Zsa Zsa Gabor's home in the affluent neighborhood of Bel Air, Los Angeles, California was put up for sale on Tuesday for $15 million, according to CNN.

The four- bedroom, five and-a-half-bathroom home was built in 1955 and is 6,393 square feet. Gabor moved into the home 35 years ago and legendary music producer Quincy Jones is a neighbor.

The home is described as having "commanding views of downtown Los Angeles, Santa Monica, the ocean and Catalina Island" and is decorated with unique accents including several horse head sculptures featured on tables throughout the home. The property also feature living quarters for the maids, a heated pool and an enclosed patio.

Gabor's husband, Frederic Prinz von Anhalt announced in January that he wanted to sell the Bel Air home for $28 million in order to cover the costs of Gabor's medical bills, according to the Los Angeles Times, however, he later changed his mind.

The former actress has been in and out of the hospital for the past year.

She began her series of hospital visits after she broke her hip on July 17 after falling out of her bed while reaching to answer her telephone as she was watching "Jeopardy!."

She underwent a hip operation but suffered several complications. During one of her hospital stays in August, she had a priest read her last rites.

Gabor had one of her legs amputated in January after doctors found an infection and antibiotics failed to heal it. She was also hospitalized in March, after the death of her friend, actress Elizabeth Taylor. Von Anhalt said his wife was "inconsolable."

Gabor fell into a coma in May after undergoing stomach surgery, a day after she was rushed back to a Los Angeles hospital, after suffering complications with a feeding tube that had been inserted in her stomach.

Gabor's spokesperson told OnTheRedCarpet.com on Wednesday, May 18, that the actress fell into a coma sometime on Tuesday night after undergoing stomach surgery.

The 94-year-old woke up from her coma on May 20. She is partially paralyzed from a 2002 car accident and uses a wheelchair. She also reportedly had a stroke in 2005.

The home up for sale was also broken into in February. Gabor's husband said the trespassers entered their home at around 3 a.m. He said he chased the intruders off with a baseball bat.

Gabor is reported to have been born in Budapest on Feb. 6, 1917 as Sari Gabor. She married von Anhalt in 1986. Gabor was married to Hilton, the great-grandfather of socialite Paris Hilton, from 1942 to 1947, and they had one daughter - Francesca, who is the actress' only child.

Gabor followed her actress sister Eva to Hollywood, where she later starred in movies herself, starting in 1952 with the films "Lovely to Look At," "We're Not Married!" and "Moulin Rouge." She also played herself in a brief scene in the 1991 Leslie Nielsen cop movie "The Naked Gun 2-1/2: The Smell of Fear," in which she parodied an incident from about a year earlier in which she was convicted of slapping a police officer during a traffic dispute. She also had a cameo in the film "A Very Brady Sequel" in 1996.
