    Default Casino Owner Frank 'Lefty' Rosenthal's Far-Out Vegas Home for Sale

    Frank 'Lefty' Rosenthal's Far-Out Vegas Home Lists for $777K

    Location: Las Vegas, Nevada
    Price: $777,000

    The former Las Vegas home of Frank "Lefty" Rosenthal, the late casino exec, mob associate, and FBI informant whose exploits inspired Martin Scorsese's Casino, is back on the market for a lucky-sounding $777K. Though some things have changed since Lefty's day, it's about as groovy a 70s time capsule as you're likely to find adjacent to the Las Vegas Country Club.

    According to listing agent Brian Burns, Lefty spent around $500K having the three-bedroom reconstructed back in the mid-70s, after it was gutted by fire. The interior was done by designer Stephen Chase, who at the time was working for Arthur Elrod out in Palm Springs.
    There have been four owners since Lefty (the current ones bought it in 2011 for $615K), all of which have been intent on "keeping the historic integrity of the home intact," says Burns. Most of the floors have been redone over the years, though, and a second-floor picture window was added in back. The current owners redid the kitchen with a new backsplash and Caesarstone countertops, and outfitted the dwelling with a Savant smart home system.


    The pieces of wall art in the living and dining rooms, which were commissioned by Stephen Chase when he was designing the interior, are including in the sale, as are the semicircular couch and lamp in the living room, the bedrooms sets, and a bunch of Lefty memorabilia. Also included, according to a 2011 article in the Las Vegas Review Journal: "bulletproof doors and picture windows, a hidden gun compartment," and a "suspected" bullet mark chipped from one of the windowpanes.





































































    Ummm...pretty much everything I'd expect. *shrugs*

    It's surprisingly tasteful for a 1970s former mobster house in Vegas lol I was expecting so much worse. It would make a cool party house and I actually really like the original wall art in the living and dining rooms as well as the metal door in the 2nd photo. the bedrooms and bathrooms are look like something out of a boogie nights era porno. needs better armchairs though, and art. and then it could be really tastefully tacky

    The house in the movie (Casino) has the same style and vibe. I can just picture Sharon Stone swanning around in her "jewellery closet". I hate that era design wise - "design" ha! I call it 70's retro porno, but it's very groovy baby.

    Quintessential Vegas home, why are there mirrors everywhere except in the bedroom? All those mirrored ceilings give me a headache, but what else can you expect? The only acceptable room is the kitchen, which looks like it was designed to actually be used.

    I'm in the I love it camp.

    Only 777k?
    It'd be listed as over a 1 mil easy up here.

    I don't like it for myself but it's awesome for a 70s time capsule.
