It has been on and off the market for years. And now the mansion Michael Jackson was renting for $100,000-a-month when he died has been put up for sale once again. The house, which has seven bedrooms, 13 bathrooms and a seven-car garage all sprawled over 17,200 square feet comes with an asking price of $23.9million.
It was listed for a higher price of $29million when it was put on the market in August 2010. However it is understood to have remained empty since the superstar’s death in June 2009. Despite this it may be lived in soon as it has reported by TMZ that a ‘major celebrity’ is due to look around the property tomorrow.
And the website also alleges that the realtor will only show the property to people who are pre-qualified, which means it has been verified that they have enough money to purchase the pricey home. As well as the expansive grounds and spacious rooms, the mansion boasts a movie theatre and swimming pool.
The 50-year-old singer died of a Propofol overdose in June 2009 in the house in Holmby Hills, which is in upmarket Bel Air, Los Angeles.
The asking price for the house, which is owned by Ed Hardy CEO Hubert Guez, has been slashed several times
It was put up for sale back in 2008 for a whopping $38million.
After Guez initially tried to rent the property for $300,000 a month, and failed, he decided to put the house up for sale at the reduced price to offload it.
Jackson had rented the house from Guez while he rehearsed for ‘This is It’ at the Staples Centre in downtown Los Angeles.
He had been living there with his three children, Prince Michael, 13, Paris, 12, and Blanket, eight.
The superstar’s final concert tour which he referred to as his ‘final curtain call’ and was due to start at London’s O2 arena only weeks after the singer died.
On June 25th 2009 paramedics were called to the house on Carolwood Drive after Michael had been found in bed and unresponsive.
He was taken to the UCLA medical centre where attempts to resuscitate him failed and he was pronounced dead.
