We probably all wonder how it would be to live in another’s shoes….in this case, another’s home. And in this instance, “home” is an understatement. I thought you might find it entertaining to see the Estate of the original owner who brought so much entertainment to the TV world of the 60’s through the 90’s – The Love Boat, Dynasty, Beverly Hills 90210, The Smother Brothers, Melrose Place, The Mod Squad, to name a very few. Yes, Aaron Spelling, the prolific Producer of these shows, built the impressive Estate in 1988, which is still to date the largest home in Los Angeles County. It just sold for a record price and it was represented by my colleague and associate with Coldwell Banker Global Luxury.
