Sold! Elizabeth Taylor’s historic Virginia farm

If you ever wanted to live like a queen, residing in Elizabeth Taylor’s former manor would be a fabulous place to start.

The late Academy Award winner once lived on this sprawling farm property, which is known as Atoka Farm, in Middleburg, Virginia, with her sixth husband, John Warner.

This country-style, 1860s field-stone manor features five bedrooms on three separate levels, as well as an indoor pool and tennis court – and it just sold for more than $8million.

Take a tour of this scenic property to get a glimpse of the place where the eternally imitable Elizabeth once called home.

This farm is located in what locals describe as “horse country” within the area.

A lot of the original 1830s structures hold up this incredibly beautiful, and historic, home.

The interiors are rustic and spacious, yet refined – perfect for all of Elizabeth’s grandeur.

Elizabeth and her sixth husband John were married atop of a hill on the Atoka Farm property, just five months after they met.

This 1830s manor features plenty of rooms for people to sleep in, which meant Elizabeth and John’s family and friends could regularly visit.

It is believed that this farm reminded the Cleopatra actress of growing up on London.

Original architecture gives this property the kind of old country charm, which is emblematic of the 1830s.
