The Las Vegas-area residence purchased by theatrically demonic bassman and lingual exhibitionist Gene Simmons is back on the market. The KISS founding member picked up the six-bedroom home in an engineered and gated desert community outside Sin City proper toward the end of this past spring. He was, however, reportedly unimpressed with the scorching-hot weather. And so the Henderson property returns to the upscale for sale category this month with an asking price of $14.95 million.
The house sits on a .94-acre lot, a substantial size for a gated community; it’s enough room for a park section populated by 133 hardy trees, a carbon sink that puts an ecologically relevant spin on living well. An outdoor living area with a pool, and some easy-upkeep lawn in a ground cover that isn’t capable of going thirsty hug the house.
The house is a 10,871 sq. ft. two-story modern with a glassy facade that includes a soaring bank of oversized panes that rise ground to roofline around the entrance, and pocketing glass walls that open the back of the house to the city in the distance. As a preamble to entrance, the house features a front walk amidst water. The meditative tenor continues to the shared living area, where an uncluttered, inviting and spacious feel is augmented with metallic accents — including the staircase — which bring a chilly industrial toughness to the overall design style.
Amenities include a double island kitchen — which gets a welcome splash of color by way of red cabinetry — a lounge with an L-shaped bar, and a master suite with corner glass in bedroom and bath.
KISS and fans are about to embark on a cruise for the 10th time; the five-night KISS CRUISE X sails on October 29. The band resumes its final concert tour, The End of the Road World Tour, thereafter.
