The Spelling Manor in Bel Air has finally found a buyer – despite its epic $150 million price-tag. You have to admit, that in itself is pretty outrageous – not too many people are throwing around that kind of pocket-change these days, even if they’ve got it. We shudder to think of the property taxes on this thing:

 

But what’s even more surprising is the fact that the lucky(?) new owner is a twenty-two year old British chick named Petra Ecclestone. It goes without saying that her father is a billionaire many times over, but it’s still a bit strange. After all, Petra’s dad recently bought her a flat in Chelsea for fifty-six thousand pounds, according to the Zillow blog. And what are the odds that two relatively obscure celebrities (Candy Spelling is the home’s previous owner) would occupy such a tremendously flamboyant house?

In fact, there’s no proof yet that this gargantuan “manor” has actually sold – no one knows the sale price, and celeb real estate snoop-extraordinaire the Real Estalker suggests that the claim might be fake. Still, Curbed.com, Zillow, and the Wall Street Journal have all reported Ecclestone as the buyer.
