However, the 12,598 square foot French-Normandy style residence located in Los Olivos, California has been on the market for three years, despite a 33% price cut from its original$100 million listing price by Sotheby’s International Realty and Hilton & Hyland.
Jackson, who bought the property for $19.5 million in 1987, defaulted on a loan after financial hardships and entered Neverland into an ownership agreement with private investment firm Colony Capital in 2008 for $23 million, according to ABC News.
After millions of dollars in renovations, the 2,700 acre ranch boasts a main residence with five bedrooms and eight bathrooms, two guesthouses, a four-acre lake, a 50-seat movie theatre, a tennis court, a 14-ft lagoon-style pool, a dance studio, barns, and separate staff facilities.
