Aaron Spelling’s Manor Finally Sold to F1 Heiress | $85Mil
Candy Spelling’s massive 57,000 square-foot home has finally been sold to Formula One heiress, 22-year-old Petra Ecclestone. The sale marks the end of a long, dry spell for the mansion, which had been shown since 2008 and officially on the market since 2009.
The home, dubbed “The Manor”, was first listed at $150 million, and sits on five acres in the exclusive Holmby Hills neighborhood. The French chateau-style house was built by legendary TV producer Aaron Spelling and his wife, Candy, in 1991. It boasts a staircase inspired by the iconic stairway in “Gone with the Wind”, fourteen bedrooms and twenty-seven bathrooms. There are also special rooms dedicated to activities as specific as gift-wrapping, flower-cutting and storing silverware, in addition to the de rigueur bells and whistles expected of a luxury estate: wine cellar, bowling alley, screening room, library, and gym.
The buyer, Petra Ecclestone, is the daughter of billionaire Bernie Ecclestone, and the future heiress of her father’s Formula One racing empire. The Wall Street Journal reports that she plans on splitting her time between London and Los Angeles, in advance of her August wedding to businessman James Stunt.
