According to PEOPLE, the gated estate is part of a larger 80-acre compound that Siegfried and Roy referred to as Little Bavaria in tribute to their home country of Germany. The mansion features two bedrooms and three bathrooms, while the surrounding estate includes three additional guest houses, three pools, a cabana and a casita.
“In a way we’ve transported as much of Germany as possible to Las Vegas,” Siegfried told Annette Tapert on the design of Little Bavaria. “On eighty acres in the middle of the desert, we’ve built a Bavarian cottage and created a landscape that is a reminder of my Bavarian upbringing…close the gates and you’re in Southern Germany.”
Roy’s vision for Jungle Palace was quite different, however.
“I always envisaged something Bavarian: green and rocky…but Roy, well, he creates his own world, and you can only assume it’s not going to be like anyone else’s,” Siegfried said. “‘I know exactly what it should be,’ he told me… ‘I’d like to give the tigers an environment in which everything is snow white.’ We had endless fights over this!”
Siegfried and Roy’s former Las Vegas mansion features a number of eclectic amenities, including electric gates, skylights, animal enclosures, and a bird sanctuary.
While Siegfried went on to live in a separate residence, Horn lived at the Jungle Palace until his death in 2020 from complications related to COVID-19.
