The California manse that was once the home of the late, great Michael Jackson is now available for sale. The price tag for the property once known as “Neverland Ranch”? $100 million.
A report from the Wall St. Journal has the details of the property, which is now known as “Sycamore Valley Ranch.”
According to the WSJ report, the amusement park rides that once graced the property’s grounds are now gone, as are the monkeys and the elephant, but many of the property’s unique features still stand.
From the WSJ report:
The iconic floral clock, which spells out “Neverland,” is still there, and so is the building that once housed the “Neverland Valley Fire Department,” although it’s no longer staffed by full-time firefighters. But the railroad tracks and train station created at Mr. Jackson’s behest are still there.
In exchange for that $100 million price tag, a prospective buyer would get 2,700 acres replete with 22 buildings.
Again from the WSJ:
The Normandy-style main house, which sits between the property’s two lakes, measures about 12,000 square feet, with six bedrooms plus an attached staff quarters. There’s a four-bedroom guesthouse near the main home and a two-bedroom guesthouse a little farther away. There’s also a swimming pool with a cabana, a barbecue area, basketball court and a tennis court. A 50-seat movie theater has a private viewing balcony, and a stage includes trap doors for magic shows.
The listing agents say that despite expected curiosity from Jackson’s fans, any potential buyer will have to go through “extensive prequalification” before seeing the property.
