Look at this, tasteful friends... Liberace's old Las Vegas digs go begging at $523,000

Never again will the world know such sublime good taste.

Renovated, that could be the governors mansion of Caftania.

Klassy joint...

We should all chip in and buy it to use as the new DataLounge Clubhouse!

Rumor has it Ms Helen Lawson put in an offer of $250K.

And, R3, ranks of pool boys, Chads and Grants all of them, flitting about with silver trays of Jordan almonds (in pastels).

His ghost reportedly haunts the halls.

I had a taxi drive me by it when I was in Vegas. It was ghastly tacky in 1998, I'll bet it's a real MacArthur Park melting in the sun now.

What a dump! It looks like an abandoned Bar Mitzvah mill in Lakewood.

So, Scott Thorson. They drummed you out of Vegas. So you come crawling back to BroadWay Well Broadway don't go for pills and booze. Now get outta my way. I got an offer on an old queen's house waitng for me.

I just did a Google street view on it. Not the greatest looking of neighborhoods. There seems to be a few abandoned homes on the block and some sort of homeless center across the street. Its like half a mile from the airport.

Horrible. Why does it appear to be in the middle of a busy street/commercial area?

Yes, I too couldn't help noticing how it was placed on a public street--nowadays, celebrities feel like they have to live in bunkers behind walls.

I think it was originally a couple houses, it's in a real average neighborhood, even when he bought it, it wasn't Beverly Hills by any stretch...although, Vegas didn't have much to offer in residential back then.

From the looks of the other homes, it seems like the neighborhood was built in early to mid 60s. Was the airport always where it is now? You could walk to the runway from there.

I can't imagine how much it costs to keep the place from turning into an oven in the Vegas summers, with that huge greenhouse solarium. And it reminds me of the down-at-the-heels casinos you see everywhere in Nevada, the taste is totally "Vegas".

For that price, it could be turned into a GLBT community center, or a home for gay youth. Certainly there's enough space for the latter.

THANK YOU! I was just trying to explain what "tacky" meant to a friend who just moved here from Estonia. He's got it now.

I wonder how long its been empty. It must stink in there and is probably riddled with bugs.

How depressing.

I have an Effiel Tower in my Vegas living room, peasants

All the better to lure in delivery boys on bicycles.

2 bedrooms, 10 bathrooms, 15,000 square feet, WTF?
