Elizabeth Taylor was the epitome of elegance, so it must have been somewhat of a surprise when she, along with her husband at the time John Warner, a United States senator, lived on a farm for several years. “Atoka Farm,” the farm estate where she reportedly “took quickly to the quiet country life” is being sold for $8.8 million.
Taylor and Warner got hitched on the 400-plus acre property and lived there together throughout their six year marriage. During the married couple’s stay at the farm, the iconic actress had been known to go horse riding, while the politician was one to host political events there.
Named after a Cherokee Indian chief, Atoka Farm, has a three-level main residence with an abundance of windows, three fireplaces, hardwood floors, and a wood-beamed ceiling.
Built in the 1860s, the beautiful fieldstone manor home features more than 7,000 square feet of space, as well as, at least, four bedrooms, four-and-half bathrooms, an indoor pool, a tennis court, and multiple barns.
The listing agent for the estate, which was sold in the early 90s for over $3.5 million, is John Coles.
Atoka Farm may not be on the market for long. Realtor.com reports that “an offer might be in the works” for the farmhouse, which Taylor once called home.
