13 Things You Didn't Know About Michael Jackson's Neverland Ranch
Michael Jackson's famed (and sometimes infamous) Neverland Ranch just hit the market for US$100 million ($130 million Australian) . The massive property is located in the Santa Barbara, California, area and includes about 22 structures spread out over 2,700 lush acres. The main French country-style house alone is 1115 square metres and includes six bedrooms. Staff quarters and a four-bedroom guest house are located nearby; then, there's the recreational facilities. While Jackson's over-the-top amusement park has been disassembled, a swimming pool, cabana, basketball court, tennis court, and 50-seat movie theatre remain — but good luck trying to see them in person. Co-listing agencies Sotheby's International Reality and Hilton & Hyland have made it clear that this property will be shown to serious, pre-qualified buyers only. While we may not have $130 million cash to fork over for the property, we do have a slew of little-known facts on Jackson's epic hideaway.
