LAS VEGAS, NV – A lavish Las Vegas mansion that was once rented as a home for a whopping $50,000 a month 15 years ago by the late and controversial “King of Pop” Michael Jackson has been listed for sale on the market.
The 17,461-square-foot Las Vegas estate – surrounded by a 10-foot-high wall – is located in the western Las Vegas Valley, and currently has an asking price of $9.5 million.
Luxury real estate brokerage The Agency announced Friday that a 17,461-square-foot mansion in western Las Vegas, home to the King of Pop 15 years ago, is on the market for $9.5 million. Sellers Dong Xue and his wife Jeanette Zhou – both big fans of Jackson – bought the home in 2010 for $3.1 million.
The mansion – which Jackson rented for a year in 2006 after spending time in the Middle East and Ireland – is located on an acre of land 15 minutes from The Las Vegas Strip at 2785 South Monte Cristo Way. It features eight bedrooms, nine bathrooms, and a Roman-style interior, an indoor fountain, custom chandeliers, a home theater, a security room, marble flooring and an orchestra loft overlooking a grand ballroom.
Jackson – whose sisters and parents lived in the Southern Nevada region at the time he rented the home – had faced allegations of sexual abuse for a number of years, and some have speculated that he had rented the compound in order to have privacy from paparazzi, which are rare in Las Vegas.
Some of Jackson’s personal furniture – including a dining table and a sofa – remained in the house when Xue and Zhou purchased it; the couple, previously California residents, had been using the mansion as their primary residence for over ten years.
The property was listed on the market Thursday, March 3.
