AN enormous mansion that once belonged to Charlies’ Angels creator Aaron Spelling has sold for a record-breaking £95 million in California.
The sprawling 56,500-square-foot pile, known as The Manor, has become the most expensive home ever sold in LA County after spending three-years on the market.
The property was built in 1991 for Spelling’s wife, Candy, and later given the nickname “Candyland”.
Formula One heiress Petra Ecclestone then bought the home from Candy in 2011 £65 million, five years after Aaron died on the estate five days after suffering a stroke.
During the Spellings’ years of ownership, the 14-bedroom, 27-bathroom mansion had a room dedicated to Candy’s vintage doll collection.
It also had a bowling alley, a room dedicated specifically to cutting flowers and even an entire climate-controlled chamber for storing silver.
A barbershop, multiple gift-wrapping rooms, and a French wine and cheese room, complete with French music and side-walk tables were also among the amenities.
There’s also a tanning room, solarium and a games room along with rolling lawns, rose gardens, citrus orchards, a swimming pool, spa and tennis court.
Petra, the daughter of billionaire Bernie Ecclestone, has since given the property an overhaul adding a nightclub in the basement and several large exotic fish tanks.
The Manor also has parking space for 100 cars.
It’s the largest home in LA and among the largest family homes in the entire country, measuring more than 1,500 feet larger than the White House.
Ecclestone originally listed the home for sale in 2016, adjusting the asking price twice before a buyer was found.
Candyland’s former wrapping rooms were swapped out for a hair salon and massage parlour.
