This baby has seemingly been on the market forever. Liberace's dream house, draped in velvet darling, first went on the market in December 2007 with a $1.095 million price tag. The "Smashing, Splendid, Brave, Daring and Unspoiled" four-bedroom, four-and-a-half bath house features custom velvet walls in red, pink and orange, "bedrooms are canopied, swagged, with gold vein mirrored walls, ceiling to floor drapes creating an exotic and opulent atmosphere. The furnishings are custom in matching materials and colors,the pool is gorgeous, the grounds are impeccable, and the piece de resistence, a Pink Princess telephone in the master bedroom!" Now the price has been deeply cut. The new listing price is $796,000 or $245 per square foot for the 3,250 square foot property. The listing is also trying a new marketing tactic: " Functional nostalgia makes this property a fantastic fantasy residence or a savvy investment. Perfect for photo shoots, theme parties, fund-raisers and film locations to mention a few potential uses."
