Zsa Zsa Gabor's Bel-Air estate back on the market
Price is $14.9 million — up from the $12.9 million it was priced at in March. The screen and Broadway actress, who bought the house in 1973 for $280,000, has entertained Queen Elizabeth and U.S. presidents at her residence.

The property received a notice of default in February that was rescinded this month when Gabor's ninth husband, Frederic Prinz von Anhalt, paid off one home loan and secured a larger one. More than $6 million is owed on the house, according to public records.
The French Normandy-style mansion sits on a 1-acre-plus gated site with 270-degree views from downtown L.A. to the ocean. Built in 1955, the house features a circular foyer, a butler's pantry, six bedrooms, seven bathrooms and 8,878 square feet of living space.
The screen and Broadway actress, who bought the house in 1973 for $280,000, has entertained Queen Elizabeth and U.S. presidents at the residence. Her scores of TV and film appearances include a starring role in "Moulin Rouge" (1952) and guest appearances on "The Hollywood Squares" in the 1960s and '70s and "The New Hollywood Squares" in the '80s.
Gabor, 95, has been in and out of the hospital for health problems including a leg amputation and pneumonia. Von Anhalt announced in January 2011 that he hoped to sell the mansion to move the actress somewhere she would be more comfortable and to cover her medical bills.
