LAS VEGAS (FOX5) -

A piece of Las Vegas history is up for sale, and it's a steal.

A mansion once owned by Liberace located near University of Nevada Las Vegas is listed at $529,000.

The star bought the house back in the 1970s. Neighbors said they remember seeing Liberace there in his heyday, dressed flamboyantly and surrounded by bodyguards.

Built in the 1960s, the nearly 15,000-square-foot mansion still includes much of Liberace's personal flair, including several rooms adorned with large piano key decorations.

Real estate expert Iddo Gavish of Gavish Real Estate said he has no idea why the price is so low, but that condition and location could play a role.

"The property is just shy of half an acre. Two oversized bedrooms, 10 bathrooms, and they are asking $35 a square foot. You couldn't build that house for $35 a square foot," Gavish said.

The house is bank-owned and went into foreclosure in 2010. FOX5 spotted several interested buyers on Tuesday, including Las Vegas Strip headliner Holly Madison.

Neighbor Mark Lunn said he has fond memories of when Liberace lived at the mansion.

"He was very personable. He never had a bad word to say to anybody. He would get dressed in his costumes and drive straight to the stage at the Hilton," he said.

The house sold for $3.7 million back in 2006. Gavish said the current price will likely start a bidding war, resulting in the home selling for much more than the current asking price.
