Zsa Zsa Gabor Sells Home for $11 Million: Will Remain in House for 3 Years

Zsa Zsa Gabor's mansion has been sold for $11 million, satisfying an agreement made in court earlier this year.

The actress, 96, has struggled with severe health problem over the past few years. She and her husband, Frederic Prinz von Anhalt, have also had money issues, which were preventing the couple from making payments on their home.

A judge ruled in April, however, that Gabor would be permitted to live out the next three years in her Bel-Air mansion through a delayed home sale. Gabor and her husband would receive $325,000 over the next three years from the home's buyer. If Gabor dies sooner, the deal will close at that time.

The 28-room home was built in 1955. At over 8,000 sq. feet, it was sold this week for $11 million. A Los Angeles lawyer agreed to allow the couple a deferred home sale transaction.

Zsa Zsa Gabor, 96, has suffered from ailing health for some time. She became paralyzed during a 2002 accident, which left her in a wheelchair and she suffered two strokes in 2005 and 2007. In 2010 she was required to undergo hip replacement surgery. A subsequent infection in 2011 forced her to have her left leg amputated. Throughout 2011 she underwent multiple hospitalizations.

But despite her age and ailments, Gabor has previously suggested that she is still going strong. For her birthday last year she hosted a celebration with invitations that revealed the former actress' sense of humor.

"Well it's time to come clean and tell the truth, I can't hide it any more, for the first time I'll be celebrating my real birthday candle count," the invitation read. "Over the years I may have overlooked a year or two (or 20), but not this year."

The invitation included a promise of more birthdays to come.

"I love you and I hope to see you, but if you can't make it don't worry, I'm planning on celebrating more birthdays over the coming years," she wrote.
