Zsa Zsa Gabor’s mansion on sale for $28 million

Zsa Zsa GaborZsa Zsa Gabor and her husband are selling their Los Angeles mansion for an asking price of $28 million, putting on the market a home once lived in by Elvis Presley. The hillside house in the exclusive Los Angeles neighborhood of Bel Air was built for the late aviator and industrialist Howard Hughes, said John Blanchette, a publicist for Gabor. Presley lived in the house - which has 26 rooms and a pool - decades ago when he was acting in movies filmed in Los Angeles, Blanchette said. It is built into a hillside and overlooks the city. The 93 year old, Gabor, the star of 1950s films "Moulin Rouge" and "Lili," had her leg amputated because of a gangrene infection after hip replacement surgery in July. She is recovering in a Los Angeles hospital where doctors have said they are "guardedly optimistic" about her prospects. "We only use two rooms, all the other rooms are locked up. It doesn’t make sense for two people to live in such a big place," said her ninth husband, Frederic Prinz von Anhalt. The couple plans to move to a luxury condominium, he said.

Gabor bought the mansion from Elvis’ estate in the 1970s, sometime after his death, for $600,000, von Anhalt said. The actress got an offer of $18 million for the place 10 years ago, he said.

Married nine times, Gabor once said: "I am a marvelous housekeeper. Every time I leave a man I keep his house."
