The ranch-style estate once owned by Hollywood icon Elizabeth Taylor is now on the market for $15.9 million.
Inside Edition was given a tour of the Los Angeles estate. The screen icon bought the two-acre property in 1954 when she was just 22 years old. The home was built a year earlier, and Taylor and her family were the first to live in the palatial estate.
At the time, she was married to British actor Michael Wilding — her second of seven husbands — and they raised two children there.
Wilding was 20 years older than Taylor. The couple divorced in 1957, and that same year, she married producer Mike Todd.
“I can only imagine Elizabeth Taylor entertaining in this beautiful living room,” realtor Joyce Rey of Coldwell Banker Global Luxury told Inside Edition.
Rey says the actress, known for her love of grand entrances, would greet guests in her home, by emerging from behind a wall that once moved like what one would see on a soundstage.
The master bedroom features sweeping views of the canyon and Los Angeles skyline.
There is even a panoramic pool in the backyard, and the property is built around a lush courtyard.
“It has a wonderful feeling with the palm trees and the fountain,” Rey says of the courtyard.
The home was said to be Taylor’s favorite and a private retreat right in the middle of Beverly Hills.
