Step Inside Zsa Zsa Gabor’s Mansion in Bel-Air

This celebrity auction is over the top, dah-ling

Zsa Zsa Gabor lived a big, opulent life in a big, opulent mansion in Bel-Air—and now’s your chance to take a peek inside. Heritage Auctions is selling off the worldly possessions of the late actress, who passed away in late 2016. People who purchase the auction catalogue for $50 may see the objects in situ, as Frank Sinatra or the Queen of England might have, this Thursday and Friday. Frédéric Prinz von Anhalt, Gabor’s last husband and widower, will even be on hand.

Gabor filled the ornate 6,400-square-foot landmark with extravagant furnishings, artwork, and ephemera from a career that stretched from beauty pageants in pre-war Europe to the Oscar-winning musical Moulin Rouge, to decades of playing parodies of herself, the ultimate Hollywood glamour girl, by way of Budapest.

The ornate home she lived in for about half her 99 years has been sold and everything in the six bedrooms, ornate pool deck, and 5,000-gown closet has got to go. We’re talking lawn lions, crystal chandeliers, and gold candelabras literally by the ton.
