Candy Spelling’s Mansion Sold To Petra Ecclestone

Candy Spelling reportedly sells Holmby Hills estate

The beauty of living in L.A. is not style. It is that any style goes. Presumably some people think that the Spelling Mansion is crazy huge and just over the top. I think that whatever it is deemed it is a part of Holmby History. There are plenty of homes that are better and plenty that are not. I think there are somegreat French Projects in the L.A. country Club Area

I get to recall the day I pulled up to the estate to work for the Spellings. I was swarmed by a heard of Security that would make the FBI and CIA look like a bunch of keystone cops. Really, I was just pulling up to do my job and it was like the Love Boat security team thought I might have rolled into the motor court to quickly. Good thing I drove up in my Audi A6 not my Chevy Tahoe.

So impressively, the gardens are just spectacular. Set to work on the decorative lighting for the arbors, I designed and manufactured under my previous company a really great set of decorative Bronze light fixtures fit for royalty. At Least the producer of Charlie’s Angeles enjoyed our design efforts. Manufactured to perfection.

Now, I think that whether 22 year old Petra is ready for the house or not, she has the opportunity to hang in L.A. lifestyle as a billionaire heiress should. Our clientele has been the greatest advocated for spending money on fantasy and posh homes. To date there have been at least 22 homes in Beverly Park my self and my teams have design and manufactured custom lights for. it is 90210 and others.

Lanterns and chandeliers have graced the homes of 5 other estates on the Holmby Streets. Jimmy Iovine ahs a spectacular White brick estate. Historic Architecture still graces the streets of Bel Air areas.

Wikipeda defines The Manor, also known as Spelling Manor is a mansion located in the Holmby Hills neighborhood of Los Angeles, California. It was the home of television producer Aaron Spelling. Built in 1988, it is the largest home in Los Angeles County.
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Manor_(Los_Angeles,_California) The widow of legendary TV producer Aaron Spelling put the 4.7-acre residence up for sale more than two years ago at $150 million. Petra Ecclestone, the daughter of British billionaire and Formula One Chief Executive Bernie Ecclestone, is in escrow to buy the property, a report says.

Candy Spelling’s sprawling estate in Holmby Hills, which has bragging rights as the most expensive residential listing in the U.S., reportedly has been sold to a 22-year-old British heiress

I thinkt that Huffington Post and lots of other L.A. papers along with the British news are all reporting on this deal. Good for all of them TMZ should have some good stuff on this too.Celebrity estates and Celebrity Architects like Robert Stern and Richard Landry of today design these luxury estates. Firms like ours Manufacture lighting and decorative Iron for these homes. My team at Architectural Detail Group always has the discretion of keeping the clients best interest at hand. I love it when fantasy becomes reality and the builders build their dreams.

Spelling, widow of legendary TV producer Aaron Spelling, put the 4.7-acre residence up for sale more than two years ago at $150 million, and she held firm to that price despite one of the worst real estate downturns in generations.
LOS ANGELES (LALATE) –wrote;  Aaron Spelling Mansion (photos below), inherited by Candy Spelling, has been sold to Petra Ecclestone. The Aaron Spelling Mansion listing price was $150 million. The estate sold for $85 million to Ecclestone, daughter of Formula One head Bernie Ecclestone (net worth $4 billion

The Manor

That’s all crazy, but the craziness doesn’t stop there. This huge house was just sold to 22-year-old Petra Ecclestone for $ 85 million. Now you’re asking how a 22 year old has that much money, right? Well, she’s a Formula One racing heiress, my friends! Her father is the billionaire Bernie Ecclestone (worth more than 4 Billion, according to Forbes), and of course she had to have the most expensive house in America. Petra is getting married soon and will spend most of her time between London and Los Angeles.

Hearst Castle, History and Legacy

In 1919 William Randolph Hearst instructed famed San Francisco architect Julia Morgan:

 “Miss Morgan, we are tired of camping out in the open at the ranch in San Simeon and I would like to build a little something”

That little something turned out to be a 165 room classic, opulent and elegant estate located half way between Los Angeles and San Francisco that is now a State Monument.

The 40,000 acre ranchland where Hearst Castle is located was originally purchased in 1865  by George Hearst, and inherited by his only son William Randolph in 1919 at which time the property encompassed 250,000 acres known as Camp Hill, where familly and guests where to “rough it out”.

Construction of what is now known as the Castle concluded in 1947 and includes the main house “Casa Grande” and 3 guest houses, all in Mediterranean Revival style and housed Hearst’s impressive European and Mediterranean art collection, thet includes, ceilings and mosaics used troughout the estate.

Now a days, Hearst Castle its considered a State Park and Museum, with 4 diferent tours offered trought the day. It was given to the people of California by the Hearst Corporation in 1957, and guided tours started in 1958.
