DEN OF INIQUITY Las Vegas' $5M Parisian Palace
Strange recently turned to bizarre in the world of Las Vegas real estate. It appears that flashy entrepreneur Nico Santucci has sold his extravagantly designed house in an eBay auction. The price? $5,000,200. That's right, in an eBay auction. Located a few minutes drive from the Strip and dubbed the Parisian Palace, Santucci earned a considerable income leasing the 10,000-square-foot house for film shoots, private parties, and special events.
Features of the obscenely ostentatious property include brothel-worthy red velvet walls, a fur-covered grand piano, statue-filled grounds, a PBA-certified bowling alley, elaborate murals, gold-gilded stair rails, and its pièce de résistance, a private strip club complete with slutty lighting and a greased pole.

Santucci, a flagrant self-promoter and friend of Michael Jackson, was eager for a quick sale so he could relocate to Beverly Hills, where he's already started redoing houses in his signature stripper club chic style. Unfortunately for Beverly Hills, what happens in Vegas does not always stay in Vegas.
