Slayer Guitarist Kerry King Hopes a Buyer Will Pick His Modern Vegas Mansion for $4.3M
Leaving Las Vegas? Kerry King, at least, appears to be heading out.
The co-founder and co-lead guitarist for heavy-metal band Slayer has listed his ultramodern, boxy mansion in Sin City.
King picked up the primo property brand-new in 2020 for $3,819,000, and now he’s asking $4,299,000 for the place.
This 6,000-square-foot, five-bedroom, seven-bath, contemporary dwelling is certainly unusual to behold.
Australian photographer Peter Lik, who has ventured into real estate, oversaw the incredible details of this custom-built manse. There’s a beautiful floating staircase, floor-to-ceiling glass walls, gorgeous wood floors, and clean lines at every turn. Each room offers access to the sunny backyard and pool, via glass pocket doors.
Exterior shutters welcome fresh breezes into the house, which is especially delightful in the hot, Southwestern climate. But it gets chilly in the desert sometimes, so the fireplace in the primary bedroom suite comes in handy. And the adjacent bathroom is nearly unbelievable, with its massive vanity and a sculptural tub that sits in a window overlooking the pool.
There’s also a soaking tub outside the main bedroom, on the deck, and a sauna to nudge the luxury quotient upward. Speaking of, a wine room, pool house, and an outdoor kitchen with a bar are ready for top-tier leisure. And eco-aware buyers will appreciate the smart-home automation and solar technology, too.
Slayer seems to have disbanded, having played its last show in November of 2019 in Los Angeles. But King is still jamming with a new iteration of his former group. This band includes ex-Slayer drummer, Paul Bostaph, and is slated to start performing this year.
