ELIZABETH Taylor's childhood home in Hampstead Garden Suburb is being sold for millions of pounds.

Brochures have been sent out promoting the five-bedroom Wildwood Road home the world famous actress described as "heaven" in the Ham&High last year.

Insiders say the mansion on the exclusive road will go for around £7million.

Dame Elizabeth wrote about the house in a letter for the area's centenary year. She said: "The happiest days of my youth were when my brother and I would run through the woods and feel quite safe. I wonder whether the Suburb is still like that now. I do hope so. It was heaven for this child and her brother."

Now the home is up for sale and hoping to welcome in a new family - possibly giving rise to another movie icon.

Estate agents Glentree International have been tasked with the mansion's sale. Their brochure describes it as "excellent family living accommodation" located in a "rural and tranquil setting.
