    It seems as though the recently reported Fleur de Lys ($125,000,000), which was being described as the most expensive house on the market and was grabbing media attention because of Mariah & Nick’s offer for the estate, has just been upstaged by widow Candy Spelling’s $150,000,000  Holmby Hills mansion entitled the “The Manor”. This grandiose estate located in Los Angeles has now become the most expensive house on the market. Take a look at a satellite birds eye view of the estate here.


    The 100+ room mansion was constructed in 1991 in place of  Bing Crosby’s house by Candy Spelling’s husband, famous Hollywood TV producer Aaron Spelling, who died in  2006 at the age of 83. The gated 4.7 acre, 56,500 sq-ft Spelling Mansion features 11 bedrooms and 16 bathrooms including a barber shop and beauty parlor in the attic, china storage room, wine seller and wine tasting room, a humidity controlled silver storage room, a projection room where the screen rises from the ground with paintings, gift wrapping room, and a bowling alley in the basement. The exterior features a spa and swimming pool complex, a tennis court, a rose garden on the roof, and an extravagant motor parking lot with enough space to carry 100 high-end vehicles.

    Now that’s one big and expensive house. I wonder who will become the new owner? It could end up being Mariah & Nicks, you never know because they’re going after the top notch, so it’s not out of the question, but I guess we’ll just have to wait and see.

  • Beverly Hills Mansion May be the Worlds Most Expensive House Still on the Market

    A mansion in Beverly Hills  named “Fleur de Lys” (French for lily flower), which has been on the market since 2007, has been described by Forbes as the worlds most expensive house still on the market. The luxurious villa is still “For  Sale” at a listed price which may be astronomical for some, but not too bad for others, that is $125 million dollars. This estate measures up to about 45,000 square feet, spread across 5 acres of land with 15 bedrooms and 16 bathrooms.


    The Fleur de Lys was constructed in the 1990’s under billionaire David I Saperstein’s request for his then wife Suzanne Saperstein’s and took 5 years to complete. The house design was influenced by Louis XIV’s palace at Versailles and has been adorned with the finest statues, fabrics, crafts, paintings and all other luxurious ornaments that a home of this caliber is required to have. After David Saperstein divorced his wife Suzanna in 2006, the house was put on the market a year later. All I have to say is whoever buys this $125 million home better have a large family with a dozen kids because what are they going to do with all those rooms. Well I guess if you have enough to purchase a house like this, then you’ll have enough to fill all the spaces. Well people, there it is, a masterpiece, everyone’s dream home and no one has bought it yet. So you better hurry and jump on this one before its too late.
