Details continue to emerge about the Calabasas home the estate of Michael Jackson bought for his mother and children. The seller in the $10.75 million off-market deal has been identified as Kassabian Design Build, which constructed the Tuscan-style home on spec.

The style of the home was inspired by a trip that designer Diko Kassabian took to Tuscany, Italy.

The 12,670 square feet of living space includes massive dual-stairway entry, a pub, three fireplaces, a home theater, a sauna, a library, an elevator and eight en suite bedrooms. The oversized kitchen has a mosaic-tile wall behind the commercial range and a large island.

There are also extensive covered patios, a 633-square-foot guesthouse, a swimming pool with a spa and a putting green. The 1,548-square-foot garage can accommodate five cars.


Michael Jackson, who died in 2009 at 50, got his start as a member of the family group the Jackson 5. His album “Thriller” had record sales.

Katherine Jackson leased the nearly one-acre property, where she lives with the late singer’s children, for $26,000 after the pop star’s death.

The gated neighborhood is popular with celebrities. Recent home buyers include reality show personalities Kourtney Kardashian and Khloe Kardashian, who purchased her house from Justin Bieber.

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.
