The waterfront Miami Beach mansion that the late Elizabeth Taylor called home in the 1940s sold for nearly $20 million.

Property records show 2555 Lake Avenue Home LLC sold the Sunset Islands home to WWWT LLC, a Delaware entity. The seller is managed by Kaloyan Stoyanov of Geneva.

The Stoyanov-led entity paid $15.5 million for the 0.8-acre property in 2013, and listed it for sale in 2017 for $19.9 million.

Taylor lived in the property at 2555 Lake Avenue when she was engaged to William Pawley, whose father developed the 8,082-square-foot house in 1941. It has seven bedrooms, eight bathrooms and one half-bath. There’s also a one-bedroom guest house, a heated saltwater pool, summer kitchen and dock.

Recent sales on the Sunset Islands include the $13 million trade of 1511 West 27th Street, which attorney Wayne Pathman sold to a land trust in December. Hospitality mogul David Grutman sold his waterfront house for $8.3 million — though that’s now back on the market for more than $10 million — and investor Greg Mirmelli sold a mansion for $18 million.
