YOUR MAMAS NOTES: Please join Your Mama as we tour the Beverly Hills house of Mister Nico Santucci. Before we begin the tour, Your Mama understands we will need to educate the children on who this Mister Santucci is, and why we would include his house in our line up of celebrity homes.

Although Mister Santucci is not a celebrity himself, he spends a great deal of time with high profile individuals and, based on his shameless self promotions, Your Mama strongly suspects that Mister Santucci would love nothing more than to be famous.

One of his more notorious pals is Miss Michael Jackson, the formerly handsome black male entertainer who has in recent years looked more like a not very attractive middle aged white female who has had too much work done on her face. According to a 2003 article in the Las Vegas Review-Journal, it was Mister Santucci who squirreled Miss Jackson from one hideout to another immediately after his arrest on child molestation charges. Miss Jackson was said to be, not surprisingly, disguised as a lady wearing an all black mourning outfit that included a veil.

Among his other endeavors, Mister Santucci, a slick and goateed Sin City restaurateur and entrepreneur, owns and operates an historic estate called The Parisian Palace, a 14,000 square foot mansion in a less than premium Las Vegas location. It is unclear to Your Mama whether Mister Santucci actually lives up in this parody of a house, or if it is meant to be some sort of tourist attraction. Or both. A 2006 article in the Las Vegas Sun reports that the gaudy and glitzy estate can be leased for $10 to $25,000. For one night. The 1+ acre grounds include a swimming pool, a bowling alley, a stripper bar, and more statues of Greek and Roman gods than one would ever care to be surrounded by. Only in Las Vegas, children, only in Las Vegas.

Anyhoo, let's come on back to Beverly Hills and begin our voyage through the Mulholland Drive house Mister Santucci recently put on the market. Although Mister Santucci lives primarily in Sin City, property records reveal that he purchased this house in July of 2006 for $2,780,000. We presume it was Mister Santucci, somewhat renown for his elaborate and eccentric designs, who oversaw the remodel of this home. Given the quick turnaround between his purchase and it being placed back on the market, we can only assume Mister Santucci is fickle with his real estate or this house is a flip venture designed to make a million dollars or more.

Children, before we enter the residence, Your Mama would like for you to take note of the helicopter parked next to the driveway. All properly outfitted homes in Beverly Hills should have a landing place for personal whirligigs, These tiny flyers facilitate a quick commute to Sky Sport & Spa and to Pinkberries all across Los Angeles. This feature also conveniently lets your neighbors, the FedEx delivery person, and the household staff know that you have a lot more money than they do.

Now babies, before we enter Nico Santucci's crystalline palace, we must insist there be no flash photography and that you remove your dirty shoos. We should not need to tell you that Mister Santucci's maid does not need to be on her hands and knees scrubbing your dirt outta his white carpets any more than she is already on her hands and knees working hard for Mister Santucci.

As we pass through the icy white front stair hall and into the main living lounge, we would like the children to keep in mind that, despite appearances, we are in a home and not a strip bar in Las Vegas. Your Mama kindly asks that you refrain from removing your clothing, rubbing your naughty bits on the furniture, or attempting to jam dollar bills into the cleavage of the cleaning gurls.

You'll note that Mister Santucci has thoughtfully included drink tables in the center of the white leather amoeba shaped sofas, which have been custom designed to replicate those often found in high end titty bars and brothels across America.

Let's move on through to the "Milk Bar" which includes a small bar area where guests can order top shelf non-fat, skim, or full fat beverages. You will not find any of that soy shit here, so do not even think about asking.

The newest feature in residences that have been designed for entertaining is the piano lounge. Mister Santucci has kitted his piano lounge with a snow white baby grand piano, providing the perfect perch for the resident chanteuse. The tented ceiling and walls, in dee-luxe white fabric of course, take the household staff the better part of a week to launder. The fabric has been meticulously and pain stakingly draped for maximum acoustic impact, and multiple small flat screen television sets hung throughout the room display lyrics for the weekly Thursday night hip hop sing along.

On to the kitchen, where you will note there are no counter top appliances, tableware, or food products to be seen. Mister Santucci maintains his slim figure by eating as little solid food as possible, so this kitchen has seen almost no actual cooking action in the last year. The full time chef is employed only to order and serve food picked up from the best restaurants in Beverly Hills.

Upstairs we find the bedrooms, some of which maintain the all white Las Vegas strip vibe, but others have a much more homey and cozy feeling as we see in the photograph. The four poster bed was chosen for its versatility and utility during fornication frenzies with ladies found in the better strip joints, night cloobs, and street corners around Los Angeles. However, as we move about the room, please beware the glossy floor as it can sometimes be slippery with fluids.

Lets take this tour out to the back of the house where you can see a distinct Miami Vice in Los Angeles influence. The multiple decks provide ample room for viewing the swimming pool shenanigans, and the large circular spa will accommodate several naked hussies with large and plastic breasts. If anyone is able to tell us what that speedboat like object in the lower left photo is, Your Mama will award you with a free glass of full fat milk from the milk bar.

This concludes our tour of Mister Santucci's glamorous residence. Please be sure to collect your shoos on the way out.

Looks like a gorgeous property!

Hum.. gorgeous isn't the adjective that comes to my mind. It does begin with a G though.. what is that word? Oh yeah, gawdy. Bet MJ loved staying there.

Mama, that speedboat object in the pool is a puzzler. It looks like the Batmobile Las Vegas style. An oversized pool toy for Michael Jackson's kids perhaps?

Creative writing Mama... Thanks for the smiles!!!

With the exception of the bedroom, I would say it looks just like a Vegas whorehouse but that wouldn't be fair to whorehouse decorators everywhere.

Well, today is carnival day in Bev Hills I see :) Why didn't I think of parking the family helicopter on the front lawn highlighted by colorful luminescent spotlights? Just when you thought you'd seen it all..

That pod thing by the pool looks like a jet-ski on top and one of those hydro-tanning bed things on the bottom. I dunno.

Oh, was this done by Bobby Trendy? Yuckin-A!

I have been to the house... seen the copter and the pool. It is in fact a blue and white Batboat... full size... 23 feet long.

Oh and in case you didn't know... the feet of that beautiful Grand Piano have been sawed down to only about a foot tall... so whoever site to play must do so like Schroeder from Charlie Brown... sigh

lets be honest its perfect for LA or Vegas. As a friend of Nicos i must say he is a SOLID,funny and nice guy with a very distinct style. Mama and the rest of you sound like you just might be Hatin. I have been to his Penthouse at the CC its spectacular, his Red Rock Mansion Dido, The Parisian palace were i through a new yrs bash FUN. Its not like the home is in a New England Suburb (ANDOVER\Marble head) LA is not OLD money its a bunch of Narcissistic people like Your Mama who are all trying to be heard period. Lets face it LA and Vegas are very Low Brow city's know not for there institutions of higher learning but there MOVIE stars and Casinos. So stop being something you don't qualify for POMPUS its a fun house not the white house. Puritans Suck. Keep kicking as TIGER see you this weekend. your boy HAMLETT.
P.S. I did how ever like Mamas artical it was pretty funny.

Nico Santucci is actually an incredible designer that most folks might not understand but is it not true that most historically significant creaters were almost always mis-understood? He transormed my condo into a showplace in under 30 days and I flipped within 90. It was wild!
So I'm a beleiever mama....

kimora lee looked at this home on her show kimora life in the fab lane. I think its tacky!

He SOLD it! Made over a million dollars in the worst real estate market in history.
He must be doing something right.
What now mama?! It was cool though. I saw it at the Estate Sale.

Now that's a good flip!!
This house is currently airing on the Janice dickinson show.
It looks incredible.

Anonymous said...

Yes, Santucci sold the house, but he sold it for far less than he was asking. Also, the new owner is completely remodeling the house and getting rid of all Santucci fingerprints and accents. His additions to the house had nothing to do with the sale and everything to do with the location. Helicopter gone, boat gone, bar gone, stupid looking dome gone. It will be much better after a real world-class designer gets a hold of the property.

What's with the HATERS?? Guy made a million dollars on that property and you hate on him a year later? Sounds personal

Anonymous said...

I certainly would not call anyone a hater, however, I see this man who desires "wanna be somebody" as opposed to just another eccentric millionaire designer seeking the limelight. Mr Santucci should not continue to state that his family are direct descendants of the Genovese Family. This is not true.
His accomplishments as a designer are noteworthy and his success in these businesses speak for themselves.
He needs to enjoy his life personally, meet a nice woman, get married and share his good fortune with his own family.
