Spelling family home with 81 feet of beach frontage is up for sale at US$23 million
Candy Spelling, wife of the late TV producer Aaron Spelling, and mother to actress Tori Spelling, is looking to sell the Spelling Estate for US$23 million. The gorgeous home along the Pacific Coast Highway has been with the Spelling family for the past 47 years, and has been the setting for many nights of entertaining for their couple’s celebrity friends.
The house has been remodelled several times over the years but has kept its timeless sophistication and elegance that has been designed for entertaining guests.
A landscaped courtyard leads to a dramatic two-storey formal entry with ocean views. Be greeted by the living/dining great room on one side, and the family/media room on the other. The great room has a fireplace, limestone floors, wraparound windows and sliding doors that open up onto a full-width ocean view deck.
The spacious family/media room has high wood-beamed ceilings, projection screen and blackout curtains, large entertainer’s wet bar and wood floors. To catch movie screenings in the media room, state-of-the-art professional projection equipment and media storage can be found in the adjacent room.
Elsewhere on the first floor are also two offices, and a chef’s kitchen outfitted with high-end appliances. It also comes with an extravagant island and sink, breakfast bar, granite countertop and custom cabinets with ample storage. To the side are a maid’s room and bath, and a side door that leads to an outdoor shower and steps down to the beach. On the outside are a landscaped side patio and access to both the single car garage and two-car garage that also has a half-bath.
Walk up to the second storey on a carpeted central stairway with clerestory lighting, where six bedrooms with en suite bathrooms await. This includes two master suites, a guest room, linen closets and a long window seat.
In one master suite, find a kitchenette, fireplace with sitting area and built-in bookshelves for a cosy night of reading with hot cocoa. The suite also faces an enormous ocean view picture window. The lavish en suite bathroom comes with dual closets, dual vanities, dual WCs and a double-entry shower with etched glass. The second master suite features deep coffered ceilings, large windows onto the side patio and doors to a private ocean view deck.
As an added bonus to the luxury of the estate, the house also has a custom cabinet for silver storage, and a basement equipment room with generator, electrical equipment, sump pump and water softener.
