The former home of Hollywood legend Elizabeth Taylor is now available for $12 million.
The Beverly Hills manse was offered last summer at $15.9 million, but failed to find a buyer. The 25% price chop might do the trick where sheer novelty and star-bright associations failed.
The two-acre property is set atop a hillside and surrounded by lush landscaping and mature trees. As a result, the one-story property is incredibly private. The residence is designed around a grand courtyard, and boasts spacious living areas ideal for entertaining. The living room is particularly expansive, and features beamed ceilings and a grand fireplace. The kitchen boasts plenty of counter space, a large center island, and stainless steel appliances.
The home is anchored by its location, though, and the windows take in the views as often as possible. The lot surveys a panorama of city skyline and Pacific.
The courtyard landscaping was impressive decades ago, and has lost none of its potent luxuriance over the years, with trees, shrubs and flowers contributing to the lush outdoor living style. A swimming pool with a spa, and a guest apartment fill out the property.
