Maybe money can't buy you you love but a whole lot of it can buy the spectacular Swiss estate of the late George Harrison.

The 1.6 acre property has panoramic views of Lake Lugano and the Swiss Alps and sits at the summit of Montagnola in the Ticino area of southern Switzerland.

Harrison purchased it in July, 2001 while he was receiving cancer treatment at a nearby clinic.  He died at his Los Angeles home only four months later.
