Welcome hot, summery weather! It's another season of Weekend Getaways, where we look at homes within driving distance (or maybe a little further) of Los Angeles that are on the market for you to ogle, then buy.
Location: 9125 S. Buffalo Dr, Las Vegas
Size: 11,543 sq.ft. on almost 2 acre lot
We really have no idea what this house is about, but it definitely beckons to us like a rogue lighthouse steering us into the jagged rocks of a shark infested lagoon. Guesses are welcome -- is it a house or a former funeral home? child actor retirement center? Scientology prison? The listing for the 8 bedroom, 9 bathroom compound underplays the crazy at play in the home, only noting "a stately dining room," "chef's delight kitchen," and "olympic size gardens," as if the Olympics had a gardening competition. There's no mention of the watchtower, drop-down ceilings, circular master bedroom or scary red tile bathroom. Fun for the whole family.
