The fabled 56,500-square-foot Holmby Hills mansion built by super-producer Aaron Spelling (Charlie’s Angels, The Love Boat, Dynasty, Beverly Hills 90210, Melrose Place etc etc etc) just sold for $120 million — the highest home price in L.A. County history, according to the Los Angeles Times.
The Manor was built in 1991 for the late producer and his wife, Candy Spelling. Candy sold the home to Petra Stunt, daughter of Formula One billionaire Bernie Ecclestone, eight years ago. Stunt, who originally paid $85 million in cash in July 2011, pocket listed the mansion at $150 million, the same price Candy asked in March 2009 when she put it on the market.
Stunt’s decision to sell came after she decided not to come back to Los Angeles. “Buying a house in L.A. was an impulsive move,” the source added.
An $85 million impulse buy….
That she paid for IN CASH…
I mean… Can you IMAGINE?
The 123-room mansion famously boasts movie theaters, an underground nightclub, a bowling alley, a flower-cutting room, a humidity-controlled silver storage room, a barbershop, a beauty spa, and multiple – yes MULTIPLE – gift-wrapping rooms. The house also included a French wine and cheese room furnished with sidewalk tables, chairs and French music.
