(Fox News) – There are many iconic and infamous homes in Los Angeles, but
rarely do they appear on the market. That might be the reason one home in Bel
Air is attracting so much attention from potential buyers, developers, and fans alike.

Forbes reports this particular Bel Air mansion was reportedly once owned by socialite and actress Zsa Zsa Gabor, and was rumored to have been occupied
by playboy and aviator Howard Hughes, and King of Rock-and-Roll Elvis
Presley — and it’s on the market for $23.4 million.

Katharine Houghton Hepburn (May 12, 1907 – June 29, 2003)

Actress Katharine Hepburn was a leading lady in Hollywood for more than
60 years. She appeared in a range of genres, from
comedy to literary drama,
and she received four
Academy Awards—a record for any performer—for
Best Actress. In 1999, Hepburn was named by the American Film Institute
as the
greatest female star of Classic Hollywood Cinema.

In 1997, Katharine Hepburn had become very weak, was speaking and eating
very little, and it was feared she would die. She showed signs of
dementia in
her final years. In May 2003, an aggressive tumor was found in Hepburn’s
neck. The decision was made not to medically intervene, and she died from
a cardiac arrest on June 29, 2003, a month after her 96th birthday at the
Hepburn family home in
Fenwick, Connecticut.
