The Elizabeth Taylor Estate
SOLD | Asking $8.6 million
The longtime Bel-Air residence of screen legend Elizabeth Taylor, this meticulously maintained 1960s ranch house sits on approx. 1.27 acres with treetop views across Los Angeles.
A private driveway leads past a guard gate to an expansive brick-lined motor court. The main floor of the approx. 7,000-square-foot home features a spacious living room with a wood-beam ceiling and wood-burning fireplace that opens to a sitting room and dining room, all with direct access to the outdoor pool terrace. Also on the main floor is a large, galley-style country kitchen, powder room, lower master suite, 2 family bedrooms with garden access, and maid’s quarters. A former screening room is now used as an office and an adjoining powder room has a sauna and shower for the pool. Upstairs is a second master suite with treetop views, master bath with spa tub, adjacent dressing room/salon and two smaller bedrooms.
Outside the main living area is a spectacular pool and spa inlaid with iridescent mosaic tile. Immaculately terraced gardens include a lawn with flowerbeds, arbor, hothouse for orchids and koi pond with waterfall. Trails around the perimeter of the property lead to a secret bamboo “jungle” and to the upper rose gardens. Fully gated and secured. Surrounded by mature foliage for complete privacy.
