Zsa Zsa Gabor's longtime Bel-Air estate has come on the market at $15 million.
Gabor's ninth husband, Frédéric Prinz von Anhalt, had announced in January that the couple hoped to sell the house for $28 million. More recently, he expressed a desire to downsize to a modern building with security for him and his wife, 94, who has been in and out of the hospital for hip replacement, leg amputation and pneumonia.
The French Regency-style mansion sits on a 1-acre gated promontory with views of downtown Los Angeles, Santa Catalina Island and the ocean.
The 28-room home, built in 1955, has a formal sitting room with an antique French fireplace, an oversized dining room with city views, a butler's pantry off the kitchen and staff quarters. Four bedrooms, five bathrooms and a half-bath lie within 6,393 square feet of living space.
Former residents include Howard Hughes and Elvis Presley. Gabor bought the house in 1973 for $280,000.
Her scores of TV and film appearances include a starring role in "Moulin Rouge" (1952) and guest appearances on "The Hollywood Squares" in the 1960s and '70s and "The New Hollywood Squares" in the ''80s.
Christophe Choo of Coldwell Banker, Beverly Hills, is the listing agent.
