"The Regency-style estate was built in 1955 and was featured as Liberace’s house in Behind the Candelabra,” the IG post read. “It was once home to Elvis Presley before it was purchased by Gabor in 1974.”
The home boasts six bedrooms and seven bathrooms. It also features a pool and panoramic views from Downtown Los Angeles to the Pacific Ocean.
The Howard Hughes-built home has an “exquisite dining room that has entertained guests such as Queen Elizabeth, US Presidents, CEO's, dignitaries and celebrities.”
The social media post continued that the home is set to be torn down “unless urgent action is initiated to landmark the structure right away.”
“When it was sold, the sale included plans for a 24,020-square-foot Mega-Mansion, which will be erasing a little piece of Hollywood history and another iconic structure,” the post read. “The new home will include new construction of a two-story house as well as a new pool along with covered loggias. Additionally, the plans also call for a parking garage the size of two single-family homes on the acre of property.”
Gabor’s 9th husband Fredric von Anhalt auctioned her belongings in the home. She passed away in December 2016 at age 99.
Von Anhalt is the sole trustee of her estate. The home was sold to a private buyer for $20.8 million.
