LAS VEGAS (AP) -

 LAS VEGAS (AP) -- A business group says the $17.55 million paid for a northwest Las Vegas home by Strip illusion show headliner David Copperfield set an area record.


   The Greater Las Vegas Association of Realtors said Thursday the price eclipsed the $17.375 million paid in 2007 for a mansion at the Shadow Creek Golf Club in North Las Vegas.


   The broker, Berkshire Hathaway Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices, tells the Las Vegas Review-Journal Copperfield's 31,000-square-foot home has eight bedrooms, an office, gym, wine cellar, two commercial elevators and a movie theater.


   The nearly 1.6-acre property on Enclave Court in Summerlin also features a spa, nightclub, golf simulation room, Zen garden and resort-style infinity swimming pool.


   The seller, health care executive Kevin Hooks, bought the land for $2.575 million in 2005 and built the house around 2011. It was designed by Swaback Partners of Scottsdale, Arizona.
