Elizabeth Taylor's Former Fiance's House For Sale or For Rent

Just a few weeks ago we learned that beloved silver screen star Elizabeth Taylor had a lifelong love affair with real estate, and here's another house to add to the saga. She was only 17 when she met William Pawley, Jr., the handsome son of a rich businessman, but that didn't stop the two lovebirds from spending long, sun-kissed afternoons in Pawley's family's nine-bedroom, 9,150-square-foot estate in Miami Beach. The home, built in '41 and renovated in 2009, is currently asking $50K a month in rent and will soon hit the market for $13.9M. On the grounds: all the making of a love story for the ages, including a pool, spa, cabana, and 150 feet of water frontage. As it turns out, Taylor and Pawley were engaged but never married; he, now 90, took 25 years after their split to marry.
