Michael Jackson's House: The King of Pop's Last House is Far Less Popular Than His Music

By on September 28, 2012 in ArticlesCelebrity Homes

Though much has been made of Michael Jackson's eccentricities, especially later in life, there is no denying that he churned out some of the best music to ever hit the airwaves.  In a career that spanned nearly 45 years, the artist often referred to as the "King of Pop", set multiple music records, and inspired legions of fans.  He won thirteen Grammy Awards, 26 American Music Awards, sold over 750 million records around the world, and holds the record for the best-selling album of all time, with "Thriller'.  While his professional life was stellar, his personal life was far from happy.  Financial woes caused him to sell off many of his properties in the 2000s.  In 2008, he began renting a large Holmby Hills mansion for $100,000 per month, while preparing for his upcoming tour.  It would prove to be the last place he lived, as he died in the house, suddenly, in 2009.  The property has since gone on sale.  Needless to say, it has not yet found a new owner.

Michael Jackson's house in Los Angeles is owned by the CEO of Ed Hardy.  The 17,710 square foot mansion, includes seven bedrooms, 13 bathrooms, 12 fireplaces, a spa, a gym, and a pool.  There is also a home theater, a wine room, and an elevator to take you between floors.  Michael Jackson's house is actually fit for a king, and features French chateau-styling with high ceilings, hardwood floors, and lots of marble accents.  The backyard looks like a palace, and the floor-to-ceiling windows in almost every room, lend the entire house a bright, airy feel.  While the home is stunningly gorgeous, the $23.9 million price tag, combined with it being the place where one of pop music's greatest stars died, might make Michael Jackson's house, a very hard sell.
