LOS ANGELES (AP) — A gigantic Los Angeles mansion built in 1991 for the late producer Aaron Spelling and his widow has been sold for $119.75 million.

The Los Angeles Times says the sale that closed Tuesday is the highest home price ever in Los Angeles County.

Set on 4.7 acres (1.9 hectares) in Holmby Hills, the 56,600-square-foot (5,258-square-meter) chateau is the largest home in Los Angeles.

The unidentified buyer was represented by a Beverly Hills real estate firm.

Spelling produced such TV series as “Charlie’s Angels,” ”Dynasty,” ”Beverly Hills 90210″ and “Melrose Place.”

After his death in 2006, his widow Candy sold the mansion for $85 million to Petra Ecclestone, daughter of Formula One billionaire Bernie Ecclestone.

She made modifications and the home now has 123 rooms, including 14 bedrooms and 27 bathrooms.
