If you've ever wanted to see how the other half lives -- and have an extra $8.6 million to spare -- you should consider snatching up Elizabeth Taylor's former abode, which is now listed publicly. Real Estalker notes that word had spread of Taylor's home being up for sale last week, but that a public listing wasn't made available until today, at Mossler Properties.

The house sits on 1.27 acres, and was owned by Taylor since 1981. At 7,000 square feet, it features two master bedrooms and four smaller bedrooms. Outside boasts a pool and spa inlaid with mosaic tiles, gardens of orchids, orchids and lilies, and a koi pond with a waterfall. According to the listing, the grounds also have pathways: "Trails around the perimeter of the property lead to a secret bamboo “jungle” and to the upper rose gardens."

In a statement, Taylor's son says that his mother enjoyed hosting family get-togethers there:

“It was the focal point for the family and where we all gathered, especially at Thanksgiving and Easter,” says her son Christopher Wilding. “She never entertained the notion of moving.”
