After more than two years on the open market, Zsa Zsa Gabor and her weird husband Frederic Prinz von Anhalt have finally sold their long-time house in Bel Air. And now the new owners are probably 'bout to introduce it to the wrecking ball. Von Anhalt started chattering in January 2011 that they were planning to sell the house for $28 million and that they already had scads of Chinese and Russian buyers dying to buy it. Flash-forward to June 2011 when it hit the MLS asking $15 million. The house was built in 1955 and sits on more than acre; it has six bedrooms, seven bathrooms, a wetbar, and an "exquisite dining room that has entertained guests such as Queen Elizabeth, US Presidents, CEO's, dignitaries and celebrities." Gabor has owned since the 1970s.
For the past two years, it's jumped on and off the market, occasionally undergoing a pricechopping or priceupping, entering into escrow, or appearing in a film (Oscar-winner Argo). Now listing brokerage Rodeo Realty Beverly Hills tells us the house sold last week for $11 million, to an LA-based real estate holding firm, and that the property will probably be redeveloped. If you'd like to see it one last time, it's appearing in HBO's Liberace biopic Behind the Candelabra, debuting this Sunday.
