    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.
