The once-glorious Zsa Zsa Gabor estate will soon hit the market for $23,450 million and is being marketed for redevelopment. Represented by Jade Mills of Coldwell Banker Global Luxury, the property has a legendary history. Situated on nearly an acre in Bel - Air, the home was built in 1955. Marketing material purports that the house was commissioned by Howard Hughes. It was the home of Elvis Presley before it belonged to Zsa Zsa Gabor. Zsa Zsa was famous for just being “Zsa Zsa.” She was a movie star of the Golden Era and a noteworthy socialite, the host of many lavish events at the residence. She is reported to have had Queen Elizabeth, Ronald Reagan, George H. W. Bush, Elizabeth Taylor and Frank Sinatra to her home. Argo, starring Ben Affleck, featured the estate. In 2013, HBO shot Behind the Candelabra, with Matt Damon and Michael Douglas at the home. The house will be re-introduced to the market with approved plans and permits for a new 24,020 square foot house by Harrison Design. The original Hollywood Regency style-home is 8,878 square feet. Features include a grand formal living room, circular foyer entry, expansive patios, chef’s kitchen and formal living and dining rooms-and a view. “This is a once-in-a lifetime opportunity to own a piece of Hollywood history,” said Mills, who said it is ready to be “transformed into an elite compound,” when it is demolished.
