Nothing screams extravagant like famed Las Vegas performers Siegfried and Roy’s Jungle Palace. The 2-acre compound, which was built in 1954 and purchased by the duo in 1982, recently hit the market at a cool $3 million — and judging by the photos, it’s worth every penny. 

The famed magicians and animal entertainers called Jungle Palace their home for decades before moving to a 100-acre estate just outside of town in 2003. The compound was then used majorly as an office complex for their executive team up until the unfortunate deaths of Roy in 2020 and Siegfried in 2021. Over the years, however, Jungle Palace became a go-to tourist attraction, with fans showing up in droves to take photos in front of the gold-plated gates that famously don the duo’s initials. 

Consisting of four separate residences, Jungle Palace features a casita, cabana, and three swimming pools along with the amenities that were available for the multiple big cats and other animals roaming the premises. 

Measuring in at 8,750 square feet, the two-story main home features two extravagant bedroom suites — both of which have their own luxury bathrooms as well as two powder rooms for guests. Throughout the residence, guests can find a variety of custom stained-glass windows and beautiful saltillo floor tiles as well as tented ceilings, several lounges and living spaces, and a few libraries to boot.

The kitchen and dining areas may be a bit outdated to some, but the amenities — like a giant tanning bed in a small den and the jacuzzi located in the dining room — seem to make up for it. (Yes, you read that correctly.) So what does the kitchen even look like? While not as tropical as the remainder of the main space, the kitchen is still unique in its own right. Featuring all-white, curved cabinetry and appliances, granite countertops, a small island, and a white retro TV nestled beneath a built-in wine shelf, it’s safe to say that you’ll be taking a trip to the past when you step into this iconic kitchen.

Though the main home has plenty of awe-worthy items and architectural talking points to make this a true sight to see, the three other residences shouldn’t be left out of the conversation either. One 3-bedroom home totals to about 2,000 square feet while the remaining two 2-bedroom homes each feature their own private swimming pool. 

Multiple water features can be found throughout the compound as well as expansive terraces and a number of aviaries and animal enclosures. The entire premise is locked down with six electric gates, ensuring the hottest commodity of all — privacy.
