    Stars have always wanted privacy, luxury and a place to get away, and some of their special places are available for sale.

    But not all homes are made equal: A home where Elvis once lived has fallen into disrepair and has been on the market for eight months, while Bing Crosby's ranch house just got a 43 percent price hike. Lucille Ball and Desi Arnaz's former estate has become ultra-modern in their absence, while Betty Grable's mansion kept its Old Hollywood glamour (complete with a saltwater pool).

    It's anyone's guess which homes will sell with a fame-based markup and which will get D-listed.

    Here are 6 homes for sale where legendary celebrities once slept.
