Priscilla Presley is saying goodbye to her longtime Beverly Hills mansion.

The actress, 75, has found a new owner for her Italian-style villa. The final sale price was $13 million and Peter Zimble and Dan Beder of Sotheby's International Realty represented the buyer. She initially listed the house in August for $15.995 million with Jonah Wilson of Hilton & Hyland.

The seven-bedroom and 8.5-bathroom home was built in 1951 and sits on an acre of land that features brick walkways and patios, several fountains, gardens, a tiled swimming pool and a tennis court.

Inside, the home's character shines through with vaulted ceilings, exposed beams and arched doorways. Rich wood panels lining the walls in certain areas of the home and wrought ironwork throughout give it a timeless feel.

In addition to its many bedrooms, the estate also comes with a separate guest suite above the garage.

In 2018, Presley opened up to Closer about purchasing the Beverly Hills home, telling the outlet she bought it to be close to her late ex-husband, Elvis Presley.

"Elvis stayed in the Holmby Hills home I found for us," Priscilla told the outlet at the time. "We were very, very close, and I wanted to make sure his house was near to our daughter, Lisa Marie."

Priscilla was married to the iconic singer for about six years before their divorce in 1973. Their daughter, Lisa Marie, was around 5 years old at the time.

The villa felt perfect for Priscilla, as it was "secluded with the gates, so you can't see in," she said. "It was a sanctuary for me."

Last year, Presley also sold a ranch-style Brentwood home for $3.65 million that she originally bought for $170,000 in 1976, according to Architectural Digest. The single-story home was originally built in 1949 and boasted four bedrooms and three bathrooms on 2,499 square feet of space.

Her latest listing came just one month after the tragic death of her grandson, Benjamin Keough. Benjamin — the son of Lisa Marie — died by suicide on July 12 at the age of 27.
