The Manor is one of the largest and grandest private residences in Los Angeles. Originally built by entertainment royalty Aaron and Candy Spelling, and designed by architects James Langenheim & Associates, the property has been exquisitely reimagined. Beautifully sited on nearly five acres of flat land, the approximately 56,500-square-foot French-style mansion represents the perfect marriage of visionary design and timeless grandeur, firmly establishing its standing as the crown jewel of L.A.’s coveted Platinum Triangle.
Bordering the renowned L.A. Country Club and shielded behind gates and towering hedges, a winding driveway leads to a circular, cobblestone motor court, crowned by a stately fountain and complete with accommodations for up to 100 cars. Doors open to a magnificent entry gallery replete with marble floors, dramatic 30-foot ceilings and grand, double staircase. The opulent gallery spills into breathtaking public spaces highlighted by soaring ceiling heights, wood and marble floors, intricate molding and high-tech lighting. Masterfully designed living spaces include a stunning solarium lined with a colonnade of French doors to the rear gardens, refined formal dining room with a black marble fireplace and stunning chandelier, elegant library with wet bar, family room and oversized home theatre with coffered oak ceilings, full surround sound and wet bar. An unprecedented chef’s kitchen features restaurant-quality appliances and opens to a light-filled, junior dining room overlooking a serene reflecting pool.
Situated on the upper level, the magnificent master suite showcases a grand entrance hall, living room, office, dual sitting rooms and private kitchen. Lavish dual bathrooms boast oversized steam showers and a soaking tub, while a monumental bespoke showroom, reminiscent of the boutiques of Rodeo Drive, features voluminous dressing areas, several walk-in closets, standing jewelry islands and shoe and handbag displays, linked by two staircases. Two secondary bedroom wings hold six additional en-suite bedrooms, each with French doors overlooking the L.A. Country Club and city views.
Designed for elaborate entertaining, the mansion’s spectacular lower level holds a billiards and game room, a bar room, a two-lane bowling alley, a temperature controlled wine cellar, a fully equipped beauty salon, gym, sauna, massage and tanning rooms. 27 bathrooms, a commercial-grade elevator serving the main three floors, and expansive staff quarters, including seven individual en-suite bedrooms, are among the property’s incomparable offerings.
The extraordinary, mostly flat grounds, were impeccably conceived by renowned landscape architect Christine London. Surrounded by mature trees, a resort-caliber swimming pool with spa and pool house is situated on the south side of the property, while a championship-sized, lighted north/south-facing tennis court is situated to the north. Spanning the entire rear of the property, a sprawling, flat, park-like backyard showcases manicured lawns and paved walkways studded with mature trees, formal parterre gardens, a koi pond, Parisian lamp posts and outdoor sculptures. Extensive rose and vegetable gardens and a bucolic citrus orchard are among the property’s halcyon wonders.
Over its storied history, The Manor has played host to countless celebrity events, receiving such noteworthy guests as Prince Rainier, Jackie Kennedy and Prince Charles & Princess Diana, whose 1994 stay is commemorated by a plaque gracing the mansion’s front entry. A showpiece of unrivaled beauty, scale and pedigree, The Manor presents an extraordinary opportunity to own one of a small handful of trophy estates on exceptionally large acreage in the Platinum Triangle, just moments from downtown Beverly Hills, Rodeo Drive, The Beverly Hills Hotel, Hotel Bel-Air, UCLA and the iconic beaches of Santa Monica and Malibu.
