King of Pop Michael Jackson’s Los Angeles house, where he breathed his last, is once again for sale.
The mansion, which was being rented for 100,000 dollars-a-month by the late pop legend, has been on and off the market for years, but has now been re-listed at a new price of $23.9 million.
All contents relating to Jackson have been removed from the home, following the sale of most of Jackson’s personal items, furniture and collections during a December 2011 auction.
Per the listing, the seven-bedroom, 13-bathroom property, described as the centrepiece of an “elegant and sophisticated French chateau estate,” includes its own movie theater, a gym and a pool.
“The estate… offers a glamorous theater for screenings in a grand style, a magnificent wine cellar and tasting room, elevator, a spacious spa with gym, and an elegant guesthouse,” as well as an “expansive pool and gardens,” it said.
The house, built in 2002 in the Holmby Hills district west of Los Angeles, includes more than 17,000 square feet of living space with 12 working fireplaces, and is set in a “lush and mature landscape” of some 1.26 acres.
TMZ reported that the property went on sale on Monday, and said a “major celebrity” is set to visit it on Thursday.
Realtor Mauricio Umansky, head of The Agency in Beverly Hills, will only show the property to serious buyers who have pre-qualified, meaning they have the money to buy it. Umansky told Zillow.com he is hopeful that the home’s history wouldn’t be a setback.
“It is what it is,” Umansky, the hubby of Hilton’s reality TV star aunt Kyle Richards, explained. “There’s no need to hide it. Michael Jackson was an amazing human being — he changed music as we know it. Unfortunately, he passed away. It doesn’t take away from the house. He loved the master bedroom and he loved the grounds. He was happy there.”
