Michael Jacksons "Thriller Villa" Is Up For Sales
2710 Palomino Lane Las Vegas, Nevada, 89107 United States
Synergy Sotheby's International Realty presents Thriller Villa.
Behind the oversized gated entrance of a walled 1.7-acre compound was where the King of Pop and his three children quietly lived from 2007 until his unexpected death at his Los Angeles home on June 25, 2009.
The estate's uniqueness goes beyond its famous tenant. The design and amenities of the 24,276-square-foot custom estate and 2983 square foot guest house at 2710 Palomino Lane are attributed to its prior owner, theater developer Horst Schmidt. Now ornate interior elements reflect a massive redesign by Thriller Villa's current owner.
Approach through an oversized iron gate. The cobblestone-paved circular driveway encloses a spectacular water fountain. A magnificent bell tower instantly captures guest's attention. The main entrance into the Spanish Mediterranean-style estate opens to reveal the beautiful sunlit foyer with custom wood ceiling design and a hand painted fireplace. Views of the inner courtyard can be seen through large arched windows and another magnificent iron door.
The heart of the home is the spectacular salon, said to be Michael's favorite room, featuring a massive stone fireplace, wood floors, exposed wood beams, a Murano glass chandelier, rich, warm tones and plenty of cozy seating areas to comfortably host large galas and formal events. The salon, foyer and a bar area offer access to the courtyard, which features plenty of outdoor entertaining space, a fountain and a statue. A small stable and paddock are situated along the back property line.
Perhaps the most impressive feature is the estate's two-story 74-seat Medieval Chapel. The ceiling has a hand painted sky scene complete with a glorious Crown of Thorns Chandelier and traditional red drapes that add the perfect touch to this extraordinary room. Access the second story balcony via a glorious spiral staircase, reminiscent of an old-fashioned theater. The acoustics and sound quality of the room is said to be "pitch perfect."
The entire top level is home to the master retreat, complete with a full wet bar and lounge nestled around a fireplace. The main master room has the original mirrors that Jackson once used to rehearse his infamous choreography. The stone bathroom features a huge shower and three sinks with a vanity.
An 8500 square foot basement that served as a private art gallery and guided Michael Jackson to his vehicle secretly in order to avoid Paparazzi plus a private guest suite with full kitchen.
Set on 1.7 acres, the estate sits on perfectly manicured grounds with paths and trails leading throughout the property along with ample equestrian land.
Truly an unbeatable lifestyle.
