A showbiz home, which once had Hollywood couple Elizabeth Taylor and Richard Burton as neighbours, is up for sale for a whopping £1.3million.

The Elstree Lodge in Elstree, Hertfordshire, is in an area likened to a 'mini Bel-Air' because of the number of celebrities who once called it home.

Sophia Loren and Carlo Ponti, Joan Collins and Anthony Newley, Stanley Kubrick, Roger Moore, Rex Harrison, James Mason and Olivia De Havilland have all lived there, with the Victorian-era lodge situated just near Elstree Studios.
