The home where Michael Jackson breathed his last breath has hit the Beverly Hills real estate market, which means it’s up for grabs if you have the money. Located at 100 N. Carolwood Drive in Los Angeles, California, the King of Pop’s Holmby Hills mansion can be yours for a whopping $23.9 million.
The 17,171 square-foot mansion features seven bedrooms and 13 bathrooms, along with a requisite movie theater and gym. The home also features a wine cellar with a tasting room, 14 fireplaces, an elevator, and a large swimming pool. One of the first people to have toured the home was rumored to be pop star Robbie Williams; however he did not purchase the home.
Built in 2002, the French Chateau-style manor was designed by Hubert Guez, CEO of Hardy Designs. When the home was finally completed, it was set to go on the market for $38 million; that’s when Jackson saw the property. According to the listing broker at the time, Mauricio Umansky, Jackson fell in love with the master bedroom and he “loved the grounds.” He rented the place for an estimated $100,000 a month, and lived there from December 2008 until his death in June 2009.
While some people believe that marketing the place where Jackson died could be difficult, others such as Umansky say it does not take away from the value of the home. Umansky said, “And I personally think there’s some great energy in the house and I see it as a major positive.”
Jackson passed away of a drug overdose on June 25, 2009, with his personal physician, Conrad Murray, by his side. Murray was convicted of involuntary manslaughter.
