A Las Vegas starter house is sold by the CEO of MGM Resorts International
Despite earning $2 million a year as CEO of MGM Resorts International (plus discretionary bonuses), veteran gaming resort industry executive Bill Hornbuckle sold his Las Vegas area starter home for $3 million, some 10 months after he and his wife Wendy bought a more impressive residence nearby for $8.25 million.
Located within Henderson's guard-gated Anthem Country Club, the two-story home measures a commodious 8,525 square feet with six bedrooms and six and a half bathrooms. According to Clark County property records, the Hornbuckles didn't get much more than $2.81 million in February 2005.
An elevator, a majestic staircase, a grand entrance, and soaring ceilings make this home perfect for entertaining. With a huge skylight, the top-of-the-line eat-in kitchen is bathed in light and opens to the entry courtyard with its outdoor fireplace.
First-floor suites are larger than second-floor suites. The spa bath features a steam shower, jetted tub, and dual lavatories as well as a separate sitting area and two large closets.
It also boasts a built-in fireplace in the home office, a movie theater with a wet bar, and a 600-bottle wine cellar. The property has a casita with a bathroom and its own entrance through the courtyard, ideal for in-laws or live-in staff.
On a 1.25-acre blufftop parcel with views of the surrounding mountains and the Strip, the Hornbuckles' new home is also within Anthem Country Club's gates, but in the more exclusive Sanctuary section. This single-story home boasts more than 8,300 square feet and includes six bedrooms, six bathrooms, a chef's kitchen, and a guest cabana alongside a resort-style infinity pool.
