Hayvenhurst. Michael Jackson First Home

Hayvenhurst. Michael Jackson First Home
Isabel del Rio

Hayvenhurst is placed in Encino, Los Angeles. Michael Jackson lived there from 13 to 30. Afterwards, he moved to Neverland but in Hayvenhurst, he designed his first idea about his ideal home.

He bought the property for his mother to his father in the early 80s. The house imitated the Tudor style but of course, Michael changed its serious design, building a Disney castle with fairytale turrets, towers with clocks and toy store fronts. ‘Follow your dreams’ and ‘Touch the stars’ are the main mottos.

In Hayvenhurst, The King of Pop dreamed for the first time. Candy stores, colored bulbs and a mini zoo with giraffes, llamas, snakes and the legendary Bubbles, his pet chimpanzee.

Katherine, Michael mother, has been taking care of everything all these years, because her son loved this house and the garden: koi ponds, fountains and immaculate lawn, with perfect beds of petunias and other flowers.

The interior is still full of photos and posters of Michael Jackson and his brothers and sisters: Janet, Randy, La Toya, Rebbie, Jermaine, Marlon and Tito. Also, photos of different celebrities who Michael met: Elizabeth Taylor, Sophia Loren, Stallone, the Beatles or Cary Grant.

There are always fans hanging around the house. Today, Michael anniversary, more.

We miss you, Michael. R.I.P.

If you like Michael Jackson and you have the opportunity, visit this place. It’s worth!

Have a nice day, Yareah friends. Art is everywhere and up to you!

**The King of Pop was born on August 29 1958 in Gary, Indiana, and industrial town near Chicago. He was the eighth of ten children in an African-American working-class family who lived in a 3-room house. Quickly, the fate would change. In fact, Michael Jackson and his brothers were famous very soon. He was a child prodigy and paid the consequences of not having childhood: a veteran being a teenager.

Now a video with photos of Hayvenhurst. Enjoy it!
