Like so many of the shows he created, Aaron Spelling’s Los Angeles home, dubbed “the Manor,” is sprawling, larger than life and glitzy. In 1983, the creator of such shows as
Charlie’s Angels, Dynasty, and
90210 bought Bing Crosby’s Bel Air mansion and bulldozed it, erecting a 56,500-square-foot, 123-room mansion. It’s the largest house in
Los Angeles County and contains a doll museum built for his daughter, Tori, an indoor skating rink, specialized flower-cutting and gift-wrapping rooms, and an entire floor of
closets. When Aaron Spelling’s widow put the house up for sale in 2009, it was the most expensive home on the U.S. market, at
$150 million .
