Aaron Spelling’s Holmby Hills mansion is up on the market for a mere $150 million – that’s right, $150 MILLION. Apparently no one informed the Spelling estate that we’re in a housing slump and homes just aren’t going for what they used to. The $150 million asking prices for the Spelling mansion, known as “The Manor”, makes the property the most expensive home for sale in the United States.
If you’re interested, the home was built in a quaint French chateau style and has 56,500 square feet on 4.6 acres and is the largest home in all of Los Angeles County. Built in 1991 the home is a lavish display of excess with three stories, a winding driveway and some 30 foot high ceilings. There are estimates that there are more than 100 rooms in the home but no official count could be found. Beyond the regular rooms the Spellings home features a bowling alley, wine cellar, wine tasting room, gift-wrapping room, silver storage room, China room, a barber shop and beauty salon, a library, gym, media room and a screening room.
The exterior of the home rivals the interior with tennis courts, fountains, a waterfall, pool, spa, reflection pool, pool house complete with kitchen, 16 car ports, an 18th Century styled garden, a citrus orchard and a rooftop rose garden.
The home counts as its neighbors the LA Country Club and the Playboy Mansion, which could be part of the reason the price tag is so high.
