Taylor's 'Heavenly' Childhood Up For Sale

Dame Elizabeth Taylor's childhood home has gone on the market for the first time in 30 years - priced at a staggering $13 million (GBP6.5 million).
The veteran actress spent her foremost years at the five bedroom property in Hampstead Garden Suburb in north London - a time she thinks fondly of as "the happiest days" of her childhood.
The house was founded in 1904 and boasts landscape gardens set in grounds spanning two-thirds of an acre.
She once recalled, "The happiest days of my youth were when my brother Howard and I would run through the woods and feel quite safe playing.
"I wonder whether the Suburb is still like that now. I do hope so. It was like heaven for us."
The double Oscar winner was born and bred in London before relocating to Los Angeles with her parents in 1939, aged seven.
