Michael Jackson’s ‘Neverland’ Ranch For Sale … Hits Market With New Name, “Sycamore Valley Ranch”


For just a cool $100 million you to can own Michael Jackson’s former “Neverland” ranch. Well sort of. The 2,700-acre estate in Santa Barbara County, complete with 22 structures, a 22,000 sq ft home and  with two guest houses is no longer called “Neverland” but instead “Sycamore Valley Ranch.” Gone are the animals, the amusement rides and the train. ARE YOU SERIOUS, THE ANIMALS, RIDES AND BUBBLES ARE GONE? How about the train, please tell me it still has the train. Wait, WSJ is reporting the train lives, its still there. But ABC is stating in the article below that the train is gone.


The wanted to change the name of ‘Neverland’ to get away from the stigma associated with the former King of Pop. Rather than “Sycamore,” that was the name of the estate was built in 1981 by real estate developer William Bone … how about some other suggestions, ‘Pedoland,” “Molestalot,” or my personal favorite … are you out of your mind, who the hell would pay $100 million for this place-land.

Michael Jackson’s former California ranch “Neverland” is hitting the market for $100 million.

Now called “Sycamore Valley Ranch,” you won’t find the carnival rides and Bubbles the chimpanzee that the late performer had on the 2,700-acre estate. But there’s still the floral clock that spells “Neverland” by the train station and train tracks, plus a llama at the Los Olivos property in Santa Barbara County.

Sotheby’s and Hilton and Hyland have the listing, The Wall Street Journal first reported.

Suzanne Perkins of Sotheby’s International Realty told ABC News the property is the “most spectacular ranch I’ve had the privilege of seeing” since she sold the $145 million El Cojo ranch in 2007, along the California coastline.

Michael Jackson died on June 25, 2009 at his home in Los Angeles from an overdose. His physician Conrad Murray was found guilty of involuntary manslaughter in 2011.

The WSJ is saying that the listing agents warned they will be doing “extensive prequalification” of potential buyers before showing the property. “Our seller is not encouraging a lot of showings,” Mr. Hyland said. “We’re not going to be giving tours,” Ms. Perkins added. Well if you want to have a tour and see inside the Home, take a look back at the below VIDEO from NBC News in 2009.

Neverland, Michael Jackson’s former home, for sale.

The 2,700-acre ranch in Santa Ynez Valley features such amenities as a train station, six-bedroom house, 50-seat movie theater and a pair of lakes, It has been in limbo since Jackson’s death in 2009.

Jackson originally paid $19.5 million for the oak- and sycamore-studded property in 1988 and rechristened it Neverland after Peter Pan’s island dwelling. He soon added such over-the-top amenities as a zoo and small amusement park, which have since been removed.

The real estate company Colony Capital LLC bailed out Jackson in 2008 after he defaulted on the $24.5 million that he owed on the property.

UPDATE I:  The real estate agent went to the home on Old River Drive in Scott around 5:30 p.m. to show it to a possible cash buyer.

People living near the home are shocked. Some told us they saw Beverly’s car and another vehicle in the driveway last night but thought nothing of it because the home is for sale.

“A tall skinny white man got out of the truck to pull up the one he was showing the house to,” a neighbor said.

Carter said he and Beverly have been married for 35 years and he wants her back home with the family.

Detectives are looking at this as a missing persons case.

While one of the detectives said he believes Beverly was taken from the home, no description on the possible suspect or a vehicle have been released.
