The biggest home in Los Angeles County is ready for a new nickname: The 56,500-square-foot Manor, dubbed Candyland after owner Candy Spelling, has been sold to another wealthy socialite, British heiress Petra Ecclestone, in an all-cash deal for $85 million. As steep as that price is, it's not a record or even close to what Spelling was asking. The priciest Southland home transaction was the 2000 sale of an 8-acre estate in Bel-Air to financial executive Gary Winnick in a deal that included the trade of other land, for a total value of about $94 million.

Elvis slept here. A Midcentury Modern home in Palm Springs that was once leased to the "King of Rock 'n' Roll" Elvis Presley is up for sale at $9.5 million. Billed as his “honeymoon retreat,” the 1960 house is also notable for its unusual shape. The residence  consists of four circle-shaped living spaces on three levels. Curved walls of stone, a round kitchen island and a circular fireplace in the center of the living room echo the structural shape. Expanses of glass take in views of the Santa Rosa Mountains and Coachella Valley.

Call it A-List Los Angeles. L.A. County has plenty of high-end neighborhoods, from Palos Verdes Estates to Pasadena. But when it comes to finding the best mansions in town, there's still nothing quite like the golden corridor from Beverly Hills to Malibu. This Westside area boasts one of the world's great concentrations of premier residential estates. The highest-price home transaction ever in California took place in this territory: the 2000 sale of an 8-acre Bellagio Road estate in Bel-Air by Dole Food Co.'s billionaire owner, David Murdock, to financial executive Gary Winnick in a $95-million deal.

If you've been scouring the Web for photos of "Twilight" actress Kristen Stewart's new digs in Los Feliz, you may have passed over the one of a square of lawn. But that's the image a real estate agent has inserted online and is visible through the guest sign-on at theMLS.com . The listing, which was withdrawn from the Multiple Listing Service, didn't show that it had closed in late August at $2.195 million and that the property was purchased in the name of a trust. Here are three great examples of the ways agents try to keep supposedly secret home sales out of the public eye. Set in gated Laughlin Park, which will afford the actress one barrier of security, the 3,361-square-foot house features a carved wood front door, an open floor plan, a veranda, a den, an office, two fireplaces, four bedrooms and 41/2 bathrooms.
