    I hope the comic, catastrophic quake in southern CA swallows this ghastly place WHOLE along with all the other psychotically humongous temples to egomania, pretension, materialism and greed there, too.

        Sounds like you just might just be on the exact same page as me, Chris. Do you think that incomprehensibly gargantuan airport-pitifully-masquerading-as-a-single-family-home and all the other shopping mall sized “houses” are just as revolting as I do? They the make up about, maybe, 25-30% of the posts here and as far as anyone with any true architectural knowledge, taste and comprehension knows that they’re irrevocably rendered vile due to their truly useless and egomaniacal size and off-the-charts pretention?

          Lmaoo! Yes, 9 times out of 10 the pool houses are more architecturally significant than the “homes” themselves.

    What happened?….did Petra (Ecclestone) finally run out of ideas to ruin the decor of this grand estate? Good thing her dad Bernie can afford to eat the loss on the sale of this place (she bought it for $85M and I think she’ll be lucky to get $70M for it.)

      Ruin? Even if the glammed up contemporary look isn’t your cup of tea, I can’t imagine how anyone could think the horrendous decor of Candy was better.

        Candy’s decor was far from horrendous. It was classic traditional, not the trendy, contemporary monstrosity that it is now. I’ve noticed that a lot of yourng people today refer to classic/elegant home decor as “Old Lady” or “Old Fashion” when it’s not. I don’t get the obsession with this modern/contemporary, clean line look. It’s cold, and lacking greatly in creativity/imagination, elegance and class. There’s absolutely no conversation pieces within the entire decor of this home now. Sad, because I remember when it was being built. She ruined it with her tacky remodeling. She’s delusional if she thinks she’s going to get $200 million for it.

        PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE show me where I mentioned anything….anything at all….about Candy Spelling? Because I can’t find it. All I did was mention Petra’s decorating taste and the utterly colossal stupidity of buying a house that’s way too big for her needs..

    Alrighty. Yes, it has been remodeled with a leaning towards contemporary décor, howsomever, I can’t say I don’t like it. There are some stunningly beautiful places, and the sheer size of the rooms gives them all the credibility mansion public rooms ought to have. 56,500 square feet divided by 123 rooms gives an average room size of almost 460 sq. feet – that means a design without compromise – the architect could check all the boxes as he went. I wonder, though, since it’s not mentioned, does this mansion have at least 2 elevators? It should!

    Pretty much any decor is better than the standard old-lady-with-money-outdated-but-grand look Candy had going on here, so yes, I prefer Petra’s decor to Candy’s. But what she did was to replicate the look of EVERY SINGLE MANSION in Britain. How many C&C knock offs can the rich be subjected to?

    Other issue. What’s with the price point? We’ve seen this with the Stallion mansion too. Original owners finally sell their house for less than half their original asking price. New owners then immediately put house up for sale for more than the original owners couldn’t sell it for. Does she really think the changes she made are worth $115 million? Let’s face it, at most she did $5 million modifications. But let’s be generous and double that. So now she’s spent $95 million on it. How does a 210% price increase seem rational. Forget if the price is justifiable, because all house flippers justify their prices. What I don’t get is how this seems rational to her and the listing agents. Especially when neither she nor Candy could get it sold for $150 million. If it doesn’t sell when it’s at $150 million, why would it sell at $200 million?

    If I was going to blow $200 million on a roof, the last thing I would buy is a used house. For that kind of loot, you could huddle with a busload of brokers, architects and custom builders, and come up with the perfect site for the perfect mansion, and have absolutely everything done your way. Once the price hits the high 7 or 8 digits, it’s a hard sell to compromise, or settle for anything.

      The problem with this logic is… in Los Angeles there aren’t “perfect” sites in A+ locations just sitting there. This is 5 acres on the “most exclusive street in LA”… a lot that also is on the Los Angeles Country Club… nothing else like that really exists unless you bought the Playboy Mansion and tore it down and Owlwood.

      Also, to build a house like this takes 3, 4 and 5 years. A lot of titans of business who are the types who have the money to have this type of property don’t have the time or don’t want to invest the time of constructing a mega-mansion.

        But who in even half their right mind would want to live in Governor Moonbeam’s Peoples’ Republic of California, when there are free states close by.

          Where on Earth do you think you’re going to build a salable $200mm house in the US outside of CA? I don’t think its the greatest place or anything, but— LA is about the only place in the US a $200mm house MIGHT be salable.

            Good point. But I wonder just how many 9 digit prices are actually paid. I would imagine most are negotiated down or the listing is withdrawn altogether for lack of action. Asking prices, especially for mega-mansions, are rarely final.

    The piece of garbage DNA shit that owns this (via nepotism) is only 27 years old.
