Michael Jackson’s Neverland Ranch Finally Sold

The property formerly known as Neverland Ranch, home to the late Michael Jackson, has been purchased by Pittsburgh Penguins co-owner Ron Burkle, Burkle’s spokesman confirmed to CNN Saturday.

Spokesman Frank Quintero did not confirm the purchase price, but The Wall Street Journal reported it was $22 million.
Burkle is also the co-founder of Yucaipa Companies, an investment firm.
Neverland Ranch — named after the fictional “Neverland” in the tale of Peter Pan, the boy who could never grow up — was purchased by Jackson in 1987 for $19.5 million.
The 2,700-acre estate once contained 22 structures, including an amusement house and a zoo which housed elephants, a giraffe, orangutans, and Jackson’s chimp Bubbles.
Jackson died in 2009 of what the Los Angeles County Coroner said was “acute propofol intoxication.” His physician, Dr. Conrad Murray, was convicted in 2011 of involuntary manslaughter in connection with Jackson’s death and served less than two years in prison.
In 2014, the property was listed for sale at $100 million. It was reportedly pulled off the market in 2017 after failing to find a buyer following a price drop to $67 million, and went back on the market in 2019 for $31 million.
The property, now known as Sycamore Valley Ranch, was jointly owned by Jackson’s estate and a fund managed by the real estate investment trust Colony Capital.
