Petra Ecclestone - Petra Ecclestone To Buy Most Expensive Home In America?
Fashion designer Petra Ecclestone has purchased the former mansion of '90210' TV producer Aaron Spelling, dubbed the most expensive home in America.
Petra Ecclestone has bought late TV producer Aaron Spelling's old house.
The fashion designer - whose father is billionaire Formula One boss Bernie Ecclestone, who is worth a reputed $4 billion - has purchased the 57,000 sq ft French chateau-style mansion in Los Angeles, which was dubbed the most expensive home in America because of its $150 million asking price.
Widow of the 83-year-old TV producer - who was responsible for 'Beverly Hills', '90210', 'Melrose Place' and 'Dynasty' - Candy Spelling is thought to have accepted a much lower price for the property, which was built on the site of Bing Crosby's former house, but the final sum was not disclosed.
The house - which sprawls over five acres - has been on the market for the last two years and contains more than 100 rooms and enough car parking spaces for 100 vehicles.
Petra - who already owns a £56 million six-storey Grade II listed house in Chelsea - plans to split her time between America and London.
