Elizabeth Taylor, the inimitable violet-eyed Empress of Hollywood’s Golden Age, had quite a love affair with real estate.
The 7,000 square foot home, which features two master-bedroom “suites”, a sauna, maid’s quarters, and a lush English garden, has belonged to Taylor for about thirty years.
Taylor’s estate seems to be leaking just a few photos of the estate at a time – perhaps to discourage looky-loos, perhaps just because that’s the glamorous thing to do. The People magazine blurb about the property comes with the caveat “pre-approved buyers only need apply”.
It’s a gorgeous house and we’re happy to see it, but in the end it’s kind of a bummer. Odds are good that the new owner, whoever she is, won’t be filling this house with Oscars, diamonds, and glamour on such an Elizabeth-an scale. We miss you, Liz.
