The amusement park rides and wild animals are long gone, but if you’re interested in buying Michael Jackson’s most famous home, it’s a lot more affordable these days. Neverland Ranch, which failed to find a buyer after the King of Pop’s death, is being reintroduced to the market, with a giant price cut and a new name. The property, which has been saddled with the more homogenized moniker “Sycamore Valley Ranch,” carries a $67 million price tag.

That’s a $33 million drop from the original asking price two years ago.
While it no longer has some of its iconic features, Neverland (yeah, we’re gonna keep calling it that — sorry, Coldwell Banker) is still a unique piece of property. Located about 30 minutes from downtown Santa Barbara, California, it spans 2,700 acres and includes a mountain on the grounds that Jackson named after his mother. The estate boasts live oaks that are more than 100 years old and borders the Los Padres National Forest.
There’s also a movie theater that seats 50, a dance studio, a pool, a 5,500-square-foot, four-bedroom guesthouse, as well as a train station and train tracks. (Sadly, you’ll have to supply your own train.)
As for the main house itself, it’s opulent. The French Normandy-style manor was designed by architect Robert Altevers and built in 1982 and measures 12,598 square feet. Among the amenities are five fireplaces, five bedrooms and six full and two half-baths.
