Michael Jackson’s last home for sale
Now you can live where Michael Jackson died.
The pop icon’s last residence, a French chateau-style estate he was leasing in Holmby Hills while rehearsing for a series of concerts last year, has come on the market at $28,995,000.
Jackson had been paying $100,000 a month for the 17,171-square-foot mansion at the time of his death on June 25, 2009. Somber fans gathered outside the gates of the home on the normally quiet street, creating makeshift memorials, as the news spread.
The home last sold in 2004 for $18.5 million. It was put on the market in 2008 for $38 million but then went to lease.
The Richard Landry-designed estate, built in 2002, has a theater, a wine cellar and tasting room, an art studio, an elevator and a gym with a spa. The guesthouse has stained-glass doors leading to a swimming pool and gardens on the 1.26 acres of grounds.
There are seven bedrooms, 13 bathrooms and 12 fireplaces.
Public records show the owners as Roxanne Guez and her husband, Hubert, who is the chief executive of clothing manufacturer Ed Hardy.
Jerry Jolton of Coldwell Banker’s Beverly Hills South office, who has the listing, declined to comment, citing a confidentiality agreement.
