Candy Spelling's $47 Million Move
All of Los Angeles is buzzing over the news of Candy Spelling's big real estate move. The 62-year-old wife of the late Aaron Spelling is planning to move out of her mansion, a 123-room, 56,500-square-foot mansion on six acres in the Holmby Hills area, and into a condo. But don't feel too sorry for Candy, while her new home will be less than a third the size of the old one, it is still a whopping 16,500 square feet and sits atop The Century building which is being built next door to the Century Plaza Hotel on Avenue of the Stars. The condo will have 360-degree views of the city all the way to the ocean.
Spellings new condo went for $2,848 per square foot which works out to an astounding $47 million, a record for a Los Angeles condo. The LA Times has a few details of Candy's new two-story pad. The lower floor will include a living room with two working fireplaces, a dining room for 25 guests, and staff quarters while the top floor will be home to the bedrooms, a massage room, exercise room, conservatory with rose garden, swimming pool and a deck. The master suite alone is 4,000 square feet. She will move in next year which means that the Spelling mansion may soon be on the market. Rumors of offers have been swirling for a while but we could even see a listing now unless it sells quickly and privately to someone willing to spend around $150 million for a home with a bowling alley and a gift wrapping room among its many luxuries.
