Liberace's former Las Vegas home is on sale for $529,900, more than $3 million less than its sale price at the height of the market. 

Known for his extravagant behavior both onstage and off, the flamboyant musician bought the two-story, 14,939-square-foot mansion in 1974 and then renovated the home to match his over-the-top style.  

Sitting on half an acre, the mansion has two bedrooms, 10 bath and several large areas for entertaining, according to the Associated Press

Built in 1962, the home's appearance is far from its prime. However, it still has evidence of Liberace's style, including several chandeliers and tile piano keys decorating the floor of one of the rooms. The home also has a mirror bar etched with a piano image and "Liberace's Stage Friends." It also features a bedroom ceiling with a reproduction of Michelangelo's painting at the Sistine Chapel. 

The mansion was sold by his foundation to a couple two years after the extravagant musician's death in 1987. They sold the mansion for $3.7 million in 2006. Yet another victim of Las Vegas' housing market crash, the home is currently abandoned and owned by a bank who is selling it to cash buyers only, according to Curbed.

Liberace was the best-paid entertainer in the world from 1950 to 1970, the AP reports. HBO recently highlighted the musician with its biopic "Behind the Candelabra."
