In late January, many, including us, have written about the decision of Zsa Zsa Gabor and her husband Prince Frederic Von Anhalt to sell their Bel Air Mansion for $28 million. Then, Prince said that he wanted to sell the Bel Air home for $28 million in order to cover the costs of Gabor’s medical bills. In the meantime, he apparently changed his mind when it comes to price, and now a 6,393-square foot Hollywood Regency-style house on about one acre of land is on sale for $15 million.
The home is described as having commanding views of downtown Los Angeles, Santa Monica, the ocean and Catalina Island and is located on the exclusive Bel Air Road. The estate, which boasts four bedrooms and five bathrooms is decorated with unique accents including several horse head sculptures featured on tables throughout the home. The property also feature living quarters for the maids, a heated pool and an enclosed patio.
If believe the gossip, Francesca Hilton, Zsa Zsa’s daughter, who is still banned by Von Anhalt from seeing her seriously ill mother, makes this comment: My mother is not aware that Von Anhalt is selling her house. I am not aware if Von Anhalt has the legal right to put my mother’s house up for sale as he claims. I am sure the Realtor has done his research (due diligence) concerning his legal right to sell my mother’s house. Finally, my mother has told me time and time again that she would hate to live in a condominium.
Gabor has claimed that the house was built for the late aviator and industrialist Howard Hughes in the 1950′s and serving as Elvis Presley’s residence for nearly four years while filming movies in Los Angeles. Hollywood legend purchased Bel Air mansion in the 1970s.
