If you can’t afford to drop the millions required in order to buy an A-lister’s home (we feel your pain), why not rent one? Elvis Presley’s 1960s home is officially up for grabs on property rental service HomeAway.
Admittedly, the $2,950 per night price tag is anything but budget-friendly, but for die-hard Elvis fans willing to splurge for a few days, this could be the ideal vacation getaway. Situated in Beverly Hills’ Trousdale Estates area, the stunning cliffside mansion covers 5,367 square feet and offers panoramic views of both the city and ocean.
The rock icon lived in the midcentury home with his then-wife Priscilla and daughter Lisa Marie. His presence is quite literally seen throughout the home, thanks to a smattering of Elvis-themed artwork adorning the walls. According to the listing, the original gates that Elvis used to speak to his fans through are also still up.
High ceilings and floor-to-ceiling windows make the four-bedroom, six-bedroom residence feel even more spacious. There’s a ton of natural light, and the simple, uncluttered decor scheme and bright white walls lend an airy, open feel to the home.
Inside, guests will find a large living room with a fireplace, an office with built-in bookshelves and sweeping landscape views, and a bar area located under a skylight. There’s also another skylight in the contemporary dining room.
In need of extra seating? The newly-renovated kitchen, which overlooks the pool and includes stainless steel appliances and whitewashed cabinetry, has both a bar and separate dining area.
The sprawling outdoor space is perfect for entertaining, offering a pool, spa, and outdoor fireplace. There’s even an attached guesthouse fully equipped with sleek, contemporary furnishings that overlooks the pool area.
To take the royal treatment to the next level, HomeAway is also offering a 24/7 concierge service to guests, who will be in good company in this upscale LA area—Trousdale has played host to a slew of notable names, including Frank Sinatra, Richard Nixon, and Jennifer Aniston.
