A huge real estate record was set in Los Angeles County this week, with the most expensive home ever sold in the area going for $119.75 million. Whoa. Even more impressive: Our beloved Million Dollar Listing Los Angeles brokers David Parnes and James Harris were some of the listing agents!
And if you recognize the home, dubbed “The Manor,” there’s a reason why: It was built for the late Aaron Spelling and his wife, Candy, back in the early ‘90s. Set on 4.7 acres, the 56,500-square-foot home (FYI: that is bigger than the White House!) has 14 bedrooms, 27 bathrooms, a tennis court, a hair salon, a bowling alley, and a whole lot more. Spelling sold it to heiress Petra Ecclestone (her dad is Formula One billionaire Bernie Ecclestone) eight years ago for $85 million, which means she’s making a tidy profit off the home with this latest sale.
Let’s take a look inside the sprawling property, shall we?
There are entryways... and then there is this. With double staircases and a 30-foot ceiling, this sets the standard for the extravagant home.
A Sprawling Living Room
Big enough for not one, not two, but three seat areas (and a bar, and a piano), this main-floor space is simply stunning.
That's Right, A SPA!
Pedicure stations? Check. Manicure stations? Check. Hair styling stations? Check. For $119 million, it turns out you never need to leave the house to get your glam.
What would a home be without a subterranean, two-lane bowling alley? We're especially loving the room's masculine textures and color palette.
Flanking the enormous house is a championship tennis court nestled amidst vast lawns and formal gardens. The overhead lights mean that nighttime games can happen, too.
Well, there you have it, folks. David and James have gone ahead and sold the most expensive home in Los Angeles' history. What can they possibly do next?!
