From the Los Angeles website: The Spelling mansion in Holmby Hills may beat out the Playboy Mansion for the deal of the year.

For the second time in five years, the 56,000-square-foot French chateau-style compound, dubbed The Manor, has hit the market. Its $200 million asking price is nearly twice what Twinkies heir Daren Metropoulos paid for the Playboy Mansion earlier this year.

The seller, British heiress Petra Stunt, acquired the five-acre estate in 2011 for $85 million. Stunt, the 27-year-old daughter of business magnate and Formula One chief Bernie Ecclestone, completed an extensive renovation of the property. At one point, she was employing up to 500 workers.

The freshly revamped seven-bedroom manor has a two-lane bowling alley and a service wing. It features a 30-foot-high entry, wine cellar, a beauty salon with massage and tanning rooms, a double staircase and a gym. The master bedroom suite alone spans 7,000 square feet with its own living room, kitchen and two-level closet. Outside, there is space to park 100 cars. The mansion, which was built in the late 1990s by Tori Spelling’s father, the late TV producer Aaron Spelling, has 123 rooms in total.

Under Stunt’s ownership, the basement was transformed into a nightclub, a giant exotic fish tank was hauled into the study, walls were clad in velvet and there were “little crystals everywhere,” according to a 2012 interview she gave to W magazine.
