Most expensive house on the market


Candy Spelling, the widow of famous television producer Aaron Spelling and mother of Tori Spelling, has decided to list her estate for a record $150 million – the most expensive home ever listed in the United States.

The home is dubbed “The Manor” and is located in the Holmby Hills neighborhood in California.  It is the largest home in Los Angeles County at 56,500 square feet and sits on more than 4.6 acres.  The home was built in 1991 and is three stories.  The room tally exceeds 100.

Some of those rooms include: a bowling alley, wine cellar, wine tasting room, gift-wrapping room, a humidity-controlled silver storage room, China room, library, gym and media room.  There is also a 17,000 square foot attic which has a barber shop and beauty salon.  A kitchen and seven bedrooms are available to staff working in the home.  On the exterior, there is a tennis court, fountains, a waterfall, pool and spa, reflection pool, a poolhouse with a kitchen, and 16 car ports.  There’s also a garden, rooftop rose garden, and citrus orchard.  For large gatherings, there is a winding motor court that holds more than 100 cars.

Candy told The Associated Press that she let her dog, a soft-coated Wheaten Terrier, help her choose her real estate agent, Sally Forster Jones with Coldwell Banker Previews International in Los Angeles.  Her security brought her dog into the room every time she interviewed an agent.  If the dog didn’t like them, they were not chosen.

Spelling is planning to move to a two-story condo in Los Angeles that she purchased last year for $47 million.
