Urgent action is needed to save John Elgin Woolf designed home of Zsa Zsa Gabor. The belongings have been auctioned by her 9th husband Fredric von Anhalt. The Regency-style estate was built in 1955 and was featured as Liberace’s house in Behind the Candelabra. It was once home to Elvis Presley before it was purchased by Gabor in 1974. It has six bedrooms and seven bathrooms with details such as mirrored walls, and ornate chandeliers and sconces.It also has a pool and boasts panoramic views from Downtown Los Angeles to the Pacific Ocean. The home boasts an “…exquisite dining room that has entertained guests such as Queen Elizabeth, US Presidents, CEO's, dignitaries and celebrities.” The home was built by Howard Hughes and rented to Elvis Presley originally. The home now looks set to be torn down, unless urgent action is initiated to landmark the structure right away. When it was sold, the sale included plans for a 24,020-square-foot Mega-Mansion, which will be erasing a little piece of Hollywood history and another iconic structure. The new home will include new construction of a two-story house as well as a new pool along with covered loggias. Additionally the plans also call for a parking garage the size of two single-family homes on the acre of property. #zsazsagabor #gabor #belaire #regencyrevival #hollywoodregency #beverlyhills #zsazsa #belair #liberace #elvispresley #oldhollywood #hollywoodglamour #johnelginwoolf

Elvis Presley Video:  Can’t Help Falling In Love

Elvis Presley  “Can’t Help Falling in Love” Lyrics

Wise men say only fools rush in
But I can’t help falling in love with you
Shall I stay?
Would it be a sin
If I can’t help falling in love with you?
Like a river flows surely to the sea
Darling so it goes
Some things are meant to be
Take my hand, take my whole life too
For I can’t help falling in love with you
Like a river flows surely to the sea
Darling so it goes
Some things are meant to be
Take my hand, take my whole life too
For I can’t help falling in love with you
For I can’t help falling in love with you

Songwriters: George David Weiss, Hugo E Peretti, and Luigi Creatore
