Elizabeth Taylor's Bel-Air Estate Goes On the Market
The estate of Elizabeth Taylor is asking $8.6 million for her home in Los Angeles's Bel-Air neighborhood.
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," Christopher Wilding, one of her sons, said in a statement. "She never entertained the notion of moving." The roughly 7,000-square-foot 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 Ms. Taylor's signature violet.
The 1.2-acre property, once owned by Nancy Sinatra Sr., is guard-gated and has a pool. There's a terraced English garden, a hothouse for orchids and a koi pond with a waterfall.

New house is straight out of the Old World A Santa Monica residence completed in 2008 was inspired by historic homes in Belgium.

Downsizing in Los Angeles: From Mansion to $47 Million Condo
David Mossler, the real estate agent who sold The Century’s first penthouse last December, for $15 million, said the cachet of Mr. Stern was a big draw for his clients, a couple he refused to identify to protect their privacy. They had been looking for a second home in Los Angeles for two years but had not found the looks, privacy or views they wanted.
When he mentioned a condo, Mr. Mossler said, “I think they thought I was crazy.”
“I told them about the high quality of the building and the security and the other amenities,” he said. “The light went on in their heads. They said, ‘It’s like a great hotel suite.
Luxury Lifestyle Interview: David Mossler, Architectural Legend
Many people have stereotypical preconceptions of estate agents. Realtors, as a general rule, don’t change themselves to suit the type of property they are trying to sell you. This is where the rules are re-written. Mossler, Deasy & Doe have, for twenty-two years, built up a reputation as an estate agency who will give you more than just a house. Look through their entire archive and not one of the houses could be described as “boring”. Architecture is a form of art, and architecturally special houses are as timelessly attractive as anything hanging in Le Louvre. Wallace Neff, Frank Lloyd-Wright and Richard Neutra are just a tiny sample of the many highly-prized architects and highly-prized houses that have graced the gloss of Mossler, Deasy & Doe. David Mossler, swapping a career as an agent in the entertainment sector, founded the company in 1983 in Los Angeles, famously a portal for residences that ooze of design integrity. Mike Deasy and Crosby Doe completed LA’s most unique real estate firm. I caught up with this architectural wizard to find out just how he has built up this unique reputation. View Article

The Art of Marketing Architecture In the hands of David Mossler, Michael Deasy, and Crosby Doe, the marketing of exceptional architectural properties has become a powerful tool. Since joining forces in the early 1980s, the partners of the Beverly Hills real estate company have excelled at running ads that marry provocative copy with Julius Shulman’s iconic architectural photography. “Our listings from the last 20 years are a compendium of every great architect who has practiced in L.A.,” says Deasy. The partners cater to connoisseurs of art and architecture, but they also take great pride in knowing that they have been instrumental in educating the public about historic preservation and restoration, especially in Southern California, with its strong diversity of buildings and styles and equally strong reputation for tearing down anything over 20 years old. “We try to bring in the correct buyer for a property, someone who understands and will restore it,” says Deasy. “Sellers always tell us that money isn’t as important as preserving the asset.”
Each partner brings a distinct sensibility. Mossler is the traditionalist who prefers the work of Paul Williams and Craig Ellwood. Crosby Doe gravitates to Richard Neutra and Harwell Hamilton Harris. Deasy favors Irving Gill and Rudolph Schindler. “Our properties are unique,” says Mossler. “Fine architecture, like fine wine, improves with age, and its resale price should carry a premium.”
