The ‘jungle palace’ of Las Vegas, owned by magicians Siegfried Fischbacher and Roy Horn, was listed for sale for $3 million. The main house sits on an 8,750 sq. ft. area with two bedrooms and four baths.
Professionally known as Siegfried and Roy, the duo met in 1959 on a German cruise ship. Their mutual love for animals made them friends and even led to the birth of The Mirage Las Vegas show that started in 1990 and ended in 2003.

The jungle palace was home to Siegfried and Roy for over three decades. They had a variety of animals, like tigers, big white cats, and other exotic animals, which also lived in the palace.
The extravagant mansion was listed for sale in March 2023 and found a buyer shortly within the month. The new mansion owners are Brett and George Carden, who also own Carden International Circus. The mansion compound was constructed in 1954, but Siegfried and Roy bought it in 1982 and transformed it into a jungle where they could live with their animals.
The entire compound for this property occupies eight acres of land and includes four houses. The main house covers 8750 sq. ft. and has two bedrooms and four baths. Roy Horn is believed to have been occupying the main place, while Siegfried lived in one of the other homes in the compound.
The main house has striking Moroccan-style architecture with stained glass windows and tiled floors. There’s plenty of animal-themed artwork inside, as well as artificial plants, which add to the beauty of the interior. The windows are stained and large enough to allow enough natural light and offer amazing outside views. The main entry is large and welcomes you to a gilded staircase and a spacious living room with antique furniture and a rug.
The primary bedroom boasts custom artwork, multi-colored ceilings, and cheetah-themed adorn. Roy is said to have been sleeping with some animals in the same room; no wonder it’s spacious with many animal-themed arts.
The second largest home on the property occupies 1959 sq. Ft. and comes with two bedrooms and three baths, which is believed to have been occupied by Siegfried. The third largest home in the compound occupies 1875 sq. ft. and has two bedrooms and two baths. Each house on the property has its own swimming pool.
The exterior compound of this property is well maintained with well-landscaped ground and pathways. Matured palm trees enhance the compound’s serenity and provide enough shade for outdoor stays. The entire property is fenced with six electric fences; all marked SR, the short forms of Siegfried and Roy.
Other adorable features in the compound include a water fountain, cat and bird sanctuaries, and a garage that can accommodate up to ten cars. The property’s location is 15 miles from the Las Vegas Strip, and there are many nearby resorts, casinos, shopping malls, and even national parks. Other celebrities who also live in Las Vegas include Floyd May Weather and Celine Dion.
