The longtime Bel-Air residence of screen legend Elizabeth Taylor is available for the first time in 30 years.

Owned by the actress since 1981, this meticulously maintained 1960s ranch house sits on approx. 1.27 acres with treetop views across Los Angeles.

A private driveway leads past a guard gate to an expansive brick-lined motor court. The main floor of the approx. 7,000-square-foot home features a spacious living room with a wood-beam ceiling and wood-burning fireplace that opens to a sitting room and dining room, all with direct access to the outdoor pool terrace. Also on the main floor is a large, galley-style country kitchen, powder room, lower master suite, 2 family bedrooms with garden access, and maid’s quarters. A former screening room is now used as an office and an adjoining powder room has a sauna and shower for the pool.
Upstairs is a second master suite with treetop views, master bath with spa tub, adjacent dressing room/salon and two smaller bedrooms.

Outside the main living area is a spectacular pool and spa inlaid with iridescent mosaic tile. Immaculately terraced gardens include a lawn with flowerbeds, arbor, hothouse for orchids and koi pond with waterfall. Trails around the perimeter of the property lead to a secret bamboo “jungle” and to the upper rose gardens.

Fully gated and secured. Surrounded by mature foliage for complete privacy.
