mAug 5, (THAINDIAN NEWS) The lavish California mansion in Staples Center in downtown Los Angeles where Michael Jackson died last year is up for sale for a whooping $28.9 million. The mansion where “King of Pop” died was rented by the owner for $300,000 after his death. However, the real estate agents reported to the media that the property was reportedly planned to be turned into a museum after his death but the authorization was not granted by the local officials.

The mansion was built in the year 2002 and the grand house has a theater, a beautiful wine cellar with a tasting room, an art studio, a gym with a spa and also an elevator. The beautiful mansion has seven bedrooms, 13 bathrooms and 12 fireplaces. The mansion sits on about 1.25 acres of land with grated grounds which also include swimming pool. Hubert Guez, the CEO of Ed Hardy clothing brand and the owner of the property wanted to sell the property before but he could not find any potential buyers for it. Hence he rented the mansion to Michael Jackson in 2009 where the singer rehearsed for his “This Is It” tour.

A reputed media source informed that the mansion was previously listed in 2008 for $38 million, however, Hubert Guez, the CEO of Ed Hardy company has reduced the sale prize to attract more buyers. This is the mansion where Michael Jackson died on June 25, 2009 after a cardiac arrest. The mansion is situated in Holmby Hills and the French chateau-style mansion stands tall over an area of 1,600 square feet and looks elegant with its wonderful decorations and peaceful surroundings. It has been reported that the buyers will have to go through an “extensive pre-qualifying check” to have a look at the home before buying it.
