Priscilla Presley’s Beverly Hills mansion up for sale

Priscilla Presley has finally decided to part with the Beverly Hills mansion she called her “sanctuary” for so many years thanks to its beauty and seclusion.

According to the LA Times, Ms Presley – now 70 years of age – has listed the home for $16m, after she bought the mansion in the 1970s to be close to her ex-husband Elvis.

Built in 1951 and listed with Beverly Hills Real Estate company Hilton & Hyland, the home boasts seven bedrooms, eight-and-a-half bathrooms, a tile-lined swimming pool, tennis court and more.

The estate is set behind a gated entry way, and is tucked between lush trees providing privacy.

“Available for the first time in over 45 years,” writes realtor Jonah Wilson in the listing, “this private enclave is nestled on over one acre of verdant grounds within the city limits of Beverly Hills”.

Priscilla described the estate as a sanctuary because it's secluded, hidden behind a gate and surrounded by lines of trees.

Inside, the house features vaulted ceilings, with exposed beams in dark wood and matching framed archways.

Dark wood runs through the home, also featured in window panes, sculpted pillars throughout and panelling in the library/den combination room.

A large ensuite has double sinks and mirrors on a dark wood vanity, with velvet drapes providing coverage to personal items. Stone work lines the glass shower, and tub tucked under a window.

The swimming pool is surrounded by gardens, a covered seating area, stone work and a statue.

A Steinway & Sons grand piano sits under a chandelier in the corner of one of the rooms. Check out just some of the amazing interior and exterior images below.
