The mansion that late producer Aaron Spelling built in 1991 is on sale for $150 million, making it the most expensive home for sale in the US, the AP reports. The 56,500-square-foot home, the largest in Los Angeles County, sits on 4.7 acres near the Playboy Mansion. Neither the broker nor widow Candy knows exactly how many rooms the manse has, though it’s thought to be more than 100.

“You're really asking the wrong person,” said Candy Spelling. “There's a lot.” Spelling vetted real estate agents partly by gauging the response of her dog Madison. If he didn’t like them, no deal. Among the amenities: five fireplaces, four wetbars, a bowling alley, waterfalls, a gift-wrapping room, an attic with hair salon, and a screening room in which the screen rises as window shades lower—a detail that came to Candy in a dream.
