The house Michael Jackson died in has come up on the market – for $29 million.
The King of Pop was renting the LA mansion for a whopping $100,000 a month when he died in June last year.
According the website Realtor, Jacko’s old property is ‘a major achievement in design and proportion, incorporating classic design and impeccable craftsmanship and offering the perfect integration of charm and elegance in a world-class setting.’
It’s also where one of the world’s most famous performers spent his final hours. Jackson had been renting the house while rehearsing for his comeback tour ‘This Is It’ but died two weeks before he was due to perform at London’s o2 arena.
The property is the Holmby Hills area of LA, bordering onto Beverly Hills and Bel Air with nearby residents having included Hugh Heffner, Marilyn Monroe, Elvis Presley and Walt Disney.
Set in 1.26 acres, the mansion has seven bedrooms, 13 bathrooms and 12 working fireplaces. There’s a heated swimming pool, guest house, wine cellar, art studio, library and music and media room.
The house, which was built in 2002, is owned by Roxanne and Hubert Guez, the CEO of the Ed Hardy clothing brand who bought it in 2004 for $18.5 million. He unsuccessfully tried to sell the property in 2008 when nobody was willing to pay the $38 million asking price.
