THE estate of Elizabeth Taylor was asking $8.6 million for her home in Los Angeles’ Bel-Air neighbourhood, The Wall Street Journal reports.


The Hollywood star bought the ranch house in 1981 and lived there until her death in March at the age of 79.

The home was “where we all gathered, especially at Thanksgiving and Easter,” according to one of her sons, Christopher Wilding. “She never entertained the notion of moving.”

The roughly 650sq m home has five bedrooms, a living room with a beamed ceiling and fireplace and an office that was formerly a screening room. The walls of the master bedroom are upholstered in Taylor’s signature violet.

The 1.2-acre property, once owned by Nancy Sinatra Sr., is guard-gated and has a pool. There is also a terraced English garden, a hothouse for orchids and a koi pond with a waterfall.
