Candy Spelling, television producer Aaron Spelling's wife, is still waiting for a buyer for her $150 million mansion, which is said to be the most expensive home in the world.
Candy, 65, mother of reality star Tori Spelling, had put her Los Angeles home, 'The Manor', located at 594 South Mapleton Dr. in Los Angeles, on the market two years ago and the price tag has remained the same since the listing.
The French chateau-style 5250-square meter mansion was built on two hectares at Holmby Hills at a cost of $40 million in 1990 by Spelling. He was a television producer known for such series as Dynasty, Charlie's Angels, The Love Boat, Beverly Hills, 90210, and Charmed.
The Manor has 123 rooms on more than 4.6 acres. It is the largest home in Los Angeles County.
The house was designed by architects James Langenheim & Associates. The two-story house is 51.5 feet high with a basement and an intermediate level for closets between the second story and attic.
The house includes a screening room, gym, bowling alley, three rooms for wrapping presents, four two-car garages, tennis court, and pool. The parking lot accommodates 100 vehicles, and there are also 16 carports.
The site had previously been the home of Bing Crosby, who lived in a house built in 1932 by George B. Kaufman. Spelling razed the Crosby mansion.
The crown jewel of one of the most exclusive neighborhoods in Southern California, according to the listing in Hilton and Hyland.
The Manor is one of the most famous homes ever built, and set a new standard for exclusive residential estates. Built by entertainment royalty Candy and Aaron Spelling, the estate rests on approximately 4.7 acres of rare, flat land in Holmby Hills, the listing described.

Although the listing is labeled as a “Single-Family Home” on Hilton and Hyland, the home offers 14 bedrooms. The Grand Entry welcomes guests with a double grand staircase and exquisite 30 foot ceiling. Other accoutrements of the “home” include a projection room, antique fireplaces from France, two-lane bowling alley, gourmet kitchen, flower cutting hall, and more.
RumorFix has reported that a rumor was whipped up recently that Oprah is looking at the mansion owned by Spelling, but it has not confirmed the rumor.
Candy is busy co-producing a 50-year revival of the Broadway musical How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying, starring Daniel Radcliffe. She's also intent on downsizing to the two-level penthouse in The Century, which is near Westfield Century City shopping centre.
