The lavish California home of the Taco Bell founder Glen Bell is on the market for the first time since 2015.

Bell, who died in 2010 at 86, was a pioneer of Mexican fast food, opening the chains Taco Tia and El Taco in the 1950s. It wasn’t until 1962 that he founded Taco Bell, which PepsiCo acquired for $US125 million in 1978.

Bell’s massive estate in Rancho Santa Fe, California, is now listed at $US5.9 million. The listing includes two homes – a nearly 7,500-square-foot house with two swimming pools and a chef’s kitchen, and a 4,527-square-foot house with an outdoor entertainment space and a tennis court – which can be purchased together or separately, for $US4 million and $US2.6 million.

The main residence has five bedrooms and 6 1/2 baths. Each of the two master suites has a fireplace and a private garden, and the spacious living room has floor-to-ceiling windows overlooking the backyard.
