There’s no doubt that Elvis Presley is one of the most renowned and beloved figures in the entire history of pop culture.
In the decades since his death, the “King of Rock and Roll” hasn’t faded from our memories. He revolutionized music and introduced the world to so many classic tunes that, to this day, we all still love.
The Mississippi native’s catalog contains dozens of songs that are instantly recognizable to both superfans and casual listeners alike.
Sadly, Elvis struggled with drug abuse and eventually died after a heart attack at the young age of 42, on August 16, 1977.
But 40 years after his death, fans can live like “the King” — by renting out his former home.
One of Elvis’ many residences has recently gone on the market for interested renters. Realtors shared photos of the gorgeous home on various home rental websites.

Elvis Aron Presley was born on January 8, 1935.
It was in the 1950s that the talented singer and actor rose to prominence and became one of the most significant pop culture icons of all time.
The King met his future wife, Priscilla Ann Wagner, when she was only 14 years old in 1959. Despite their age difference, he was infatuated with her.
In 1963, she moved in with Elvis at his most famous residence: Graceland, in Memphis.
Among the many he owned during the course of his life, Elvis’ Graceland mansion is no doubt the rock-and-roll star’s most famous residence.
It is currently a U.S. National Historic Landmark and is located on a street that was eventually renamed for Elvis, who died in the bathroom of that house. It’s also one of the biggest tourist attractions in the entire world.
But unlike Graceland, Elvis’ Beverly Hills mansion remained residential.
Priscilla and Elvis married on May 1, 1967 in Las Vegas and bought the Beverly Hills mansion that same year, according to NBC Los Angeles. The two lived there from 1967 to 1973.
In late 2016, the home was on the market for $30 million — a far cry from the $400,000 the music icon purchased it for nearly 50 years earlier!
In a description of the property, the managing realtor explains a bit about the house’s history and design:
Elvis Presley’s former Beverly Hills estate boasts 4-bedrooms, 5-baths, and spans 5,367 square feet, with floor-to-ceiling windows and walls of glass in every room.
This Trousdale property, perched on a small cliff, was one he shared with wife Priscilla and daughter Lisa Marie in the late 1960’s.
The backyard features expansive lounging and entertaining space, including a large pool and spa. This magnificent property still has the original gates that Elvis used to come and talk to fans through.
Set far back behind gates and mature trees, a long driveway and four-car motor court lead to the newly renovated 5,400-square-foot mid-century residence and attached guesthouse.
Spacious interiors are magnified by high ceilings, warm hardwood floors, and floor-to-ceiling windows that let in abundant natural light.
Features an incredibly luxurious master suite, skylights, fireplaces and coffered ceilings are complemented by contemporary updates.
Ample outdoor lounging and entertaining space is offered throughout a large patio featuring a fireplace, custom pool and spa, as well as lush lawns, set against breathtaking panoramic vistas.
There’s no doubt that the enormous house is incredibly luxurious! Unfortunately, it’s got the price tag to match. Renting the home doesn’t come cheap, starting at $2,950 per night with a required minimum of five nights.
While this is definitely well outside of my vacation price range, it’s still really cool to see a place where the King spent a portion of his earlier life up close and personal.
