Whether you want to accept it or not, folks, magic is real. So real, in fact, that legendary magician Harry Houdini's $12 million former Hollywood Hills estate is for $1,500 a night. Okay, that's not necessarily a trick, but it's every bit as exciting—especially when you see this space.
Located just minutes from Sunset Boulevard and Universal City in California, the 3,000-square-foot home sits on a five-acre property, and yes, its features are just as unbelievable as the magician's stunts. There's a three-story waterfall, canyon views, hiking trails, breathtaking gardens, a Koi pond, and enough parking to hold more than 80 cars. But there's so much more to it than meets the eye.
The outdoor stonework alone is enough to mesmerize you.
The mirrored walls give the illusion that the space is even bigger than it is, but rest assured, this is a spacious living room to begin with. No smoke—just mirrors—here.
Since you'll have to stay a minimum of two nights, you have no excuse but to make use of it. And throw an epic dinner party.
Between each bedroom, the couches, and rollaway beds, this estate comfortably sleeps eight to 14 people.
Especially this one. So you can soak in the tub post-party.
Along with seven...yes, seven, gazebos.
