If you can’t quite afford Michael Jackson’s $100 million Neverland Ranch, his $9.5 million mega-mansion in Las Vegas, which just hit the market, might be a nice consolation.
Nicknamed “Thriller Villa” after the pop star’s famous song, Jackson lived here with his three children from 2007 until his death in 2009. The 24,276-square-foot estate is set on 1.7 acres and has seven bedrooms and twelve bathrooms. Its design is expectedly unusual, and the home comes with a guest house, a bell tower, an interior courtyard, a salon (Michael’s favorite room) with a stone fireplace and a Murano glass chandelier, a 74-seat Medieval Chapel with “pitch-perfect acoustics,” a master bedroom that still has the original mirrors Jackson used to practice dancing in front of, and an enormous basement with an art gallery/escape route for Jackson when he was fleeing the paparazzi. There’s also space for horse riding because of course there is.
Kristen Routh Silberman of Sotheby’s International Realty has the listing.
