Casa de Shenandoah is the ranch that singer Wayne Newton (“Mr. Las Vegas”) shared with his family for 45 years until financial problems led to a development company buying the property in the hopes of turning it into a Graceland-like museum. That deal has since fallen apart in various bitter lawsuits and allegations with the Newtons being booted out of their home.
The entire ranch is now listed for a mere $70 million with a lengthy slideshow being posted on Yahoo (even more pictures can be found here) as it features eight separate homes, a car museum, acres of stables and corrals, a zoo area, several pools and what interests us the most (since this is an aviation webzine…), a jet terminal complete with a jet!
In response to a comment we decided to add these two pictures for some clarification as the property is near the airport BUT it lacks an actual runway (the aircraft is visible in the closeup):
Over the top and rather tacky? Perhaps. But hey, what do you expect in Las Vegas? Moreover, it could be much worst (click here to see a slideshow of Liberace’s now rather rundown home that was recently bought by a British real estate developer…)
