million designing the interior. The condo even has a rooftop deck for a little Las Vegas sunbathing. There’s a marble staircase, a crystal chandelier from Italy, and a tricked-out home theater. What’s not to like?

The rooftop deck alone is 2,200 square feet and according to the story has “a barbecue and dining area around the corner from an elevated Jacuzzi overlooking the Strip. The 360-degree scenic view includes the Wynn Golf Course to the south. There is a foot of space between the deck floor and the building roof, which was necessary to support the Jacuzzi and other furniture.”

One of the toilets has a heated seat and the master bedroom sports gold leaf trimming. Yes, it sounds like we’re describing a castle in France. There are two bedroom suites, two guest rooms with attached full baths, and the cabinets in the kitchen are lined with gold. Why not?

Shulman (pictured) is the CEO of CardPlayerand has two World Series of Poker bracelets. He has almost $5 million in career live tournament winnings, according to the Hendon Mob, and his son Jeff made the WSOP November Nine in 2009. Barry has a pretty robust JetSetWay blog that chronicles his adventures around the world, most recently in Hong Kong.
