The estate that the King of Pop, Michael Jackson, rented at the end of his life is on the market and a slew of his (very fancy) possessions will be auctioned on December 18.
The $23.5 million mansion is 17,000 square feet and modeled after a French chateau. It has six bedrooms, thirteen baths, an elevator, a movie theatre with velvet loveseats, a pool and spa, and a wine cellar and tasting room. You know, the usual Beverly Hills stuff.
Things that will be auctioned off in December include art, a $6,000 armoire and the bed that Jackson passed away in (how morbid is that??).
The home is owned by Ed Hardy CEO, Hubert Guez, who tried to sell it following Jackson’s death. One problem is the house has become a bit of a tourist destination and people frequently stop their cars to take photos on what should be a normal residential street.
The mansion is currently listed on Movoto, the American home listing service. However, any mention of the home’s lurid history is conspicuously absent from the listing’s description. We guess the fact that the world’s most famous pop star passed away in the home isn’t significant in the grand scheme of things. Maybe it’s just a Beverly Hills thing…
Here’s a few more photos of the outrageously expensive abode:
