Michael Jackson’s former Las Vegas residence, coined the “Thriller Villa,” can be yours for a cool $9.5 million.
The King of Pop lived with his three children in the rented the 1.7 acre estate from 2007 until his unexpected death at his Los Angeles home on June 25, 2009.
The Spanish Mediterranean-style home is broken into several sections including a 24,276 square foot main estate, a 2,983 square foot guest house, 9 car garage and a chapel, which can double as a recording studio.
According to Sotheby’s International Realty, perhaps the most impressive feature is the estate’s two-story 74-seat medieval chapel. The ceiling has a hand painted sky scene complete with a glorious Crown of Thorns Chandelier and traditional red drapes that add the perfect touch to this extraordinary room. Access the second story balcony via a glorious spiral staircase, reminiscent of an old-fashioned theater. The acoustics and sound quality of the room is said to be “pitch perfect.”
As if that’s not impressive enough, there’s a basement—no, not a small cool place to store wine—a serious 8,500 square foot basement that served as a private art gallery and guided Jackson to his vehicle secretly in order to avoid Paparazzi. You’ll also find a private guest suite with full kitchen down below.
Sotheby’s has put together a rather unusual virtual tour through the home set to a dubstep remix of Jackson’s 1982 smash hit, “Beat It.”
With 20 percent down, monthly payments are paltry $45,565. Interested parties can contact Sotheby’s for more details.
