    Spelling Mansion for Sale

    http://www.usmagazine.com/blog/2006/...sion-for-sale/


    Any takers? only $150m. perhaps Tom Cruise?

    one would think it would only be suitable for a hotel, but i would imagine zoning laws would put a stop to that.

    i'm not surprised Candy has moved out: it's too big, IMO.

    Wonder if they can make a hotel out of it.

    I would doubt it as i imagine others who live in the vicinity wouldn't be pleased at increased traffic.

    Nice pad! I would LOVE to live in that house. The heating/cooling alone is probably more than I could afford.

    You know what? i wouldn't love to live in that monstrosity. too, too big and impersonal.

    give me a lovely little Alpine home in Bavaria and i'd be happy.

    Our local news just reported this is only a rumor?! But I don't know if that is just another rumor also.

    Clearly, they are partners and have been for some time. i understand Mr Spelling was afflicted by alzheimer's. therefore he probably wasn't cognescent of the affair.

    i have no aspertions to cast upon Spelling's wife for seeking companionship under the circumstances. i haven't walked in her moccasins, but i have witnessed the devastation alzheimer's brings to families.

    i imagine part of the ruckas between she and her daughter may have something to do with the extra-curicular relationship though.

    She's not selling - either that or she's gotten so much flack she decided to wait.

    http://people.aol.com/people/article...211096,00.html

    The Manor houses four bars, three kitchens , a theater, a gym, an Olympic-size swimming pool, a doll museum , a separate servants' wing, a 6,000-sq.-ft. guest house, eight double-car garages, tennis courts, a gazebo, a greenhouse, 12 fountains, six formal gardens and a room just for gift wrapping.

    Has a picture of her for those that were curious.

    there we have it then: it's not for sale. at present.

    Paper Doll and i seem to agree we'd just rattle round such a big place anyway.

    I like a place with a warm homey, quaint feel to it.. A big mansion like that is just too much.. Hotel is right.. hehe I wouldn't mind have a guest area though.. 3 bedrooms, 2 baths, ONE kitchen is plenty for me.. PLUS a guest house..

    i think im the only person whose dreamhouse was a tiny trailer. after living most of my life in huge old farmhouses, walking miles just doing daily chores, now i can clean this cozy little home in no time.

    LOL! 6,000 square ft is too big for me! I couldn't even maintain the guest house! Let alone the mansion itself. Give me a cabin in the woods, on the shore of a lake.... I'm set.
