The actress bought the some 7,000-square foot, ranch-style house in 1981 and lived there until her death in March 2011 at age 79. The house was put on sale for $8.6 million, it was announced in May 2011. The property contains five bedrooms - including a master bedroom whose walls are painted violet to match Taylor's signature color, a living room with a wood-beam ceiling, a powder room with a sauna and shower and a lawn with flowerbeds, a othouse for orchids and a koi pond with a waterfall.
