The Las Vegas home of Jerry Lewis made a return to the open market this summer. The 7,925 sq. ft. six-bedroom has been on and off the market almost continuously since Lewis’ death in 2017. It was sold by his estate for $1.2 million in the spring of 2018, and its buyer had it back on the market by early 2019 for $1.6 million; the price was later reduced to $1.3 million. It is now asking $2.7 million.
The house is a potent symbol of higher-end 1960s suburbia. A hunkered red brick two-level, it was completely reimagined for Lewis in the 1980s, and the interiors haven’t changed much, if at all, in the years since his death. A time capsule that marries the sensibilities of its build decade with some of the fashions prevalent in the 1980s, it sports a lot of glossy hardwood, glossy stone tile floors, and crystal chandeliers.
The living room is dominated by the home’s signature statement: a massive stone fireplace, designed to look like a modified outcropping incorporated into the build. Other unusual details include the periodic use of mirrored wall panels, and the wraparound second floor balcony overlooking the lower level.
The kitchen is finished with a color scheme of white interrupted playfully by major appliances in a primary color, straight out of the 1980s. The room’s herringbone-pattern tile, and natural stone double-waterfall island cap and countertops, are among the only newer additions salient in the house.
The home’s specialized amenities include an entertainment room with a pub-style wet bar, and a media room. A heated pool with a waterfall slide and a 600 sq. ft. casita complete a look at the home of a beloved and influential comedian.
