Most expensive home in the U.S. plans to stay that way

The list of the world's most expensive homes was published this week at, and Candy Spelling's Holmby Hills estate, dubbed the Manor, remains the leader among U.S. residential properties at $150 million. At only eight months on the market, it's still a youngster as listings in this price range go, so don't expect a $149-million discount any time soon. More details are included in my story at

One side note not included in the story is that the 56,500-square-foot French chateau was originally called  L'Oiseau (meaning the bird) for it's W or wing shape. Since it came on the market, owner Spelling has published a bestseller entitled "Stories From Candyland" about her life and the house and, for better or worse, Candyland seems to be sticking as its latest nickname.
