Businessman invests millions to restore Liberace’s mansion
– The hints that Liberace once owned the place aren’t exactly subtle.
The mirrors, not just on very wall, but also, in tinier versions, affixed to a piano and a bar in the living room. The stage costumes — in pink and classic black — preserved in display cases in the dining room. And, in the master bathroom, an image of a smiling, cherub-flanked Liberace looking down, as if in benediction, from the ceiling that’d be really creepy if it weren’t so darned adorable.

A lot can change in a few years. Need evidence? Look at the Liberace Mansion
at 4982 Shirley St. In summer 2013, the 14,393-square-foot former part-time residence of iconic piano virtuoso Wladziu Valentino Liberace (1919-1987) –
known for his showmanship while performing on the Las Vegas Strip, sequined costumes and opulent lifestyle – was in foreclosure after several changes of ownership following his 1987 death. Signs of neglect were evident both inside and out, and its cracking walls were a sign of a sink hole hidden under its master suite wing. Its glory days of glitz and glamour were no more.
That was then and this is now.

Bringing music back to Liberace
mansion – Real Estate Millions joined an “OK!” television crew for an insider look at the Liberace mansion preservation and restoration effort by its new owner, Martyn Ravenhill. We saw glimmers of Liberace’s unique design tastes along with how dirty a foundation repair caused by two sinkholes can be. In January, we reported on its progress (no evidence of sinkholes!) albeit a long to-do list that Ravenhill shared during a private tour.
Progress has been made as the mansion was prepared to host Saturday’s private party in support of Opera Las Vegas.
