Celebrity Homes: Liz Taylor’s place in the sun for sale at $8.6 M

The longtime Bel-Air home of actress Elizabeth Taylor has come on the market at $8.6 million.

Owned by Taylor since 1981, the 1960s ranch house with a brick motor court sits on 1.27 acres. The 7,000-square-foot home features a wood-beam ceiling and wood-burning fireplace in the living room, which like the sitting room and the dining room, can access the pool terrace.

A galley-style kitchen, powder room, a master suite, two other bedrooms, maid’s quarters, an office and a bathroom with sauna complete the downstairs. A second master suite is upstairs, its walls upholstered in her signature colour, violet.

The grounds include the pool with spa, terraced gardens, trails and a koi pond with waterfall. A hands-on gardener, Taylor had plants blooming year-round.

“She loved the eagle’s nest quality of her bedroom, surrounded by nature and the contrast of the English flowers,� her son Christopher Wilding said in a press release.

Taylor, who died in March at the age of 79, won Academy Awards for her performances in Butterfield 8 (1960) and Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf? (1966). Memorable roles in such classic films as National Velvet (1944), A Place in the Sun (1951), Giant (1956) and Cat on a Hot Tin Roof (1958) are partly why she is ranked seventh on the American Film Institute’s greatest screen legends list.

David Mossler of Teles Properties, Beverly Hills, is the listing agent.
