The Manor that Aaron Spelling Built Just Sold for a Record-Breaking $120M to Uber Co-Founder Garrett Camp
The Spelling Manor Holmby Hills Los Angeles
The massive Holmby Hills property, most recently known simply as the Manor, is considered to be the largest single-family home in Los Angeles, with a mind-numbing total of 123 rooms.
Weeks after Uber’s IPO, one of the company’s co-founders, Garrett Camp, found a very public (and rather tone-deaf) way to invest his massive earnings: he bought himself a palace from an F1 heiress for a record-breaking amount.
Garrett Camp reportedly paid $119.75 million for a well-known Los Angeles property dubbed the Manor. That’s the highest home price in Los Angeles County history and only the fourth sale to surpass the $100 million mark in L.A. history, the LA Times reports. The national record is held by a New York penthouse towering over Central Park that sold in January for a record $238 million.
Now, what’s the story of the 56,500-square-foot chateau in Holmby Hills that has the power to command a $120 million sale? For those of us that didn’t grow up in L.A. in the late ’80s and early ’90s, the massive estate may not bring back memories. But for the people of Los Angeles, The Manor has been a topic of discussion for years.
