Aaron Spelling's Mega-McMansion Listed for $150M -- a World Record?

Candy Spelling's 56,000-square-foot manor, listed at $150 million, just officially hit the Multiple Listing Service as the most expensive home on the market -- and not just in California, but reportedly worldwide.

The 14-bedroom, 27-bath home, located at 594 S. Mapleton Drive in Holmby Hills, has been unofficially on the market (with a lot of press) since early 2009. But this week marks its MLS debut, says co-listing agent Sally Forster Jones of Coldwell Banker, who has the listing with Jeff Hyland of Hilton & Hyland.

"When properties are for sale, being on the MLS lends credibility that it really is a property for sale as opposed to just speculation. It is a validation for the national or international discriminating buyer," Jones told HousingWatch.

The jump to the MLS may also mean that Spelling, wife of the late TV producer Aaron Spelling and mom to actress Tori, must be more than ready to leave the W-shaped mega-mansion -- even though the list price remains the same as it did prior to the MLS debut.

"There is really nothing like this property anywhere in the world," says Jones of the place that Spelling has called home since she and hubby built it in the early 1990s. "It is really like a piece of art. It is very, very special, in the most prime area in Los Angeles. It is for a buyer who will appreciate a unique estate." And Spelling believes that buyer is out there.
