There’s a hot new listing in the city that never sleeps. And it was once home to music royalty.
The Las Vegas mansion that Michael Jackson used to rent (for a rather large monthly fee) is up for sale.
While his main residence was at Neverland Ranch, Michael Jackson rented this Las Vegas home in 2006, paying $50,000/month for the 8-bedroom abode.
The Thriller hitmaker lived here for almost a year.
Located seven miles from the infamous Las Vegas Strip, the 17,000 square-foot home sits on a sprawling one-acre lot.
And it certainly was fit for the King.
Inside, a grand entry leads into a Roman-style interior with high ceilings and indoor fountain. The home has a striking curved staircase and several ultra-luxurious family rooms with built-in wine shelves.
With 8 bedrooms and 9 bathrooms, the home also features a 2-way fireplace, custom chandeliers, a large home theater, two kitchens, and an office wing with two private executive offices.
Some of the furniture in the home dates back to Michael Jackson’s stay here, and several pieces were used by the King himself, including a dining table and a sofa.
And did we mention there’s a custom wet bar with spiral staircase leading to an orchestra loft overlooking the beautiful grand ballroom with a baby grand piano?
The Beat It singer also enjoyed using the luxurious outdoor amenities with his three children — daughter Paris, now 23, and sons Prince, now 25, and Blanket, now 20.
To beat the heat, the posh property offers a large outdoor pool, spa, tennis court, and a covered outdoor kitchen. And the rooftop deck offers stunning views of the Las Vegas landscapes.
The elegant property is listed for sale asking $9.5 million. Zar Zanganeh of The Agency — who also represented Jackson in 2006 — holds the listing.
And while the $9.5 million listing price might seem hefty, it’s worth noting that MJ’s longtime home, known as Neverland Ranch, was once looking to fetch $100 million.
But that didn’t pan out and, after several price cuts, it finally found a new owner in 2021 when billionaire Ron Burkle (a one-time collaborator of the late pop star) bought it for $22 million.
