It’s official! Despite rumours Petra Ecclestone was not the buyer of the Spelling mansion in Holmby Hills, she officially closed on the estate today, according to Christie’s International Real Estate.

Ecclestone paid $85 million for the estate, which had an asking price of $150 million.

The manor, which belonged to Candy Spelling, had been on the market since March 2009 and features 123 rooms and 56,500 square feet of space on more than 4.6 acres.

There are three gift wrapping rooms, a screening room, gym, bowling alley, a tennis court, and pool, and a 100-car parking lot.
