Update: The longtime Bel-Air home of actress Elizabeth Taylor has sold for an undisclosed amount.
The house came on the market in May at $8.6 million. The listing agent, David Mossler of Teles Properties in Beverly Hills, declined to reveal the sales price, and weeks or months may pass before it will appear in public records.
Owned by the Oscar-winning actress since 1981, the 1960s ranch-style house sits on 1.27 acres, which include a swimming pool with spa, gardens and a koi pond. The 7,000-square-foot home has a downstairs master suite, two other bedrooms and maid's quarters. A second master suite upstairs has walls upholstered in her signature color: violet.
Taylor, who died in March at 79, won Oscars for her performances in "Butterfield 8" (1960) and "Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf?" (1966). She is ranked seventh on the American Film Institute's greatest screen legends list.Copyright © 2014, Los Angeles Times
