Michael Jackson’s Neverland Valley Ranch – 5225 Figueroa Mountain Road, Los Olivos, CA

Michael Jackson's Neverland Valley Ranch - 5225 Figueroa Mountain Road, Los Olivos, CA

Summary

Michael Jackson purchased the sprawling 2,675-acre Sycamore Valley Ranch property in the Santa Ynez Valley, 2 ½ hours north of Los Angeles from developer William Bone, complete with a fully furnished 13,000 sq. ft. main house and multiple outbuildings, spectacular gardens, and a four-acre lake in 1988.

Making it entirely his own, Michael renamed the property Neverland and created a magical fantasy setting for his home, complete with his own theatre, zoo, a private amusement park, fairgrounds, two railways with a steam locomotive and a grand main station.

Jackson lived in the home as his exclusive private residence from 1988 until 2003 when he decided not to return to the property following a police search, saying that he no longer considered the ranch a home. In 2006, the facilities were closed and most of the staff was dismissed. A spokesman for Neverland at the time stated that this reflected the fact that Michael Jackson no longer lived there.

The former Neverland Valley Ranch is currently part owned by the Michael Jackson Estate after his tragic death in 2009 and an affiliate of Colony Capital, an investment company run by billionaire Tom Barrack.

    To see this beautiful place of Michael Jackson, called Neverland makes me sad. I was there in March, 2012 and of course I couldn´t see the golden gate and all those amazing places inside, but I could stand there at the little gate looking at the valley and the mountains. I spoke with one securirty guard, a very humble man and i lost my heart over there. I love this place and I hope and pray that all the beauty, the flowers and everything would awaken with a new owner who will still let live Michael Jacksons legacy. I will love Michael Jackson forever more.
    With love, eva maria uhl from Germany.

    I see you found the floor plans on my blog Enola Lee’s Neverland.
    I hope you appreciate them, because I spent two weeks drawing them from scratch based on tiny copies in Architectural Digest.

      Yes we did, Enola, and we appreciate the attention to detail you put into illustrating those floor plans of Neverland Valley Ranch, along with the time you put into that work!

    Neverland — Heaven on Earth!

  • Billy

    What a wonderful presentation of Neverland. Such a beautiful place, all from the imagination of the man himself!

  • Rebbie Pearson

    Nothing like it. I wish I could have gone to Neverland when I was a child!

  • Beverly Gramstad

    i will be there on June 26th…will the grounds be open for fans to visit?? I hope it is restored and one day opened for fans to visit the grounds. I had no idea how large the property was!! WOW!! Now I know why Michael loved it so much….

      Unfortunately for Michael Jacksons fans, no, Neverland Valley Ranch is not open for public visitation.

    I just want to say what a gorgeous place Neverland was and still is. It is sad Michael is no longer there for sure, but the beauty of the property itself is simply breathtaking. I would love to just pick up a good book and go and sit in one of the beautiful spots and read for hours. Listening to the birds chirp and the water fountain running all the while taking in wonderful beauty. Although I have seen photos of Neverland before, these photos seem to be much sharper and much more beautiful than the others. I appreciate all that was done to put this together, (ie) photos and drawing of the floor plan. Thank you so much again for all the wonderful photos and floor plan. Much love to you and Michael!!

    Neverland is such a magical place. My husband and I vacation in Los Olivos and Pismo Beach about six times a year and we always stop at Neverland. It is such a tranquil place where you can feel Michael’s spirit.

    Truly a spectacular property, Michael had great taste in choosing to live in such a beautiful area. It’s bizarre seeing all the RVs and cars that line the road adjacent to the property… he really had to buy this size of a property to try and have a life behind the gates away from the public.

  • Cris Angelescu

    Please save Neverland !!!! fans have to visit!! thanx for the beautiful pics!

  • Sinthujah Navaratnam

    Wow, what a beautiful creation this is. Would definitely visit if Neverland was open for fans to visit… Thank you so much for sharing these wonderful pictures and hope very much that it will be open for fans and that it’ll be kept the way Michael kept it: with a lot of nature and animals….etc. thanks again for sharing, very much appreciated:)
