Coldwell Banker Global Luxury has confirmed the new listing — the first time in 21 years the property has been up for sale — at 1375 Beverly Estates Dr. for $15.9 million. According to the real estate broker, the couple purchased the 2.01 acre property as their private L.A. retreat in 1954, shortly after it was built in 1953. According to reports, Taylor and Wilding made the decision to buy the property after scaling a fence to check out the grounds. Taylor and Wilding married in 1952 and divorced in 1957.

 

The property is repped by Joyce Rey and Arlene Rutenberg of Coldwell Banker Global Luxury.

 

Budd Holden, a designer and architect known for creating estates for Hollywood clients in the 1980s and 1990s including Barbra Streisand and Cher, was engaged by the current owners to design the property’s interiors as they appear today.
