The most expensive home in the U.S. was recently on the market and its sale is the subject of a new HGTV reality show. “Selling Spelling Manor” tells the tale of Candy Spelling’s decision to downsize by putting her 57,000-square mansion on the market and commissioning a 16,000 foot penthouse condo at the top of a Century City skyscraper.
Candy is the widow of Aaron Spelling, a TV mogul who produced some of the top shows of the 70s and 80s. The asking price of the manor was originally $150 million, but Candy accepted an $85 million offer from a 22-year-old British heiress named Petra Ecclestone. The house was on the market for at least two years – even the most expensive homes have seen a recent drop in prices.
