Elvis’s Beverly Hills estate on the market for $12.9 M
MEMPHIS, Tenn. — Real estate website operator Trulia says the former Beverly Hills home of the late Elvis Presley and his wife Priscilla is up for sale.
The home hit the market Wednesday for a cool sale price of $12.9 million.
Like Elvis’s home in Memphis, known as Graceland, Elvis fans have for years flocked to visit the property. According to the listing, the four-bedroom, fivebathroom French Regency estate sits on a 1.18-acre promontory overlooking Los Angeles.
According to Elvis Presley Enterprises, Presley first rented the house before the couple bought it in 1967. It was sold it several years later, after Elvis and Priscilla divorced.
The estate was formally available for lease for $25,000 a month. friends they want to spend time with.”
Adds Rose: “I think it’s fun for (the contestants) to be on TV and meet the people on the panel, and even though it doesn’t sound like a lot of money compared to some American game shows, $5,000 really is a lot of money to make in 22 minutes. If you’re a truck driver or assistant junior manager at a retail store, five grand is a good sum of cash. People get genuinely excited about winning money.”
As the show’s host, Rose has the unenviable task of trying to keep a bunch of spotlight-seeking comedians and actors — each of whom would be happy turning a 22-minute episode into a solo comedy show — focused on the task of helping the contestants win a modest but memorable amount of cash.
“If you let them go, comedians will never stop talking, myself included,” he laughs. “So my job is essentially to tell my friends to shut up, so I can then make fun of them and get on with playing the game.”
