The home features a 44-foot tall replica of the Eiffel Tower and collections of art, jewelry, fine furniture and glamorous costumes.
Phyllis’s home is a 26,000-square-foot structure on two acres in the city’s upscale Rancho Circle neighborhood.
The home has bulletproof windows, a basement disco and electric shutters that close instantly at the touch of a button. There is also a guest mansion, two swimming pools, a lagoon, a tennis court, and Phyllis’s Place with a grill, ice cream bar and soda fountain.
The public part of the interior is sectioned into the French room, oriental room and downstairs cabaret, all massive to hold hundreds of guests, which included the occasional sit-down dinner for 500 where Phyllis used her own china, crystal and silver.
Many of the major stars of the 1960s partied there, a home away from home for them when in Las Vegas.
McGuire's Las Vegas mansion was built for her in 1967 by the boyfriend who succeeded Giancana: high-rolling-gambler and oil-man Edward “Tiger Mike” Davis.
In addition to her wealthy boyfriends, Phyllis claimed to have made some good investments in the oil business and amassed a fortune in jewels, art, antiques, the mansion, valuable furnishings and an expensive lifestyle, which continued until her death.
Married and divorced only once at a very young age, she had no children and never remarried.
McGuire was the last living member of The McGuire Sisters. She died at her Las Vegas mansion at age 89.
