The 120mm Question

What’s bigger than a football field, smaller than Hearst Castle, has a bowling alley and an entire floor of closets? Aaron and Candy Spelling’s 56,500-square-foot (5,250 m2) mansion in Holmby Hills. Sprawled across 6 acres (2.4 ha) on what once was the Bing Crosby estate, the house dwarfs the sizable mansions on the block and looms large over tranquil Holmby Park near Wilshire Boulevard

The recent sale of the legendary, 56,500-square-foot megamansion formerly known as the Spelling Manor in Holmby Hills, CA, for $119.75 million was the priciest residential real estate deal in the history of Los Angeles County.

Which is saying an awful lot in an area where nine-digit listing prices have become the new normal for high-end real estate. There are currently seven homes in the county on the market priced over $100 million.

The 123-room, 14-bedroom, 27-bathroom chateau now simply known as The Manor is one of the largest single-family homes in the U.S., topping the White House by about 1,500 square feet. TV mogul Aaron Spelling built it for his wife, Candy, in 1991.
