The LA Times is reporting that Candy Spelling’s expansive estate in the secluded Holmby Hills area has been sold to a 22-year-old British heiress.
Spelling, widow of legendary TV producer Aaron Spelling, put the 4.7-acre residence up for sale more than two years ago at $150 million, and has repeatedly refused to sell for less than the asking price.
Nicknamed “The Manor” the 4.7-acre residence is the largest home in Los Angeles County at 56,500 square feet, or, to put in perspective, slightly larger than the White House.
Candy Spelling supervised the construction of the home which was completed in 1991. The mammoth home boasts a bowling alley, a flower-cutting room, a wine cellar/tasting room, a barbershop and a silver storage room with humidity control, among other spaces.
Outside is a tennis court, a koi pond, gardens, a citrus orchard and a swimming pool with a pool house. The motor court can accommodate 100 vehicles and there are 16 carports. A service wing houses the staff in five maids’ bedrooms and two butlers’ suites. The house is believed to have more than 100 rooms.
Now, Petra Ecclestone, the daughter of British billionaire and Formula One Chief Executive Bernie Ecclestone, is in escrow to buy the property, according to the Wall Street Journal.
