This home is located in Northern Las Vegas.

The home boasts 7 bedrooms on a massive property. It houses an orchestra room as well as several other great rooms for entertaining including a large theatre. The gated outside grounds are even better than the interior as there are multiple tennis and basketball courts on the property as well as a swimming pool that is of a great large size.

Many are picking up luxury real estate in the Las Vegas area due to the lowest prices in the last ten years. Those that said the US recession is over are surely not speaking about all areas of the US because there is clearly a problem that continues throughout many major cities.
