The legendary Neverland Ranch in California, once the home of controversial pop star Michael Jackson, could now be yours… if you’ve got a cool 100 million dollars in your bank account. Be aware though, the property no longer features the trappings of celebrity extravagance such as theme park rides and exotic zoo animals.
In fact, the ferris wheel, roller coaster and pirate ship have now been replaced by a meditative zen garden for a more sedate style of entertainment and relaxation. The swimming pool and sports courts do, however, remain.
Jim Bartsch, a local photographer who specialises in architectural photography, took the new photos of Neverland shown here. “It was a once-in-a-lifetime experience,” says Jim on his Instagram page today. “I will be posting photos in the coming days and weeks of this property.”
The 2,700-acre spread, now officially known as the Sycamore Valley Ranch, is being listed by Suzanne Perkins and Harry Kolb of Sotheby’s International Real Estate in Santa Barbara. Anticipating lots of interest from curious sightseers and fans of the deceased Michael Jackson, these posh estate agents are already making one thing crystal clear to everybody. If you want to view the property, but don’t have the $100m to spend, just Beat It.
