ONE of the largest homes in America with an incredible 123 rooms is back on the market for $165 million.
Formula One heir Petra Ecclestone large french villa for sale just three years ago for $120 million to an unspecified Saudi Arabian buyer.
The 56,000-square-foot single-family home in Holmby Hills holds the record for the largest home in Los Angeles and is one of the largest in the country.
Called The Manor, it’s 1,500 feet larger than the White House, with a dining room that seats 22, a solarium surrounded by French doors that lead to a swimming pool, wine cellar, bowling alley, test room and a 7,500 square foot Master Suite, Mansion Global reported.
The mansion once belonged to Aaron Spelling, creator of Charlies Angels and was built in 1991 for Candy, Spelling’s wife, and later nicknamed “Candyland”.
Petra, the daughter of billionaire Bernie Ecclestone, bought the mansion from Candy for $85 million in 2011, five years after Aaron died on the property from a stroke.
She gave The Manor a weird makeover, even adding a basement nightclub and several large tanks filled with exotic fish.
MAGAZINE 123 ROOM
Petra has built a hair salon, massage parlor and beauty parlor in the room where the 90210 Beverley Hills maker’s wife has her extensive collection of Chinese dolls.
Despite her changes, she kept Aaron Spelling’s movie editing room behind the cinema screens and even his handwritten notes.
Last year, it was revealed that the social organization, the Petra Ecclestone Foundation, used taxpayers’ cash to raise employees’ wagesto sponsor eight employees.
During the Spellings years of ownership, the 14-bedroom, 27-bathroom mansion had a room dedicated to Candy’s vintage doll collection.
It also has a bowling alley, a room dedicated to cutting flowers, and an entire climate-controlled room to store silver.
A barber shop, multiple gift wrapping rooms, and a French cheese and wine room, complete with French music and a side promenade, are also among the amenities.
There is also a solarium, solarium and games room along with a rolling lawn, rose garden, citrus grove, swimming pool, spa and tennis court.
