The estate of Michael Jackson has bought a house in a gated Calabasas community for the pop star's mother and children for $10.75 million in an off-market deal, The Times has confirmed.
Katherine Jackson had been leasing the Mediterranean-style house, where she lives with the late singer’s children. It's the same neighborhood that reality show sisters Khloe and Kourtney Kardashian recently moved into.
The 12,000-square-foot main home, built in 2007, features a home theater, a study, a loft/game room, a wine room, an elevator, seven bedrooms and 11 bathrooms on two stories.
There's a 600-square-foot guesthouse, a swimming pool with a spa and a putting green, according to the Wall Street Journal, which broke the news of the sale. The transaction has not yet appeared in the public record.
Michael Jackson, who died in 2009 at 50, got his start as a member of the family group the Jackson 5. His album “Thriller” sold record numbers.
Marc and Rory Shevin of Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices were the listing agents. Nichelle Robinson and Barbara Robinson of Hilton & Hyland/Christie’s International Real Estate represented the estate.Copyright © 2015, Los Angeles Times
