Candy Spelling Sells $150 Million Mansion To Petra Ecclestone For $85 Million
Spelling's widow, Candy Spelling, put her 57,000-square-foot Los Angeles mansion on the market in 2009 for $150 million. On Thursday 'July 14', it finally sold, but according to the Wall Street Journal, for only 43 percent of its asking price.
The 22-year-old buyer, Petra Eccletsone is the daughter of British billionaire Formula One racing boss Bernie Ecclestone.
The $85 million price tag, though lower than Candy Spelling's desired price, is still one of the highest ever paid for a single family home in the U.S. The home, known as 'The Manor', has 14 bedrooms, 27 bathrooms, a bowling alley, beauty salon, gift-wrapping rooms and parking for 100 cars.
Petra Eccletsone, launched a line of men's wear 'which has since been liquidated' at the age of 19, is set to marry fiance James Stunt in August.
