A Las Vegas mansion where Michael Jackson once lived is now on the market. The 1-acre estate, which is located at 2785 S Monte Cristo Way, Las Vegas, NV 89117 seven miles from the Las Vegas strip, is on sale for $9.5 million. The late King of Pop rented the home for $50,000 a month in 2006 after returning from the Middle East and Ireland and lived there for about a year.
With the home enclosed in an 8-10-foot wall, Jackson was said to be a fan of the privacy the estate provided, per a statement from The Agency shared with PEOPLE. After purchasing the home in 2010 for $3.1 million, current owners Dong Xue and his wife Jeanette Zhou upgraded the property with a balcony in the 2,500-foot primary suite, bringing the space from 16,000 square feet to 17,000.
