Elizabeth Taylor’s Beverly Hills Retreat Lists for $15.9 Million
The Hollywood star resided here in the 1950s with then-husband Michael Wilding
Boasting extraordinary views of Los Angeles as well maximum privacy, the gated Beverly Hills estate provided refuge for the couple during their marriage in the 1950s. (A divorced Taylor unloaded the posh pad in 1957.)
Set on two manicured acres, the ranch-style residence is available for the first time since 1997, when the current owners acquired it for $2 million. They soon enlisted architect Budd Holden to oversee a major expansion, bringing the total to 7,760 square feet. The sumptuous property now features a library, an art studio, a fitness room, a wet bar, a sauna, four fireplaces, plus a three-car garage. But best of all might be outside, where a swimming pool boasts postcard-perfect vistas that stretch all the way to the Pacific.
