U.S. cable network HGTV will give viewers exclusive access to the 56,500 square foot home of the late television producer Aaron Spelling and his wife Candy.
Selling Spelling Manor premieres on December 15 at 10 p.m. EST/PST, and was shot in the 30 days that Candy Spelling had to move out of the Los Angeles manor, where the family entertained presidents, royalty and Hollywood legends, and the home that she lived in for more than 20 years with her husband, daughter and actress/reality star Tori and son Randy.
Spelling gives a tour of the mansion, which include a bowling alley, an arcade, a china room and the never-bef0re-seen 17,000 square foot attic which housed a barber shop and beauty salon. Viewers will also see Spelling Manor’s seven bedrooms, a master suite with a two-story walk-in closet, five kitchens and 27 bathrooms.
The home was sold to fashion designer Petra Ecclestone, daughter of Formula One racing magnate Bernie Ecclestone, for US$85 million in June.
“The Manor was more than just a piece of real estate; it was about a lot of love for my husband and our wonderful children, and all of the memories we created there,” said Spelling.
“In the process of downsizing, it’s nice to be able to share the things that made it feel like home. While it is hard to part with many things that made the home so special, I am looking forward to the next chapter and creating another beautiful home,” she added.
Selling Spelling Manor is executive produced by Stuart Krasnow at Krasnow Productions.
