Elizabeth Taylor - Elizabeth Taylor's Bel Air Estate Sells

Dame Elizabeth Taylor's home has been sold.

The Oscar-winning actress - who passed away from congestive heart failure in March at the age of 79 - lived in the 1960s ranch-style house in Bel Air, California, for 30 years until her death, and it is now believed to have sold for somewhere in the region of $8.6 million.

According to an email announcement from listing agent David Mossler of Teles Properties, the property was purchased by an undisclosed buyer after 33 days on the market.

While the price the ranch was eventually sold for is yet to be revealed, the 7,000-square-foot estate - previously owned by singer Nancy Sinatra - features its own swimming pool, maids' quarters and bricked motor court.

Meanwhile, the second-floor master suite offers "treetop views, master bath with spa tub, adjacent dressing room/salon and two smaller bedrooms".

Elizabeth's son Christopher Wilding previously said of the property: "The house was where we all gathered, especially at Thanksgiving and Easter. She never entertained the notion of moving."

Elsewhere, a number of items belonging to the 'Cleopatra' actress are to be sold at auction in December.

Marc Porter, chairman of Christie's Americas - who will be selling the star's personal possessions - said: "A rare woman who was at once an international film and fashion star, loving mother, successful businesswoman and generous humanitarian, this collection of her many cherished possessions will bring us closer to the essence of Elizabeth Taylor's unique spirit."
