A judge has officially ruled that actress Zsa Zsa Gabor can stay in her Bel Air mansion for the remainder of her life. This ruling was made on Friday. Gabor and her husband Frederic Prinz von Anhalt has experienced a lot of financial strain as a result of costly medical bills due to Gabor’s ailing health. As a result von Anhalt decided to put the house on the market for $15 million in 2011.
Although the house remains on the market, the judge has decided that the house can be sold but it must be sold in a deferred transaction. That means that the buyer must allow Gabor and her husband to remain residents on the property for a minimum of three years or until the actress passes on. The new owner is required to pay the couple $325,000 yearly.
Speaking to reporters after the court hearing, von Anhalt said:
“This decision is going to make her very happy. Hopefully she will be with us for more than three years. Her mother lived to be 102.”
The Bel Air mansion is stunning.
According to Haute Living, the home features a gracious and elegant oval shaped formal entryway, grand formal sitting room with antique French fireplace, and an enormous formal dining room perfect for elegant evening entertaining with spectacular views of the city. Exquisite French details and moldings are throughout the house along with high ceilings, tall and glamorous French doors. The spacious master suite has a huge bathroom and double sized two-room closet. The estate also features 4 additional guest bedrooms, maid’s room, breakfast room, kitchen with butlers pantry& staff quarters.
Reportedly the mansion was previously owned by Elvis Presley.
