I have a great job. Where else would I get an email from Candy Spelling's "people" asking me to come interview her at her 56,500 square foot home?
Spelling, widow of famed television producer Aaron Spelling ("Charlie's Angels", "Love Boat" etc.), has been trying to sell 'The Manor' for a year. She's asking $150 million, which makes it the most expensive home on the market in the world.
Mrs. Spelling figures CNBC's global audience might include potential buyers. She'd like to get the word out.
I just wanted to see the inside of this house. I did. Wow.
For such a large house, you don't feel completely overwhelmed inside. Rooms flow into one another, and they've been decorated to give it a homey feel.
"It's just too big for one person," Spelling told me, in what may be the biggest understatement in real estate history.
