ONE of the largest houses in the US with a staggering 123 rooms is back on the market for $165million.
Formula One heiress Petra Ecclestone sold the French-style mega mansion just three years ago for $120million to an unknown 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 among the largest in the country.
Known as The Manor, it measures at 1,500-feet larger than the White House, with a dining room fit for 22 guests, a sunroom surrounded by French doors leading to the pool, a wine cellar, bowling lanes, a tasting room, and a 7,500-square-foot master suite, Mansion Global reported.
The mansion once belonged to Charlies’ Angels creator Aaron Spelling and was built in 1991 for Spelling’s wife, Candy, and later given the nickname “Candyland”.
Petra, the daughter of billionaire Bernie Ecclestone, bought the mansion from Candy for $85million in 2011, five years after Aaron died on the estate after suffering a stroke.
She gave The Manor an eccentric makeover, even adding a nightclub in the basement and several large tanks filled with exotic fish.
Petra built a hair salon, massage parlor, and beauty salon in the room where the wife of the 90210 Beverley Hills producer had her extensive china doll collection.
Despite her changes, she kept Aaron Spelling’s film editing room behind the cinema screen and even his hand-written notes.
Last year, it was revealed that the socialite’s organization, The Petra Ecclestone Foundation, used taxpayer cash to furlough employees, to fund eight staff.
During the Spellings’ years of ownership, the 14-bedroom, 27-bathroom mansion had a room dedicated to Candy’s vintage doll collection.
It also had a bowling alley, a room dedicated specifically to cutting flowers, and an entire climate-controlled chamber for storing silver.
A barbershop, multiple gift-wrapping rooms, and a French wine and cheese room, complete with French music and side-walk tables, were also among the amenities.
There’s also a tanning room, solarium, and a games room, along with rolling lawns, rose gardens, citrus orchards, a swimming pool, spa, and tennis court.
