Location: Las Vegas, Nev.
The Skinny: Tommy Ford, head of the Vegas builder Ford Contracting, is the man responsible for creating some of The Strip's most outrageous facades, including the Venetian, Caesar's Palace, Harrah's, and the Golden Nugget. It is not much of a surprise then that Ford, who is also an accomplished horse breeder, currently owns an over-the-top equestrian estate on the edge of town. An 11-acre compound in Las Vegas proper, Ford Farms boasts a 9,000-square-foot brick main house, a guest house, a home for the horse trainer, and another staff house, with a total of 15 bedrooms and 15 bathrooms. For the horses, Ford built three seven-stall barns, a riding arena, and 1.5 miles of serpentine riding trails. Now, it seems Ford has tired of combining work with pleasure, and has decided to sell the property and continue the breeding activities on a Texas ranch. Currently listed for close to $5M, the compound lies just 10 minutes from The Strip.
