If you watched Selling Spelling Manor on HGTV like I did, then you saw Candy Spelling moving all of her stuff out of the ginormous 56,000 square-foot house when it was bought by the 23-year old British heiress Petra Ecclestone for $85 million.
In W Magazine, Petra let cameras inside to see some of the work she’s had done on the old place. Here’s how the grand entry hall and staircase looked when we last saw it as Candy left for the last time:
Here’s how the entry hall looks now that Petra has given it a makeover:
According to W:
“The interior of the Manor, once the domain of acres of chintz…has been Petra-fied. Designed in three weeks and installed in nine, a feat that required 500 workers and the tireless attention of the celebrity designer-builder Gavin Brodin, the house has been transformed from an old Dynasty-like set to a massive VIP lounge.
“Five thousand square feet of white marble lashed with thick black stripes pave the foyer; black carpet streaks up the sweeping double staircase to the second floor. Dark velvets line the walls, and little crystals sparkle everywhere.”

Meanwhile, Candy Spelling downsized to a luxury $47 million penthouse condo in The Century building that has a mere 16,500 square feet–the size of her former attic! Hope she can make it work. I’m sure it’ll be an adjustment.
Last week Tori announced on her website that they’re expecting Baby #4. Wonder if they’ll be building an addition onto their new place or if the babies will share a nursery?
