LAS VEGAS (KTNV) — It appears that Wayne Newton's former home Casa de Shenandoah has been sold.

According to Clark County records, his 36-acre ranch at 6629 S. Pecos Road sold for $5.56 million on July 22, 2019.

Newton's former ranch, which includes the "white house" mansion and 6 other homes and stables, was sold to Smoketree LLC, which has a Las Vegas address.

In addition, a nearby commercial property at 3310 E. Sunset Road that was home to a gift shop and theater was sold on Sept. 24, 2019.

The commercial property, which is approximately 10 acres, was sold to Harsch Investment Properties, which brought several other parcels in the same area.

The properties were sold by ICSD LLC, which is based in Texas and owned by Lacy Harber, who is a well-known Newton fan.

ICSD purchased the properties in 2010 and transformed them into a tourist attraction. Newton initially had a 20 percent stake in the company and was at the ranch almost daily even though he purchased another property as his primary residence in the Las Vegas valley.

However, the tourist attraction closed 3 years later and placed into Chapter 11 bankruptcy proceedings.

Newton originally purchased the property in 1966. At the time, the site was vacant. He built a small house and a stable with a riding corral in 1967. By 1967, the property had 3 houses and a horse hospital. In 1976, Casa de Shenandoah was home to 120 Arabian horses. Construction on the "white house" mansion was completed in 1978. In addition to his many horses, Newton also had a variety of animals living on the property, including dogs, ducks, peacocks, monkeys and other exotic animals.

In 2008, Casa de Shenandoah was named one of the top 5 homes in the country and "MTV Cribs" called it one of the top 3 "Priciest Pads."

Many of his personal items are still at the ranch and it is unknown what will happen to them.
