LOS ANGELES, Calif. -- Candy Spelling has finally sold her palatial Los Angeles area home to 22-year-old British heiress Petra Ecclestone, Access Hollywood has confirmed.
According to The Wall Street Journal, the 57,000-square foot home in the Holmby Hills area of LA, was the highest priced piece of real estate in the U.S., listed for a whopping $150 million. The final closing price for the estate, which has been on the market since March 2009, has not been disclosed.
The humble abode, which has over 100 rooms, includes a double staircase that was inspired by “Gone With the Wind,” a flower-cutting room, bowling alley, beauty salon, multiple gift-wrapping rooms, china room and a “Prince Charles suite,” who once stayed at the Spelling home.
Candy and the late Aaron Spelling bought the property in the ‘80s and built the French chateau-style home in 1991.
Petra, an heiress to a Formula One racing fortune, also reportedly owns a six-story home in the Chelsea neighborhood of London, which reportedly set her back $90.9 million.
As for Candy, she’s downsized to a 15,555-square-foot condominium in Century City, Calif., which she reportedly bought for $35 million.
