The Beverly Hills, Calif., estate that Michael Jackson rented at the end of his life is on the market, and many of its fancy-pants things will be auctioned on Dec. 18, including tons of fine art, some worth as much as $30K, an armoire estimated at $6K, a bunch of Louis-style antiques, upholstered seating, and, reports AOL Real Estate, the very bed where Jackson died in 2009 under no-longer-sketchy conditions. The 17,000-square-foot French chateau-inspired manse was designed in the early aughts by architect Richard Landry; it has six bedrooms, a wine cellar and tasting room, a movie theater with velvet-clad loveseats, a pool and spa, and a guest house with another bedroom. The home is owned by Ed Hardy CEO Hubert Guez, who tried unsuccessfully to unload the manse after Jackson's death, later blaming its failure to sell on the random woman capitalizing on the fame by peddling celebrity maps outside. At the time, Guez said, "Potential buyers are bothered upon approach by the quite visible and annoying constant illegal stopping and/or parking of cars in front of the home on what otherwise would be a quiet residential street." Consider yourself warned, map-seller Linda Welton. The active listing hasn't hit Redfin yet but Movoto currently has it asking $23.5M.
