This luxury residence just became the most expensive home in America
Built in 1991 on five acres of land in the Holmby Hills section of Los Angeles, the house is a staggering 56,500 square feet and has 123 rooms, including seven bedrooms and a service wing. The listing refers to it as the largest residence in Los Angeles.
The mansion has a long pedigree, as it was previously owned by Candy Spelling, the widow of producer Aaron Spelling. Spelling listed the property for $150 million in 2008.
It was eventually sold to Petra Stunt, the daughter of Formula One racing billionaire Bernie Ecclestone, for $85 million in 2011. Stunt tried to offload the property for $150 million in 2014, but a report says she declined a matching figure in 2015.

While most people associate the Playboy Mansion with scantily clad playmates and sex-fueled debauchery, it served as the childhood home for Hugh Hefner’s sons.

For Cooper, it was quite the opposite: a child’s wonderland fueled by Indiana Jones-inspired adventures in the Grotto, a zoo full of exotic animals, and epic games of hide-and-seek played in the mansion’s private forest of redwood trees.
