Not many Americans knew who Petra Ecclestone was until they heard the 22 year-old stunning beauty bought Candy Spelling's massive manse in Holmby Hills.

Ecclestone bought "America's Most Expensive Home," according to the Wall Street Journal.

Ecclestone is a 22-year old British heiress whose parents are Formula One CEO Bernie Ecclestone and former Armani model Slavica, who recently divorced. Petra's sister Tamara is a stunner as well.

The property is a 57,000-square-foot French chateau-style house originally listed at $150 million. The LA Times reported that Ecclestone snapped it up for $85 million. She has a $91 million house in Chelsea, England too.

With more than 100 rooms and a "Gone With the Wind"-style staircase, bowling alley and a gift wrapping room. The "Manor" was built by producer Aaron Spelling and his wife, Candy.

This home is part of a string of properties that Eccleston owns.  The heiress plans an August wedding to businessman and London nightclub fixture James Stunt too. It was reported her dad Bernie bought Petra a brand new, $1.3 million Bugatti Veyron as an engagement gift.
