Heartbreak mansion! Elvis Presley's fully restored Palm Springs honeymoon hideaway goes back on the market after a mega price slash

The King and his new bride certainly got things All Shook Up in the home and now this pristine Mid-Century home with plenty of rock n roll history can be yours - for a discount.
Elvis Presley's Palm Springs, California, home where he once lived and then honeymooned with bride Priscilla in the Sixties, has gone back on the market more than a year after it failed to sell.
The exquisite example of the space-aged design popular in the period that has been slept in by the King himself, will now put any Elvis fans back $6.93 million, according to its listing on Trulia.

While that is not exactly the most affordable Elvis souvenir, the home was originally listed $9.5m at the start of last year.
Cue a few months and a change of agents - seems Million Dollar Listing's Josh Altman could not find anyone to fall in Burning Love with the property - for more than $3m less you can buy the four bedroom, five bathroom liveable museum.
Currently dubbed the Honeymoon Hideaway and used as a tourist destination to celebrate all that is Elvis, the property was originally rented by the King in 1966 so he could be closer to his manager Colonel Tom Parker.

Elvis was set to wed his young bride Priscilla at the home the following year but reportedly a gossip columnist also lived nearby and got wind of the nuptials so the pair were whisked off to Vegas.
They returned to the home, which sits at the base of the San Jacinto Mountains, to honeymoon and as the home's website currently boasts with a wink, wink - Lisa Marie was born nine months later.
