Elizabeth Taylor's home has been put up for sale.
The Oscar-winning actress -- who passed away from congestive heart failure in March at the age of 79 -- lived in the 1960s ranch-style house in Bel Air, California, for 30 years until her death and it is now on the market for $8.6 million.
According to Mossler Properties -- who are handling the estate of the 'Cleopatra' star -- the "fully gated and secured" luxurious hilltop residence sits on approximately 1.27 acres and has a private driveway, bricked motor court, swimming pool and stunning landscaping.
Inside the property, the main floor comprises of "a large, galley-style country kitchen, powder room, lower master suite, two family bedrooms with garden access, and maid's quarters" while the second-floor master suite offers "treetop views, master bath with spa tub, adjacent dressing room/salon and two smaller bedrooms".
Elizabeth's son Christopher Wilding said of the property: "(The house was) where we all gathered, especially at Thanksgiving and Easter... She never entertained the notion of moving."
