There won't be any more Elvis spottings around Hidden Hills, Calif. The King's daughter, Lisa Marie Presley, has sold her ranch home in the gated Los Angeles community for $5 million. It had been listed at $6,995,000.

The sale of Lisa Presley's California home may disrupt the life of one of Lisa's other husbands -- musician Danny Keough, who was her first spouse and the father of her two older children. Keough had been living for awhile in the one-bedroom guest house; the two remained close friends after their divorce. The guest house has a studio with sound booth.

The main home and guest house combined have about 8,000 square feet of living space.

Hidden Hills is a gated equestrian community in the San Fernando Valley that literally sits astride the busy 101 Freeway. The Kardashian compound is there and the community has been a draw for an odd assortment of celebrities, including Ozzie and Sharon Osbourne who chose to live here instead of their Malibu beachfront home. Denise Richards filmed her reality TV show from her house here. And Sinbad went bankrupt here. Hidden Hills' appeal doesn't seem to extend to A-Listers, who prefer to either be in Malibu or the Beverly Hills-Bel-Air corridor where the homes are more stately, one-of-a-kind and closer in to the action.

Tracy T. Maltas of Partners Trust and Marc Shevin of Prudential California in Calabasas, shared the listing.
