The sale broke the record for the highest home price in Los Angeles County ever, the Los Angeles Times reported. The previous record was set in 2016 for two homes – one of which was the famous Playboy Mansion – that went off the market at a price tag of $100 million.

The sale on Spelling's mansion was slated to close Tuesday.

Spelling’s widow Candy Spelling sold the home to Petra Ecclestone, the daughter of billionaire Bernie Ecclestone, for $85 million eight years ago. Ecclestone was the home’s latest owner and it was not immediately clear who bought the manor from her. At the time of its sale, the manor was listed for $160 million.

Some custom rooms included a barbershop and flower-cutting rooms. About 30 staffers worked at the home when the Spellings lived there.
