Some homes have skeletons in the closet.

This one? It hawks a superstar's death in a bedroom.

The Beverly Hills mansion where Michael Jackson died from a lethal dose of propofol in 2009 is back on the market.

And if your macabre appetites are particularly voracious, then by all means: Please step inside for one thriller of a tour...

"McMansion" doesn't even begin to describe the grandly ostentatious home, which sits on a massive 17,000-square-foot chateau-style property.

It boasts seven bedrooms and 13 bathrooms, with an elevator to zip you where you want to go.

Oh my, did you happen to get a little lost there? Must be because you took a wrong turn while passing the theater, the spa, the gym and the wine cellar, which has its own tasting room.

Feeling chilly? Pick a fireplace—there are 14 of them.

Feeling hot? Then won't you take a dip in the pool? You can practice your Olympic laps there.

Oh, we almost forgot: the asking price. The digs will set you back a cool $23.9 million.

Jackson lived in the house for seven months up until his death in June 2009 and reportedly shelled out $100,000 a month for rent.

In a particularly Hollywood twist, the listing agent for the home is Mauricio Umansky, hubby of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills' Kyle Richards, and the couple was friends with the pop star.

"I knew him, and my wife has been friends with Michael Jackson since she was 8 to 10 years old," Umansky tells real-estate website Zillow. "And I personally think there's some great energy in the house, and I see it as a major positive. I'm excited to be selling it."

Glad to see someone's putting a positive spin on the place's morbid pedigree. After all, this isn't the first time that property and memorabilia connected with the King of Pop's death has hit the market.

Last year, the pop star's belongings were auctioned off. The bed on which Jackson died was briefly put up for auction, only to be yanked after Jackson's estate balked.

Jackson died on June 25 after suffering a cardiac arrest in the mansion's bedroom. The singer's personal physician, Conrad Murray, was found guilty in November of involuntary manslaughter after administering a lethal dose of the surgical anesthetic propofol to Jackson.

He was sentenced to four years in prison but is expected to serve less than two years due to overcrowding in the Los Angeles County Jail.
