Elvis Presley's Beverly Hills house up for sale

Elvis Presley's Beverly Hills house has been put up for sale.

The singer's home, which he lived in with his wife Priscella, has been put on the market for a cool $12.9million, according to real estate operator Truila.

The listing states that the four bedroom, five bathroom French regency-styled estate sits on a 1.18 acre property and boasts panoramic views of Los Angeles and the Pacific Ocean.

Elvis' former estate was previously available to rent for a lease of $25,000 a month. The home was built in 1958 and, like the singer's Graceland home, fans often flock to its gates to sneak a look. The property has changed since Elvis bought it in 1967. The listing says the gated, remodeled home has a new kitchen and laundry room, and the pool and spa have been resurfaced.

This sale comes hot on the heels of the failed auction of the singer's stained underpants. The pants, which were worn by Presley underneath one of his jumpsuits during a performance in 1977, hadn't been washed since Elvis took them off, and featured a suspicious yellow stain on the front of the crotch.

The 35th anniversary of the death of Elvis Presley was recently marked by a candlelit vigil at his Graceland home in Memphis. It was attended by an estimated 75,000 fans.

Elvis Presley died on August 16, 1977 at the age of 42 after suffering a heart attack. He is buried in the grounds of Graceland alongside his parents and grandmother. There is also a memorial headstone for his twin, Jesse Garon.
