Zsa Zsa Gabor's husband, who serves as the 96-year-old actress' court-appointed conservator, is asking the judge to let him sell her longtime residence in order for her to actually remain there until she's nearly 100 years old.

Frederic Prinz von Anhalt is requesting he be allowed to make a "deferred sale" of Gabor's Bel Air Road property so that he can make a $1.15 loan payment on the manse, and so that Gabor can reside there for at least three more years, according to City News Service. Gabor has called the house her home for nearly 40 years.

Von Anhalt has been named as Gabor's conservator until August 21; his position has long been questioned by Gabor's daughter, Constance Francesca Hilton, who fears the eclectic von Anhalt has shady motives. Hilton filed a request to serve as her mother's conservator, a move von Anhalt last year said made him "furious."

Gabor's current income is less than $9000 per month, however her in-home health care expenses alone cost $10,000 monthly not including other living expenses, according to court documents filed by von Anhalt and his attorney. The home loans for Gabor's residence total $5.1 million, but von Anhalt estimates refinancing would increase the total to $5.6 million. A deferred sale would bring in revenue but delay Gabor having to move out.

The enduring ingenue has had more than her fair share of health scares in the past few years. She current has a partially amputated leg, and a host of other medical woes that have plagued her of late. Over the most recent Christmas holidays, Gabor was hospitalized for an infection, which von Anhalt remarked really "fucked up" their holidays. A prior hospitalization stemmed from the death of legendary actress Elizabeth Taylor; Gabor feared she was "next" and needed medical attention to help her through the nerve-wracking loss.

Currently, Gabor is unable to talk about her wishes regarding her property because of her condition, so von Anhalt has been in communication with his wife's court-appointed attorney, Leanne Maillian, according to the conservator's court papers.
