Hip-hop record producer Suge Knight's former four-bedroom house in Las Vegas has been listed for $1,495,000.
TMZ.com on Wednesday exclusively wrote about the listing of the house, which is at 6980 Monte Rosa Avenue in Las Vegas. Built in 1992, the house was owned by Knight from April 1996 (when he bought it for $1,625,000) until he sold it for $1,200,000 (yes, $1,200,000) May 1998 (that's a long time ago!), according to public records and news accounts. Note that TMZ.com didn't bother mentioning just how long it's been since Knight hung his hat here. The house currently is owned by one of Knight's longtime lawyers (this is another fact that TMZ somehow overlooked).
As TMZ noted, the house was raided back in 2002, long after Knight had moved elsewhere.
Features in the 5,215-square-foot house, which was used as Robert DeNiro's house in the movie "Casino," include six and a half baths, a vaulted ceiling in the living room, a master suite with a sitting room and a walk-in closet, and a kitchen with granite countertops, custom cabinets, an island and marble/stone flooring, according to public records and listing information. Outdoor features on the gated 1.05-acre property include a detached guest house, a circular driveway, a built-in BBQ and a covered patio, according to public records and listing information.

The owner paid $1,190,000 for the house in 2006, according to public records.
This isn't the first time in recent months that Knight's former housing has been in the news. Late last year, Knight's seven-bedroom, 8,272-square-foot Mediterranean-style mansion on 6.65 acres at 3229 Rambla Pacifico Street in Malibu sold in bankruptcy court for $4.56 million, according to public records and the Los Angeles Times. Knight had tried to sell the house in 2007 for $6,200,000, as The Smoking Gun noted at the time. The buyer of that spread is not a celebrity.
