And for his next trick, David Copperfield chops Las Vegas records in half

The illusionist David Copperfield is thought to have smashed Las Vegas records with the purchase of his new $17.5 million home.

According to the Las Vegas Review-Journal, the four-story house, which is in Las Vegas’ swanky Summerlin neighborhood, hadn’t been listed for sale.

The 31,000-square-foot property comes with eight bedrooms, an office, a gym, a wine cellar, a full-service spa, a nightclub, three antique arcade exhibit rooms, a golf simulation room, two commercial elevators, a movie theater, an infinity four-edge pool, an interior Zen garden, tropical landscaping, and a 6,177-square-foot garage with a detailing room.

The spread, designed by Swaback Partners of Scottsdale, Arizona, was sold by health care executive Kevin Hooks, who bought the land for $2.5 million in 2005 and built the house around 2011.

Copperfield’s other properties include a four-story penthouse in Midtown’s Galleria building, plus the world’s largest museum of magic history, and Musha Cay at Copperfield Bay, an archipelago of 11 islands in the Bahamas.

Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices Nevada Properties’ luxury team, Shapiro & Sher Group, represented both the buyer and seller in the purchase.
