The most expensive home in Las Vegas has a new owner.

It was purchased by magician and Las Vegas Strip headliner David Copperfield.

The home is located in Enclave Court, known as "billionaire's row," in Summerlin. It sold for $17.5 million, the most money ever paid for a home in Las Vegas.

The four-story home, which was designed by Scottsdale's famed Swaback Partners, includes 8 bedrooms and 2 guest houses. The towering front door is 18 feet tall and weighs 2,000 pounds.

The home also has its own gym, wine cellar, full-service spa, a nightclub, three antique arcade exhibit rooms, a golf simulation room and a movie theater.

Disappearing glass doors open up the home to a resort-style infinity pool and interior Zen garden.

In addition, there is a 6,177-square-foot garage with a detailing room for exotic cars.

Copperfield has been performing for years on the Las Vegas Strip at the MGM Grand. His other real estate properties include a four-story Manhattan penthouse, the world's largest museum of magic history, and an archipelago of 11 islands in the Bahamas.
