“A dynamic winged, spaceship-like roofline shelters four circular pods with the center of the house jutting out from a dramatic tiered waterfall,” The Post previously reported.

Through double height carved timber doors, the futuristic accommodation leads to a ‘sunken party pad’ made up of stone walls, glass and a floating hearth. Natural sunlight abounds throughout, and the open format living room overlooks a covered dining room and poolside lounge. The primary suite with balcony is at observation deck level and a circular bathtub is located at the top of a grand staircase. The other bedrooms also feature en-suite bathrooms, and two also have a terrace.

Bridge and Armistead put the property on the market after a renovation that included restoring various details, including stone floors and terrazzo.

Priscilla, 77, and Elvis have been married for six years. They divorced in 1973.
