A sprawling Beverly Hills mansion once home to Prince and Elizabeth Taylor has gone on the market for a cool $30 million.

When Alaskan-native Carlos Boozer signed with the Utah Jazz in 2004 for big money, he wanted a home in the sun and bought a stunning Southern California tennis estate, decorating it with the very best high-end furnishings.

His music idol, Prince, then offered him $95,000 per month for a one-year lease and soon moved in. A couple of months later when Boozer was back in LA, he discovered that Prince had changed almost everything about his house.

His beautiful furnishings were gone and replaced by black-and-purple everything. The weight room was now a disco dance floor with a DJ booth and his bedrooms converted to a hair salon and massage parlour.

Boozer threatened to sue but Prince soon returned everything back to the way it was when he first rented the home. The two became best friends up until Prince's death in 2016.

Today, the mansion is on an estate comprising the main house of approximately 15,101 square feet and an English Tudor home of 3,300 square feet, along with two extra parcels of land making up the total compound of 2.15 acres.

The palatial main house has 10 bedrooms, 13 baths, a ballroom, wine room, large terraces for entertaining with views of city and ocean, a rooftop tennis court and a pool with a stone grotto reminiscent of the Playboy Mansion. There's even a slide and a poolside DJ area... Imagine the parties.

Built in 1953 at the cusp between Old Hollywood and the new, it is a home that was designed for entertaining and saw many a grand party over the years, including a few Prince concerts for his friends.

Now seeking its next new owner, one of LA’s most significant homes and former residence of Prince and Elizabeth Taylor, is for sale at $29.995 million, or for lease of the main mansion at $80,000 per month.
