Michael’s Final Home For Sale
Michael’s last residence, a French chateau in Holmby Hills, is back on the market at $23.9 million — $400,000 above what it was listed for last summer.
Michael had been leasing the 17,171 square-foot mansion for $100,000 a month when he died there in 2009.
The property was purchased in 2004 by Hardy chief executive Hubert Guez and his wife, Roxanne, for $18.5 million and had been priced as high as $38 million in 2008.
The Richard Landry designed estate, built in 2002, has a theatre for screenings, a wine cellar and tasting room, an elevator, an art studio and a gym with a spa. The guesthouse has stained-glass doors leading to the pool and gardens. There are eleven fireplaces, seven bedrooms and thirteen bathrooms. The 1.25 acres of gated grounds include a swimming pool.
Mauricio Umansky of the Agency in Beverly Hills is the listing agent, according to the Multiple Listing Service
